The new Renault Mégane Coupé excites from the moment you set eyes on it. A sporty and sophisticated exterior design is just the start of the car's appeal as underneath the body is a comfortable and well-equipped cabin.
The vehicle's low profile gives it a poised appearance, while the aggressive front expression hints at its energetic performance. The Renault diamond badge sits at the very centre of the front fascia on a slim grille and either side are double-optic headlamps with LED daytime running lights. The standard-fit 16-inch alloy wheels grow to 18-inch rims on the GT Nav 220 model while the Limited Nav includes a panoramic sunroof to flood the cockpit with light.
A simple interior design leaves the cabin uncluttered and makes it easy to access and control the coupé's many functions. Synthetic leather and cloth upholstery is fitted within the entry-level Dynamique Nav to complement the soft-touch dashboard and doors. The interior is flexible as well as stylish as the rear bench is 60:40 split folding. Tumble one of the seats forward for space to carry long items or fold them all flat to hold as much as 991 litres of luggage.
Also enjoyed within the Mégane Coupé is a selection of Renault technology designed to enhance your driving experience. Keyless entry with push button start is the convenient way to begin every journey. A premium TomTom satellite navigation system is fitted as standard to join the audio system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity. An R-Link multimedia system is added to the car from the GT Line Nav trim grade to give you control of audio, navigation, telephone and online functions through a seven-inch touchscreen. It also includes voice commands so you don't need to lift a finger to access the next feature.
A diverse engine family has been developed for the Mégane Coupé to help it appeal to motorists with different driving styles. Those who want high performance can choose the Renaultsport petrol engine which produces a superb 275hp and 360Nm of torque. It takes just six seconds to sprint from standing to 62mph and you always feel in control when moving up through the gears. For the eco-conscious motorist there's a 110hp Energy dCi with Start/Stop system. It emits only 93g/km of CO2 and returns up to 78.5mpg combined which translates to lower running costs. Three other engines benefit from Start/Stop to make the coupé a rewarding purchase.
The vehicle is reassuringly safe too as it combines intelligent active safety technology with robust passive features. Electronic Stability Control (ESC), an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and cruise control are all tried and tested technologies that help to prevent accidents in the first place. They're fitted at no extra cost, as is Hill Start Assist, six airbags and anti-whiplash front head restraints.
