Renault-Megane-Sedan-2017-1

Following the unveiling of the fourth-generation Renault Megane hatchback, what appears to be exterior dimensions of the Renault Megane sedan have just surfaced. Front and rear visual treatment for the sedan and estate as portrayed here appear to be very similar to the Megane IV hatchback’s, displaying a clear family resemblance.

As a C-segment sedan it is naturally the successor to the Renault Fluence which made its debut in 2009, and it has been spied testing ahead of its expected debut this year. It isn’t confirmed whether the new sedan will retain the Fluence name or adopt a new one. Given that the Fluence nameplate succeeded the Megane II sedan for the sedan’s third generation, this fourth generation successor could be given a new name.

Where the hatchback measures 4,359 mm long, 1,814 mm wide, 1,447 mm tall with a wheelbase of 2,669 mm, the sedan is 4,630 mm long and 1,443 mm tall, making it 271 mm longer and 4 mm lower than the hatchback. Meanwhile, the Megane estate’s measurements were also included, at 4,626 mm long and 1,449 mm tall, making it 267 mm longer and 6 mm taller than the hatchback.

The sedan can be expected to ride on the same CMF C/D (Common Module Family) platform as the Megane hatchback, which in turn is shared with the Espace and Talisman. Meanwhile, the Megane sedan and estate can also be expected to feature most, if not all of the powertrain options featured on the hatchback.
