At the Geneva Motor Show in April of this year, it was possible to compare preliminary reviews about the wrestling model of the French Megan Renault 201 and this sparkling varnish and a glass machine presented for display.
Let’s say right away: the first responses were fair. From Megan Renault -3 of the previous issue, which we are already used to seeing on our streets, the new model is not much different in appearance. The same strictly streamlined design, and the impression that the car cannot be patient to break from a place at any moment. But experts immediately found differences. For example, they were caught in the eye of changes in optics.
The headlights became a little – a little shorter. Although only a few centimeters, but this made it possible to place the running lights directly under the “foggy”, and in the sports version – combine with them. Six LEDs in the form of the letter “G” on each side are designed to increase safety when the car moves or stands with repaid headlights. The form of air intakes, bumper, discs, there was more nickel in the front of the hood and the form of air intakes.
The remaining new items are found in the cabin. The Joystick of Management of the built -in radio. The Navigation System Settings Center is more conveniently located immediately behind the gear lever. A special remote control system of unmanned vehicle control is in the wrong place where it was in previous versions. Now he is on the right in the lower panel, at hand at the driver.
The new model is built into the front panel of the radio, which has the LSB entrance, supports the MP3 format, has an aux in the panel, and not separately, as before, and provides communication using the latest technology. Above the rear -view mirror is an electronic device “Renovisosystems”, which controls a sudden gathering from the occupied strip, the intersection of the axial line, notifying this on the display, sound, and vibration of the steering wheel. This “video monitoring” will not miss the moment to change the near light headlight and vice versa. The original skin pattern is used to tighten the cabin.
This is, so to speak, the external “objective data of the new model. And now we recall that it is under her hood. In Russia, Megan Renault 2012 is sold with two types of engines – 1.6 and 2.0 liter. The cost of a car in standard performance is 725,000 rubles. 2-liter “Megan-Dynamic coupe” with a 2-liter engine is more expensive-845,000 rubles. The “coolest” version of the “privilege”, with a 2-liter engine and a variator-885,000 rubles.
