Review

The E-Tech plug-in hybrid makes some sense to company car users or those private buyers who can make full use of its all-electric potential, and is reasonably priced for a PHEV, but the Megané Sport Tourer's petrol and diesel engines are a bit off the pace in terms of efficiency and performance. The load bay of the E-Tech is slightly bigger than the Ceed Sportwagon’s, but non-hybrid models have a small boot for the class, while rear seat space is unimpressive. It’s disappointing, too, that automatic emergency braking comes as standard only on the top trim level.

get the best price

This sporty trim adds to Iconic with standard 17in alloy wheels, more aggressive front and rear bumpers, automatic emergency braking, a rear parking camera, RS line specific trimming inside including a sports steering wheel, a 10.0in driver’s display and a larger 9.3in touchscreen infotainment system.

Despite being the most expensive engine choice, it makes the most sense if you can make use of the all electric running or it lowers your BIK payments. Performance is decent enough albeit quite a bit slower than the Skoda Superb PHEV estate and it operates smoothly, too.
