What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For Small, stylish and chic with good equipment levels

Against A bit small in the back and unsatisfying to drive

Verdict A competent coupe for decent money

Go for… 1.6 Monaco


Renault Megane Coupe
  • 1. The sloping roofline makes getting into the back seats difficult and restricts headroom
  • 2. There have been complaints about poor-quality paintwork, and the body-coloured bumpers are prone to marks
  • 3. Head gasket failures have been reported, so check the inside of the oil filler cap for the sludge that can warn of problems
  • 4. Make sure the clutch works properly, because replacing it is a complicated - and expensive - job
  • 5. Some cars are plagued by starting and ignition problems
