Renault’s all-new 2016 Megane hatch will make its global debut at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the company has confirmed.

The new Megane will replace the current third-generation model, which has been on the global stage since 2008.

Prototypes spied testing in recent months suggest that we can expect Renault to continue the curvaceous new styling that kicked off with the latest Clio and the newly revealed Kadjar SUV.

The company’s now familiar wing-like grille will again feature up front, flowing back into a long A-pillar, tapered roofline and a more organic profile design.

“We will have a very sexy, very sensual, very attractive sporty looking vehicle with all the new technologies which will install itself nicely in the lineup,” design chief Laurens van den Acker told IndianAutosBlog this week at the unveiling of the new Renault Kwid compact SUV.

The camouflaged tester shown here, wearing a sports styling kit and large alloy wheels, is likely to be the high-spec GT-Line or a new Megane GT.

Full details on the 2016 Megane are still to come, although it is known that the 2016 model will be built on the new CMF platform developed together with partner Nissan.

The same architecture features beneath the new Nissan Qashqai and X-Trail SUVs, the Euro-market Pulsar hatch and Renault’s new Kadjar small SUV.

When the new Megane launches here it will again take on the the European benchmark, Volkswagen’s Golf, along with the top-selling Toyota Corolla and Mazda3.

The new model can’t come soon enough for Renault Australia, with the current model sitting on just 416 sales year-to-date.

The Golf is flying miles ahead with 7054 sales year-to-date - up from 5962 for the same period in 2014 - but the segment leaders remain the Corolla (14,910, up from 13,647) and the Mazda3 (13,424, down from 15,174).

Watch for the new Megane to make its big debut in September.
