In 1993, Renault Lagoon was born, having replacedthe previous model - Renault 21, which by that time was already out of date. Two years later, a variation of the car in the body of the station wagon was presented. A total of more than two million cars were produced in the first generation.

The transmission is either a five-speed manual or an automatic.
In terms of design, the Lagoon is significantly different inthe best side of the previous model in the lineup, Renault 21. True, and she has flaws - visually it seems smaller than it really is. But, unlike the same "twenty-first", the car is made not as an example of a better one.

In 1998, there was a small update of the Lagoon. It was not yet a full-fledged Renault Laguna 2, but only its predecessor, the Laguna 1 Phase 2. One of the most notable innovations was the fog lamps, the shape of which became rounded. Also, a number of new engines became standard equipment, and in some countries the standard equipment set was expanded.
And, finally, in 2002 appeared completelyan updated generation - Renault Laguna 2. It was created on the same basis as the one that came out in a year Nissan Primera. More engines were added, and many new items appeared in the list of optional equipment. The basic equipment was also significantly supplemented. Now the opening, closing and plant of the car was carried out not with a key, but with a special card, similar to a credit card. As in the case of the first generation, more than two million models were produced.
