I've had this car for 2 1/2yrs and it has done all I've asked of it
RENAULT MEGANE 2.0 T 16V Renaultsport 250 Cup 3dr (Review date: 28th March '13)
I bought my car as an ex demonstrator at 6mths old and I have used it as a main car and in the last 4 months my only car. Once you get in through the odd shaped boot there is a lot of room in the car and I have carried everything from flat packed wardrobes to snowboards and kit, when not carrying kit though it will take easily 4 adults and 5 with a fair degree of comfort. The front seats are comfortable and dash well laid out. with loads of cubby holes and kit to make life comfortable and easier.
I have owned my car for 2 1/2 yrs and have had no problems. The car was serviced and has just had it's first MOT with not a single pick up. Some of the body panel gaps and finish inside is typicaly French but nothing that causes problems just a little untidy.
Fuel was a nice surprise, when driving conservitavely I can easily get mid 30's to the gallon but if you have a heavy right foot it quickly drops. Serviceing was what I would expect and with no repairs I can't comment too much on costs. Tyres for the 19" wheels can be pricey though.
And now the real reason you by the Megane. I test drove a couple of coupe's / Hot hatches and nothing touched this for the way it drives, it is quick and handles like it is on rails. It is communacitive and although quiet at low revs gives a low growl with a bit of throttle. I spend a lot of time on country lanes and it is faultless here and it always feels a shame when I am sat on the motorway with the cruise control on.
I am selling my car as my circumstancies have changed but I would not hesitate to buy another if the chance arose

The RS250 is the best driver's car on the road. This is almost unanimously confirmed in the Motoring Press. Its slightly more powerful 265 version has set the world front wheel drive record for the Nurburgring! But it is also a mixture of sublime style AND practicality. It matches or beats the looks of, say, the Alfa Brera, and yet I can take a family of 4 with luggage to Western France. In other words the definition of "the greatest hot hatch in the world" as described in one motoring publication but without designing a box on wheels. It is averaging 32.6 mpg, and yet you can overtake 4 or 5 cars at once( and I'm not talking about motorways here), and take corners at G ratings only Ferrari could better ( one Top Gear test has this Renault cornering at GREATER G ratings than a Ferrari).
Renault Roadside assistance is included too.
Any gripes? Well, no hot hatch can match the genius of the Honda Civic Type R's rear seats, but I've transported an old freezer in the back. The doors' handles are located too near the hinges, so windy days need your attention, as leverage is reduced. And cup-holders are non existent ,barring a well under the key slot ( too shallow). Utterly superb.
RENAULT MEGANE 1.6 16V 110 Dynamique TomTom 3dr (Review date: 29th February '12)
I brought my Renault Meganne with the view to purchasing a reliable, larger 'adult' car from my previous cars. I wasn't quite ready to give up my sporty cars yet wanted something a bit more mature.
With its sporty exterior and comfy surround seats I was thoroughly impressed on my test drive of the Meganne.
The boot is extremely spacious and the sound system is brilliant when being designated driver on our way out at the weekend or using bluetooth and connecting my iPod on long journeys. Also on long journeys the built in sat nav is brilliant.
I am still getting used to using cruise control but finding it brilliant on quieter roads such as the m26! keeping my speed at 65 enables me to go further on my tank of petrol.
Although it is quite long and doesn't fit in my garage, I believe this car is brilliant for my age group (20-25) and looks as well as drives great.
Looks and awesome driving appeal put Megane 250 RS top of pile
RENAULT MEGANE 2.0 T 16V Renaultsport 250 Cup 3dr (Review date: 10th February '12)
How to claim the title "best hot hatch" as has the Renault Megane 250 in many publications? There has to be a balance between power, handling, practicality, and looks.
From any angle the RS 250 is stunning. A Golf will hold more in its more conventional box design, but the RS holds plenty enough. Only the now defunct Honda Type R better blends space with looks of such rakish elegance . The handling and driving are acknowledged as the best of all hot hatches.
A family of four such as ours can easily travel in comfort. Suspension on the supposedly harder Cup is extremely supportive. The outlook in the rear is restricted so a panoramic sunroof would be worth considering. I have options like satnav, rear sensors, free servicing for 3 years and Supaguarded white paint.
There are some gripes. Controls are very digital. My personal preference is for push /headlights, pull/dipped. These are always pull. Trip computer buttons are on the wiper lever and are sensitive. The inside door grips are located too far forward for sensible leverage. Most niggling is the fuel consumption which is stubbornly staying below 32 mpg despite sensible driving ( 34 officially ). My previous Type R was comfortably 34 ( officially 31!).
If you want to always be thrilled to see and be seen in a car at a reasonable price-£22395 for a 155mph, 0-60 in 6.1 secs, 250 bhp coupe which outlaps cars at 4 times the price- then look no further.
Renault Megane Coupe. Great, but not running for gold!
RENAULT MEGANE 1.5 dCi 106 Dynamique TomTom 3dr (Review date: 26th January '12)
I have owned my Renault Megane Coupe Dynamique Tomtom for a year and a half now, and I can't help but feel the novelty is wearing.
The car I usually go for are sporty, but practical which can be hard to find. This ticked all the right boxes! The equipment you get as standard on this model is amazing. Most of which will cost you a kings ransom in optional extras for equivalent cars. The new striking looks for the coupe model are fantastic also. I was amazed that the tax was only £30 per year, and can potentially deliver 900 miles to a tank on a motorway run! The car really suits my personal and business needs to the max. However, I suppose the good times can't always last forever.
Despite great looks, exceptional equipment and a good driving position, the car lacks in the handling department. There is a button to turn off the traction control, and as far as I can see, does absolutely nothing whether it be on or off! It sometimes struggles to slip into 3rd gear and the car rolls around quite a bit through the corners. There is also a huge acceleration delay when you initially take off from a stand still, which can be rather dangerous around the streets of London.
As a whole, I can't escape the fact that I really do love my Megane. There is loads of boot space, enough room for 4 people comfortably, and doesn't break the bank! But unfortunately, the underlying issues also can't be escaped. I would rate this car 10/10 if it was just slightly better as a "drivers" car, and not just a practical 2 door coupe.

If you want a family run around don't buy this car but if you want a car that makes you smile everytime you get in it then this is the car for you.
This is a performance car so the ride is quite firm but the handling is superb.
My wife uses this car for work everyday and she loves it.
We are both in our forties so insurance is very reasonable but i would think it would be horrendous to insure for the younger driver.
we only cover around 6,000 miles a year in this as it is our second car so running costs are not too bad but if you like to put your foot down it will drink the petrol we average around 25 to 30 miles to the gallon.
To sum up this is a great car with excellent performance for a very reasonable price
Good lookikg and practical
RENAULT MEGANE 1.5 dCi 106 Dynamique TomTom 3dr (Review date: 18th January '12)
Great looking car even in standard trim.
Superb engine really smooth around town /normal driving but get onto a fast road and the engine really packs a punch
Really precise steering and firm but comfortable suspension.
Excellent interior comfort and features as standard
Really good mpg both around town and on the motorway
I'm a driving instructor so the car is used daily for tuition and the pupils really love it
The only down side is the lack of view to the rear /blind spot but it makes you looks properly and once your accustomed to this you can easily overcome this small shortfall
World Series - Sheep in Wolf's clothing
RENAULT MEGANE 1.5 dCi 106 Expression 3dr (Review date: 5th December '11)
I bought a Renault Megane Coupe World Series from new, my first ever new car, and have been so pleased with it both from a practical point of view and also with the aesthetics. It attracts so many compliments with the sexy alloy wheels and by the same token is nippy and economical to drive - I do a bit of driving for work and usually get 550 miles out of a tank of diesel, which is good fuel economy. Although it's 3 door the back seat is spacious, and can fit adults comfortably, and the boot is also a good size. Thoroughly recommended.
Best Car I have Had
RENAULT MEGANE 2.0 T 16V Renaultsport 250 3dr (Review date: 2nd December '11)
I love this car, it is practical performance car...2 words you dont normally hear together.
I has plenty of power and is smooth.
I have had audis, BMWs and Minis and i can honestly say this car brings the biggest smile to my face.
It looks good and the seats are very comfortable on a long drive.
Fuel economy is good again bearing in mind this is a performance car!
The boot is a decent size too.
The only thing I was disappointed with was the standard stereo...if you are ordering from new, get the upgraded one.
But overall the best car I have ever owned!!
RENAULT MEGANE 1.9 dCi 130 Dynamique 3dr (Review date: 1st November '11)
Love the car! Really sad to have to sell it due to company car arrival.
Reasonable boot space, not fantastic but plenty for everyday use.
Good room in the back seat but could be classed as a little claustrophobic due to the small windows of the coupe.
Pleanty of power for everyday, if you want a sports car - it is not! Ever so slight lag on power delivery if you want to push it hard, but you don't notice this 99.9% of the time.
