Besides the news regarding the new C-segment SUV from Renault, we also found out something about the upcoming next-generation Megane a.k.a. Megane IV. During the same factory visit in Palencia, Spain, 4WheelsNews learned that the next-generation Renault Megane will arrive in the second half of 2015, which means we should see a concept car that previews the new model in October at the 2014 Paris Motor Show or possibly next year at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

Palencia site produces a Renault Megane every 57 seconds and 87% of the cars build there are exported to other markets. The new Megane IV will also be built at the same factory as the current generation, by the 1,779 persons working there as well as by the 952 robots. For those who don’t know, back in September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, Renault launched the 2014 Megane Facelift.

This model comes with a new design identity consisting of a front bumper, vent grilles as well as a new hood that features the enlarged Renault logo set against a gloss black background.

Furthermore, the Megane Facelift shows new headlights and new daytime running LEDs. Inside, the 2014 Renault Megane Facelift gets minor tweaks and the R-Link infotainment system. Under the hood, there is a new 1.2-liter TCe engine that delivers 130 hp, which can be mated to the EDC dual-clutch gearbox. The 2014 Renault Megane starts at €20,300.
