All-New Renault Megane Confirmed For Frankfurt Auto Show

The fourth-generation Renault Megane will have its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, Renault’s design boss Laurens Van Den Acker confirmed.

“The new Megane will be launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It’s a segment which is a hugely competitive because you’re competing against the VW Golf, Peugeot 308 and others,” the executive was quoted as saying by Indian Autos Blog at the Renault Kwid’s world premiere in India.

The all-new Megane will be based on the new CMF architecture (CMF-CD), the same platform used by the new Nissan Pulsar. In doing so, Renault will keep manufacturing costs competitive, but will also make the new Megane lighter.

As for the styling, the new Megane is expected to look significantly different than the current model, borrowing design cues from the new Clio and Captur. “We will have a very sexy, very sensual, very attractive sporty looking vehicle with all the new technologies which will install itself nicely in the lineup,” Van Den Acker said.

In the cabin, Renault is reportedly reducing the number of buttons, with their functions assigned to a large 9-inch touchscreen display. The quality of materials is expected to improve as well.

      Agreed… several shots of the new Laguna in disguise is floating around, but has anyone seen this Megane dressed for test out in the fields yet?

    I’m pretty pumped to see this. If the base model has steel wheels, let’s hope they’re the same rad steelies as the current gen.
