2016 Renault Megane GT introduced

As for the future Renault Megane RS we will have to wait at least two years, the French manufacturer unveiled a intermediate version of the new generation Megane. It is called Renault Megane GT, it is developed with the help of RenaultSport division and features distinctive interior and exterior design details.

The lower air intake is wider and flanked by air scoops, while a Dark Metal finish is available for the door mirror housings. The optional 18-inch diamond-effect, GT-badged wheels were specially developed by Renaultsport. At the rear, two chrome-plated exhaust tailpipes echo the style of the twin air scoops at the front to provide a sense of symmetry.  The tailpipes flank a diffuser that takes its inspiration from Formula One. The new Megane GT carries Renaultsport badging on the left-hand rear, as well as on both front wings.

The wrap-around seats with integral headrests, blue top stitching and a chequered sports logo are also RenaultSport.

Three different upholstery choices are available: fabric, Alcantara leather with blue stripes and Alcantara leather with black stripes. There is a bespoke steering wheel, sports pedals in aluminium, a special gear lever and steering-wheel mounted gearshift paddles. 

The information delivered by the instrument pack and display screen is enhanced, too, most notably with the addition of a Race mode. Hints of blue within the cabin pick up on the new Iron Blue exterior colour.

The new Megane GT is the first vehicle in its segment to feature four-wheel-steer 4Control technology, specially calibrated by engineers from Renaultsport. Rounding up the GT’s chassis package are recalibrated dampers, springs, ESC and brakes with no loss of comfort and versatility.

The GT employs new technologies specially developed by Renaultsport, including Multi Change Down, which enables rapid downshifting, and Launch Control.
