The Latest in the Renault Megane Family – the All-New Megane Grand Coupe
After the reveal of All-New Mégane in 2015 and All-New Mégane Sport Tourer in March 2016, All New Mégane Grand Coupé is the latest model in the Mégane family.
The new four-door saloon is part of the renewal of the Renault range. Its dynamic and prestigious styling is reflected in sculpted surfaces, well-balanced proportions, a Renault-family front end, and a distinctive C-shaped front lighting signature. The glass roof linking the windscreen to the rear window lends an elegant and aesthetic two-tone look.
All New Mégane Grand Coupé boasts top-level rear-seat space. The new model’s three-box body also benefits from a spacious 508 litre boot with easier access thanks to the hands-free ‘Easy Boot Access’ system.
All New Mégane Grand Coupé benefits from the cost-cutting CMF C/D architecture (Common Module Family) and brings motorists the same driving pleasure and superior features as the rest of the Mégane family, including a 7-inch colour TFT instrument panel, an 8.7-inch multimedia tablet, R-Link 2, Multi-Sense, Easy Park Assist and an extensive line-up of additional comfort equipment and driving aids such as Advanced Emergency Braking System and Lane Departure Warning. All New Mégane Grand Coupé meets the expectations of customers looking for a stylish vehicle with refined features.
Depending on the country, the engine range comprises of two petrol engines:
- The SCe 115, available with a 5-speed manual gearbox or a continuously variable transmission (CVT)
- The TCe 130, available with a 7-speed dual-clutch EDC automatic gearbox or a 6-speed manual gearbox
Three diesel engines are available, also depending on the country:
- The dCi 90, available with a 6-speed manual gearbox
- The dCi 110, available with a 6-speed manual gearbox or the EDC 6-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox

All New Mégane Grand Coupé will be produced at the Bursa plant in Turkey and sold in more than 20 countries around the world, which mostly consists of countries in Europe and the Middle East. However, that list also includes Australia and Ireland, both right-hand drive markets. So will Malaysia get it eventually too?
