The full Megane model line-up will be announced later in the year, but Renault flew in four cars for us to sample in the GT-Line and the flagship GT specification.
Pricing has not been announced yet, although the range is expected to start from around $23,000.
The fourth-generation Megane features the company's new 'face', is longer, and sits on a longer wheelbase compared with the current model.
Renault says the new Megane will come with three engine choices – a 1.2-litre four-cylinder in the GT-line, a 1.6-litre turbocharged four cylinder in the GT and a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel. The high-performance RS is expected to arrive in 2017.
Inside, both models have a premium feel, with black and blue faux leather trim and a seven-inch touchscreen (optional 8.7-inch screen). The GT-line has a five-louvered grille, while the GT can be easily distinguished by a honeycomb grille, different wheels, twin rectangular exhaust tips, Alcantara seats and GT badges.
The GT houses the turbo engine and also adds bigger brakes and four wheel steering.
The front sports seats in both are well bolstered and the rear seats are sculpted and comfortable. The longer wheelbase means there is more rear space, although it doesn't feel quite as spacious as a Mazda3 or a Corolla.
