The Renault Megane Sedan has been officially unveiled. It will replace the ageing Renault Fluence in the global market.
The Renault Megane Sedan, as the name suggest, is a boot equipped version of the Megane hatchback. This will be the third car to join the family, which has an ‘estate’ model in addition to the hatch.
The car gets some very modern design elements, which are also seen on the 2016 Megane hatchback. The boot is added on quite nicely and we don’t see any interference in the design. The sedan adheres to Renault’s new design language, and gets futuristic C-shaped headlamps-connecting which is a large grille with prominent Renault logo. A panaromic sunroof is provided and the roof is blacked out.
Arguably the best part of the car is its rear. The long, LED wraparound taillamps give a very unique presence and they extend all the way up to the Renault Logo in the center.
The Renault Megane sedan on the inside follows the Brand’s new Common Module Family Architectures and promises “top-level rear-seat spaciousness”. The cars gets a 7-inch TFT digital counter, 8.7-inch I-surface multimedia R-Link 2 infotainment system, 508 liter boot with Easy Trunck Access system, an HUD unit, Multi-Sense and much more.
Safety features on the Megane sedan include six airbags, ABS, EBD, and other electronic aids, all of which are currently seen on 2016 Megane hatchback.
The Megane sedan is powered by two petrol and three diesel engine options. The petrol variants produce 115 hp and 130 hp, while the diesel engines produce 90 hp, 110 hp and 130 hp.
Base petrol variants get choice of 5 speed manual or CVT transmission option, while top trims get a 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual cluth automatic option.
The Renault Megane will be produced at the carmaker’s Bursa, Turkey Plant. The car will be exported to more than 20 countries globally.
Launch in India: Though not officially confirmed, the car might reach India in 2017.
