The MEGANE GT and MEGANE GT Estate can now be specified with the new ENERGY dCi 165 engine mated to six-speed EDC automatic transmission.

The combination of the MEGANE GT’s Renault Sport breeding and 4CONTROL chassis with four-wheel steering ensures incomparable driving enjoyment for a car in this segment. The same technology has already contributed to the success of the TCe-powered versions of the MEGANE GT and MEGANE GT Estate.


Order books for the two new versions open in France on December 6, with cars due to arrive in showrooms in January 2017.

 

The ENERGY dCi 165 engine: high performance

The twin-turbo ENERGY dCi 165 engine has been specifically tuned by Renault Sport whose engineers were tasked with recalibrating the dCi 160 available for the ESPACE and TALISMAN. The result is an additional five horsepower, while peak torque now stands at 380Nm from 1,750rpm.

The performance of the ENERGY dCi 165 enables drivers to make the very most of the cars’ Renault Sport-developed suspension and 4CONTROL chassis with four-wheel steering for a safe, yet dynamic experience on twisty roads. One hundred times per second, the 4CONTROL system calculates and adjusts the turn-in angle of the rear wheels to ensure stability at speed and manoeuvrability in slower situations.


A versatile sporty car for everyday motoring

The MEGANE GT is a particularly versatile sporty car that lends itself perfectly to everyday motoring, while ride comfort has been enhanced thanks to specific work on the spring and damper settings by Renault Sport.
The driving pleasure delivered by the ENERGY dCi 165 engine combines with NEDC combined-cycle fuel consumption of just 4.6 litres and 4.7 litres per 100km for the MEGANE GT and MEGANE GT Estate respectively.


Renault Sport breeding

The versions of the MEGANE GT and MEGANE GT Estate powered by the ENERGY dCi 165 engine are the latest additions to the model’s line-up which has already benefited from input from Renault Sport:

- The existing GT versions powered by the ENERGY TCe 205 mated to seven-speed EDC transmissions offer crisp mid-range acceleration and maximum torque of 280Nm from 2,400rpm.

- Specific Design Packs available for ZEN and INTENS versions:

  • GT-Line Exterior Pack for ZEN versions: front and rear sport bumpers with Dark Metal air intakes and honeycomb grille pattern, extra-tinted rear glass, Dark Metal diffuser and chrome exhaust tail pipe, GT-Line badging and 17-inch Decaro alloy wheels.
  • GT-Line Exterior Pack for INTENS versions: front and rear sport bumpers with Dark Metal air intakes and honeycomb grille pattern, extra-tinted rear glass, Dark Metal diffuser and chrome exhaust tail pipe, GT-Line badging and diamond-cut 18-inch Grand Tour alloy wheels.
