New Renault Mégane 2016 steals limelight at Frankfurt Motor Show

With a striking, new design, the fourth generation Renault Mégane – with its more efficient engine and lots of new technology - was Renault's star attraction at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. It will be available from launch as a GT created in association with Renaultsport.

This latest generation of the Mégane is 64mm longer than its predecessor and its wheelbase (the distance between the front and the rear wheels) is also longer by 28mm – which should mean more interior space. It is lower and wider, too, which usually improves grip and handling.

The car generally boasts a much sportier look and the C-shaped LED tail lights certainly seem to be influenced by the Renaultsport R.S 01. Stretching well across the bumper of the car, Renault claims they 'increase the perceived width of the car'.

The four-door hatchback gets its new technology from the 'next segment up', with its tablet-like central touchscreen. The high-tech features are normally only available in cars from higher segments. A number of its features are segment firsts, including a full colour head-up display, a seven-inch colour Thin Film Transistor (TFT) instrument display, a portrait-format 8.7-inch R-Link 2 touchscreen and 4Control four-wheel steering for the GT.

Chromed elements emphasise the top of the belt line and enhance the grille, the side badges and door handles. The sculptural creases on the bonnet, combined with the chrome beading and side air scoops, create a masculine look on the front of the car.

Lead designer Laurens Van Den Acker said he wanted the new Mégane to be 'aspirational', with the brand benchmarking its new family hatchback against high-quality rivals like the Volkswagen Golf and Peugeot 308.

Renault has tried to address the issue of quality which was one of the major criticisms of the existing car.

Isabelle Marchand, director of perceived quality at Renault said the Mégane project 'had been on-going for more than three years'.

Here at Sell Your Jamjar, we certainly look forward to seeing it.
