TC Euro Cars has unveiled the first iteration of the Renault Megane IV in the country, and it’s a non-RS model – the Megane GT has been brought in to Malaysia for a preview, and will be on display at selected Renault showrooms over the next few weeks.

The show unit is equipped with an Energy TCe 205 engine – the 1.6 litre turbocharged four-pot offers 205 PS at 6,000 rpm and 280 Nm from 2,400 rpm, which is good enough to propel the GT from standstill to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds. It’s paired with an Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) transmission.

The GT, developed in collaboration with Renault Sport, comes with Pure Vision full LED headlamps and LED tail lights, and features a number of design items to differentiate it from its regular Megane siblings.

These include more aggressively designed front and rear bumpers, a rear diffuser with dual chrome exhaust exits, gunmetal 17-inch alloy wheels and darker exterior accents as well as GT and Renault Sport badging.

Inside, the cabin is dressed with GT black/blue upholstery and GT badging on the dashboard trim and front headrests, Renault Sport door sills, satin-finish chrome accents and a leather-trimmed steering wheel with aluminium paddle shifters.

Also on, a seven-inch colour TFT instrument display and a portrait-format seven-inch touchscreen for the R-Link 2 multimedia system, which features an eight-speaker Arkamys 3D sound system. Kit includes automatic dual-zone air-conditioning, a reverse camera and cruise control.

Specifications for the car include 4Control four-wheel steering, Multi Change Down – which enables rapid downshifting on the EDC transmission – and launch control.

Elsewhere, the Multi-Sense system with five driving modes sees its Eco mode replaced with an R.S. Drive mode, and the GT is equipped with a chassis package that has a dedicated set of calibrations for the dampers, springs, ESP and brakes.
