Used Renault Megane Hatchback (2002 - 2006) Review

The Megane looked pretty radical when it was first launched in 2002 and split opinion as to whether that was a good thing or a bad thing. It's available in a number of different bodystyles, and in an attempt to be all things to all men can be specified with a wide variety of engines and equipment levels.

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

The Megane looked pretty radical when it was first launched in 2002 and split opinion as to whether that was a good thing or a bad thing. It's available in a number of different bodystyles, and in an attempt to be all things to all men can be specified with a wide variety of engines and equipment levels. It excels in many areas, including safety and value, but a series of mechanical and electrical gremlins may make buyers think about another model.

 Loads of storage compartments everywhere very handy when you have a kid.

 The boot is a fair size and passengers never complain about the back. Also there are loads of storage cubbys in the floor, glovebox, centre console and door cards.

 Cheap tax, £30 a year! Great MPG, even though its been remapped to 120bhp!
