Like other Scandinavian car magazines, the Spanish journalists of KM77 continue to test market innovations in the famous speed test, which consists of performing an emergency maneuver at a certain speed. A test that continues to show surprising weaknesses on some modern cars, sometimes even on sports versions or luxury cars. Known for the failure of the first sound of Smart, Mercedes A-Class or even the case of Peugeot 607, this test has only tested the dynamic behavior of the new Renault Mégane E-Tech. So how does a diamond-brand powertrain perform, providing a great driving sensation on the road?
Renault Mégane E-Tech rates speed test
The balance sheet is correct, nothing more. In the KM77 tests, the Mégane E-Tech actually manages to pass the test without any problems at a speed of 74 km/h. Things become more difficult when the journalists perform the maneuver at a higher speed: when they tried the test at 79 kilometers per hour, the driver could not pass without hitting the cone, a character error which, according to them. it becomes easier to study for management or lower management which is difficult to anticipate. Our colleagues say that the Mégane E-Tech behaves well at a speed of 74 kilometers per hour and that these problems only occur when the speed is too high. For example, it does better than the 100% electric Recharge Volvo XC40, it cannot pass the test at more than 70 km / h. Polestar 2 sport-oriented sedan, on the other hand, could not exceed 74 km / h without failure.
No annoying body roll
Here, the limits of the Mégane E-Tech undoubtedly come from the small grip of the tires. Testers see in any case that it has good control of its roll and has a normal level of steering and support. In other performance tests and slalom, they also noticed a slight slip of the front axle in the phase where there is an accelerator and the steering wheel is turned. Usually with electric traction, but the driving aids work well.
