The new Renault Megane III will be launched at the Paris Motor Show later this year. We have some spy shots.
The Altica concept car is inspiring the newcomer and again the new Megane will be offered in 3- and 5-door hatchback guise as well as sedan, coupe, convertible, station wagon and probably crossover body-styles.
The car will engage in a formidable fight with the Peugeot 308, Fiat Bravo and VW Golf VI.
The new model is much more than just a mature evolution of the current Megane and will lack the most controversial features of the current car.
However, the 3-door coupe version promises to be a quite sporty with revolutionary styling.
The new Megane will share its underpinnings with the Nissan Qashqai.
Renault will launch the third-generation Megane in South Africa in the first quarter of 2009.
