For The Renault Megane Coupe is well equipped and is cheaper than most rivals. It’s available with some efficient engines, too, while the Renaultsport models are sensational to drive.
Against The other versions aren’t as good to drive as key rivals, and the ride is firm. There’s too much wind and road noise, you’ll be cramped in the back, and the dashboard is a mess.

The Renaultsport model is one of the best hot hatches on sale, but the other Renault Megane Coupe verions are best avoided.

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.
