Qual­ity plas­tics take on a new mean­ing with the Me­gane, which adopts plas­tic front guards and a tail­gate to help cut weight. Re­nault has fo­cused on im­proved qual­ity to help the Me­gane stand out in the con­gested small car pack and top-spec ver­sions will use an 8.7-inch touch­screen. En­gine choices will in­clude tur­bocharged 1.2-litre and 1.6-litre four-cylin­der petrols and a 1.5-litre tur­bocharged diesel. The 1.6 will be re­served for the GT model, which bridges the per­for­mance gap be­tween the reg­u­lar cars and the sporty RS spe­cials. Prices are ex­pected to start close to the ex­ist­ing model’s $21,000 mark when the new range ar­rives in Septem­ber or Oc­to­ber.
