Though much of its design has already been revealed with the new Renault Mégane hatch launched at the Paris Motor Show last year, the transition to a sedan shape still holds a few aesthetic secrets.
While hardly causing a sales storm here in Australia, the Mégane is a crucial competitor for the Peugeot 308, Fiat Bravo and VW Golf VI in the South and East European and South American markets.
The sedan is only the second in a growing range of diverse variants due to eventually form the Mégane line-up, all based on sister-company Nissan’s Qashqai platform.
The eventual line-up will of course include a 3- and 5-door hatchback and sedan models, but there is room for a coupe, convertible, station wagon and probably a crossover body-style to follow.
A potent performance model is also already in development based on the Mégane hatch which is sure to be a scorcher, with Renault having produced some of the most brilliant yet underrated hot hatches in the past.
