The interior layout, fit and finish
If you like to sit quite high above the road, you'll like the seating position in the Renault Megane E-Tech Electric. Granted, it’s not the commanding seating position you get in the Volvo XC40 Recharge, but it’s higher than a typical hatchback.
You’ll also have no trouble getting comfortable – the seats and steering wheel having a good amount of adjustability and adjustable lumbar support is included as standard on the higher trim versions.
Regardless of which trim you go for, you get Android’s Automotive OS and integrated Google services, including Google Maps and Google Assistant. On top of that, every Megane E-Tech Electric gets DAB radio, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.
So far, we’ve only tried the larger of the two systems. Being touchscreen means that it isn’t as easy to use whilst driving as the system in the Mini Electric, which has a physical rotary controller. Still, its swift responses to your prods and logically laid out menus put it among the best in the class. It’s certainly better than the buggy and slow system in the Volkswagen ID.3.
