|The current Megane Grand Coupe|
Renault’s Megane Grand Coupe has been the best-selling body style in the New Megane range that was launched over two years ago, writes Trish Whelan.
While a number of brands have abandoned the segment, Renault believes that with its new Easy Life line-up, the Grand Coupe will continue to offer good value and high equipment levels for both new and repeat customers in 2019.
With the advent of WLTP, Renault has taken the opportunity to introduce the Easy Life line-up with three trim levels instead of four, and two engines including for the first time a petrol engine, the new 1.3 TCe 140 engine.
This new petrol engine, available in a 6-speed manual or new 7-speed EDC. Its 240Nm of torque comes in at 1,600 rpm.
Renault’s 1.5dCi engine is enhanced in 2019 with increased power and the new AdBlue system is low maintenance with a refill lasting for several thousand kilometres. The diesel engine is also available in 6-speed manual and 7-speed EDC gearboxes.
Both engines are available in the three Easy Life trims - Play, Icon and Signature.
The Play trim replaces both Expression and Dynamique Nav and is generously equipped compared to competitors, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on its 7-inch touch screen, with climate control and parking sensors.
The Iconic replaces the Dynamique S Nav and has built-in navigation (7-inch screen), the Multi-sense system and the Visio Active safety system.
The top of the range Signature adds leather upholstery, 18-inch diamond cut wheels, 8.7-inch navigation screen and full LED lights.
Renault’s 5-year manufacturer warranty is available across all versions of the new Megane Grand Coupe.
Prices are from €23,940-€28,440 for the TCe 140; from €26,140-€30,640 for the TCE 140 EDC; from €25,870-€30,370 for the Blue dCi 115; and from €28,070-€32,570 for the 115 EDC version.
