Car of the Week: Renault Megane


Hey Guys

This weeks "Car of the Week": the Renault Megane. My model car is the Sport version.

The Renault Mégane is a small family car which is produced by Renault since 1995. It's available in the 3- or 5-door version as a hatchback, saloon, coupé, convertible and estate bodystyle.



From 1995 to 2002 Renault produced the Mégane, as a replacement of the Renault 19. Safety was a key focus of the Megane, with a pillar-mounted 3-point seatbelt for the middle-rear occupant, load limiters, driver's airbag and so on. It also achieved a best-in-class 4-star crash test rating in the 1998 round of testing by EURONCAP.

For a short time there was also a sport edition available, which was only available for a short time direct from Renault France.

In 1999 a Facelift debuted, with a modified grille and more advanced safety features.

From 2002 to 2009 the Mégane II was available and was voted European Car of the Year for 2003, fighting off stiff competition from Japan's Mazda 6 and PSA's Citroën C3, and achieved a 5-star safety rating in the EuroNCAP crash tests, the first small family car to do so.

The Renault Mégane RenaultSport (RS) was available as 3-door and 5-door hatchbacks, equipped with a turbocharged petrol 2.0 L 16v engine producing 225 PS (165 kW; 222 hp). Along with the engine, changes were made to the front and rear suspension geometry to improve handling, and the model features a deeper, wider front bumper. The Mégane Renault Sport competes in the hot hatch segment of the market.

The third generation of Mégane was launched in late 2008. The Coupé having a very aggressive and sporty design while the 5-door model is more conservative. In this generation, no automatic transmission is offered.

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
