Which used Renault Megane hatchback should I buy?
It's not a car you'll want to zip about in, so we'd go for the smallest petrol engine, the 1.4. This gives out 95bhp, which is good for its size. There are also a 1.6 and 1.8, should you want something a little stronger. They're also the only engines to be available with auto 'boxes, although these are very rare.
Of the diesels, the 105bhp 1.9 is much smoother than the 80bhp version, and uses less fuel, too.
