Of the fourth generation of the compact best-sellers we have spoken on numerous occasions, highlighting the sporty Renault Megane GT, which will crown the range with its 205 HP and a different look.
In regards to the engines and equipment of the new Mégane, there is late-breaking news. And these come from a leak from AutoEvolution, that shows us all the data of performance and consumption of the different engines that will be present in the model, in addition to the range of colors available for your exterior.
Starting with the diesel, will be present four different versions: dCi 90 and dCi 110, both with the 1.5 dCi, next to the dCi 130 and the powerful dCi 165. In these last two cases it is a block with a more modern 1.6-litre dCi, but the most powerful -160 CV – incorporates double turbocharging, and will only be available with finishing GT.

Their consumption will be very small in both cases, and while the 90 HP approvals 3.6 liters/100 km and 93 g/km of CO2, in the 110 HP with manual gearbox and specification ECO2 these values are reduced until the 3.3 litres/100 km and 86 g/km of CO2.
yes, the benefits of the Energy dCi more affordable to not stand out, as is evident: in the of 110 HP, the maximum speed reaches 188 km/h, with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 11.2 seconds.
