This is the first time all three Magane body shapes will be sold concurrently in Australia, with the previous-generation sedan making its first appearance here back in 2010 but being discontinued before the arrival of the wagon.
The all-new Megane wagon and sedan broadly echo the specification levels of the hatch, whose price remains unchanged despite a slight upgrade.
Zen standard features include R-LINK 2 multimedia system with satellite navigation and a 7-inch touchscreen, reversing camera, rear parking sensors, Hill Start Assist, electronic park brake, Arkamys audio with eight speakers, automatic dusk-sensing headlights and rain-sensing windscreen wipers.
The Intens, GT-Line and GT variants gain an 8.7-inch portrait screen and an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) pack which includes blind spot warning, adaptive cruise control (ACC), distance warning and side parking sensors – the ADAS pack is a $700 option in the Zen and entry-level Life hatch variants.
The three upper-spec variants also come with bigger alloy wheels, park assist, bigger alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, electric panoramic sunroof, dark charcoal cloth upholstery, Multi-Sense driving modes, LED daytime running lights and LED headlights.
In addition the GT gains launch control and multi downshift, all-wheel steering combined with Renault Sport-tuned suspension, premium sports interior trim, black honeycomb grille, Renault Sport GT front bumper and 18-inch Magny Cours alloy wheels.
The Megane hatch has been upgraded to receive the ADAS packs which are optional in the Life and Zen variants and included with GT-Line and GT.
The GT-Line and GT hatch variants are also now equipped with the 8.7 inch portrait touchscreen, Multi-Sense driving modes and ambient lighting throughout the cabin.
All Megane variants are powered by the torquey 97kW/205Nm 1.2-litre four-cylinder turbo except the range topping GT wagon and hatch, which share the 151kW/280Nm 1.6-litre turbo four.
Both engines are mated to a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission in all variants except for the entry-level Life hatch.
