It is something less than a year we were in the presentation of the fourth generation of the Renault Mégane. Compact French has been, since its first generation, all a best seller that has been able to fit very well in the market. In the first three generations has been marketed in versions of three-door and five-door, family sedan, although in the third body sedan was named Renault Fluence, and not triumphed precisely.
For this fourth generation, the French manufacturer of the Rhombus has decided not to develop a Renault Mégane 3-door, but a body type sedan, which we see in the pictures. However, if you like its aesthetics and features you will discover below, should know to not buy it, at least in Spain, since Renault has decided not to market it in a number of European countries.
Aesthetically, this Renault MéganeSedan because it is not a compact have stretched to the rear, but that we have worked on the design to remain attractive and not a simple “glob”. In this way, they have managed to solve the integration of the third volume in the bodywork of the compact and, to tell the truth, the result is quite attractive visually.
If you want to look for some negative point, we will say that the less positive side is less practicality regarding similar as the Skoda Octavia models, since account with boot cover and not with gate, making more complicated operation of loading and unloading and may not introduce very bulky objects.
At 4.63 meters in length, it succeeds in obtaining a volume of the boot of no less than 550 litres, a large number; more even if we consider that the five-door body offers 384 litres. Moreover, virtually everything inside is identical to his brother’s five-door, although the habitability of the interior is also better after winning 37 mm in the legroom in the rear seats.
It maintains the system of R-Link with a large 8.7 inch Infotainment placed upright in the center of the dashboard. Depending on the country, it will offer more or less driving assistance systemssuch as adaptive cruise control, automatic camera back-up or alert involuntary change of lane among others, emergency braking.
As for the mechanical, is offered with two engines of petrol and three diesel. In some markets will be available in 1.6 SCe of 115 HP associated with a manual gearbox or automatic CVT type, in addition to the here as well known 1.2 TCE 130 HP. Family offer diesel dCi with 90 engines, 110 and 130 HP, and can associate from 110 HP to an automatic gearbox EDC.
