Renault Megane GT and GT Line arrive in UK

Renault megane gt.

The Megane GT and GT Line models, first revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March, will be available on hatchback, coupe, estate and coupe-cabriolet versions of the Megane.

GT models are currently available for Renault Twingo, Clio and Laguna cars and will be introduced for the Megane range in June.

The GT and GT Line models will include sportier looks than current Megane models. This includes a reshaped central air intake, redesigned fog lamps, black headlamp backgrounds, an aerodynamic diffuser on the rear bumper and Dark Metal trim on the windscreen frame and cabin surround.

Using the same chassis as the Megane Coupe and the same lower ride height, all GT and GT models add an analogue rev-counter, aluminium pedals, GT and GT Line badging and sportier front seats.

GT adds RS badging, 18″ alloys and leather-trimmed steering wheel to the GT Line trim level.

The Renault GT models will be offered with four petrol and six diesel engines and the GT Line boasts more exclusive TCe 180 petrol or dCi 160 diesel engines.

Renault has designed the GT and GT Line Megane to compete in the European hot hatch market, which grew by 300 per cent between 2001 and 2009 and boasts sales of over 30,000 units.
