What's the used Renault Megane hatchback like?
The Renault Megane takes bumps and potholes with a comfortable spring in its step. That traditionally French soft ride quality means there's a degree of lean through corners, but it isn't at all unpleasant, and there's plenty of grip. It's just a shame the electric power steering lacks feel.
All of the engines are willing and fuel-efficient, although the 1.6 petrol and 1.5 turbodiesel can become a bit noisy on the motorway.
The high-set driving position has a good range of adjustment, and there's no shortage of high-quality materials and good design in the cabin.
You'll struggle to get so much safety and luxury kit for the money elsewhere, and perhaps the only major complaint is that the hatchback's boot could be bigger.
