Renault to replace Latitude and Laguna in 2016 with all-new sedan

An all-new Renault sedan that will likely be the replacement for the Europe-only Laguna and Asian-made Latitude has been confirmed for launch in 2016. Renault design chief Laurens van den Acker confirmed the news at the 2014 Paris motor show, defending the notion that sedans are becoming less meaningful in the automotive space which is currently dominated by four-door 'coupes' and SUVs. “No, as a matter of fact next year we will come out with a large sedan,” he said.

After focusing on minor step-changes in its design since its last substantial shift - the polarising shield grille design started in 2004 - the Ingolstadt marque seems poised for the next big change in what some consider its handsome but somewhat safe design language.
