Very sharp brakes, turbo lag

I have been driving my Megane since September 2003, and I find it a thoroughly enjoyable car to drive, as do most other people who have driven it. The Megane that I am doing a review on is the Megane 1.5DCi 80bhp Dynamique 5-door hatchback with climate control and MP3 player in addition. I have...

Very spacious, great fuel economy.

Not everybody likes the astetics.

I have a 5 years old second-hand 5 doors black Renault Megane 1.5 Hatchback and it is the best car that I had to date. In my oppinion the range is very well priced and offers great value for money. New models start at £14000 however you can pick up a second hand car for a very reasonable price of...

I have always been a diesel car owner because I am no mug and don't want to be paying 60 quid a week topping up my tank. This car can easily achieve 60mpg and i've even had it reading up at its maximum 99.9mpg on a few occassions. On the average motorway journey it will average out at between 65...

“Megane 1.5dci Dynamique (80)”

published 18/11/2007

Economy, reliability, comfort

small boot

I've owned a 1.5DCI Dynamique from new (2004) and have covered 63,000 miles. Had a couple of minor things fixed under warranty, door handle paint and steering column knock(?), despite not buying the car from a Main Dealer they honoured warranty repairs. Cheap Road Tax, Car Insurance, comfortable...

Features, driving position, value

Reliability, customer service

I owned one of these from new for 6 months at the end of 2003. In that 6 month period I actually had it for 5 months, the other month it spent in the garage over 6 different times. I bought the car for its looks and for the various gadgets you get as standard. Having never owned one before I was...

Fuel Economy, high spec interior, gorgeous

none so far

This is a review of the newest Megane, there is not that much difference in this car and it's predecesor but what changes there are would appear to be big improvements. I had a 1.4 Megane (2003) and loved it so when I got my new model I was really surprised at how much better it was. Exterior...

I am currently leasing a Megane Oasis, through an employee deal at work (Lookers in Northern Ireland [Charles Hurst Lt.d]). The Oasis is really a base trim, with some extras from the higher models. You get a panoramic sun roof and air con., electrically folding, colour coded door mirros, keyless...

“a balanced argument”

published 19/06/2006

econmical, looks cool, very comfy

turbo lag

The Mégane II was launched in 2002[1], and marked a completely fresh start. The two cars bear very little resemblance, the new vehicle having been inspired by the manufacturer's new style first seen in the Avantime. The enormous success of the Megane across Europe proved that Renault's new bold...

Had this car now for about 6 months, after trading in a Cilo I owned for 3 years, it's got that much needed extra room but the handling's not quite as sharp - don't think its bad though. So far it's been faultless (except I agree about getting wet when you open the boot in the rain!). Even in...

I received my Megane in October 2003 and have been very impressed with the all-round performance of the car. I'm not an expert on cars but this has definitely been the best car I have had. It offers excellent road handling, great looks, very good economy and a turn of speed I haven't had with...

“Megane 1.5dci Dynamique”

published 01/10/2004

Just brilliant, 60+ MPG

Get wet when opening boot

I bought this car for my wife on a personal car lease. We are only paying £180 per month for a year with no deposit. It is about £1500 cheaper in the first year than Renault. It is a very good and practical car. Fantastic fuel consumption. On a careful run you can easily get 50-60 MPG. A tank of...

“stylish but very unreliable”

published 25/08/2013

style, cool electronics but slightly gimmicky

reliability

I owned a 2005 Renault megane DCI (The one with the big derrière) for roughly a year and a half. I was first attracted to it because of its stylish looks with and cool electrics however this was a decision I lived to regret. The curvaceous shape certainly looks good and it comes with an array of...

I bought my 105dci Dynamic 4 months ago and so far have only done 5000km so it's early days, having said that my company car is an E 200K Mercedes and I regularly drive 735i BMWs/ VW Toureg/BMW X5 so am quite a critical customer, I find the Megane has exceeded my expectations in the following areas; 1> Ride, exceptional for a car of this size, 2> Noise levels, wind is minimal. the small diesel, at 118km it's doing less rpm than the Merc!..Many thanks to to the 6 speed gearbox. 3> Equipment, auto headlamps, wipers and doorlocks, very good stereo system, parktronic (not having it on the front is a small minus though), alloys, door lights... That's about all I need! 4> Looks, parked next to Golfs/Audi A3s/ Focus's/307s/ Jap Hatches and even BMW 1 Series... that ass looks good to me! 5> Economy, so far we're averaging 4.8l per 100km (about 60 mpg) mostly M-way commutes at 118kmh (73.3 mph) with a bit of city stuff thrown in. I'm happy! 6> Armrest, cubbyholes and pockets make it a great all-day car. 7> Price, with a 5 year warranty and 3 years/50,000km free servicing it is incomparable. Now the minus points... 1> That Key! it's the most awkward key I've ever had the misfortune of trying to carry, even in the handbook they warn you not to put it in a back pocket as it can be broken when sitting down, in a front pocket it can do series damage, it may be alright if you carry a handbag but for a man in T-Shirt and jeans it's a pain! Mercedes & BMW do it SO much better. 2> Slight Turbo Lag, not enough to be dangerous but a small detraction if not expecting it. 3? Boot Space, not great, but if you really need more you wouldn't buy this car in the first place, we've had 2 large suitcases in it so it's enough for our airport run. 4> The cruise control/speed limiter switch is in the most ridiculous position, just above my right knee, you can't see it and have to fumble to find it as it feels like the dashboard dimmer switch. I'd dealt with Renault for a year previous as we bought a new van from them, they are on the ball regarding getting things done on time, prices are typical main dealer, not cheap but at least they do it right.

Love the car, economy is excelent if you keep the tyre pressure up. Boot a little small but looks are great and comfort is very good. Everybody asks me if its under powered but i dont think it is, it cruises on the motorway at a lovoly 80 mph all day long at 60 mpg. Great eh !
