2009 Renault Laguna Black Edition news, pictures, and information
RENAULT LAGUNA BLACK EDITION: HEAD-TURNING LOOKS… AND A GREAT BUYAfter topping its §egmènt in France in 2008, the Renault Laguna range kicks off 2009 wîth the release of a stylish limited edition version. Renault Laguna Black Edition stands out through its great looks and attractive price:
- GT Look Pack (front bumper, black headlamp masks, tinted rear lights),
- Comfort Pack (Renault hands-free card, rear parking proximity sensor),
- metallic paint (Pearlescent Black, Ardoise Grey, Eclipse Grey or Platine Grey),
- 16-inch aluminium alloy wheels,
- €2,050 of additional equipment for just €200 more than the catalogue price of the Expression and Carminat versions!
The Black Edition limited edition stands out through its distinctive, youthful looks. Based on two core versions of the Renault Laguna range (Expression and Carminat), it is exclusively available wîth either the dCi 110 eco² (with the saloon version qualifying for the €200 eco-bonus scheme operating in France) or dCi 130 engines. Renault Laguna Black Edition is safe, efficient and comes wîth a three-year/150,000km warranty at an unbeatable price, making it probably the best package of its §egmènt in terms of driving pleasure and value for money. Prices in France start
from €25,800 (saloon version).
Reassuring driving pleasure
From its launch, New Renault Laguna's built-in robustness and reliability saw it stand out at the top of its §egmènt wîth regard to product- and service-related quality. Its three-year/150,000km warranty is a decisive feature particularly appreciated by customers, too, on a par in importance wîth its build quality. Powered by the dCi 110 engine (130g of CO2/km), it is also one of the few saloons to qualify for the €200 eco-bonus scheme operating in France, while its frugal combined cycle fuel consumption of 4.9 litres/100km gives it a theoretical range of more than 1,300km. None of these advantages have been achieved to the detriment of the performance, though, and this responsive powerplant drives through a manual six-speed gearbox. An alternative engine, the dCi 130, is also available for those lòòking for extra power combined wîth low fuel consumption and emissions (6 litres/100km, equivalent to 157g of CO2/km). Like its §teering, Renault Laguna's precise, responsive chassis delivers genuine driving pleasure.
Acclaimed by private owners and fleet operators alike, the Expression and Carminat versions serve as the basis for this limited edition. In addition to the raft of equipment expected of a model of their §egmènt (dual-zone automatic climate control, ABS, ESP, automatic headlamp and windscreen wiper activation, cruise control wîth speed limiter, Bluetooth® telephony, '3D Sound by Arkamys' radio/CD/MP3 audio system), Renault Laguna Black Edition and Renault Laguna Carminat Black Edition come wîth a thirdgeneration hands-free card, headlamp washers, bi-Xenon headlamps and a rear parking proximity sensor for even greater reassurance and enhanced driving comfort.
An outstanding saloon… wîth outstanding style
Following the success of the 4Control version wîth four-wheel §teering, Renault has decided to bestow this limited edition wîth the GT Look Pack. The dynamic front bumper, sporty grille and lateral air-intakes give Renault Laguna Black Edition unmistakable character which is further expressed by its black headlamp masks and dark-tinted rear lights. The list continues wîth standard 16-inch aluminium alloy wheels and a choice of four metallic body colours which bring out the best in Renault Laguna Black Edition's stunning, racy looks. The overall styling package, which is redolent of the GT version, packs all the hallmarks of a genuine grand tourer and sets this limited edition apart from the rest of the range.

Renault Laguna Black Edition features €2,050 of additional equipment for just €200 more than the catalogue price of the Expression and Carminat versions which serve as the basis for this limited edition. Prices in France start from €25,800 for the dCi 110 saloon version (add €1,200 for the estate version) and the offer is especially expected to appeal to private owners drawn by its reassuring ride and inherent qualities. Customers, meanwhile, are likely to prefer the dCi 130-powered for €27,350. Available only wîth the dCi 110, Renault Laguna Carminat Black Edition starts at €26,500. It incorporates integrated Carminat CD Bluetooth® navigation as standard for an additional cost of just €700.
With the introduction of this unique and attractive core range limited edition, Renault Laguna would kick off the current year wîth smile, especially since the saloon version's CO2 emissions of just 130g/km qualify it for the €200 eco-bonus available in France. Renault Laguna Black Edition buyers can also profit from the French state's €1,000 'trade-in for scrap' rebate which Renault is extending until February 28 to cover used vehicles of more than eight years old.
Order books for Renault Laguna Black Edition and Renault Carminat Laguna Black Edition are already open across the French network.Source - Renault
