Renault has revealed its Renault Mégane Collection 2012 range, which features styling tweaks and three new engines among the key changes.
The Mégane Collection 2012 gets three new ‘Energy’ engines – one petrol and two diesels – all with stop-start and deceleration/braking energy-recovery systems.
The Renault Energy TCe 115 is a 1.2-litre unit that will replace the 1.6-litre 16v in the Mégane range. Compared to the outgoing motor, power is up 5bhp to 115bhp, and peak torque is up 29lb ft to 140lb ft, with 90 per cent of the shove available from 1650rpm. Versions of Mégane Collection 2012 powered by this engine emit 119g/km of CO2 and offer 53mpg, according to the manufacturer’s figures.
The first of two diesels is the Energy dCi 110, a tweaked version of the Mégane range’s best-selling 1.5-litre engine that returns 74mpg and 95g/km. Peak torque is up to 191lb ft, which is available from 1750rpm. The second oil burner is the Energy dCi 130, a 1.6 litre that possesses 130bhp and 236lb ft at 1750rpm. It returns 71mpg and 104g/km.
The Mégane’s front-end gets some small styling tweaks, including gloss black and chrome detailing and daytime running lights, and the selection of wheels on offer across the range has been revised.
