Renault Megane

We’ve driven the Renault MΓ©gane and found it to be both cheap to run and well-equipped.

With a new MΓ©gane arriving this summer, prices of the outgoing model have plummeted. We’ve found a tempting deal online for a diesel MΓ©gane hatchback.

For

The diesel engine is both frugal and efficient, with this particular model claiming an impressive 78.5mpg and 93g/km of CO2. The engine is also very smooth and quiet.

The MΓ©gane handles well, with relatively responsive and grippy steering. Body roll is kept to a minimum, too.

Inside, the MΓ©gane is fitted with high quality materials, which give it a reasonably classy feel. The digital speedo and push-to-start button help the MΓ©gane stand out from rivals.

Against

The four-star Euro NCAP crash test result is a little disappointing for a Renault, although all models come with front, side and curtain airbags.

The rear leg room is poor and the sloping roof can make it feel cramped. The ride isn’t great, either, and can feel uncomfortable on bumpy roads.

Should I add any options?

The Dynamique Nav model comes with a host of equipment, including air-con, Bluetooth, sat-nav and dual-zone climate control. It also has keyless entry and starting, and automatic wipers and lights. There's not much more you'll need, but the large saving means you could add many luxury extras.

What are its rivals?

Both the Ford Focus and VW Golf offer more spacious cabins and better ride quality, but they are also more expensive. A base diesel Focus costs around Β£18,295, while the cheapest diesel Golf costs around Β£20,370.
