Renault's Megane sedan makes its debut in the Kingdom.

ARAB NEWS Renault's 2017 Megane sedan. The all-new Renault Megane, the latest from the French renowned automaker, was unveiled in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in a ceremony held in honor of company senior officials from Renault, Gulf Advantage Automobiles (GAA) and members of the press. Marwan Haidamous, managing director of Renault Middle East, said on the occasion: "The Megane family is expanding with the introduction of a four-door version - the new Renault Megane sedan. This model completes Renault's offering in the C-segment and strengthens the brand's position in markets where compact saloons remain the preferred choice among motorists looking for a comfortable and spacious vehicle that reflects their social status." "With its dynamic styling and its range of features from the next segment up, the new Renault Megane sedan represents a genuine upmarket shift, which enables the brand's latest model to position itself as the new benchmark in the compact saloon category," he said. The new Renault Megane sedan was conceived, designed and developed in tandem with the new Megane, launched at the beginning of 2016. It benefits from the same features, technology and engine variants as its five-door sibling, while adding record-breaking roominess for its class with generous space for its occupants. Renault is also proud of the car's large 550-liter boot and "coupe-like silhouette." Chrome detailing on the grille, side moldings, door window strips, door handles and exhaust tailpipes adorn high spec variants. Wheel sizes go up to 18 inches in diameter. Its panoramic sliding glass roof is a class first and improves aesthetics. The car's front and rear light signatures will not be mistaken for anything else out there. The dashboard is as per the Megane hatch, dominated by the same optional portrait-format 8.7 inch capacitive touchscreen (with pinch-to-zoom functionality) for the R-Link 2 infotainment system. The engine range starts from the SCe 115, a 1.6 liter naturally aspirated unit with 115 hp and 156 Nm, paired to either a five-speed manual or Nissan's Xtronic CVT automatic. The new four-door sedan 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 light signature. The glass roof linking the windscreen to the rear window lends an elegant and aesthetic two-tone look.
