Renault Megane Coupe

New Renault Mégane Coupe places the emphases on safe driving enjoyment and performance for discerning enthusiasts looking for sensations to match this coupe’s striking looks but who also want a car they can use on a daily basis.

Despite being bigger and roomier, new Mégane and new Renault Mégane Coupe are an average 8kg lighter than their predecessors. New Renault Mégane and new Renault Mégane Coupe benefit from Renault’s expertise in the realm of safety, too. Features include double side-impact sensors and dual-chamber airbags as seen on Renault Laguna III and aimed at minimizing the consequences of a side-on collision.

It is also a socially responsible vehicle which is 95 per cent end-of-life recoverable by weight, while almost 12 per cent of the plastics it contains are sourced from recycling, equivalent to an average of 22kg per car.

Renault’s design and engineering teams focused their attention on three main areas of development, namely reinforcing the personality of each member of the Mégane line-up, ensuring a balanced offer in terms of performance and equipment, and targeting best-in-class positioning for all its core features.

New Renault Mégane and new Renault Mégane Coupe mark the beginning of Renault’s renewal of its C-segment line-up. With market share of more than a third, this segment has long been the biggest in Western Europe and makes a significant contribution to Renault’s performance in terms of both volume and profitability.

By 2010, the new Mégane family will include six different models, each of which will have its own unique and assertive personality. These six models have been conceived essentially for customers in European markets and will be manufactured in Palencia (Spain) and Douai (France). Other models equipped with specific technical solutions suited to local conditions will be available in non-European markets.
