2020 Renault Megane facelift and plug-in hybrid unveiled

The updated 2020 Renault Megane range has been unveiled in Europe, bringing subtle styling changes and new technology, along with a new plug-in hybrid electric vehicle variant. Of most interest to Australia are the changes made to the Megane RS models, the only variants on sale Down Under. All of the revised Megane RS models are now powered by the same engine used in the outgoing RS Trophy.

Renault Australia axes Megane GT, GT-Line

Renault has decided to stop selling the warmed-up Megane GT and GT-Line in Australia, leaving the 205kW RS hot hatch as the sole member of its small-car range. While there’s no impediment to sourcing Megane GT and GT-Lines, the company says customer demand has declined to the point the cost of stocking them, promoting them, keeping parts for them, and transporting them, no longer stacks up. Once existing stock is depleted, no more will be ordered.

It will be one of only 32 Megane RS Record Editions built worldwide and comes with carbon-fibre wheels made in Australia (and used by Ferrari and the Ford GT supercar) and and carbon-ceramic brakes.

Renault Megane RS Trophy-R sets lap record at Spa

The Renault Megane RS Trophy-R has added another accolade to its portfolio, setting a new front-drive lap record at the iconic Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium. With a time of 2 minutes 48.338 seconds, the hardcore Megane was "more than five seconds better" than the previous record set by the Honda Civic Type R a year ago.

Renault Megane: Non-'Renault Sport' models axed in Australia

Renault has removed the non-Renault Sport Megane from its Australian range, as it looks to move the model upmarket and put the RS brand in the spotlight. Although some mainstream hatch, wagon and sedan stock remains in dealerships, the model has been removed from the Renault Australia website, leaving only the GT, GT-Line and RS hatch the brand considers 'Renault Sport Megane' models.
