(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Muscat- The new version of Renault Megane, the effervescent and elegant saloon that offers the best-level low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for the segment, is now available with a 2l engine configuration along with a 1.6l one.
Renault's designers have drawn upon their acclaimed expertise to seamlessly incorporate 508dm3 VDA of boot storage capacity without compromising the vehicle's aesthetic appeal.
Its generous dimensions (4.63m long and 1.81m wide, with a record wheelbase in its class of 2.71m) underscore its status-enhancing credentials and provide additional room for occupants.
Its sleek profile is the result of painstaking work on the proportion of glass to metal (one-third/two-thirds) as well as its low height (1.44m) and ground clearance (13cm).
A spokesperson for Renault Oman, from the house of Suhail Bahwan Automobiles (SBA), said, 'Courtesy of its dynamic styling and its range of features from the next segment up, the new Megane represents a genuine upmarket shift, which enables the brand's latest model to position itself as the new benchmark in the compact saloon category.'
Fitted as standard either across the range or in the higher-end versions, chrome detailing (grille, side mouldings, door window strips, door handles and exhaust tailpipes) point to the model's quality and reinforce its status-enhancing appeal. Its 1.57m front and rear track, the widest in its class, and its range of wheel sizes up to 18 inches imbue it with a striking stance. Its broad, sculpted shoulders express its sportier style.
A unique feature in the compact saloon category, the top version of the new Megane is equipped with a panoramic sliding glass roof that fills the cabin with natural light front and rear. From the outside, the panoramic roof forms a link between the windscreen and the rear window to add a further touch of elegance and refinement to the design of the new Megane.
The new Megane is available in a choice of nine exterior colours. Its eight metallic options include Pearl White, Mercury, Mink Brown, Cosmos Blue, Cornet Grey, Flame Red, Starry Black and Dune Beige. It's one non-metallic finish: Glacier White.
Latest addition to the new Renault range
The new Megane shares many styling features with its larger sibling Renault Talisman, including its lighting signature which is visible night and day: The front C-shaped lighting signature features LED 3D-effect light guides. Available as option on the top version of the new Megane are full LED (LED Pure Vision technology) head lights. The rear LED lights form a unique horizontal 3D-effect signature featuring Edge Light technology. The slender brush stroke-like lines emit a deep red light.
Interior: New Megane indulges its occupants
The carefully appointed 'cockpit'-feel cabin exudes an unmistakable 'cockpit' feel, thanks to sculpted, enveloping seats and features such as a configurable colour seven-inch TFT data display or a portrait-format 8.7-inch multimedia tablet, R-LINK 2. Furthermore, the positioning of all the vehicle's technological features has been thought through to facilitate their everyday use.
Travelling comfort is further enhanced by the careful attention that has been paid to the interior finish, to the quality of the soft-to-the-touch materials, which are within easy reach of the driver and passengers: Materials found in Renault's higher-end models, Plush foam-backed covering selected for the dashboard, upper door panels, door inserts and armrests, Satin-effect chrome instrument, air vent and centre console surrounds, Full-grain Nappa leather-trimmed steering wheel, available on the top trim level.
The consistency of the materials used for the dashboard and the top of the door panels accentuates the interior's perceived width. The centre console is wide, tall and surrounded by a smart trim. On the top version, the design of the console as well as the front and rear door panels are enhanced by two fine strips of light picked out in the same colour as that of the ambient lighting.
Depending upon the version, the new Megane's cabin is trimmed in beige (with a choice of three different types of upholstery: fabric, velours or leather). All the above contribute to the sensation of superior comfort on-board the new Megane.
Class-leading seat comfort and roominess
The precision-designed seats promise and provide class-leading comfort and support, thanks notably to the use of dual-density foam. The frames are the same as those employed for Koleos and Talisman. Leather seats available as option on the top version offer massage function for the driver plus electrically adjustable lumbar aupport.
