Renault Megane gains new petrol mill... only in France


Slotting in the between the GT and regular GT-Line, Renault has added a new engine option for the French spec Megane in the form of the TCe 165.

Displacing 1.6-litres and available on the standard five-door hatch and Sport Tourer estate, the new mill, as its name suggests, produces 165 pferdestärke or 121 kW and 250 Nm of torque, which Renault claims allows for a top speed of 215 km/h and 0-100 km/h in 8.2 seconds. A seven-speed EDC is the sole transmission available.

Offered in two trim levels on the hatch, the Intens is priced at €29 100 (R458 050) while the next step-up Akaju retails for €30 900 (R486 382). On the estate, only the former trim level can be had with pricing from €30 000 (R472 216). It remains to be seen whether Renault deem it fit to bring the engine to South Africa in due course.
