This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Renault Megane Hatchback review.

Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Like most modern Renaults, the Megane scores highly in terms of safety with a five-star Euro NCAP rating and was the first in its class to do so. It features plenty of airbags: the three-door gets eight, and there's ten on the five-door. It has outstanding security with keyless entry, deadlocks, a Thatcham-approved immobiliser and RAID (Renault Anti-Intruder Device).

Privilege models also benefits from an alarm.

Given that the boot looks so prominent it’s not actually that big, although space can be increased by folding the seats flat. The rear suspension does not intrude into the boot area either. Useful storage areas within the cabin include a large air-conditioned glovebox and sunglasses holder.
