Renault chops Megane sedan pricing
Renault Australia trims $3500 from the entry price of its Megane sedan range
18 Apr 2007
RENAULT has taken an axe to the price of its Megane sedan range in response to slow sales.
Now priced from $24,990 (down from $28,490), the base-variant six-speed manual Megane Expression sedan is $3500 cheaper than before, allegedly making it Australia's best equipped European sedan under $25,000.
The four-speed auto Expression sedan is now also $3500 less expensive at $27,490 (previously $30,990), while the flagship auto-only Megane Privilege sedan is priced $1800 lower at $33,190 (was $35,990).
Renault says the price cuts will "substantially" increase sales of its booted Megane.
"The repositioning of the Megane sedan range will add a great car to many shopping lists," said Renault Australia managing director Rudi Koenig.
"The Megane sedan is an excellent blend of European style, engineering and safety and starting from $24,990 it is also outstanding value for money."Like its hatch siblings, the Megane sedan is powered by a 98kW 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and comes with electronic stability control, six airbags, ABS brakes, electronic brake-force distribution and emergency brake assist as standard.
Also standard across the Megane sedan range is climate-control air-conditioning, a single in-dash CD player with remote controls, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, cruise control with speed-limiter, power windows/mirrors, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, air-chilled glove box, 16-inch steel wheels with covers, side and rear sunshades, trip computer, outside temperature gauge, front foglights and a "see me home" headlight function.
The top-spec Privilege adds leather trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshifter, rear parking sensors, a six-stack in-dash CD player, floor mats, 17-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured side mouldings and bumper inserts, chrome door handles and metallic paint.
