With this generation they hope to get back on track and to increase sales figures. Renault put a lot of effort in creating a car that meets customers’ needs thus they modified exterior and significantly refreshed the cabin. 2016 Renault Megane has a plenty of things to offer and it definitely deserves the place at the top. However, Renault generally has problems with reliability hence we hope they managed to create more reliable car than before. New Megane has lots of pros and cons and we tried to present the most important ones in this review.
2016 Renault Megane Engine
Megane has never been known as a powerful car and whole focus was on the design. Renault has continued with the same policy and thus 2016 Renault Megane will feature the 1.2l four-cylinder turbocharged. This engine unit is capable of producing 205 pound-feet of torque and 130 horsepower. Although the engine is not the top-notch in terms of power, but it is among the best in the class when it comes to fuel consumption. In a city it is rated at 35 mpg while on highway it can reach astonishing 51 mpg! In the US you won’t find car with similar characteristics that is as efficient as the new Megane. The top speed is 200 km/h or 125 mph and it can reach 62 mph in 9.7 seconds. In conclusion, 2016 Renault Megane will not be the fastest and the most powerful car on the market, but it will definitely be one of the leaders in terms of fuel consumption.
Interior and Exterior of 2016 Renault Megane
Exterior of the 2016 Renault Megane will be far cry from its predecessor and all other members of the first three generations. As a matter of fact it will take a lot after Captur and Clio. New Megane will have unique headlights but grille will resemble the Clio’s grille. For the first time Renault will use Common Module Family platform aka CMF. Renault created this platform together with Nissan and new Megane is one of the first vehicles that will come with CMF. With this platform Megane will have more plastic parts, especially in doors, which will increase the overall safety of the car. When it comes to interior we must let you down due to lack of the official information. There are no even reliable speculations because this is the new generation and no one surely knows what devices and gadgets are going to be placed inside.
Price and Release date of 2016 Megane Renault
It is possible that brand-new 2016 Renault Megane will hit the market by the end of this year, but we need to wait and see if this is going to happen. In spite of the fact this is new generation of the Megane, price won’t differ too much from the previous model and it is most likely to be around $16,000 for the base model.
