Introduction

What Car? says...

What’s in a name? Just as is the case with several of its closest rivals, the Renault Megané Sport Tourer eschews the Estate identity, despite that being exactly what it is. It’s a long-roofed version of the brand’s Megane family hatchback; one of the few ‘traditional’ models that still features in a Renault range that’s increasingly dominated by SUVs and electric cars

There’s clearly still a role for spacious family cars that aren’t SUVs, though, and the Megané ST has something to offer fans of electrification, too. You can opt for turbocharged petrol or diesel engines, or a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) that combines a non-turbo petrol engine with a pair of electric motors and a sizable battery pack. The result is a decent electric-only range , low CO2 emissions and impressive fuel economy.

It also means that the Megané ST can go on the same shopping list as other PHEV estates, such as the Kia Ceed Sportswagon, Peugeot 508 SW and Skoda Superb Estate, while also competing against conventionally powered versions of those cars. You might also consider the self-charging hybrid Toyota Corolla Touring Sports along with the Ford Focus and Skoda Octavia estates.

There are just two trim levels to pick from, well-equipped Iconic or sportier and even more kit-laden RS Line. We’ll let you know which one we recommend in this review, along with how the Megané ST drives, what it’s like for passengers and how spacious it is inside, plus how much it’ll cost to run and own.
