For The Renaultsport Megane offers a superb mix of power, poise and precision. It’s also well equipped.

Against It needs the optional Cup Chassis Pack for the best handling. Over-the-shoulder visibility is poor and the cabin could be roomier.

The Renault Megane Renaultsport is one of the best hot hatches on sale, especially with the Cup Chassis Pack fitted. Its hardcore nature won't be for everyone, though.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Compared with the five-door Renault Megane, which is generally comfortable, the Megane Coupe has stiffer, lower suspension for sharper handling, so it isn't as forgiving over bumps.

Renault has an exemplary safety record, and this model doesn't let the side down – it has a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating.

As well as the front, side and curtain airbags that are standard on every model, the Coupe also has front seat airbags, which are designed to stop you slipping under the seatbelts in a crash, and stability control.

There are pros and cons to choosing this coupe over the five-door hatch. On the one hand, the coupe is a much smarter-looking car than its five-door brother, but it hasn't got anything like as much room in the back - and the five-door isn't that great to start with.
