After last week’s leaked photos these are the first official pictures of the new Renault Megane. Along with striking looks, Renault is also offering a raft of clean diesel engines and promising the Megane will feature improved fit and finish, along with better reliability and durability.

The new five-door Megane is the first of six new models that will be on sale by 2010 – the line-up includes a three-door variant, an estate, a CC and the Scenic, with production split between France and Spain. The new Megane goes on sale this November and UK prices will start around £12,500, following an official unveiling at next month's Paris motor show.

What parts of the new Renault Megane haven’t I seen yet?

The interior for a start, which Renault says features a floating dashboard. There’s also a combination of analogue and digital instruments, a colour-coded cruise control and speed limiter system, DVD sat-nav, auto-locking, plus hands-free entry and ignition.

There’s also a remote lighting function which makes your Megane shine like a Christmas tree when you can’t find it in car parks, plus a parking brake that automatically applies when the engines is switched off, and release when the acceerator is pressed.
