Renault has added the new GT 220 to the Megane line-up, with availability in all three body styles Hatch, Coupe and Sport Tourer. Prices start at £23,245 for Megane Hatch GT 220.

The GT 220 takes the spec of the GT Line TomTom adding the Renaultsport 2.0-litre turbo engine, Renaultsport-engineered chassis and 18-inch ‘Serdard’ alloy wheels with 225/40R18 Dunlop Sport Maxx TT tyres to the mix.

The 2.0-litre petrol engine delivers 220 hp @ 4,750 rpm / 340Nm @ 2,400 rpm to the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. This equates to a 0-62 mph time of 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 149 mph. On the official NEDC combined cycle fuel economy is recorded at 38.7 mpg with CO2 emissions of 169 g/km.

The Renaultsport tuned chassis is adhered with front and rear dampers that use the same calibration and valving based on those used on Megane Renaultsport, the steering set up and tyre set up is unique to the GT 220. To tame the power there are 320 mm ventilated front discs and 260 mm solid discs on the rear backed up with Anti-Skid Regulation (ASR) with Understeer Control (UCL), plus ABS anti-lock brakes with EBD emergency brake assist.

The interior features sports seats and upholstery, a leather-rimmed steering wheel with thumb indents, and aluminium pedals. The interior door handle pulls, outer air vent surrounds and the dashboard have a polished carbon finish. Where the exterior has a bespoke GT bumper design and there is an anthracite-coloured aerodynamic diffuser to complete the look.

Standard equipment for the GT 220 comprises dual-zone climate control, cruise control, speed limiter, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, LED daytime running lights, Renault R-Link satellite navigation, Bluetooth, a USB connection, a rear parking camera and -Arkamys 3D sound system.

Options include the Visio System comprising lane departure warning and automatic main/dipped beam headlights operation and the Leather Pack which adds carbon grey heated leather seats.
