RENAULT MÉGANE CLASSIC

A Modern Classics
    
What is classic, can be easily modern and progressive as well. Mégane Classic, a new member of the Mégane family, is a good proof for such a sentence. Mégane Classic got its name after its classical body design. A notchback characterizes this bodywork type usually called "sedan". However, it is clear from the very first moment that such a "classics" has a lot of modern design elements and that the beauty of this car is very contemporary. Basic elements already used in other Mégane cars were intcorprated into Mégane Classic. That is why natural rounded lines are one of Classic' characteristic features and their elegance suggests the dynamic abilities of the car. The Mégane family has another member - a family sedan with elegant and spacious body, large luggage compartment, dynamic engines, ergonomic interior, outstanding driving characteristics and first of all, outstanding level of accident prevention and protection. Mégane Classic offers you the same feeling of comfort and safety as a large limousine.

Space with no end
      Large luggage compartment is a classic sedan's well-known advantage. Anyway, 510 dm3 of space offered by Mégane Classics is really outstanding.       Its luggage department can easily accommodate suitcases of a 5-member family going on holiday. This car also allows for the transporting of large loads thanks to the 1/3 - 2/3 split of the rear seats. Its transport abilities become even more transparent when you fold both the rear seats. Comfort is the most important advantage of this car. Folding armrests of the rear seats give a good example. You can be sure that the constructors did not put aside all the little things we need while travelling.
     Except for the map case in front of the front passenger and pockets at the back of the front seats Classic also offers a special storage space under the rear window. So you do not have to be afraid that your little things would roll all over the interior after the first step on the brake...

Perfect security
      An enormous number of components participate on the high level of accident prevention of this car; from outstanding riding characteristics and a perfect field of view to such a apparent details like easy-to-operate ergonomic pedals. Improved Mac Pherson axle with L-formed suspension arm in front and independent wheel suspension on tow suspension arms at the rear give the car a perfect riding characteristics on level ground but also a good stability while driving through the curve in a high speed. The braking system is well dimensioned, equipped by regulator of brake pressure to rear wheels in subordinance to load. Brakes can be supplied by ABS on demand.
      The car offers to the driver also a perfect field of view because of large glass area and slim body pillars. Perfect ergonomic control elements and instruments are placed within the driver´s reach and they are easy to operate with. The driver has a perfect knowledge about all of the important facts and he can concentrate on driving.

Safety brake light Mégane Classic

The crucial point

      If the car happens to be in such a situation that it is not possible to foil an accident, it is necessary to minimize its effect on the passengers. In such a moment Mégane Classic appears to be the perfect car. Its system of accident protection elements takes care of the passengers´ safety. Mégane Classic had to pass about 60 crash tests in the Renault test centre before the start of its production.
      The System of programmed fastening is another important novelty which raised the car safety level. This Renault´s invention takes an advantage of the results of enormous number of accident analysis made by Renault´s research department. This system represents an important novelty in safety belts operation. It blends in elements only rarely seen together. In case of an impact its pyrotechnic pre-tensioners stretch the belt immediately and draw the passenger to the seat while maximizing the safety belts effect. A special seat belt anchorage is another important part of the system. It programmably controls the tension of the belt and it does not allow to extend the belt pressure to the passenger´s chest and abdomen, which could oterwise raise its dangerous value. It is actually something like a very effective dumper of the safety belt. Renault made another step on the way to the maximum safety of its cars.
      The bodywork structure is another important safety element. The passenger´s cabine represents a stout core guarranting the passengers enough space to survive. This stout cell has on its front and rear crumple zones. In case of impact these zones programmably warp and absorb a large part of the impact energy.
