The Megane, produced since '95 and now on its beautifully designed third generation, continues to carve a successful niche in the hearts and minds of British drivers. The Megane III, launched in 2008, did away with the Megane II’s iconic hatchback, opting instead for a more self-contained look. The III models – Hatch, Coupe, Sport Tourer, Coupe Cabriolet and RenaultSport (WhatCar Best Hot Hatch for 2011) – each offer exceptional steering, superb road feel and real comfort. The front seating positions are roomy even in the Coupe and the boots are sizeable. As you would expect from Renault, the trims and engine alternatives are almost endless so speak to dealers with multiple sites and you’ll often find a Megane that feels tailored for you.
Although first unveiled in 1995, the first Renault Megane to make a mark was the second generation model. A clever mix of style and affordability, it was named the European Car of the Year in 2003.
Since then it has remained a leading choice in the family car market, and coming in a number of styles and body shapes, is a versatile and frugal car which boasts some of the most eye catching designs on the market.
Renault Meganes are stylish, economic cars, and coming in a range of styles and shapes, there is sure to be something to please drivers of all ages. The first generation was released in 1995, but it was arguably only in 2002, with the second generation, that the Megane came into its own.
This second generation featured a heavily redesigned look which included a unique - and now iconic - rear end. This also means that the Megane has good boot space, and so is as practical as it is good to look at. While the luggage space is ample, there have been concerns that there is a slight squeeze when it comes to rear passenger room, but room in the front is better. The Megane range has always been one of the best equipped on the market, and some of the most recent models benefit from a tie-in with TomTom which means that they come equipped with sat navs as standard.
On the road, Meganes are comfortable and composed, yet this has led some drivers to comment that it makes for a drive that isn't as exciting as some of its rivals. On the standard model grip is good and steering is accurate and responsive, while the Renaultsport offers an altogether more exciting and purposeful drive.
Running costs in the Megane are particularly good across the range, offering decent miles per gallon returns. One of the best however, is the 109bhp 1.5 dCi, which features stop/start technology in newer models, keeping CO2 emissions under the 100g/km threshold, and therefore qualifying it as exempt from road tax.
One criticism is that Meganes don't hold their value very well, which might be a problem if you are looking to buy one new, but as a used car this means they come in at very affordable prices. Along with their stellar safety rating, their run costs and their practicality, Meganes are some of the best value cars on the market.
The very first model Megane was introduced in 1995, but it was the Mk II, launched in 2002, that really caught the public's eye.
