New Renault Laguna GT has appeared in Geneva for the first time in the eyes of the world. Gt uses the same engine as Renault Sport performance cars.

Renault’s entry into the Sports Tourer market has been reaffirmed in Geneva with the Laguna GT. Offered with something called Active Drive chassis with four-wheel steering, the GT is said to manoeuvre better with dynamic response and enjoyment for the driver.

GT comes with two exclusive engines, the first yielding 180 bhp/131kW and 400Nm of torque, which is exceptional for a 2.0-litre turbo diesel. Torque is available from a lowly 2000rpm, all the way to 5000rpm. The 2.0 dCi engine has a 0 – 100km/h time of 8.5 seconds, with a fuel consumption average of 6.5 litres per 100km.

Petrol powered GT uses the same 2.0-litre engine found in Renault Sport cars and it produces a sterling 205 bhp/150kW in this case. It takes 7.8 seconds to run from 0 – 100km/h using an average of 8.2 litres of fuel per 100km.
