2012 Renault Megane prices announced

Prices for the new Megane range start from £16,275 (Hatchback), £16,775 (Coupe) and £17,075 (Sport Tourer).

One of the most distinctive changes across the revamped Megane range is its front end, which has been updated with Renault’s new design language, which is featured on the new Renault Scenic range.

The new Renault Megane range has also been updated with Dynamique TomTom trim levels, which are now available on each body style. Other new trim level features include leather upholstery packages, Bluetooth and mobile phone compatibility plus Renault’s new Visio system.

The Renault Visio system provides extra driver safety when driving at night time; this includes a lane departure system and automatic high/low beam headlights.

Another significant leap with the new Megane range is its three new powertrains, which all offer stop & start technology and subsequently improved CO2 emissions. The new refreshed range offers a 1.2 TCe 115bhp petrol and two diesels, 1.5 dCi 110bhp and 1.6 dCi 130bhp.

The 1.2 TCe petrol option offers CO2 emissions as low as 119g/km and returns a combined cycle of up to 53.3 mpg.

The 1.5 dCi diesel offers emissions from just 90g/km and returns up to 80.7mpg, whereas the 1.6 dCi diesel emits just 104 g/km and returns up to 70.6mpg. The 1.5 dCi powertrain has the lowest emissions of any C-segment diesel on sale today.

The new Renault Megane range goes on sale in the UK on 1 April 2012. Renault vehicles are available from Perry Renault of Aylesbury.
