I'm about the buy a RENAULT MEGANE GRAND SCENIC DYNAMIQUE (100) 1.5DCI. I was wondering what dci means? and also, does this car have a turbo?
A turbocharger is an exhaust gas-driven compressor used to increase the power output of an internal-combustion engine by compressing air that is entering the engine thus increasing the amount of available oxygen. A key advantage of turbochargers is that they offer a considerable increase in engine power with only a slight increase in weight.

dCi is imo Renaults brand on their common rail direct fuel injection systems, as other manufacturers refer to their common rail engines by their own brand names
Renault - dCi
Ford - TDCi
Opel/Vauxhall - CDTi
Mazda - CiTD
Volkswagen - TDI
Common rail direct fuel injection is a modern variant of direct injection system for diesel engines. It features a high-pressure (1000+ bar) fuel rail feeding individual solenoid valves, as opposed to low-pressure fuel pump feeding pump nozzles or high-pressure fuel line to mechanical valves controlled by cams on the camshaft. Third generation common rail diesels now feature piezoelectric injectors for even greater accuracy, with fuel pressures up to 180 MPascal / 1800 bar.
