Other Renault Megane (2008 - 2016) models:

  • Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    It probably says I like low sporty estates, and that I have a company car as it is White.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They like the look and drive of the car. My Girls love being able to choose different symbols and voices on the Sat Nav.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Probably if they got the Fuel Consumption correct. It says it should get upto 80mpg, but I am only seeing 46mpg, which is a big drop.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    This will depend on how the MD wants me to spend and my circumstances within the company. Personally I like Estates, but there are likely to be different factors involved, like electric/hybrid.

    Type of dealer you bought from?


    Did you buy this car new?


    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    May 2013

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Uncertain. It seemed like a good deal, but then I was very much limited on budget as to what I was allowed to choose. We Part Exchanged as well.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Low CO2 Emissions Had to be an Estate Within Budget given by the MD.

    What was the dealer like?

    Not brilliant. The sales person got a few details of the car wrong to start with, before coming back with the correct model I was after. Once the details of the car had been confirmed, the mileage on the car was different to that quoted. I didn't have a problem with the Dealer as such, just the sales person seemed to be new.

  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    I can't fault the drive or handling, it's not as grippy as my Mazda, but I wouldn't expect it to be. The car handles well into corners and on windy roads, it is so much better than my previous 307 Estate. On the motorways she just cruises with little effort, plenty of umph to get past cars should you need to.

    What's it like to park?

    No problems with Parking. Visibility all round is good. I'm not the best judgement of size of car, but I can get it into most spaces.

  • Living with it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Not currently.

    What's most practical about your car?

    It has a good boot size, but one feature I do like is that not only does the rear seats split 60/40, but also the passenger seat also folds down flat. Which is great for carrying that extra long load.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    I probably have 2, the Cruise Control can be permanently set on, so you only have to press the buttons on the steering wheel to set the speed. The built in Sat Nav. Just a bonus to have it there all the time, and know where you are as soon as you turn the car on.
