What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's stylish and cheap - enjoy the sun on a budget

Against Not that great to drive; no room in the back

Verdict A cost-effective way into convertible ownership

Go for… 2.0-litre

Avoid… 1.6-litre

Renault Megane Cabriolet
  • 1. Check the hood raises and lowers properly, has no leaks and is in good condition
  • 2. Cabriolet can take only two in the rear, but boot space is adequate
  • 3. There have been complaints about poor-quality paintwork, and the body-coloured bumpers are prone to marks
  • 4. Head gasket failures have been reported, so check the inside of the oil filler cap for the sludge that can warn of problems
  • 5. Make sure the clutch works properly, because replacing it is a complicated - and expensive - job
