Theophilus Chin is back with a new render for the next generation Renault Megane scheduled to come out in 2016.

The Megane is starting to show its age so naturally Renault is cooking up a successor which has already been spied as a test mule. The French are saying we should expect to see a sportier design with a "new corporate face" featuring a slender grille and a big Renault logo, just like in the attached render which adopts a front fascia inspired by the interesting Eolab concept.

Details are scarce right now but most likely the overhauled Megane will ride on the CMF platform co-developed with Nissan and should lose some weight compared to the outgoing model. On the inside of upper-spec models there's going to be a new infotainment system which will eliminate a significant proportion of the buttons & knobs to enable a less-cluttered layout.

Since it's programmed to go on sale in 2016, Renault will probably decide to show us the new Megane in September 2015 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
