With the next design language shining on the latest new models – the Espace, Kadjar SUV and now the compact Megane – Renault looks ready to bring its image upscale through modern and stylish cues and enhanced technologies.
The latest whispers concerning the compact hatchback that will most likely represent a big portion of Renault’s sales for the coming years involve the Megane secretly entering production at the Palencia factory in Spain. There it allegedly shares the production lines with the Captur subcompact crossover and there it will have all the bells and whistles fitted – namely the imaginative design and flurry of class-leading technologies and features. Now, as the Megane sedan from back in the day was replaced by the more upscale Fluence model since 2009, we have a fresh interpretation of the possible design for the next generation of the compact sedan.
Well known render specialist Theophilus Chin has turned to the project with a budget strategy and thus employed numerous design cues that were first seen on the Megane hatchback. We’re clearly rooting for the upcoming Fluence to also sport the Megane GT architecture, which hosts a 205 horsepower 1.6-liter turbo mated to the twin-clutch gearbox to make sure you don’t lose your head on the track but can still impress your neighbors when you park the ride coming from the office. Naturally, the fleet-oriented sedan will most likely land most of the units with the diesel 1.5 and 1.6 dCi or the efficient downsized gasoline mills such as the 1.2 TCe with 100 or 130 hp.
