All New Renault Megane Lined Up For 2016

Further details and images revealed of the new family hatchback which debuted in Frankfurt last year

Renault have announced more details surrounding the latest version of their family hatchback, the Megane, which will be going on sale in summer 2016. While the engine line-up, spec and prices are to be disclosed closer to the time, new images have been released to tease potential buyers...

The new Megane will be lower and longer than the outgoing model, with the widest wheelbase in its class, to offer more dynamic and balanced proportions and driving characteristics. 

Interestingly the new Megane will be available with ‘4control’ in the GT spec. This is a unique-in-segment 4 wheel steering system which tightens the turning circle and improves road holding significantly.

There will be 10 engines to choose from when the Megane does come out, but the availability will vary from country to country and we’re not entirely sure which will be coming to the UK just yet, but the performance figures are as follows…
