Based on the entry-level Dynamique specification level, only 115 Megane Hatch Sport Editions will be sold. The special edition sees the inclusion of LED daytime running lights, rear parking sensors, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear stick, tinted windows with rear privacy glass and 17-inch Schuss alloy wheels with a full-size spare wheel.
Limited edition trim details include a front grille insert, tinted headlights covers, body coloured side mouldings, electric and heated Metallic Grey door mirrors and Metallic Grey door handles. The Megane Hatch Sport Edition also introduces a new metallic Prussian Blue colour to the range.
Available with both six-speed manual and continuously variable transmission (CVT) options, both are tied to a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine producing 102kW of power (103kW CVT) and 195Nm of torque.
Fuel consumption ranges from 7.9 litres per 100km in CVT guise to 8.2L/100km with the manual.
Foglights, automatic headlights, automatic windscreen wipers, cruise control with speed limiter, and auxiliary and USB inputs plus Bluetooth audio streaming are all carried over from the Dynamique along with dual front, side and curtain airbags.
At $23,990 for the manual and $25,990 for the CVT, Renault says the Sport Edition represents over $1800 of added value over the $22,990 Dynamique for only a $1000 premium on the recommended retail price.
The Renault Megane Hatch Sport Edition comes with a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty and five years' roadside assistance.
