165 hp dCi diesel engine is now an option for the 2017 Renault Megane GT

Although specs for the new Renault Megane had already surfaced several weeks ago, we didn’t know that the company has cooked up something new. Aside from the 200hp gasoline, Renault‘s new Megane GT hatchback can now be had with a 165hp dCi twin turbo engine.

The new diesel will be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and will also come with an adjustable 4Control steering technology. Renault described the four-wheel control to adapt to the rear wheels’ turn-in angle for better driving and handling. In addition, the spring and damper settings have been calibrated even further to suit the vehicle’s GT characteristics.

Among its new features are the gunmetal rear diffuser, honeycomb grille, newly designed air intakes, improved suspension and four wheel steering. There is also a sportier GT exterior package that comes with perforated leather wrapped steering wheel and dark charcoal sport seats with built-in headrests.

2016 Renault Megane receives 5-star rating from Euro NCAP for its safety features

Safety is a top priority for Renault's new Mégane small family car. That is why it was given a five-star rating from Euro NCAP. After all, it is underpinned by Renault's Common Module Family (CMF) platform that also underpins the Kadjar crossover.

This CMF platform employs high elastic limit steel for the spars and side rails as well as cross members located between the engine compartment and the cabin. To illustrate the strength of this limit steel, just a square millimeter could bear a load of 120 kg.

Moreover, this platform allows the integration of operative occupant restraint systems like dual-generator front airbags. These airbags – which deploy according to the type of impact as well as according to the position of the vehicle occupant – have allowed the new Mégane to receive high scores in terms of both adult and child protection.

2016 Renault Megane GT arrives with design inspired by Renaultsport

The Renaultsport-inspired GT recently launched is the flagship of the latest Megane range. The many features of the Renaultsport include the distinct trimmings of the interior and exterior, 4Control segment-first four-wheel steering, bespoke chassis settings, and the 205hp TCe engine paired with the dual-clutch seven-speed EDC transmission.

Its front bumper is designed to increase the level of its sportiness which goes well with the DNA of the Renaultsport. Complementing the front bumper is the special design of the grilles, both the upper part and lower part.

The car is made more aerodynamic by the wider air intake that is flanked with air scoops. As expected from a true Renault, it has a Dark Metal finish for the door mirror housings. Renaultsport also offers as an option the diamond-effect 18-inch GT-badged wheels.

Renault is proud to announce the launch of its All-New Mégane. This model is stocked with many technological features typically found in high-end cars in addition to its high quality and dynamic look.

Because of the CMF modular architecture drawn from the Talisman and Espace, Renault is also able to offer features that were previously available only on more expensive cars. The comprehensive collection of technologies that make this car unique includes, among others, the Multi-Sense technology and 4Control, 8.7-inch portrait-style screen, head-up display, and TFT instrument display.

The color head-up display is retractable, a safety-enhancing feature since it lowers the time needed by the driver in looking away from the road in order to obtain necessary information like navigation instructions, driving aids, and speed.

First launched back in 1995, the Renault Megane has been on the market for almost 20 years and continues to be quite a rival for its German competitors and other players on the market. Last week, we had the chance to test the 2014 Renault Megane Facelift, which was launched back in September at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, and we must admit that we were quite impressed with the car. We had the chance to drive this model last week in Spain, where we also visited the Palencia site, the place where Renault builds the Megane.

For those of you who do not know yet, the latest facelift includes a larger and more prominent Renault badge, a redesigned bumper and a new bonnet, but also new daytime running lights and redesigned headlights. Although these are the only made at the exterior, this is a sophisticated makeover, which boosts the image of the Megane.

A reversing camera helped us park the cars and avoid any obstacles found behind the vehicles. But this is not all, as the Megane comes with a reversing radar too, able to show the drivers how close they are to an obstacle via a sound alert.

Renault has made a habit of launching limited edition models and offering them little by little to the market. Renault has been known to only provide a second batch when the few examples of a new limited edition sell out. This was the strategy that the automaker used on the Laguna Monaco GP Edition. Renault is following the same method for the Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Floride.

The limited edition of the open top Megane debuted at the 2011 Cannes Festival. The company waited for the Megane to be sold out. It then announced a second run.

Only 1,600 units of the Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Floride will be built for the second batch. Out of this figure, 250 are intended for the French market. It has a starting price of EUR33,100.
