Renault presents the Megane GT line

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 26, 2010

The Renault Megane line-up gets a boost with the entry of the GT range. Developed by Renaultsport, this range is available for the Hatch, Coupe, Sport Tourer and Coupe-Cabriolet versions of the New Megane. From this range, customers can expect a sports chassis setting, new GT-design front and rear bumpers, 18-inch wheels, Renaultsport 250-specification seats with specific GT upholstery and additional lateral support.

This range also gets Renaultsport's 250-style steering wheel, aluminum pedal set and a dark charcoal interior trim with polished carbon highlights, rear parking sensors and bespoke badging on the grille and boot lid. The GT versions fill the slot between the Privilege trim and Renaultsport models. Two engines are available: a TCe 180 petrol engine and the powerful, high-torque dCi 160 diesel powerplant.

Those who prefer the GT look but with a smaller engine and price can opt for the GT-Line option pack fitted to the Dynamique trim level for only £1,290. The features include a sports chassis, 17- inch alloy wheels, GT front and rear bumpers, anthracite door mirrors and the Renaultsport 250-specification seats with specific GT upholstery and extra lateral support.

For these new versions, nine body colors are available. Malta Blue is exclusive for the GT and GT Line versions of the Megane range. Cayenne Orange, Glacier White and Mercury are exclusive for the Megane Hatch, Coupe and Sport Tourer. Pearlescent White and Royal Blue are intended solely for the Megane Coupe-Cabriolet.

However, all four body styles are available in Ruby Red, Pearlescent Black and Eclipse dark grey. Optional equipment includes metallic paint, Malta Blue or Cayenne Orange i.d. paint , extra-tinted rear windows, bi-xenon headlamps , dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, electric panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, Carminat TomTom satellite navigation and the Arkamys 3D sound radio with multifunctional TunePoint.
