Renault’s Megane sedan range has doubled in size after the introduction of three new diesel-powered models.

The new 1.9 Litre Turbo-Charged Common-Rail Diesel Engine produces a maximum power output of 96kW @ 4000rpm and maximum torque of 300 Nm at 2,000 rpm mated to either a six-speed manual or 4-speed automatic.

This new engine returns 5.8 litres/100km for the manual version which is a 30% improvement when compared to its petrol partner. However the automatic will manage just 6.8 litres/100km, due to a 40Nm loss of torque through the transmission.

Based upon these numbers the 60 litre fuel tank has a range of just over 1,000 (1,034) kilometres for the manual and almost 900 (882) kilometres for the automatic.
