This description is taken from the NTSC version of Gran Turismo 2:
The Renault Megane arrived in 1996 in a bewildering array of models. There's the simple five door hatchback, or the conservative four door Classic sedan. For the family there's the Scenic minivan, and for the poser there's a cabriolet. And for the driving fan, there's the coupe. For the coupe, there are two different two-liter engines. The basic eight-valver has 115 BHP, which gets the Megane to 60 mph in 9.5 seconds, with a top speed of 124 mph. The 16-valver shaves a second off the 0-60 mph time and adds 8 mph to the top end. Although it looks like a hatchback, the Megane Coupe is actually a two door, with a small trunk opening. This increases the body stiffness and benefits the car's handling - its strongest feature. Suspension is by independent MacPherson struts at the front end with trailing arms at the rear. Although it's front-wheel drive, thanks to a short wheelbase, wide track, and some clever suspension tuning, the Megane can be steered to some degree on the throttle. Lifting off the power mid-corner will see the nose tuck in and the rear end loosen itself into oversteer if desired. It may not be as adrenaline-fueled as the Spider or the Clio V6 but the Megane is still great fun.
This car can be bought at the Renault Dealership for 28,670 Credits.
