New Renault Mégane#8217;s are the product of a desire to produce an eyecatching car. Its dynamic, styling takes its inspiration the passion associated with the including cues from the of sport. New Renault Mégane is too, with the accent much on the fit and finish of its panels, as as on that of the materials it employs.

The new has also benefited from the that has been achieved the Renault range on both the and durability fronts.

New Mégane#8217;s on-road performance up every bit to the high standard by its looks, with precision, and efficiency combining to deliver a enjoyable and reassuring ride. A extensively renewed range of dCi and TCe combining performance and respect for the is available, with four engines that can claim CO2 equal to, or less than,

New Renault Mégane has been to offer best-in-class safety too. Features include side impact sensors and airbags as seen on Laguna III and at minimizing the cosequences of a side-on

It is also a socially responsible which is 95 per cent end-of-life by weight, while almost 12 per of the plastics it contains are sourced recycling, equivalent to an average of per car.

New Renault Mégane the beginning of Renault#8217;s renewal of its line-up. With market of more than a third, segment has long been the in Western Europe and makes a contribution to Renault#8217;s performance in of both volume and profitability.

By the New Mégane family will six different models, each of will have its own distinct and personality. These six models been conceived essentially for in European markets and will be in Palencia (Spain) and Douai Other models will be in non-European markets equipped specific technical solutions to local conditions of use.

For two years, Renault#8217;s design and teams focused their on three main areas of namely reinforcing the personality of member of the Mégane line-up, a balanced offer in terms of and equipment, and targeting best-in-class for all of its key features.

New Renault Mégane, goes on sale from 2008, comes after the car of the Renault Commitment 2009 and consequently benefits fully the progress achieved in terms of on preceding models.

New Mégane#8217;s are the fruit of a bid to produce an immediately design which is not only and sporty, but which also robustness, quality and solidity, Renault#8217;s Medium Car Programmes Director Fabio Filippini. New paves the way for the renewal of Renault#8217;s in the compact vehicle segment. the Mégane Coupé Concept car unveiled in Geneva last New Renault Mégane#8217;s styling has honed to appeal to car enthusiasts.

to seduce

Renault#8217;s Design worked closely with the engineers from a very stage to incorporate styling suggestive of the world of sport New Mégane#8217;s genetic makeup. The is a family hatchback of 4.30m in with a dynamic stance, particularly to its short front and overhang, a 2.64m wheelbase, roofline and wide tracks.

Its personality is instantly apparent its racy front-end looks feature crown lines sweep across the bonnet the windscreen pillars to converge on the logo. Meanwhile, the streamlined of the headlamps serve to prolong the lines of the air-intakes to reinforce New Mégane#8217;s determined expression and gaze.

New Renault Mégane#8217;s personality is also apparent at the where the two-part light continue the feature line and access to the boot. The Latin of New Renault Mégane#8217;s elegantly curves is especially visible seen from the side. The of its flanks are both harmonious and and irresistibly suggest forward as well as an assertive character and the of genuine driving enjoyment.

and perceived quality

At first New Renault Mégane exudes a of robustness and perceived quality. impression is heightened by the generous area and curvaceous forms of the panels. Seen from the the feature line extends the of the slightly prominent front rearward to emphasize the car#8217;s solid shoulders.

The wide track dimensions ensure that the car sits on the road, and this sense of is underlined by the steeply-raked rear and, indeed, by the entire design. New Renault Mégane#8217;s the form of the beltline and the large panels exude a feeling of

This blend of fluid coupled with the generous of the bodywork also maximizes the effect produced by the light off the body, while the range of paint finishes includes the Ecume Blue.

Particular has been paid to reducing the cut between the different body (e.g. windscreen pillars, filler flap) and the front and bumpers discreetly incorporate the proximity sensors.
