Used Renault Megane 16-present
Review continues below...

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

The Seat Leon shares much of its underpinnings with the class-leading Volkswagen Golf – and it shows. It’s great to drive, with tidy handling and a good range of punchy and efficient engines. It’s well equipped, too, and relatively cheap to buy as a used car, as well as being cheap to run.

The Volkswagen Golf sets the benchmark for family cars. It’s brilliant to drive, well equipped, supremely refined and comparatively cheap to run. The car has a classy quality that all of its rivals struggle to match.

Verdict

The Renault Mégane is well equipped and has lots of safety kit, but it's only so-so to drive and isn’t as practical as the best family cars

  • Plenty of standard equipment
  • Good safety kit
  • Rear room is tight
  • Not as good to drive as some rivals
