The Mégane Coupé Concept unveiled at the Geneva Show in the spring of 2008 paved the way for the release of a new C-segment model line-up with real character. Today, following the recent introduction of new Mégane in September, it's the turn of new Mégane Coupe to take centre stage at the 2008 Paris Motor Show.
The design of the New Renault Mégane family line-up is the product of a desire to produce an immediately eye-catching car taking inspiration from the passion associated with the automobile, including cues from the world of sport.
New Renault Mégane's interior is extensively equipped with user friendly, comfortenhancing features. These include combined, easier to read colour-coded analogue/digital instruments. The list continues with a host of equipment normally associated with the next segment up, such as the automatic parking brake, hands-free entry and ignition, automatic locking as the driver walks away from the car, Carminat Bluetooth® DVD navigation and a new, custom-developed audio system (3D Sound by Arkamys®).
Extended dCi and TCe engine ranges. In the current context of curbing CO2 emissions and ongoing pressure on fuel prices, New Renault Mégane is available with two families of engines which combine frugal fuel consumption and driving pleasure.
The TCe 130 (1.4 turbo), which is scheduled to be introduced in the spring of 2009, packs the power of a 1.8-litre engine (130hp) and the torque of a 2.0 (190Nm), yet its CO2 emissions are less than those of a 1.6.
Four dCi engines with CO2 emissions of 120g/km for the 4.295m-long New Mégane: The dCi 85 and dCi 105 engines, which are acclaimed for the performance and driving pleasure they deliver, have been joined by the dCi 90 and the particulate filter-equipped dCi 110.
These four engines each emit less than 120g of CO2/km, while the new dCi 130 returns just 135g of CO2/km. The list will grow next year to include the dCi 160, and the dCi 150 mated to automatic transmission.
Although they are both bigger and roomier, New Mégane and New Mégane Coupe are an average 8kg lighter than their predecessors.
