Renault Megane to be 'knighted'

Renault has unveiled a special edition of its popular Megane model.

The Knight will have dark chrome wheels, aggressively styled bumpers taken from the GT model, a chrome rear diffuser, dark chrome exterior styling, electrically folding mirrors and rear parking sensors.

Available for £350 more than the normal Expression+ model, the Knight comes with either a 1.6 16V petrol engine or a greener dCi 110 Stop & Start diesel engine which has CO2 emissions of just 90g/km and qualifies for zero road tax.

The Knight will be built in five-door hatchback, three-door coupe or sports tourer estate body styles.

The car, which will be on sale until the autumn, will be available in white, pearlescent white and metallic red, blue and black finishes.

The Megane Knight starts at £17,095, with the coupe costing £500 more and the Sport Tourer an extra £300.
