    Default Test drove a Laguna Coupe

    I've been out looking for a replacement for the old bird, One car I like the look of was the Laguna Coupe DCI 180 BHP. There was one near me so I took it out for a spin.

    A bit of an anti climax to be honest. The car looks great but the boot was alot smaller than I imagined it to be. No room for the golf clubs (or the camera )

    The engine was the 180 BHP DCI so I expected lots of power compared to the vectra, but it seamed a little tame. The loud pedal was more of a damp squip than a kick up the rear. I know its a sports spec but the ride was very harsh.

    On the motorway the car purred along. Up front the dash was functional and clear but lacked a little adventure......

    I drive a lot of cars from hire firms. So now I don't know what to look at next:

    VW: Boring
    Peugeot: Dated
    VX: New Astra may be interesting, Don't really like the insignia
    Skoda: See VW
    Ford: Last focus I had rattled like heck
    Honda: Liked a civic I had but the boot is too small
    Fiat: Bravo I had recently scared the willies off me
    Alfa: Maybe
    Saab: I don't have a flat cap
    Volvo: I don't have a flat cap
    BMW Too pricey
    Merc: Priced one up(C Class)...at £41k I stopped
    Toyota: Avensis maybe?
    Mitsubishi....I Like, Insurance probably doesn't

    Decisions Decisions!

    Best give toyota a miss if you're after a new car, as you've probably heard.
    Audi A5 is my next drive. Great cars.

    Last time I drove a toyota....The only think that kept me awake was the road noise...and that was a "sporty" Corolla!

    I'm in a hire car most weeks and have driven countless makes....French cars always have the best specs....Just the reliability that lets em down. We've had 8 or 9 Scenics for the missus....None have been a problem!

    Insignia doesn't really float my boat....VXR looked nice in the show room but I need the diesel!
