Renault Megane 2012: Restyled in German?.
Wedged between the recent C4 and 308 newly restyled, the Megane is reviewing its copy. Enhanced by minor cosmetic touch-ups, it can also count on new diesels and a petrol engine of small displacement (1.2 liters) that encourages consumption.
Launch in March
From € 19 500 (estimate)
The Rhine also obviously inspired marketing strategists Renault. After advertising for the Megane which apes that of an Opel model and praising the quality Germanic, here also restyled in German.
Sober, discreet and quality. Less expansive than the Peugeot 308 in all cases. Those who were awaiting the arrival of the new Renault identity as was the case on the Twingo will be restyled for their expenses.
The Mégane back in the saddle with cosmetic touches and the contribution of three engines unpublished. This restyling for all its shapes (coupe, sedan, wagon and convertible Estate CC) and its variations more assertive GT and GT-Line and RS.
At first glance, the projectors are now highlighted with daytime running lights with LED, migrate past the shield where they display a comma.
The "classic" models rely on a discreet entourage grille and air intake shield by thin slice of chrome and black lacquer elements.
A device intended to reflect a move upmarket. The smile is also stronger because now the fog lamps are integrated visually with the air intake.
In addition to these cosmetic changes, the Mégane range evolves in Chapter engines with the arrival of two blocks of Diesel Energy dCi 110 and 130 hp from a displacement of 1.6 liters. The first replaces the 1.5 dCi 110 and the second the 1.9 dCi 130 hp.
If the display remains the same powers as they stick perfectly to the needs of the market, however, fuel consumption drops like CO2 emissions.
Expect 3.8 l/100 km and 95 g of CO2 per km for version 110 hp and 4.0 l/100 km and 104 g CO2 per km for the 130 hp. Allowing both versions to get a measly € 100 bonus.
For the record, the values of the current model was respectively 4.1 l and 5.1 l and 106 g and 135 g.
On the gasoline supply range now starts with the "little" 1.2 TCe, a cubic rare for a compact. It appears, however, 115 hp and replaces the old 1.6 16v 110 bhp.
Renault shows a consumption of 5.3 l/100 km to 119 g CO2 per km (to be neutral to environmental tax) against 6.9 and 154 g for the 1.6 16v.
At the other end of the boiling range Renault Sport version glean additional 15 hp and increases its power to 265 hp is worth exactly the same as that delivered by the limited edition Trophy.
Like Scénic restyled too early in the year, the Mégane range will receive new safety equipment.
This is a warning system to track output, with automatic switching high beam / low beam and using a hill start and a rearview camera.
