High performance, great looking car with practicality
RENAULT MEGANE 2.0 T 16V Renaultsport 250 3dr (Review date: 13th August '11)
The RS Megane isdefinitely a head turning car with exceptional high performance. I previously had a Focus ST and prefer the RS Megane over this anytime. The handling of the RS on the roads is strong, it holds so well on corners and you feel safe. My colleague at work asked about my car and I definitely recommended it, he too has one and has fell in love with it.
I use it mainly for local drives to work in the week and found the fuel consumption to be a lot lighter than the Focus ST, in fact for a high performance car I was pleasantly surprised at how much fuel I had to put in, I was expecting to spend more. On the long motorway journey up North it was more economical than the £85 I used to put in the ST for the same journey. The Recaro bucket seats and various adjustments available make it a really comfortable ride even on long journeys.
Considering it is a sports car the boot capacity is really good, plenty of room for sports bag, suitcases etc. The only problem is depending on how 'agile' your back seat passengers are for my elderly parents it wasn't the easiest car to get in and out the back of. I genuinely haven't any negatives about this car other than my parent's ability to get in and out of the back!! I love it.
World Series looks, DCI Economy
RENAULT MEGANE 1.5 dCi 106 Dynamique 3dr (Review date: 27th June '11)
Superb economy, once the car has run in. The handling is exceptional, very precise steering, and level through the bends. For a 1.5dci the sprint to sixty feels quicker than Renaults quoted figures. And even for a coupe this car is very practical even when you have three kids, as I do. The boot is very big, and access in and out of the rear is helped by it's long doors and front seats that fold right out of the way. The gear change is short and precise and braking is very efficient. An all round highly capable car.
Renault Megan Coupe - A classy car that won't break the bank
RENAULT MEGANE 1.6 16V 110 Dynamique TomTom 3dr (Review date: 16th June '11)
A great looking car particularly in metallic black (the white look stunning too), the silver bumper inserts give an added sporty look. The choice between Coupé, Hatch and Sport Tourer was based on looks as they are not dissimilar in price, I rarely carry rear seat passengers so the 3 door configuration isn't a problem, however “oldies” can struggle with entry and exit to/from rear seat.
My car is the 1.6 16v (110) petrol with manual box and my driving is mainly 50/50 city/A road and I have averaged 37 mpg over the first year, this combined with 1800 mile / 2 year service intervals makes for an economic car to run. A good feature for the city driving is the speed control set it at 30mph and the cameras can't get you.
The performance is fine for me but I wouldn't describe it as sporty. Features that I particularly like are the hands free key card, the built in sat nav and Blue-tooth, features not usually found on this price of car (a really expensive extra on some brands of vehicle).
Love it !!!
Nice attempt at fun n frugle!
RENAULT MEGANE 1.5 dCi 106 Dynamique TomTom 3dr (Review date: 5th April '11)
Having grown tired of paying out to run a petrol BMW 1 series I needed a car for work that is economical and practical but one that didnt make me look like I'm driving my Dads car. The Megane coupe seemed the best choice available.
I was hesitant in choosing the 1.5dci worrying about a lack of power that would remove any fun in driving driving but I was pleasently surprised the moment I took the test drive. While it will never win any drag races it pulls nicley up to motorway speeds and the 6 speed gearbox is giving me just under 54mpg. Cornering at higher speeds does show that this model is more about appearance than performance though.
The gadgets are all faultless from the excellent Sat Nav to the handsfree card which now ensures I hate driving my wifes car as it needs a key! Outrageous I know!!
It is not ideal as a family run around due to the constrained rear seats but my two kids under ten fit in nicely and enjoy controlling the music from the back using the MP3-bluetooth connectivity, (although I now know all Justin Beibers songs word for word).
I have had the car back in the garage once due to the drivers door dropping slighly, which given the size of the door may be understandable but is also worrying due to the fact that it has fallen so soon.
Overall I'm very happy with the car. You will struggle to find a better looking, better equiped car with such fantatstic running costs.
Renault Megane World Series
RENAULT MEGANE 1.6 16V 110 Dynamique 3dr (Review date: 28th March '11)
The world series is a real head turner, I've lost count of the amount of times people have done a double take a traffic lights. The sports kit completely changes the look from a standard megane. However, it's a sports car in disguise, it's only a 1.6 engine so not the fastest but suits my lifestyle which is mostly city driving. I've had mine a year now with no problems at all, I love it!
Swift but thirsty Gallic chic
RENAULT MEGANE 2.0 TCE Dynamique 3dr (Review date: 27th March '11)
Had the Renault for over 19 months now so feel qualified to give some feedback on its performance. I picked this model, initially because it just looks to drop-dead gorgeous, a real head-turner, particularly in the Cayenne Orange. It's used every day as a commuter and general everyday car. The looks aside, this car is very practical with a large boot and a huge rear space with the back seats folded down. The cabin is typically French, smart, sharp and a little odd. The huge speedo sits right in front of your view so no-one has an excuse for speeding! I love the look of it but others think it looks a bit cheesey and obvious. The finish in the cabin is good with no rattles or squeaks. The stereo is good and the i-pod connectivity a God send. Performance is swift with a 0-60 in less than 8 seconds, a fact which has lead some boy racers looking a bit miffed at traffic lights. There is some road noise and the tyres which were on the car were terrible in the snow so I have changed them and the car was much more polar bear than gummi bear this winter. On the downside, it is depreciating at a sad rate and the fuel consumption never gets above 30 mpg, no matter how I drive! The heater/air-con is rubbish with the cabin taking an age to heat up in winter. It has been absolutely 100% reliable and the keyless entry and start/stop button is a clever touch. This is a fast, handsome, practical car that drives well, stops well, is, for me, cheap to insure and very nice to own. If you want a swealtering cabin and 70 mpg give this car a body swerve. If you want some fun then go and get one, older ones are very cheap, such is the depreciation!!
Stunning Renault Megane Coupe
RENAULT MEGANE 1.5 dCi 106 Dynamique TomTom 3dr (Review date: 7th March '11)
Stunning good looks this Renault Megane Coupe Dynamique TomTom 3 Door, has them all, with a 1.5 DCI engine you get economy and power. I was quite surprised the fist time on a motorway how quickly I had exceeded the national speed limit and there were plenty more horses available as well due to the Turbo charged engine. As a first time diesel usually a petrolhead I am very pleased. Inside the car is well appointed with it's keyless ignition and entry, push button start. the on-board goodies include Sat-nav by TomTom superb radio CD player, computer even dips your oil for you. Driving, the Cruise control /speed limiter are very useful and easy to use. Ride is harder and more responsive than the 5 door Model. Plenty of room in the front for 6 foot plus blokes but that means the rear passengers suffer, we tend to have the smallest child behind the driver because my better half is small so the front passenger seat is well forward thus leaving plenty of leg room behind her.
Puts the joy in driving
RENAULT MEGANE 1.6 16V 110 Dynamique 3dr (Review date: 4th March '11)
'Get in and go' should have been the advert Renault used for this car. The headlights and windscreen wipers are automatic (and nicely responsive). If your phone is bluetooth enabled it will automatically connect to the cars speakers, allowing calls to be answered from the control panel by the steering wheel (which also controls volume for radio and calls).
The keycards are handsfree, great for when you are laden with the weekly shop and don't have a free hand to lock the vehicle - it does it for you. Double tapping the lock button also closes the windows without having to have the engine or electrics running.
Driving the car is a pleasure, the car does have sports suspension but is still quite smooth when going along. The onboard computer displays a number of useful things such as mileage left in tank based on the drivers current mpg.
Having superguard on the external and internal surfaces makes cleaning the car so easy, a quick wash over and it's done!
Running the car seems quite cheap, with an average mpg of around 30-35, and tax and insurance is affordable, however these obviously do change from driver to driver.
My only slight complaint would be that the aircon comes on automatically if you have the air vents set to windscreen, however the aircon doesn't seem to effect the petrol consumption very much and a simple push of the aircon button turns it off, so it's not much of an issue.
In all, this is a great car which I will be sorry to see go, however I am sure that the new owner will take pride in having not only a car that looks great, but a car that takes care of the little things automatically - it's surprising how these small things can make such a big difference.
renault megane coupe
RENAULT MEGANE 1.5 dCi 106 I-Music 3dr (Review date: 25th February '11)
Car ok if your single, not suitable if you have friends cause theres no leg room in rear. Engine smoky at start up if being used for town use only, its not all that fuel efficent approx 38 mpg. On long runs driving like a granny [sorry grannys] you can get 60 ish mpg. Ours has approx 5k on it now and yes I did tell wife not to buy it but to replace the toyota with a newer one instead, oh well we all have our cross to bear. On a postive note it does corner fairly well when being pushed although I do not intend to push it to hard in case I end up pushing it from the out side if the older ones are anything to go by.
