Renault reveals the new Renault Megane Estate GT 220 is a new limited production version. The new Megane Estate GT 200 has been prepared by the French brand’s RenaultSport (RS) division and will go on sale in France this month, ahead of its launch in 11 other select markets, from Europe to Japan.

Exterior, the RS-prepped Estate gains a number of gloss black details, ranging from the door mirrors and diffuser, to the front air scoops and roof bars, plus black 18-inch wheels and special badging. For interior, there’s a specific steel gear lever knob, sport seats and steering wheel along with aluminum pedals, red accents and a numbered plaque on the center console.
Under the hood, Renault Megane Estate GT 220 is a de-tuned version of the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit that sits under the bonnet of Mégane R.S. producing 217-horsepower (220PS) instead of 262hp (265PS), and a peak torque of 340Nm. A six-speed manual gearbox drives the front wheels. Renault did not provide any acceleration figures, but it did say that the Estate GT 220 returns a combined fuel consumption of 7.3lt/100km (32.2mpg US or 38.7mpg UK) with corresponding CO2 emissions of 169g/km.
