What alternatives should I consider to a used Renault Megane hatchback?

You can’t talk about the family car market without mentioning the Volkswagen Golf, but while it might have a more upmarket image than the Megane you’ll pay a lot more for a car of an equivalent age, specification, power output and mileage.

The same is true, albeit to a lesser extent, of the Ford Focus, although opting for one of these over the Renault will also buy you a more involving driving experience and much sharper steering response.

Conversely, the Peugeot 308 and Citroen C4 are similarly cheap to buy but not quite as good to drive as the Megane.

Verdict

The Renault Megane might not be the flashiest family car around, but with prices as cheap as they are it’s still worth considering

  • Great value for money
  • Decent to drive
  • Proving reliable
  • Cramped rear seats
  • Some controls are fiddly
  • Confusing range
