Renault gives Megane a 2012 facelift

Renault has thrown its hat into the ring as the battle for new year customers commences by highlighting the feature of its upgraded Megane.

The 2012 version of the popular motor is set to be launched in April and drivers will find a renewed focus on comfort and efficiency.

According to the French carmaker, the 2012 Megane is the most fuel-efficient car in its class.

The car is available with a choice of three new Stop & Start engines - the dCi 110, dCi 130 and the brand new TCe 115 - which the firm claims are the reason for the much-improved efficiency.

A statement from the firm said that the latter of these engines "is the most powerful 1.2-litre petrol engine in the world, yet it returns exceptionally low combined-cycle fuel consumption at 53.3 mpg and only 119g of CO2/km).

"It gives it theoretical range of about 620 miles to put it on a par with diesel models."

Renault has also upped the comfort and safety stakes by adding a number of driver support features including the Visio-System and Hill Start Assist, which were debuted on the 2012 Scenic.
