The all-new, fourth generation Renault Mégane is now available in 26 Irish dealerships priced from €19,490.
The new five-door hatchback, which has received a 5 star Euro NCAP rating, is available in Expression, Dynamique Nav, Dynamique S Nav, GT Line Nav and GT Nav trims.
The all-new Mégane is available with fuel-efficient, low-emission powertrains. There are two Energy TCe turbocharged petrol options of 1.2 litres/130hp and 1.6 litres/205hp (GT). The turbodiesel alternatives are the 1.5-litre 110hp unit, with manual or EDC transmission, and a 1.6-litre dCi unit developing 130hp. The CO2 of the manual dCi 110 is just 96g/km, while at the other end of the scale the TCe 205 GT will be capable of 0-100km/h in 7.1 seconds and a top speed of more than 230km/h
The all-new Mégane is lower, with a longer wheelbase and the widest front and rear track in the class – to give it even more dynamic and balanced proportions. The taut, precise appearance of the car is emphasised by broad, sculpted shoulders and wheels of up to 18 inches.
The all-new Mégane’s distinctive front and rear lighting signatures are permanently lit when the engine is switched on. Unique-in-class features in include a configurable 7-inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) colour instrument display, R-LINK 2 connectivity systems via either a 7-inch landscape or 8.7-inch portrait tablet, Multi-Sense technology to personalise the driving experience and, on the GT version, 4Control four-wheel steering.
The all-new Mégane’s cabin has high-quality, soft-touch materials. There is an unmistakable cockpit feel to the car thanks to the design of the centre console. Upholstery on the sculpted, accommodating seats has been inspired by leather goods and stylish furnishings. Discreet top-stitching on the seats and door panels further underlines the all-new Mégane’s quality.
The sporty and dynamic appearance of the all-new
Mégane is even more evident on the GT-Line versions. Specific front and rear bumpers, elliptical chrome exhaust tailpipe and a profiled diffuser hint at the car’s sporty character and there are dark metal 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels.
In 2017 a Hybrid Assist diesel-electric powertrain will be added to the range, based on the Energy dCi 110 unit. Renault is targeting a class-leading CO2 figure of 76g/km, with fuel economy in the NEDC combined cycle below 2.9 l/100km. The GT range will be extended in 2017 with the addition of a new 1.6-litre dCi 165 unit, with a new 7-speed EDC transmission.
The all-new Mégane allows owners to personalise the driving experience via Multi-Sense. Accessed via the R-LINK 2 display, Multi-sense features customisable driving programmes, which adapt engine sounds, steering response, engine power and the LED ambient lighting. In the GT version the button is labelled R.S. Drive, and gives instant access to Sport mode.
The all-new Mégane is available from €155 per month with Renault Finance with 3% APR, 3 years servicing and 5 years warranty. This offer is available on cars ordered and registered before 31st August.
