There was a time when the medium car segment looked set to challenge the
Australian large car as the most popular fleet and family car segment when
the Toyota Corona, Ford Telstar, Holden Camira, Mitsubishi Sigma and Nissan
Bluebird/Pintara were all built in Australia and offered big savings in
purchase price and running costs.
Apart from the Toyota Camry 4, this segment featured imports only as it
slumped to an all time low of 5.4 per cent of total sales in 2002. Small
cars had grown physically to such an extent that they performed the same
function as a medium car at an average saving of around 40 per cent in
This decline has reversed to such an extent that the medium car segment has
been running at over 8 per cent market share for August, September and
October 2006, perhaps even higher as several medium-sized imports are
classified as prestige models. As small car sales level out, medium car
sales have arguably growin at the same rate that the large car segment has
When Renault's most successful years in Australia were built on quirky,
front-drive liftbacks with flexible cabin space and low running costs
priced the same as a larger Australian family car, the latest Laguna II
2.2dCi Liftback may generate the turnaround marque has been chasing in this
Keen pricing has slashed the solid $57,990 ask for the Laguna Privilege V6
auto discontinued in 2005 to just $46,990 for the single fully-equipped turbodiesel auto that has replaced the
entire Laguna range on the local market.
This keen new price is even $2000 less than the first Laguna V6 launched in
1995 as an addition to Volvo showrooms before it was dropped in 1996.
The latest Laguna II is a major facelift of the all new Laguna that was
relaunched in March 2002 by the current Nissan-Renault factory network
based in Australia. Renault distribution in Australia prior to the current
arrangements was like a revolving door which killed sales and resale. This
wildcard is now in the past.
In a move that parallels the hugely popular R16 of 40 years ago, Renault
buyers can now choose a fully-equipped Laguna diesel for the same price as
a mid-range Australian large car. By specifying only the latest
four-cylinder 2.2-litre direct injection turbodiesel from the pioneering Espace people
mover, Renault has ended any confusion as to whether the Laguna was a
four-cylinder or V6 luxury car.
After claiming that this new diesel engine offers better economy than the
petrol four and is as quick as the petrol V6, Renault saw no point in
continuing with either petrol engine. Sleeker styling has slashed the Cd
back to 0.29 while providing a Renault corporate look that can make it look
too much like a Megane if you are trying to impress neighbours with your
Renault flagship purchase.
Why has it taken so long to identify the Laguna's niche? As Europe swung
over to diesel, most European companies diverted their resources into
perfecting their diesel models. Because these high-tech new models wouldn't
run on 'dirty' Australian diesel, importers like Renault had to buy time
with petrol engines that were the poor relations in Europe. This changed
dramatically in 2006 after the standard for Australian diesel fuel was
aligned with Europe for new Euro III emissions standards.
Alas there was a further wait as manufacturers developed state-of-the-art
automatic versions when European diesels are mostly manuals. Like Peugeot
and Volkswagen, Renault can now really strut its stuff in the diesel arena.
Thus the Laguna is the first of a new diesel range that will extend to the
Megane and Scenic models early in 2007. While the new Laguna diesel is a
compelling combination of economy and performance, it won't deliver enough
savings at the bowser to cover the extra $10,000 in purchase price over the
best small cars.
The mid-range Ford Focus LX auto hatch at $26,990 is exactly $20,000
cheaper. It is 4341mm long, 1840mm wide, 1443mm high on a 2640mm wheelbase
with a 2.0-litre petrol engine that delivers 107kW @ 6000rpm and 185Nm @
4500rpm. Its 1300kg kerb weight contributes to a combined fuel consumption
figure of 8.0litres/100km and spritely performance if you rev it.
The Renault Laguna II is 4576mm long, 1783mm wide, 1429mm high on a 2750mm
wheelbase with a 2.2-litre turbodiesel
that delivers 102kW @ 4000rpm and 320Nm @ 1750rpm. Its 1495kg kerb weight
contributes to a combined fuel figure of 7.7lt/100km despite its diesel
engine. While Laguna performance is much stronger in the low to mid-ranges,
its gains might not be enough for some drivers to justify the $20,000 hike.

Mercedes S-Class Coupe Concept INTERIOR
The white instrument panel exudes sensual clarity. Its curved shape is
reminiscent of a whale fluke just before it re-enters the water. Like the
entire interior it is dominated by flowing lines: the upper and lower wave
create a clear structure.
The upper section of the instrument panel seems to float sensually in front
of the dashboard as a so-called top layer. The instrument panel seamlessly
transitions into the doors in a wrap-around design. The wavelike motion
continues in the door panels.
The ventilation nozzles, which among other places are housed as a
four-piece cluster in the centre of the instrument panel, have a futuristic
and highly detailed design: fins that route the air stream surround an
oblong hole. The ventilation nozzles are designed to add contrasts and are
made of a mix of white aluminium with a ceramics-like appearance and
brushed and polished aluminium.
The aluminium control elements have a functional and clean design, and
provide an exciting contrast to the organic and avant-garde shapes that
On top of the free-form surface under a reduced hood are the 30.7-cm
(12.3-inch) screens familiar from the new S-Class. They have an aspect
ratio of 8:3. In the Concept S-Class Coupé the fully glazed colour
displays are even slimmer and seem to float even more freely. As high-tech
elements they offer an exciting contrast to the sensual landscape of the
instrument panel. The colour scheme of the displays is bluish and
consequently sporty and modern.
A touch screen showing four world clocks is located on the centre console.
The driver can choose which clocks to display: To do so, the driver first
scrolls on a globe in the display and selects a time zone before a
drop-down menu offers the corresponding city selections. The world clock
concept was designed and implemented by designers and engineers at the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Center in Palo Alto, California, USA.
The central command unit on the centre console looks like a shiny jewel.
Its extremely high-quality "black diamond" surface creates depth of field.
The "black diamond" method uses the chemical CVD (chemical vapour
deposition) gas phase process to deposit a precious metal on a high-sheen
chrome surface at temperatures of 1000°C. The metal reacts with the
surface to form a layer that is highly scratch-resistant and has a high
The door panels of the Concept S-Class Coupé are made from aluminium.
Using computer algorithms delicate topographic lines were milled into the
metal and mimic the contours of the door-mounted control elements. This
creates an interesting light pattern with tiny sparkling highlights. For
this creation the designers drew their inspiration from rock formations in
Utah, USA. The progressive perforations of the loudspeakers were also
generated using algorithms and display some intelligent aesthetics of
Like the entire interior the seats have a highly dynamic and natural "flow
of lines" and continue the sculpted design of the shapes. The front seats
evoke associations of haute-couture tailoring because their sculpted shape
embodies sensual lines reminiscent of figurines in fashion design. In the
upper section of the seat the side bolsters envelope the occupant like a
collar. The vertical lines of the seats come courtesy of an array of
delicate piping. Piping on the side bolsters provides contrast and like the
perforation of the seat surfaces is a factor in the sporty-elegant
The choice of colours and materials plays with the extroverted contrasts of
anthracite and white as well as aluminium, and bolsters both the timeless
modernity and avant-garde nature of the design and the claim of the Concept
S-Class Coupé to ultimate exclusivity, high quality and perfection. In
this spirit the instrument panel and seats are made from supple calfskin.
The roofliner of the vehicle is made from hand-woven silk and consequently
underscores the exclusive character of the interior.
