The Renault Mégane is a small family car (C-segment in Europe) produced by the French automaker Renault since 1995. It is offered in 3- and 5-door hatchback, saloon, coupé, convertible and estate bodystyles. The Renault Scénic (launched in 1996) is the first modern compact MPV to be built in Europe, and is based on the Mégane floorpan.
Mégane I (1996–2003)Edit
The Mégane I was unveiled in the autumn of 1995, as a replacement for the Renault 19. The car was essentially a reskin of its predecessor, and carried over the 19's floorpan, engines, transmissions and chassis design, albeit with much modification. Taking its name from a Renault concept car shown in 1988, the Mégane further developed the new corporate styling theme introduced by Patrick Le Quément on the Laguna, most notably the "bird-beak" front grille – a styling cue borrowed from the Renault 16 of the 1960s. As with the 19 and the 11 before it, the Mégane was produced at Renault's Douai plant in northern France, and at the Spanish plant of Palencia.
