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.

Renault Australia: 'every model new or updated by the end of 2020'

French carmaker Renault is about to jump start its Australian operations yet again – but this time the company will be boosted by the newest model range in the industry. In the space of just 12 months Renault’s line-up will be comprised of completely new or updated models. Some will be here before the end of this year. The all-new Renault Kadjar compact SUV and updated Renault Koleos mid-sized SUV are due in showrooms next month.

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.
