Renault has bizarrely released its own spy-style pictures of the new Laguna.

Ahead of the car’s official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the pictures show the latest upper-medium segment being tested in extreme conditions – snow and mountains. Just perfect for the morning commute round the M25.

Improved soundproofing, a new and quieter air-conditioning system developed in conjunction with Nissan, electronics that actually work, and safety additions are all promised for the new Laguna.
