Frankfurt Motor Show LIVE: Renault Megane

The entire range of the compact Renault Megane has been redesigned, just in time to be publicly unveiled during the 2013 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show.

With the new Peugeot 308 out in the open, Renault timely decided it was due for a new update on their prized Megane line-up, with the facelift bringing across the range – hatchback, estate, coupe, GT Line versions and RenaultSport models – a new front fascia.
The redesign affects the hood, the bumper and features new elliptical headlights with gloss black surrounds.

“Our goal with the new design was to keep the special features of each vehicle, but have them share the same bumper panels. Fitted with the new hood and bumper, the Mégane range maintains a sense of styling harmony through its wings and rear components. The integration of the new identity on the front end also gives Mégane a new look that is fully
consistent with the brand’s other vehicles.” – Jean-Philippe Texier, design project manager for the M1 range.

There is also a new Megane Bose trim level, which features a gloss black bumper surround along with new upholstery and new 17-inch Akhiro wheel rims. Megane hatchback gets protective side moldings in chrome and lacquer black, while Megane estate is fitted with chrome finished roof bars and side window surrounds.

The Megane family is now available with the EDC dual-clutch automatic transmission on the TCe 130 engine (without Stop & Start), as the engineering department has re-tuned the engine by bringing in the turbo function faster and more frequently for enhanced performance. The re-tuning involved upgrading engine and transmission control software in order to better anticipate acceleration and pick-up, while the EDC automatic transmission gains new shift pattern management.

The new Renault R-Link infotainment system, along with its R-Link Store are now available across the Megane range, save for the coupe-cabriolet model.
