PARIS, France – Renault will launch its Megane Sport Tourer GT at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show on March 1.

The car, Renault says, has Renault Sport’s DNA in its design and on the move thanks to its 4Control system – “a world-first in the C-segment station-wagon market”. It’s a five-seater with “vast carrying space”.

The wagon is based on the new Megane but with a modular interior and a choice of boot arrangements that includes the segment’s longest maximum load length.

FRONT-LIGHTING SIGNATURE

“The design of the new Megane Sport Tourer,” the automaker adds, “blends dynamism and style, enhanced by chromed trim around the side windows and C pillar. The roof line is enhanced by matte-finish anodised aluminium roof bars and the car’s low stance and wide track increase the feeling of solidity on the road.

“There’s also a distinctive C-shaped lighting signature at the front where the bumper underlines the model’s sporting credentials and the honeycomb mesh of the radiator grilles is specific to the car.”

The wide lower air inlet is flanked by two air-scoops and at the rear the Tourer GT has a chromed exhaust tail pipe and a sculpted diffuser.

MORE FROM THE SHOW…

But back to 4Control… Renault says it endows the car with precise and dynamic handling on twisty roads and “generates genuine driving pleasure”.

Carman’s Corner will bring you more details from the show next week. Or, if you’re lucky enough to be in Switzerland, make your way to Hall 4 and see the car in the metal.
