Spy-Shots of Cars

Earlier in the week, we saw the latest 2016 Renault Megane IV spyshots, and not long more to go before the car is revealed in full – the automaker has formally announced that the fourth-gen will be premiering in Frankfurt next month.

The Megane, which is underpinned by the Renault-Nissan CMF-CD platform, is set to feature the automaker’s new family face in line with that seen on the likes of the Clio and Captur – the most recent spy photos reveal a rather bold-looking front end, and the rest of the low-roofed, wide stance profile looks quite well fleshed out despite being clad by camo.

Plenty of changes in the interior – the photos of the cabin offer a good intimation of reports saying that the Megane’s cabin will feature much higher-end materials and a sharper composition.

As reported, higher-end versions will integrate controls into a large central touchscreen (said to be in the seven- to nine-inch region) in the same fashion as the Espace and Talisman. It’s been said too that a greater focus has been given to driver ergonomics.

No associated powertrain details as yet, but it’s anticipated that the car will make its market debut with a 1.2 litre TCe 130 petrol and two diesel units, possibly the 1.5 litre dCi 110 and 1.6 litre dCi 130.

The Megane IV, available in both five-door hatch and wagon bodystyles, is expected to move things upmarket for the brand, and it will come up against the likes of the Volkswagen Golf Mk7 and the Peugeot 308. Sales are slated to begin in 2016, including that of right-hand drive models.
