The car is a gorgeous shape and is full of useful extras (opening rear glass, cruise control, audio controls on the wheel etc etc)
It is beautifully smooth and rattle free making long drives a delight.
The cabin is comfortable, airy and spacious.
It is both economical and rapid, sitting at under 2000 rpm in 6th on the National limit and returning 55 mpg!
It has proven to be an excellent tow car handling a large 5-berth caravan with aplomb.
Note that I have owned a lot of cars including Volvo 850, subaru Legacy, VW Passat and Golf, Toyota and Vauxhall Vectra. The Laguna is no worse than any other in terms of owner experience. The car is very practical, comfortable and economical. Its also the best looking and most stylish estate car in its class bar none. Perhaps we have been unusually lucky, but I doubt it. The scenic my wife owned for 2 years was an equally impressive machine...
