New model available with £3000 off the list price for cash buyers

Renault has launched a new cut-price Megane, costing from £10,995.

The Renault Megane Generation replaces the Extreme model in the range and is available with either a 1.6 petrol or a 1.5 diesel engine, both driving through five-speed manual gearboxes.

The £10,995 list price for the petrol model is only available to cash buyers until the end of September; the Generation costs from £13,9995 outside the offer. The diesel model costs from £15,775 and both petrol and diesel models are £860 cheaper than their predecessors.

Standard equipment includes a CD player with auxiliary input, air conditioning, cruise control, ESC, ABS and electric front mirrors and windows.

Our Verdict

Renault Megane
It's hard to make a case for any of the non-sporting Megane range

The Renault Megane looks bland, and it's not that good to drive either

great price for that size of car, £10,995 will put the ford focus to shame...

cheapest bog standard focus, £18,335.

You get a lot more car for your money with the Fraud Bogus! I'm sure they could strip it back to the 10k mark, but it would be a horrible shoddily-built POS - just like this Megane will be. In fact, just like all Meganes are.

Outstanding price especially given its still got a good engine and decent equipment levels. Don't think I've ever seen a big manufacturer offer a new small family car this cheap in recent years.

Usually your posts are intelligent, this however breaks that trend.

The Ford Focus is not £7,340worth better built, and infact (and I know it's different class of car) the Clio I drove in Spain was better in many ways than the Fiesta that my dad hired in Spain. The Dci engine in the Clio was both economical and quick, whereas the diesel in the Fiesta was sluggish. The interior was a more pleasing place to be too. Have you driven a Renault, or can't you bear to accept that there are cars out there without BMW badges that are actually quite good?

We must aplaud Renault for pricing a car of this size like they were priced back in the late 90s.

Guess there won't be much chance of a dealer discount as well...

Rover has never driven the new megane, he's probably never even been near one. If he had he'd know how much value there was in one at £11k

If he had he'd know that if anything it's a more refined car than the focus - my £20k!!!! tdci co car and previous 1.6tdci hire car focus rattled from day one, value for money eh?

Remember SEAT sold the first generation Leon with a 1.4 engine and base spec for £9995 for virtually the entire model cycle? That was an absolute bargain back then, this Megane is a cracking deal, if you have the cash.

which is good as there will be no con artist profiteering from dealers. who judge their victim as they walk in.

Good to see so much support for the Megane. Brilliant price, it's even cheaper than Top Gear's Reasonably Priced Car, which they stated at the start of the series costs £14,000! This Megane is well equipped, actually looks good (looking better as it gets older I think), and that price is just mind-boggling. Air con, ESP, cruise control... absolutely packed! And 'poorly' built? I don't think so. The Focus is looking old and horrifically overpriced by comparison, it has to be said.

Yes and no.

£10,995 is the deal price, and the dealers have probably had to sacrifice most of their margin along with Renault themselves to hit the advertised price.
