2013 Frankfurt: Renault introduces Megane GT Facelift performance model

Article by Anita Panait, on September 13, 2013

Renault is introducing one of the latest members of its family of performance vehicles -- the sporty Megane GT.  The new Megane GT provides dynamic driving experience due to the installation of the 2.0T Renault Sport 220 engine under its hood.

This engine allows the new Mégane GT and GT-Line to provide more excitement during daily driving, in addition to their new styling that reflects their sporting heritage and "GT Renault Sport" signature.

The Mégane GT and GT-Line share the same bumper panel with the larger Renault logo, they feature model-specific lower grille, white headlamp guides and black headlight surround.

Depending on the country, the Megane GT could be availed with the 2.0T Renault Sport 220 gasoline engine that is derived from the 2.0 16V 265 that powers the Mégane R.S. The 2.0T Renault Sport 220 gasoline engine provides up to 220 hp of output and 340 Nm of torque with Stop and Start technology.

It consumes 7.3 liters of fuel per100 km with carbon dioxide emissions of just 169g per kilometer. The Mégane GT and GT-Line are available in hatchback, coupé and estate versions, with diesel options.

Renault elevated the complete Mégane range, so that it now highlights the all-new design motif. The Renault Mégane range has acquired an additional dash of vigour that further intensifies its attractiveness.

Outfitted with Renault's newest parts and innovative technologies, the brand's flagship is still fully focused on drive comfort and travelling pleasure.

The Renault Mégane sport vehicles have also been reconceived. The GT-Line and GT trim cars got a brand-new bumper, and the Mégane RS is first to have the RS Replay ability, so more motorsport excitement and fun can be shared with friends.

Shared styling touches, different methods of seduction

Renault Mégane range has taken the all-new brand identity that is shared by every new Renault car. The hatchback, coupé, and estate versions all have a new bumper, new grilles, and a new boot that comes with a larger Renault emblem against a black gloss background.

New daytime running lights wrap around the body’s sides to give it an extra shot of vigour to every Mégane model.

The complete range proclaims its identity with the same front end found on the hatchback, estate, and coupé, but each variation keeps its own distinct personality.

Mégane Hatch claims its grace and contemporary style, while Mégane Estate maintains every bit of its pragmatism, surrounded by a continuous, stylish exterior, and Mégane Coupé affirms its attractiveness by keeping its vibrant style outlines.
