The Renault Megane IV will be previewed in Malaysia soon, a few months after an example in GT guise was spotted back in July this year. For the official preview, TC Euro Cars will be showcasing the Megane GT, which was developed in conjunction with the Renault Sport division.

Highlights include more aggressive front and rear bumper designs, a rear diffuser with dual chrome exhaust exits, gunmetal 17-inch alloy wheels and darker exterior accents. The interior will likely feature sports seats, blue highlights and a unique steering wheel design as well.

Built on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s Common Module Family (CMF) vehicle architecture, the fourth-generation Megane is 64mm longer (4,359mm) and 25mm lower (1,447mm) than the third-generation Megane, and has a 28mm longer wheelbase (2,669mm).

The Megane GT also features 4Control four-wheel steering, Multi Change Down, which enables rapid downshifting on the Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) transmission, and launch control. The Multi-Sense system with five driving modes sees its Eco mode replaced with an R.S. Drive mode.

No details on what will power the Megane being previewed, but the GT variant is available in other markets with a choice of two petrol engines. The first is a 1.2 litre Energy TCe turbo four-cylinder from the Clio GT, but it’s been boosted to 130 PS and 205 Nm of torque. The other option is a 1.6 litre mill that outputs 205 PS and 280 Nm; both engines are paired with the EDC.
