Renault to extend Megane range throughout 2009

Date: 21 November 2008

Renault's new Megane range will fill out in all directions next year, with new engines and range variations dotted through 2009 to follow on from the five-door's launch this week.

The first automatic in the range, mated to a 140PS 2.0-litre petrol engine, arrives in January, with a 130PS 1.4 petrol coming in the spring. The diesel auto, a 150PS 2.0-litre, is due in mid-2009, at the same time as a 160PS 2.0 diesel option.

On the new model front, the Megane range sees the three-door coupe version arrive in January with a £400-£500 premium over the five-door. This is followed by Grand Scenic in May and its Scenic five-seat sibling in August, around the same time as the estate Megane Sport Tourer.

A hot hatch Renaultsport version is scheduled for late 2009, and the folding hardtop cabrio CC model will complete the line-up in spring 2010.

LPG and bio-ethanol models are also available. The UK won't be taking them from launch but Renault confirmed that it is monitoring the situation on both technologies and can quickly react to any serious demand. It is also not ruling out another diesel version of the Renaultsport Megane, and said the current one has a "very loyal following".
