Here are the first shots of the Renault Megane III confirming what we already suspected – the next generation will be based on the Renault Altica concept meaning the hideous hatchback rear styling seen on the current generation will be replaced by a more conventional style.

The new Megane will come in just about every form imaginable with the small family car to be offered in 3 & 5 door hatchback guise as well as sedan, coupe, convertible, station wagon and we may even see crossover body-styles.

Set to do battle with the Peugeot 308, Fiat Bravo and the unreleased VW Golf VI, we should see the model debut during 2008 with the Paris Motor Show being the most likely destination.
