Renault has replaced entry-level Extreme versions of its Megane with a new Generation trim.
The Megane Generation is available with a 99bhp 1.6-litre petrol or an 89bhp 1.5-litre diesel engine. Prices start at 10,995 for the petrol and 12,755 for the diesel version.
However, these prices are valid during the manufacturers summer-offer period, which runs until the end of September.
After that, the list price jumps by 3000, although Generation cars will still be 860 cheaper than the discontinued Extreme cars and will be available with generous discounts.
Both models use a five-speed manual gearbox and come with a four-speaker CD stereo with auxiliary input, air-conditioning, cruise and stability controls, hands-free entry and electric windows.
