Renault Megane Hatchback rivals

Written by David Ross on

The Megane was revised in 2006 to keep things fresh and up-to-date. The looks had scarcely dated since its launch in 2002 so the makeover was rather light. Consequently it's a case of 'spot the difference' between new and old, with exterior changes consisting of different lights front and rear and a new grille and bumpers. There are some changes to the engine line-up too, including more power for some of the diesels and a new 2.0-litre diesel.

As before, the Megane's strengths continue to be its generous levels of equipment and dedication to occupant safety. It's comfortable on the move, but offers few thrills from behind the wheel.
