For The Megane Sport Tourer is a spacious and affordable small family estate with a well-built cabin. It handles well, too, and is available with some fine engines. The practical rear end is neatly styled.

Against The rear seats aren’t the easiest to fold and there’s a step in the load floor when they’re down. Renault’s reliability needs to improve and resale values will be comparatively weak.

The Renault Megane Sport Tourer offers decent practicality and sharp looks, and every model comes reasonably equipped. However, the rival Skoda Octavia Estate is cheaper, bigger and better to drive.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The Renault Megane isn’t remarkable in any one area, but it’s a decent all-rounder and there’s a big range to choose from.

Even the entry-level Expression+ model comes with air-conditioning, Bluetooth, a USB socket and stability control, although you may be tempted to upgrade to the Dynamique TomTom, which adds automatic lights and wipers, cruise control and satellite-navigation. We’d stay away from the range-topping GT Line Tom Tom model, though; it’s expensive and comes with lowered suspension that makes the ride distinctly firm.

Of the engines, the 1.2-litre turbo petrol, 109bhp 1.5 diesel and 129bhp 1.6 diesel are all worth considering.

Renault has been making a big noise about improving quality and reliability, but things still need to get better. The brand hasn’t fared that well in our most recent Reliability Supertests or JD Power Customer Satisfaction Surveys.

Reader test team says:

Renault Megane Sport Tourer 1.6 VVT 110 TomTom 5dr

I am the owner of a Megane Sport tourer in Dynamique form. Its the 1.6 (109 bhp). Its a good car, not let me down yet, but it has niggles. Mine is…
