The Renault Laguna and the Renault Latitude, in their first and third generation since 2007 and 2010 respectively, are in a desperate need of a replacement. Both these slow-selling midsize cars will be replaced later this year with a single model, says a new report from Automotive News Europe. Citing the words of Jerome Stoll, Chief Performance Officer of Renault, the report suggests that the new midsize car will be available in sedan and station wagon variants, while the coupe version will be dropped.
The new car will have a distinctive design and offer upscale features, such as head-up display for instance, indicates the report. While technical details still remain a mystery, the company has revealed at least one major detail that the new car will be based on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s new Common Module Family (CMF) architecture, says the report. The new sedan and station wagon will be high quality products with “fluid and emotional” styling, adds the story.
Citing a report by L’argus.fr, the new D segment model will be unveiled on July 6 and go on sale in September this year. The car will compete with Volkswagen Passat, Ford Mondeo, Skoda Superb, Mazda 6 and the likes.
