Ownership cost

What used Renault Megane R.S. hatchback will I get for my budget?

Prices for this generation of the Mégane RS start at around £23,000, this for a 2018 RS 280 model in good condition and with a nominal mileage, bought from a franchised dealer. Expect to fork out between £27,000 and £30,000 on a 300 Trophy, or a rather insane £63,500 for the stripped-out Trophy-R fitted with the optional carbonfibre wheels.

How much does it cost to run a Renault Megane R.S. hatchback?

MPG

The official WLTP fuel consumption figure for the RS 280 is 35.8mpg and a near-identical 35.3mpg for the RS 300 Trophy. If you go for one with an automatic gearbox, these figures improve, but you're unlikely to see much of a difference in the real world. 

Road tax

Owners of all models that cost less than £40,000 when new will have to pay the current standard flat-rate fee of road tax. However, the Trophy-R will have an additional tax levied on it because it breached this threshold. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here.

Servicing

Expect servicing and other maintenance costs to be higher than those of the regular Mégane. You can buy one of two Easylife service plans from Renault, provided you do so within a year of the registration date. The least expensive is a three-year/30,000-mile schedule for £449, or a four-year/40,000-mile plan for £699.
