Alex Misoyannis • The facelifted Renault Megane wagon has been spied testing, ahead of its reveal in the coming months.
The new Megane 'Sport Tourer' (as it's known in Europe) prototype spotted testing in the mountains wears moderate camouflage at the front and rear, indicating an exterior update is on the way.
Up front, the C-shaped LED light signature has been updated, sitting above revised air intakes similar to those of latest Clio.
There’s heavier camouflage around the rear lights, which appear to be all new, while the lower bumper has been slightly reshaped.
There are no images of the interior, though previous spy shots of the hatch with heavy camouflage inside the cabin indicate a significant shake-up is on the way. We'd suggest the larger Renault will be brought into line with the Clio and Zoe's cabins.
Revisions to the engine lineup are anticipated to be in the works. Past rumours have suggested the Megane will receive a plug-in hybrid variant, reportedly badged ‘E-Tech’, with an electric-only range of around 50km.
The updated Renault Megane wagon is expected to be revealed at the Frankfurt motor show in September, or at the Geneva motor show in March 2020.
Unfortunately, the long-roofed compact car won’t be making the trip Down Under, as Renault axed it, the sedan and all non-‘Renault Sport’ Megane variants in June.
