The official set of images released by Renault that document the design process of the New Mégane, including design sketches, development of the clay model and the interior mock-up.
Renault design director Patrick Le Quement said the car would be launched before the end of the year along with a more conventional five-door version.
Renault Megane – Design SketchRenault’s Design Department worked closely with the project engineers from a very early stage to incorporate styling cues suggestive of the world of sport into New Mégane’s genetic makeup.
“New Mégane’s lines are the fruit of a bid to produce an immediately eye-catching design which is not only dynamic and sporty, but which also exudes robustness, quality and solidity,” says Renault’s Medium Car Programmes Design Director Fabio Filippini.
Its strong personality is instantly apparent through its racy front-end looks which feature crown lines that sweep across the bonnet from the windscreen pillars to converge on the centrallypositioned logo. Meanwhile, the streamlined forms of the headlamps serve to prolong the fluid lines of the air-intakes to reinforce New Renault Mégane’s determined expression and piercing gaze.
The Latin influence of New Renault Mégane’s elegantly sensual curves is especially visible when seen from the side. The proportions of its flanks are both harmonious and dynamic, and irresistibly suggest forward movement, as well as an assertive character and the promise of genuine driving enjoyment.
The new model won’t have the upright line at the rear – it will be more acceptable – but it will shake its arse for sure!
