The fourth generation of the Renault Megane has been digitally envisioned with the help of other brand new cars in the French based automaker’s lineup.
Renault is said to start developing the new generation of the Megane sometimes in 2015 as the model is set to be unveiled towards the fall of 2016. The popular C-segment vehicle will be using a completely different platform and it will come with more tech and different engines. The car will use the CMF (Common Module Family) architecture and it will be co-developed with Nissan, as both automakers will slash their engineering costs by 30 to 40 percent.
As far as the engine lineup goes, the next Renault Megane generation will be using new units which will be more powerful and more fuel efficient than the current ones. Some reports are even indicating a hybrid version but this is still yet to be confirmed. The current generation has been in production since 2008 and it’s currently assembled in Turkey, France and Spain, being offered in a 5-door station wagon, a 2-door convertible, a 3-door hatchback and a 5-door hatchback. The model is riding on the Renault/Nissan C platform and it has a front engine and front-wheel drive layout.
