What's the used Renault Megane saloon like?

The Renault Megane Sport Saloon 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. However, the 1.6 petrol and 1.5 turbodiesel can become a bit noisy on the motorway, and this Sport Saloon kicks up some wind noise at speed, although it's generally a quiet cruiser.

The high-set driving position has a good range of adjustment, there's no shortage of quality materials and good design in the cabin, and the saloon's boot is large.

All in all, you'll struggle to get so much safety and luxury kit for the money elsewhere.
