THE twin-turbo ENERGY dCi 165 engine has been specifically tuned by Renault Sport whose engineers were tasked with recalibrating the dCi 160 available for the ESPACE and TALISMAN. The result is an additional five horsepower, while peak torque now stands at 380Nm from 1,750rpm.
The performance of the ENERGY dCi 165 enables drivers to make the very most of the cars’ Renault Sport-developed suspension and 4CONTROL chassis with four-wheel steering for a safe, yet dynamic experience on twisty roads. One hundred times per second, the 4CONTROL system calculates and adjusts the turn-in angle of the rear wheels to ensure stability at speed and maneuverability in slower situations.
The MEGANE GT is a particularly versatile sporty car that lends itself perfectly to everyday motoring, while ride comfort has been enhanced thanks to specific work on the spring and damper settings by Renault Sport.
The driving pleasure delivered by the ENERGY dCi 165 engine combines with NEDC combined-cycle fuel consumption of just 4.6 litres and 4.7 litres per 100km for the MEGANE GT and MEGANE GT Estate respectively.
The versions of the MEGANE GT and MEGANE GT Estate powered by the ENERGY dCi 165 engine are the latest additions to the model’s line-up which has already benefited from input from Renault Sport:
The existing GT versions powered by the ENERGY TCe 205 mated to seven-speed EDC transmissions offer crisp mid-range acceleration and maximum torque of 280Nm from 2,400rpm.
