Wagon Appreciation Pt 5: TC Eurocars (Renault)

In this blog entry, I'll be posting Wagon Appreciation Part 5: TC Eurocars.  Why TC Eurocars? 
Because it's the DISTRIBUTOR of Renault cars in Malaysia.  I will be covering 2 wagons:

1) Renault Laguna Estate 2.0T Dynamique 170hp
2) Renault Megane Estate 2.0 CVT 140hp

1) Renault Laguna Estate 2.0T

Overview:

Engine And Transmission

The 2.0 litre dCi engine forms the main power offering for the Laguna range, developing 110kW at 4000rpm and maximum torque of 340Nm as low as 2000rpm.

Fuel consumption for the six-speed manual version of the Laguna hatch 2.0 dCi is 6.0 l/100km on the combined cycle, with 158g/km of CO2 emission.

The 'Pro-Active' six-speed automatic model will return 7.0 l/100km with 185g/km of CO2 emissions.

The 2.0 dCi engine also complies with the Euro V pollutant thresholds, two years before the regulations are due to come into force.

The 2.0 litre turbo-charged petrol engine produces 125kW at 5000rpm and 270Nm of torque at 3250rpm, and is available with the Pro-Active six-speed automatic transmission.

The petrol engine returns a combined cycle fuel economy of 8.9 l/100km, with 210g/km of CO2 emissions.

Interior Features

Inside, the Laguna offers Renault's 'Soft-Auto-Fast' programmed air-conditioning controls, allowing climate control settings to be customised to suit your preferences.

Standard features of the Expression Hatch and Estate include cruise control with speed limiter, automatic parking brake, leather steering wheel and gear knob, integrated rear side door sunblind, dual-zone climate control with carbon and odour filter, ‘carbon’ cloth upholstery, and a 4x30W single CD, AM/FM radio with MP3 CD reader with satellite audio controls.

The Dynamique Estate has a dark-carbon, part-leather/part-Alcantara® interior with a 4x50W dash mounted 6-CD changer, AM/FM radio with MP3 CD reader and a electrochrome rear-view mirror.

Safety

The 2009 Renault Laguna range features a twin-sensor, twin-chamber side-impact airbag, designed to protect the occupants' thorax and pelvis.

Standard across the range are ESP, ABS, and Electronic Brake Assist.

Optional bi-xenon directional headlights (standard on the Privilege Hatch) adjust according to the speed of the car and the steering angle, providing up to 90 percent more light through corners than regular halogen lamps.

The Dynamique Estate and Privilege Hatch also feature a tyre pressure warning system.

The Expression Hatch and Estate include ESP, ABS and Electronic Brake Distribution with ASR traction control, dual front and rear side airbags and curtain airbags.
