The Euro V emis­sion-com­pli­ant 2.0-litre tur­bocharged petrol or dCi turbo-diesel en­gines are shared with the hatch.

Ahead of the B-pil­lar, the clean, wellex­e­cuted styling is the same as the hatch. It has the same 2760mm wheel­base, but the wagon is 110mm longer to cre­ate a big­ger lug­gage area.

With the 60/40 split-fold rear seats up, there is 501 litres of lug­gage space, which in­creases to 1593 litres when the seats are folded.

De­pend­ing on the model, La­guna gets 16, 17 or op­tional 18-inch al­loys.

Prac­ti­cal fea­tures in­clude a fuel-tank flap which re­places the cap af­ter re­fu­elling.

The 2.0-litre dCi de­liv­ers 110kW at 4000 revs and 340Nm at 2000 revs and is avail­able with ei­ther a six-speed man­ual or six-speed au­to­matic, de­pend­ing on the model.

The 16-valve turbo 2.0-litre petrol en­gine de­liv­ers 125kW at 5000 revs and 270Nm at 3250 revs and is mated to the au­to­matic.
