Here’s how the all-new, 2016 Renault Fluence (Megane Sedan) looks like in the flesh. The premium mid-size sedan was photographed in Turkey before its launch in the country later this year. Reportedly, the Megane Sedan will make it way to India in 2017, followed by the Kaptur crossover and new Koleos SUV. The new Megane Sedan will be produced at the Bursa plant in Turkey and sold in more than 20 countries around the world.
Based on the new CMF C/D architecture (Common Module Family), the new Megane Sedan drops the Fluence name, and adopts an all-new design. It gets Renault’s new face, pleasantly sculpted surfaces and well-balanced proportions. Equipment on offer include a fully digital instrument cluster with a 7-inch TFT display, a 8.7-inch touchscreen equipped infotainment system, a color head-up display, along with a host of additional comfort equipment and driving aids (Advanced Emergency Braking System, Lane Departure Warning, etc.) It’s fairly practical too, with a 508-litre boot space and a hands-free Easy Trunk Access system.
The Megane Sedan will be available with two petrol engines – the SCe 115, available with a 5-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and the TCe 130, available with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. Three diesel engines will also be on offer, and they include the dCi 90, only available with a 6-speed manual transmission, the dCi 110, available with a 6-speed manual or the EDC6 dual-clutch automatic transmission, and the dCi 130, only available with a 6-speed manual transmission.
