New Renault Megane Sedan Revealed

French automaker Renault has revealed a sedan version of its Megane hatchback. The new sedan is indirectly replacing the Fluence, which has seen substandard sales numbers.

Unsurprisingly, the sedan version looks a lot like the hatch. From the front clip to the B-pillar of the car, it is nearly identical. From the B-pillar back, the hatch is replaced be a steeper-raked greenhouse and a trunk decklid. Even the rear fascia design is similar to the hatchback.

Like the exterior, the interior is just as identical to the hatch. It’s simple with a large LCD that features Renault’s latest R-Link infotainment system.

Built in Turkey, the Megane is based on the Renault-Nissan CMF-CD platform, which also underpins the Nissan Pulsar and others. It is powered by a 115 horsepower base four-cylinder gas engine, while a 130 horsepower turbocharged unit is optional. And naturally, this European sedan offers two diesel engines as well. All four engines are mated to a six-speed manual as the standard fare, while an optional dual-clutch automatic is offered.

The Megane sedan will be the last version of the Megane in its fourth-generation. The hatch and station wagon are already announced.
