Sporty Megane will reach UK showrooms this June
29 March 2010

Renault has confirmed its Megane GT range will cost from £21,910 when it reaches UK showrooms this June.

The GT range is designed to bridge the gap between the standard and Renaultsport ranges; it has already appeared on the Twingo and Clio models. GT trim is available on hatchback, coupe, coupe-cabriolet and sport tourer variants of the Megane.

The GT comes with either Renault’s 180 petrol engine or 160 diesel engine, and reworked power steering to work with the larger tyres that come as standard. Brakes are upgraded, too, with larger discs and a Renaultsport master cylinder.

Also launched is the GT Line, which comes with the less powerful 110 diesel, with Renault’s new dual-clutch transmission, or the 130 petrol turbo. It gets the chassis settings from the Megane Coupé, which has stiffer springs and recalibrated dampers compared with the hatch.

The GT Line package is available for £1290.

And I bet in a year you'll be able to pick up a used one for £15,000. Or less, maybe! Still, very nice looking car.

Every time I see a new car price unveiled at the moment, I wince. This is well north of £20K for an upper mid spec, lower mid size Renault. A Renault, for heaven's sake. Is anyone actually paying these prices?
