(Dubai - UAE, 13 May 2018) Renault Middle East has announced the arrival of the all-new Megane GT. The newest member of the Megane family, tuned by Renault Sport, boasts a sportier look and the TCE 205 engine mated to 7 speed dual clutch automatic gearbox, achieving a swift 0-100km/h in just 7.1 seconds. The model is now available across the GCC, at a recommended starting price of around USD 29,400 in the GCC (prices may vary by market).
The Megane GT showcases an attractive sporty design, notably in the front grill and bumper, front C-shape DRL and full LED headlamps, and proudly wears the Renault Sport and GT logo on the front wings and at the rear. Rear LED tail lamp with distinctive 3D light effect and 18” GT MAGNY-COURS alloy wheels ensure the new model stands out from a crowd.
Combining dynamic style and ride comfort, the model offers first-class road handling thanks to 4CONTROL. The 4CONTROL chassis controls rear-wheel steering, delivering unprecedented and unrivalled driving experience. The model also boasts a GT Nappa leather steering wheel and GT style alloy pedals.
Commenting on the model’s arrival in the region, Marwan Haidamous, Managing Director, Renault Middle East, said: “The Renault Megane GT has always been synonymous with sporty style and energetic performance, which can be traced into the technology we’ve embedded in the recent model, such as the 4CONTROL system. With its sporty new look, unrivaled driving performance and advanced technology we are confident that the model will prove extremely popular among the region’s car buyers.”
Driver comfort and convenience are enhanced with features such as the multi-sense through four available options for engine performance, sound, steering and variable damping; Comfort Mode, Normal Mode, Sport Mode and Personal Mode. Each mode assures optimal convenience by allowing the driver to modifying the accelerator pedal and engine response, adjust the speed of the efficient dual clutch (EDC) gearshifts, and fine-tune the firmness of the steering and ambience of the cabin lighting.
The new model delivers a connected driving experience thanks to R-LINK 2, which serves as the car’s control centre. Showcased via a modern 8.7’ touchscreen, R-LINK 2 ensures an ‘Easy Life’ by offering a range of in-car features including easy park assist, rearview camera, Renault Smart Card with walk-away closing, as well as an electric parking brake, or even the Renault Sport mode switch button: RS Drive.
Engineers from Renault and Bose have collaborated closely to produce a tailor-engineered sound that has been specifically configured for the new Megane GT. Thanks to the optimal positioning of a central loudspeaker at the front, eight further high-performance loudspeakers located around the cabin and a subwoofer built into the boot, the model generates sound that is precise, clear and well-balanced.
The Megane GT is now available across the GCC, at a starting price of 29,400 USD (prices may vary by market).
