Renault is extending its C-segment line-up with the arrival of the all-new Megane Grand Coupe. The four-door sports sedan is the latest addition to the Megane range after the introduction of the new Megane in 2015 and new Megane Estate earlier this year.
Part of the renewal of the Renault range, the Megane Grand Coupe boasts dynamic and upmarket styling with sculpted surfaces, well-balanced proportions, a Renault-family front end, and a distinctive C-shaped front light signature. The glass roof linking the windscreen to the rear window lends an elegant and esthetic two-tone look.
Rivalling the Mazda 3 and Honda Civic, the stylish Megane Grand Coupe is said to feature top-level rear-seat spaciousness and a capacious boot, despite its sporty silhouette.
Built on the company’s new CMF (Common Module Family) architecture, the Grand Coupe promises the same driving pleasure and generous features as the rest of the Megane family, including a 7-inch color digital instrumentation panel, an 8.7-inch I-surface multimedia infotainment touchscreen, R-LINK 2 mobile connectivity, MULTI-SENSE driving modes, a color head-up display, Easy Park Assist and an extensive line-up of additional comfort equipment and driving aids.
Depending on the country, the engine range comprises two turbocharged petrol engines:
- the SCe 115 with 85kW, available with a 5-speed manual gearbox or a continuously variable transmission (CVT),
- and the TCe 130 with 97kW, available with a 7-speed dual-clutch EDC automatic gearbox or a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Three turbo diesel engines are available, also depending on the country:
- the dCi 90 with 67kW, available with a 6-speed manual gearbox,
- the dCi 110 with 82kW, available with a 6-speed manual gearbox or the EDC6 dual-clutch automatic gearbox,
- and the dCi 130 with 97kW, available with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
The 2017 Renault Megane Grand Coupe has been confirmed for the Australian market and will go on sale in early 2017. Full specification and pricing will be announced closer to local launch.
