Remember the Renault Megane Sedan? Yes, it seems that Renault wants to re-emerge the medium sedan in the European market. With a target in 30 countries in the bloc, Africa and the Middle East, the French automaker sought in Turkey the regional model and slapped the look.
Presented as a New Renault Megane Sedan, the model has only an updated look, but is sold, for example, as Megane Grand Coupé in Portugal, although it is in fact a sedan.
The reason is that the body has very wide and inclined C columns, suggesting a coupe inspiration. The front gained a more aggressive look, drawing attention for the Pure Vision LED headlamps and the “C” daytime running lights.
The grille received chrome elements and the bumper added air deflectors and LED fog lights at the ends. At the rear, the bumper of the Megane Sedan 2021 gets a cleaner look, new 16, 17 and 18 inch rim wheels, in addition to Highland Gray paint.
Inside, the ambience is the same as the Megane hatch, although images of the interior have not been released, with a 10.25-inch digital cluster and the Easy Link multimedia with a 9.3-inch screen and mounted in a vertical position, with Google still Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The New Renault Megane Sedan also has two engine options, which will be offered in some European countries.
The first option is the 1.0 TCe three-cylinder, with turbo and direct injection, it delivers 115 horsepower, with the four-cylinder 1.3 TCe, but with 140 horses. Only this version has the option of the seven-speed EDC automated dual-clutch transmission.
Depending on the country, there is still the option of the 1.5 dCi 115-horsepower diesel with six-speed manual transmission or seven-speed EDC. The drive is front and there is no AWD option.
With this update, the New Renault Megane Sedan strengthens the segment of medium sedans in the region, which is not as expressive as in China. Would it be a good thing in Brazil, if there was demand?
