Developed by Renault Sport for the Mégane 4 GT – read our test -, the 4-cylinder turbo 1.6 TCe petrol is democratized taking place under the hood of the sedan and estate estate in a deflated version that offers 165 hp. In this 165 hp version, it retains the approval and dynamism of the GT version from the diamond-shaped mark and offers continuous acceleration up to 6,000 rpm.
This new Renault Mégane Energy TCe 165 is certified to 134 g of CO2 emissions, which will penalize as of 2018 an ecological malus of 540 euros. Mixed consumption is forecast at 6.0 L / 100 km.
After the diesel dCi 165, here is the petrol solution TCe 165. Renault now offers its compact with a new petrol engine: the four-cylinder 1.6L TCe of 165 hp (250 Nm of torque). It is coupled to the EDC double clutch gearbox. The performances are interesting with a 0 to 100 km / h carried out in 8.2 s and a 1000 m starting stopped done in 29.1 s. The top speed it, reaches 215 km / h. Mixed consumption is forecast at 6.0 L / 100 km.
The malus thus remains unchanged at 173 € this year and 540 € according to the 2018 scale. As for the EDC7 double clutch box, it remains taxed, which does not prevent the tariff from being considerably lower than that of the version GT: it starts at € 29,100 instead of € 32,400, and € 30,000 in Estate Estate. A real difference, but beware, the equipment is also less supplied and impossible to dispose of the formidable rear steering wheels.
