The Renault Megane sedan, that will allegedly replace the Fluence in India, was recently spotted testing sans camouflage. Renault debuted the fourth generation of the Megane carline in 2015, when it unveiled the hatchback at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. This was then followed by the introduction of the estate body-type in March 2016 and finally the sedan in July 2016, which extends the automaker's C-segment line-up.
Renault Megane sedan is built on the CMF C/D architecture (Common Module Family) - a variation of the Renault-Nissan Alliance's CMF platform. Its "dynamic" style comprises sculpted surfaces, well-balanced proportions, a Renault-family front end, a distinctive C-shaped front light signature, and a glass roof linking the windscreen to the rear window.
Inside, the new Megane sedan "boasts top-level rear-seat spaciousness" and receives provisions such as a 7-inch color TFT digital counter, an 8.7-inch I-surface multimedia tablet, R-LINK 2, MULTI-SENSE, a colour head-up display, Easy Park Assist, Advanced Emergency Braking System, Lane Departure Warning, etc..
Renault will produce the Megane sedan at its plant in Bursa, Turkey and retail it in over 20 countries, namely, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Estonia, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Israel, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Morocco, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tunisia, Turkey and Ukraine. The new Renault sedan will face competition from names such as the new Hyundai Elantra, Honda Civic, and Skoda Octavia.
While the company is yet to make an announcement about the Megane's launch in India, media reports claim Renault will bring it in to replace the slow-selling Fluence sedan here.
