Renault have bolstered the Megane line up by adding a C segment saloon with a touch of luxury in the form of the Grand Coupe. But the UK won’t be getting it 🙁

It features an all glass roof which links the front and rear windscreens together in an arc of glass, naturally it has the new Renault front end with C shape running lights.

Inside you can expect a 7-inch colour TFT instrument panel, an 8.7-inch multimedia tablet, R-Link 2, Multi-Sense, Easy Park Assist and an extensive line-up of additional comfort equipment and driving aids such as Advanced Emergency Braking System and Lane Departure Warning.

The new model will be built in the Bursa plant in Turkey.

Such a shame they aren’t releasing it in the UK as it’s stunning, but i guess it’s a crowded marketplace and Renault don’t fancy their chances.
