Inherited with the same ‘Sport’ chassis as Megane Coupe, the ride height of the New Renault Megane GT (Hatchback and Estate) has been lowered by 12mm. The specific GT bumper features a reshaped central air intake incorporating a glossy black center section. The fog lamps are housed in profiled, Dark Metal-colored recesses on either side of the bumper.
Renault Mégane GT is available with two most powerful turbocharged engines of the Mégane range: the petrol TCe 180 or the diesel dCi 160. The TCe 180 Euro5 (132kW) is a new evolution of the turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol engine with peak torque of 300Nm at 2,250rpm. The turbo responds to the slightest touch of the accelerator from as low as 1,200rpm. This engine drives through a six-speed manual gearbox.
The dCi 160 Euro5 (118kW) is derived from the Alliance’s 2.0-liter diesel turbo engine and is acclaimed as one of the most efficient of its class. With peak torque of 380Nm available from as low as 2,000rpm, this engine climbs smoothly and swiftly up the revs to 5,000rpm. This four-cylinder dCi 160 Euro5 engine, which guarantees an efficient and quiet ride, also drives through a six-speed manual gearbox.
Even more exclusive are the new Renault Mégane GT versions which come with ‘GT’ badge on the grille and ‘GT Renault Sport’ badge on the tailgate. Inside, ‘GT’ badge figures on the dashboard trim strip and front head rests, along with ‘Renault Sport’2 branding on the door sills.
