Which used Renault Megane estate should I buy?
Compared with the Megane hatchback and the Scenic, this isn't a big seller. So you'll need to stay flexible over which used model you buy - or wait an age before you find the right one. Most buyers go for the 1.6 petrol or 1.5 diesel engines and pick Expression trim, which is the cheapest option.
The diesels pull hardest from low revs, which is something you'll appreciate when driving with a load aboard. However, these models are dearer to buy second-hand, so you'll only make a saving overall if you cover plenty of miles. Do the sums and then decide.
There's also a 1.4 petrol, which struggles in such a big car, a punchy 2.0 and a 1.9 130bhp diesel. You can also go for sporty Dynamique trim or plush Privilege.
Out of that lot, we'd stick with Expression trim and either the 1.6 petrol or 1.5 106bhp diesel.
