All-new Renault Fluence (Renault Megane sedan) leaked in owner’s manual
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Will be unveiled later this year.
Sketches and dimensions from a manual of the Renault Fluence successor has leaked online, courtesy of rnews.cz. It will make its world debut later this year, as confirmed at Renault’s 2016 shareholders’ meeting.
According to the manual, the sedan will measure 4,630 mm long, 2,058 mm wide (including ORVMs), 1,443 mm high and has a wheelbase of 2,711 mm. It is basically the sedan version of the fourth generation Renault Megane, which will replace the aging Renault Fluence. The Megane sedan will be based on the hatchback’s CMF platform and borrow its styling cues, as seen in the patent sketches.
The Fluence successor gets the signature V-Motion grille with the big Renault lozenge centrally placed, flanked by sleek headlights which could source the Pure Vision LED illumination and C-shaped LED DRLs from the Megane. The rear-end has new LED taillights that extend up to the centrally-placed Diamond logo and a single chrome-finished exhaust tip.
It is likely to source the engine lineup from the new Megane hatchback, which includes three TCe petrol motors with maximum power outputs of 100 hp, 130 hp and 205 hp, and three dCi diesel mills that deliver 90 hp, 110 hp and 130 hp.
