What used Renault Megane sports will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Renault Megane sports?

Meganes were big sellers and, although the Cabriolet wasn't as popular as the hatchback and saloon models, there are plenty out there to choose from.

Most are generally good value for money, and if you've got a reliable one it won't cost a fortune to run. But, again, it makes more sense to go for a post-2000 model, as the service intervals changed from 12,000 miles to 18,000, so your running costs will fall accordingly.

Likewise, fuel economy shouldn't put you off. The 1.6 delivers a solid 40mpg, while the 2.0-litre's figure falls to 37mpg, reasonable considering the performance on offer.
