Robustness and perceived quality common to both cars
New Renault Mégane and New Renault Mégane Coupé immediately exude a sense of robustness and perceived quality. This impression is heightened by the generous surface area and curvaceous forms of their body panels. Seen from the side, the feature line extends the crease of the slightly prominent front wings rearward to emphasize the car's broad, solid shoulders. The wide track (1.55 m) ensures that both the hatch and coupé versions sit squarely on the road and, in the case of New Mégane Coupé, the impression of stability is further amplified by its low ride-height and rear-end styling. The proportions of the two cars, the form of their beltline and their large door panels exude a feeling of protection, especially in the case of the coupé.
Coupled with the generous proportions of the bodywork, this blend of fluid lines also maximizes the visual effect produced by the light reflecting off the body, while the range of metallic paint finishes includes the all-new Ecume Blue for the hatchback and sparkling Cayenne Orange for the Coupé.
Particular attention has been paid to reducing the cut lines between the different body panels (e.g. windscreen pillars, fuel filler flap) and the front and rear bumpers which discreetly incorporate the parking proximity sensors. New Renault Mégane's roofline also benefits from specific treatment thanks to the use of laser brazing which eliminates the need for roof trimming.
The interior, meanwhile, features a driving environment that makes extensive use of fluid forms. The impression that the dashboard is suspended is reinforced by the taut horizontal lines that emphasize the curve of the decorative trim. All the controls have been carefully positioned and fall easily to hand close to the steering wheel or on the center console with a view to freeing up as much space as possible for an even roomier cabin.
Great care has also gone into the quality of the materials used. The fully integrated dashboard cowl benefits from a finish which is not only soft to the touch, but also resistant to daily use and to the ageing effects of sunlight.
The windscreen wipers are esthetically concealed beneath the bonnet line, a choice which also favors acoustic and aerodynamic performance.
The interior trim has been carefully thought through to produce a range of distinct ambiences depending on equipment level. Customers can accordingly choose between a light, elegant trim that exudes traveling comfort or a darker ambience with a sportier feel.
Last but not least, New Renault Mégane and New Renault Mégane Coupé come with a comprehensive range of accessories including body kits, comfort-enhancing equipment and stowage solutions.
