The Renault Megane has been given a stylish makeover and had a range of new fuel-efficient engines added to make it a great choice in the compact car segment.
Owners can enjoy economy of around 86 mpg and the engine in the Renault Megane Energy dCi 110 will deliver CO2 emissions of just 86g/km.
The Megane’s engine range consists of six engines with power outputs from 90 HP to 205 HP.
There’s also a GT model available which has been created in conjunction with Renault Sport.
The Megane has being a big seller for Renault over the years and the new version should bring it a new army of fans.
New additions for the Renault Megane
Among the new additions for the Renault Megane are a range of features that are normally found on cars in higher segments including a colour head-up display and a 8.7 inch touchscreen.
The car sits on a chassis that gives it a nice balance and it’s slightly longer and lower than the model it replaces.
The new model also comes with daytime running lights and style redesigns to the front and rear ends.
The Renault Megane cabin has also been given a makeover with new higher quality materials and the design is aimed at creating a pleasant place for the driver and passengers. The seats provide more comfort and some models come with soft touch leather seats as well as leather trim is to the instrument and air vent details.
The model is also a practical choice with the boot having 434 litres of space, the largest in its sector, and there’s plenty of rear room too.
Engineers have obviously taken a few design and build queues from the excellent Espace and the firm’s new Talisman plus there’s a range of driver assistance systems which will help.

Among the standard features are cruise control, lane departure warning, automated emergency braking and speed limit warnings.
Options include reversing camera, hands-free parking as well as automated main headlight beams.
Models that come with the larger touchscreen also have voice recognition to enable the easy, and safe, operation of a mobile phone, radio and various apps including satnav.
However, most drivers will probably enjoy Renault’s new multi-sense technology which allows them to personalise the driving experience to modify engine and pedal response.
They can also adjust gearshift speed in the auto gearbox units and some models also come with seat massagers.
The all-new Renault Megane goes on sale in the UK early next year with deliveries starting next summer.
