Renault's new entry-level models
The new Megane Sports Tourer Extreme costs £1000 less than the existing Expression model, with the 1.6 petrol version available for £14,495 and the 1.5 dCi 85 diesel version costing £16,685. Standard kit includes air-conditioning, stability control and an auxiliary input for the stereo.
Megane Sports Tourer - £3950 less than a Focus Estate
Following Ford's recent price increases, the petrol-powered Megane Sports Tourer Extreme undercuts the entry-level Ford Focus Estate 1.6 Style by a substantial £3950 - and the diesel version is £3010 cheaper than the Focus Estate 1.6 TDCI 90 Style.
The new Laguna Coupe dCi 150 TomTom costs £19,995 - £1650 less than the previous entry-level version.
As the new model's name suggests, it comes with a standard-fit TomTom sat-nav system, to go with Bluetooth, 18-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights and rear parking sensors.
Both cars are available to order now, with customer deliveries starting in January.
