Renault Megane officially unveiled

Today we have the official announcement of the new Renault Megane. We can see that the car’s design follows the Laguna III’s styling and, though the car is larger than the current generation Megane, it’s 8 kgs lighter. Under the hood, Renault will offer the new Megane with a range of petrol and diesel engines. Diesel powerplants range from 85 to 150 hp, while the petrol engine offer will include the 1.6 16V engine (available with 100 and 110 hp power output), the 140 hp 2.0 liter and the 180 hp TCe.

Renault MeganeDepending on the market, Renault will offer five or six-speed manual and automatic transmissions. Also, Renault tried to make the Megane more environmental friendly, by adding biofuel-compatible engines (bioethanol and biodiesel) and by making 12 percent of the plastics (about 22kg) sourced from recycling.

The interior comes equipped with a lot of new features, such as combined analogue/digital instruments incorporating a new, easier to read colour-coded cruise control/speed limiter interface, hands-free entry and ignition, automatic locking as the driver walks away from the car, a Carminat Bluetooth® DVD navigation system and a custom-developed audio system (3D Sound by Arkamys).

The new Renault Megane will go on sale in November 2008 and Renault says that by 2010, the Mégane family will include six different models, each one with a distinct personality.
