Introduction

What Car? says...

Although it’s been on sale in the UK for over 20 years, the Renault Megane has never enjoyed the popularity of its major rivals. Previous versions had plenty of style, and Gallic charm, but they were often overlooked in favour of the more mainstream family hatchbacks.

To make matters worse, the last version felt distinctly outclassed towards the end of its life. With this all-new fourth-generation model, though, Renault promises greater all-round sophistication and more joie de vivre. It’s been developed from the ground up to renew its battle with big players like the Ford Focus, Seat Leon and VW Golf. There’s a handsome and muscular exterior, and a smart new high-tech interior that contains all the modern safety kit and all the executive toys you’d expect to see only on much pricier cars.

It also comes with a range of petrol and diesel engines that include a 1.5-litre diesel with low CO2 emissions to suit company car buyers, and a 202bhp 1.6-litre petrol for those searching for more zip.

Read on over the next few pages and we’ll tell you what it's like to drive, how it stacks up against those rivals and we'll also choose our favourite engines and trims. If you like the look of what you see, you might like it even more when you find out how much you can save without haggling, by visiting our New Car Buying pages.
