The upcoming 2019 Renault Megane will go on sale once again, this time with minor changes only. This hatchback is present since 1995 and it rides on its fourth-generation. Moreover, a mid-size platform underpins this model, the same platform that supports Nissan Pulsar. This hatch looks really sharp and unique. Whatsoever, the interior is luxurious and very comfortable. Ride quality is superb and Megane comes with six available engines. Even the Megane RS is available, a performance-oriented variant that brings sportiness and aggressiveness.
The changes for the 2019 Renault Megane will be minor, however, the sophistication is present, along with the high-tech interior. Performance-wise everything will stay intact and there is no need for further changes at the moment.
2019 Renault Megane styling is sporty and modern
The look and appearance of the Megane model are getting better and better. Unfortunately, the 2019 Renault Megane will carry over with the exterior design. Furthermore, the styling is sporty and modern. The ride is low and the design looks modern and simple at the same time. The front end comes with the classic Renault’s design language that adds distinctive features such as C-shaped LED headlights.
On top of that, the grille looks astonishing, along with the creases on the hood and additional chrome trims. The side panels will also get more chrome work and the rear end also sports LED taillights. We can only expect additional exterior paints to become available and the Megane RS/GT could get a famous “Iron Blue” exterior color.
2019 Renault Megane interior
This hatchback offers one of the best interiors in the segment. Just like with the exterior, the cabin will also suffer minor refinement. That includes more soft-touch materials and some of the features are upgraded. Besides that, the rest of the cabin will stay intact. A large touchscreen sits on the center console and you can literally operate with everything via the touchscreen.
Chrome trims are visible as before and the sense of luxury is really present. Tech-wise, another full-color TFT display will sit on the instrument cluster and every trim level will get this unit. Upper trims are available with the Nappa leather upholstery, and even the steering wheel is leather-wrapped.
