34–44 TEST. Peugeot 407, Renault Laguna, Citroёn C5 — three French novelties on the Russian market. Advantages of the Peugeot 407 — comprehensible maneuverability, capacious luggage rack, comfortable front seats, much place for rear passengers; disadvantages — mediocre visibility, poor geometric passability. Renault Laguna attracts by powerful engine, good chassis tune-up, but modest luggage rack capacity and cramped rear seat reduce the score.
