What used Renault Megane hatchback will I get for my budget?
Expect a minimum figure of £10,000, at the time of writing, for an early 2016 car with an average mileage from a trader. Up the money to between £11,000 and £13,000 and there are many good Méganes of various trims and engines from 2016 and even 2017. All these will be of average or below-average mileage for the year with a full history, and will often be from franchised dealers.
How much does it cost to run a Renault Megane hatchback?
There’s some impressive fuel economy on offer in the Mégane range, with the 1.5 dCi claiming an average 76.4mpg in some trims and the lower-powered 1.6 dCi averaging 70.6mpg. Even the 1.2-litre petrol manages a respectable 52.3mpg, while the sporty 1.6 petrol claims 47.1mpg, and the punchy 1.6 dCi 165 diesel averages 61.4mpg. Those cars registered before April 2017 will benefit from very low annual car tax bills.
Insurance groupings are good for all Méganes, ranging from group 14 to 27 for the sporty petrol-engined car.
Renault’s standard warranty is three years and 60,000 miles. When the time comes for servicing, costs should be reasonable. Minor services (which should be carried out every 12 months or 10,000 miles ) cost from £140 for petrol models or £190 for diesels.
