The New MEGANE: ever more technology

The New Mégane offers a renewed and modernized cockpit. It features new 9.3-inch multimedia screens and 10.2-inch dashboard screens and benefits from all the features of the Renault EASY LINK multimedia system. This system, whose operation is inspired by smartphone use, is designed to be ergonomic and more functional, for ease of use.

To enhance safety and comfort for all, new driving aids are available. These include the Motorway and Traffic Assistant, an autonomous level 2 system that offers comfort and peace of mind behind the wheel.

The New Mégane gains in elegance and refinement, notably introducing new Pure Vision LED headlamps to improve visibility and comfort during journeys. The New Mégane thus reinforces its design and the dynamic lines that have made it such a success.

The New MEGANE E-TECH Plug-in: a rechargeable hybrid engine for a unique driving experience

As a pioneer and expert in electric mobility, Renault is giving the New Mégane the benefit of the 160hp E-TECH Plug-in rechargeable hybrid engine. It benefits from a new technology that focuses on energy recovery and is directly inspired by our Formula 1 expertise.

The E-TECH Plug-in technology was developed by Renault Engineering and is the subject of over 150 patents. It uses components designed within the Alliance, such as its new-generation 1.6-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine with two electric motors and an innovative multimode gearbox. This clutchless transmission has excellent efficiency and barely noticeable gear changes.

With its 9.8 kWh (400V) battery capacity, the New Mégane E-TECH Plug-in can be driven on 100% electric power at speeds of up to 135 kph. The efficiency of its energy management system enables it to achieve a range of 50 kilometers in mixed cycle (WLTP*) and up to 65 kilometers over an urban cycle (WLTP* City), without using the combustion engine.

The New Mégane E-TECH Plug-in thus proves its versatility. It can operate without consuming fuel on everyday journeys and is perfect for long journeys on weekends or for holidays. Whatever the battery charge status, the New Mégane E-TECH Plug-in benefits from the major advantages of the E-TECH hybrid system: the systematic use of the electric motor when starting up for improved responsiveness and reduced fuel consumption.

Available for launch on the New Mégane Estate, the E-TECH Plug-in engine will also be offered on the hatchback version at a later date.

The New MEGANE R.S. Line: a new design signature

The R.S. Line design label makes its appearance in the Megane family, replacing the old GT Line. With more advanced and richer content, the R.S. Line represents more than just a name change. Its exterior design and interior take on a sportier look, to meet the expectations of the growing number of customers who want a strong differentiation through dynamic design.

The New MEGANE R.S.: the benchmark for sportiness

The sporty versions of Mégane, under the R.S. badge, have established themselves as the benchmark sports hatchbacks, notably the R.S. TROPHY-R, which in 2019 held a new lap record on the famous Nürburgring circuit.

For its renewal, the New Mégane R.S. adopts a range centred on a single 300hp (220kW) 1.8 turbo engine with direct injection, as on the TROPHY version. This engine, the result of Alliance synergies, is also featured on the Alpine A110. Torque also increases to 420 Nm (+30 Nm) with an EDC gearbox and 400 Nm with a manual gearbox. This gain in power translates into better acceleration, even at high revs, while the torque – one of the best in the category – brings renewed driving pleasure and enjoyment.

The Sport 4CONTROL chassis offers maximum agility on tight corners and stability on fast bends. A new R.S. Monitor displays numerous vehicle parameters in real time.

The New MEGANE R.S. TROPHY: for even more sportiness

The benchmark for very high-performance, the New Mégane R.S. TROPHY is designed for the track. It stands out in particular for its exclusive Cup chassis, combined with the 1.8 turbocharged 300hp engine. The Cup chassis features a mechanical Torsen® limited-slip differential, which gives the car the benefit of cornering registration and traction on corner exits. It features shock absorbers and suspension springs whose stiffness has been increased by 25% and 30% respectively, as well as an anti-roll bar with a 10% higher setting compared to the Mégane R.S.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
