The dynamic-looking, high-quality, All-New Mégane – loaded with technology features from higher-segment cars.
Alongside a range of highly-efficient petrol and diesel engines, it will be available from launch as a GT created in association with Renaultsport. A ‘Hybrid Assist’ diesel will be added in 2017. The new Mégane goes on sale in mainland Europe early next year with UK deliveries anticipated in the summer.
The new Mégane is based on Renault’s Common Module Family (CMF) vehicle architecture, which makes it possible to offer high-tech features normally available only in cars from higher segments.
A number are segment firsts, including a full colour head-up display, a 7-inch colour Thin Film Transistor (TFT) instrument display, a portrait-format 8.7-inch R-Link 2 touchscreen and 4Control four-wheel steering for the GT.
Renault’s active and passive safety systems, such as adaptive cruise control, active emergency braking and lane departure warning have been applied throughout the range, while connectivity via the easy-to-use R-Link 2 system is fitted to all models above Expression+.
Standard safety features include ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution, ESC (Electronic Stability Control) with traction and understeer control, cruise control, speed limiter, Hill Start Assist, six airbags, seat belts with load limiters and pretensioners at the front, side impact protection bars and ISOFIX child-seat mounting points on the two outer rear seats.
Ensuring a comfortable and convenient journey for all occupants, all versions provide a two-way adjustable steering column, height adjustable driver and passenger seat, Bluetooth connectivity, accessory power point, a 12-volt front socket and ample storage throughout the cabin. These all feature on the Iconic trim level, which also includes an automatic electronic parking brake, LED daytime running lamps, tinted windows, 7-inch TFT instrument panel with digital speedometer, all-round electric windows, leather steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity, 4 x 20W DAB radio with fingertip controls and an AUX input.
Dynamique Nav adds to this with automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, Visio active safety system providing lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, automatic high/low beam headlamps; electrically adjustable, heated and folding door mirrors, hands free keycard, automatic dual zone climate control, Multisense system providing selective driving modes and ambient lighting, Arkamys 3D Sound 4x35W DAB Radio, and seven-inch touchscreen R-Link multimedia system including satellite navigation with live traffic updates and Western European mapping.
This is further enhanced on Iconic with 17-inch diamond-cut alloys, rear parking camera with front and rear parking sensors, extra tinted windows to the rear and tailgate, and the unique-in-class 8.7-inch portrait touchscreen R-Link multimedia system.
At the top of the range, there is GT Line featuring 18-inch diamond-cut alloys, full LED headlights, black leather upholstery with Nappa leather steering wheel and electrochrome rearview mirror.
The Multisense system is another technology from the segment above, offering four settings – Comfort, Sport, Neutral and Perso. The default setting – Neutral – provides the ideal balance between sportiness and comfort for everyday driving, comfort lends itself to a more economical driving style, while Perso allows the driver to personalise the set-up. Sport offers the most dynamic style, accessed directly via the R.S. Drive button. Sport mode reduces the steering inputs needed by 40 per cent and adjusts the accelerator, engine and transmission mapping accordingly.
The use of the Alliance CMF platform to manufacture the All-New Renault Mégane means a whole range of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to improve safety are available. They include Adaptive Cruise Control; Active Emergency Braking; Lane Departure, Blind Spot and Safe Distance warnings; Overspeed Prevention with Traffic Sign Recognition; Automatic High Low Beam; Hands Free Parking and 360 degree parking sensors.

New vehicle architecture
Built at the Palencia plant in Spain alongside Kadjar, the Mégane uses the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s versatile new Common Module Family (CMF) architecture, which is used, to date, on the Espace, Talisman and Kadjar. The platform allows a wide range of cars of different sizes to be created using a variety of modules consisting of out-of-view parts, and is based around five available modules: cockpit, engine bay, front underbody, rear underbody and electronic architecture.
At launch there is a choice of four engines on offer – two Energy TCe turbocharged petrol options with capacities and power outputs of 1.2-litres/130hp (manual and EDC) and 1.6-litres/205hp (GT only – EDC). The turbodiesel alternatives offer a 1.5-litre dCi 110 unit, with manual or EDC transmission, or a 1.6-litre dCi 130 engine.
An Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) six-speed automatic gearbox is available with the dCi 110 and TCe 130 engines. The EDC automatic gearbox is standard with the TCe 205 engine for GT Nav. The dCi 110 Automatic EDC provides emissions as low as 98 g/km of CO2, compared to 96 g/km of CO2 for the manual version. The TCe 130 Automatic EDC offers 122 g/km of CO2 – just 2 grams more than its manual counterpart, while the TCe 205 engine for the GT Nav’s emissions are 134 g/km of CO2.
The four engines and two transmissions offer fuel economy of up to 76.4mpg (NEDC Combined), with CO2 emissions as low as 96g/km. This is with thanks to the sleek shape and low weight of the car, weighing from 1,340kg (TCe 130 versions); the engine’s Stop&Start system, which is standard on all manual models; the availability of a double-clutch EDC transmission; an ECO driving mode which optimises the engine’s performance when cruising; the Renault Driving eco2 feature to help owners adopt a more economical driving style and standard brake energy recovery.
In 2017, two further engine options will be available. The Hybrid Assist is a 1.5-litre dCi unit with electric assistance. The GT Nav offering will be enhanced with the arrival of a dCi 165 1.6-litre twin-turbo unit.
All versions provide the peace of mind of Renault’s 4+ warranty and assistance package. The car is protected by Renault for four years or 100,000 miles (first two years have no mileage limit). In the event of a breakdown, Renault provides emergency roadside repairs or towing to the nearest dealer 24/7 every day of the year, plus three years’ European cover. There is also a three-year paint warranty and 12 years’ cover against corrosion.
