New Renault Megane receives maximum 5-star Euro NCAP Rating​

The Renault Mengane has become the fourth Renault model for 2015 to receive the maximum five-star rating from independent body, Euro NCAP.

When it comes to safety, the new Megane is first-class, sharing the same Common Module Family (CMF) platform as the Kadjar Crossover. This new platform includes the use of high elastic steel for the spars, side rails and cross members.

The CMF platform integrates effective occupant restraint systems, including dual-generator front airbags, which when deployed, adapt to suit the impact and position of the occupant. This feature contributed to the new Megane scoring highly for both adult and child protection. The seat belts are equipped with pretensioners and adaptive load limiters which adjust the degree of restraint to the severity of the impact and the occupants’ build. In side impacts, occupants are doubly protected by side airbags and two curtain airbags.

As a result of the CMF platform, the new Megane boasts a number of driver assistance systems only normally seen in vehicles from the segment above. These aids are designed to reassure or warn drivers and offer an effortlessness drive.

For reassurance, the Megane is equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control which automatically adjusts the car’s speed to maintain a safe distance to the vehicle in front. An Active Emergency Braking System is also present which warns the driver to brake in order to avoid a head-on collision, but will also automatically apply the brakes if essential.

To further help in warning the driver the new Megane is fitted with a Lane Departure warning system and a Safe Distance Warning System which helps the driver to maintain a safe distance to the vehicle ahead. Overspeed Protection with Traffic Sign Recognition reads traffic signs in order to adjust the cruise control’s speed settings, while A Blind Spot Warning system offers the driver a visual warning when a vehicle is detected in one of the door mirror’s blind spots.

For complete ease of driving the model has automatic dipped to main beam headlights, Hands Free Parking and a reversing camera as well as colour head-up display which is in the driver’s line of sight and provides important information the driver may need.

The Renault Megane is currently available at Glyn Hopkin from only £345 per month with no customer deposit and 0% APR. To find out more about the Renault Megane and arrange your test drive, visit our Renault dealerships in Chelmsford and Colchester, or contact us using the buttons above.
