The newest member of the Megane family, tuned by Renault Sport, boasts a sportier look and the TCE 205 engine mated to seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox, achieving a swift 0-100kph in just 7.1 seconds. The model is now available across the GCC, at a recommended starting price of around $29,400 in the GCC (prices may vary by market).

The Megane GT showcases an attractive sporty design, notably in the front grill and bumper, front C-shape DRL and full LED headlamps, and proudly wears the Renault Sport and GT logo on the front wings and at the rear. Rear LED tail lamp with distinctive 3D light effect and 18in GT Magny-cours alloy wheels ensure the new model stands out from a crowd.

Combining dynamic style and ride comfort, the model offers first-class road handling thanks to 4Control. The 4Control chassis controls rear-wheel steering, delivering unprecedented and unrivalled driving experience. The model also boasts a GT Nappa leather steering wheel and GT style alloy pedals.
