Which used Renault Megane coupe should I buy?

Megane buyers had a wide choice of engines, and these were revised in 2000 as part of general improvments across the range. Try to find one of the later cars because these engines have better fuel economy and more performance.

That said, avoid the 1.4-litre 16v unit - it feels slow and breathless - in favour of the 1.6, which is noticeably faster. The 2.0-litre is fastest, but a little noisy when you work it hard.
