Renault unveils French bound Megane Coupe Ultimate Edition image

The French automaker has introduced in its home market the Megane Coupe Ultimate Edition, a limited series priced from 25,700 euros.

The special series, which is sold exclusively in France, doesn’t mark the end of production for the version, but rather signals the end of the slow selling months of summer and the start of the year’s end delivery hoorah. Renault needs every new introduction, as sales reports coming from France show the maker dipped the most among mainstream constructors – after in recent months it enjoyed great sales.

The new French-only limited-edition Mégane Coupé Ultimate has been created on the Intens trim level, featuring new styling options: 18-inch alloy wheels, fixed glass sunroof, specific GT front and rear bumpers. The interior boasts limited changes from the standard models but is comfortably equipped nonetheless: there are heated front seats, leather upholstery and the Renault R-Link multimedia system. Special additions include ‘Ultimate’ badging, aluminum pedal caps, black lacquer trim or a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The engine choice is rather limited though: customers can opt between the Energy TCe 130 gasoline and diesel powered Energy dCi 130. The first version goes for 25,700 euros, while the latter is offered for 29,050 euros and the French state can contribute with a ‘eco’ subsidy to lower the pricing.
