It seems that Renault has decided to launch a Coupe Black Editions following the success of the Hatch and the Estate Black Editions. But the latest from the French automaker’s stable— Laguna Coupe Black Edition, comes with nothing except for a few simple cosmetic changes that slightly alter the looks of the car. Available with three metallic paints, including Pearlescent Black, Cassiopee Grey and Platine Grey, 17-inch Talisman aluminum alloys, twin chrome exhaust pipes, hands-free Renault Card automatic door lock/unlock and engine start-up system and also a few entertainment options in the form of 40W 3D sound system built by Arkamys, the car is pretty smart and includes Bluetooth, CD, MP3, and an audio connection box.
But no changes under the hood mean that you still need to live with the 2.0-liter dCi engine with 150 hp (and that seems to be a bit of a dampener). With 0-100 km/h in a leisurely time of 9.5 seconds, the €29,500 spent on the Coupe Black Edition is more for the looks than performance… Let’s see how well the latest special version from Renault fairs!
