It's wholly unscientific but nevertheless throws up some interesting numbers. If you've got five minutes, fire up the Auto Trader website, limit the search to cars built since 2008 and compare the numbers you get back from the medium range coupe category. You'll find plenty of Sciroccos, quite a few 370Zs and Caymans, but only a few Renault Laguna Coupes. Rather worryingly for Renault, the paltry sales of the coupe were virtually matched by those of the Laguna hatch but that's another story. If you value an element of exclusivity, the Laguna coupe might well pique your interest.
But isn't exclusivity just a weaselly way of pitching unpopularity? In effect, yes, but it's worth remembering that some cars make much smarter used buys than new and we suspect that the Renault Laguna Coupe matches that description to the letter. So pay attention, don't turn the page and learn a bit about this rather interesting contender.
The Laguna Coupe wasn't Renault's finest hour but then sometimes the most interesting used buys stem from some of the most unsuccessful new cars. This is a charming and wholly likeable vehicle that was overpriced when new but now looks much more agreeable value for money. Of course, there will be many who still couldn't countenance paying the thick end of £10,000 for a rather laid-back Renault coupe, but to drive one is to love it. This Renault is a stress relieving tool par excellence and that has to be worth the price of admission alone. Hard chargers should look elsewhere but those who want something refined and elegant in the best French tradition will appreciate the Laguna Coupe's rather old school appeal.
