Renault is finally joining the grand coupe game with a new variant of the Megane featuring unique styling and exclusive features. The all-new Renault Megane Grand Coupe extends the range of this C-segment contender which also includes coupe, hatchback, coupe cabriolet, sedan and estate variants, as well as RS, N24, Trophy and GT editions.
The addition of a sleek coupe-like four-door Megane to the range is good news, but the thing is at least in the pictures they have released Renault Megane Grand Coupe looks just like an ordinary sedan. We can’t see where the grandness comes in and what’s coupe-like about this design. But maybe it’s better in the flesh. Let’s not jump the gun here.
Built upon the car maker’s CMF C/D architecture, Renault Megane Grand Coupe promises a level of driving comfort and ride quality unrivaled in this class. The car’s also roomy and practical with a large boot and high-end equipment such as hands-free ‘Easy Boot Access’ system, a 7-inch colour TFT instrument panel, an 8.7-inch multimedia tablet, R-Link 2, Multi-Sense, Easy Park Assist as well as available driving aids such as Advanced Emergency Braking System and Lane Departure Warning.
Engine-wise, the 2017 Megane Grand Coupe will launch with a choice of two petrol units including the SCe 115 (5-speed manual or CVT) and TCe 130 (6-speed manual or 7-speed DCT), and three diesels including dCi 90 (6-speed manual), dCi 110 (6-speed manual or ECT 6x), and dCi 130 (6-speed manual). The car will be built in Turkey.
