The Renault Megane GT
You might think that Australia’s love for the SUV is an infatuation, and like a teenager obsessed with Bieber, the passion will eventually cool.
But just like believers are still waiting for half-man-wearing idols, their Calvin Klein, knocking on the door, kneeling down and proclaiming his love for them, we continue to roll out SUVs. according to the way Justin sucked in cash.
However, our collective dream of joy focuses on lifestyle, including that bold Top End adventure, we are sure that someday we will do it – conquer the sand Change of the Simpson desert in a high horseback family truck – just like Biebs strolling on the road ahead.
So the more realistic types choose a regular carriage, and Europeans are experts in producing really good ones, like Renault’s new Megane, controlled here in decoration. Top GT.
Should you leave your SUV and think about real-world comfort, a lower center of gravity and the practicality of a sports car? Play on JB’s best album and let explore.
Is there anything interesting about its design? October 8
Fully published. I love a good car, and Megane GT manages to combine the right level of aggressive sports with sleek sophistication.
An oversized version of Renault’s diamond logo, dominates the nose and powerful sweeping headlights (optional LED lights on our car) combined with a specially heated Dali-esque hook from the outer edge , balanced by running lights and lower vents.
The front and rear protectors bulge on the 18-inch ny Magny-Cours alloy rim, and the sloping turret causes the greenhouse to lean backwards. Chrome inserts around the guard badge in front and along the top of the door adds a subtle ray of light.
At the back, the Megane’s distinctive taillights, stretching near the touch point through the rear door, with overhead spoiler and mini diffuser underneath. Additional suggestions of chrome above the license plate and on the exhaust top keep things interesting, without going above.
The interior is smooth and modern, with a 8.7 inch vertical color touch screen, dominating the center console.
Touching the blue exterior is strategically applied to the wheels, dashboards, door trim and sport seats trimmed Alcantara, with a 7.0-inch LCD instrument cluster placed head-on by a technical super-speed team Numbers in a similar tachometer. Racy alloy accents adorn the gear lever, wheels and pedals.
The overall feel is cool and functional, with impressive standards and impressive finishes for a $ 40k wagon.
How realistic is the space inside? October 7
With a length of 4.6m, width of 1.8m and height of 1.4m, Megane car sits up straight in the window of the size occupied by its main rivals from Peugeot (308 Touring), Skoda (Octavia) and Volkswagen ( Golf).
Importantly, it only provided the Peugeot space for the wheelbase and the rich interior space.
Front-seat passengers are equipped with head and spacious footrests, along with lots of storage, including two cups, door boxes large enough to hold medium-sized bottles, glove boxes and trays around the control panel. center to hold coins, keys or phones. Power points and connections run to 12 volt sockets, two USB jacks and SD card inputs.
Sitting behind the driver’s seat, set for my 183cm height, there’s plenty of rear legroom, and very good space. Key points for adjustable air vents for rear passengers, as well as two central cup armrests fold down, the front seat pockets and door bins can hold bottles (small).
Younddd expects a wagon that will function well in the load space department, and even with the rear 60/40 upright rear seats, with a cargo capacity of 580 liters is provided. Fold the rear seat forward, and you look at 1505 liters. Although there is a lot of space, but it is less than the opponent, Peugeot 306 Touring cough 236 liters more, for example, (with folded seats). Clearly, compromising packaging is more rear legroom.
That said, there is a complex two-level floor system built in, allowing storage space to be hidden or increasing the load height. In addition, you will find four downward anchors, handy bins behind the rear wheel, neatly drawn separators near the back door to help control smaller objects and well-placed handles to fold the rear seats from far.
Just go find a spare wheel, a Bose subwoofer located in that niche, and your only option in the case of flat tires is the goo inflatable repair kit.
