    Default Megane GT Line Wagon question

    Just wondering if the rear seats on the GTLine fold flat like they seem to in the GT line premium model? I can't seem to find a definitive answer on this one?
    Anyone have a GT line wagon?
    Regards
    Luke

    Yes that is my next option, just thought someone may have the answer online before I make the trek
    I am pretty sure it would though, esp if the GT Line hatch does.

    Good point will do.
    I did try the brochures. The brochures aren't definitive enough as they seem to only show the premium models.

    Sorry but the Megane hatch does not fold flat,has about a 4plus inch step up.Have had one and a friend still does so absolutely sure.

    Wagon does though as far as I remember(but not 100%),lots of room as I think it is a bit longer in the wheelbase and a great car.

    Definitely do in the Mrs 2011 series 3 megane dynamic hatch. We've folded them down heaps of times. It's amazing the crap it'll carry!

    I have a 2015 GT line wagon. The seats fold flat but it's a bit of a faff, particularly if you've been used to pulling a lever in the cargo area and seeing the seats fold automatically. The seat squab has to be lifted and folded forward, then you can fold the seat back forward but you need to remove the head rest(s) and perhaps move the front seat forward to achieve a perfectly flat surface. Heaps of room when it's done, though.

    I hope this helps,

    There is no doubt they fold but the question was do they fold flat and the answer is no.Love to see a photo of yours folded FLAT.

    Default Megane GT Line Wagon question

    This info all helps people, thank you. Yes the folding flat does seem to occur in the GT line brochure with the premium model. Ahh yes PJ that is how my Megane 225 seats worked. Had to pull the seat up then remove head rest before pulling seat back down.
    I was thinking it may have been on a mechanism similar to the R25 rear seats, which do fold flat.

    And then it rises up further nothing like the fold flat of the wagon as long as the seats are far enough forward!!!!

    Thought about getting a life But the rising up further intrigued me. How much weight does it take to make the step rise up to a bout 4 inches? A good 1/2 bag of cement doesn't do it
