The facelifted Renault Megane will cost from £16,275 when it goes on sale in April. Top-spec Sport Tourer variants are priced from £22,490.

Three new engines make it to the Megane range and include a 1.2 TCe 115 petrol, 1.5 dCi 110 and the 1.6 dCi 130. Each unit is fitted with stop-start as standard.

The 1.2-litre unit achieves a claimed 53.3mpg and 119g/km CO2, while the diesels achieve 80.7mpg with 90g/km CO2 and 70.6 mpg and 104g/km CO2 emissions respectively. The 1.4 TCe 130 and 2.0 TCe 180 engines are no longer available to order.

External revisions to the fresher-faced Megane include styling tweaks to the front bumper and the addition of LED daytime running lights on Dynamique TomTom models upwards. The Megane’s alloy wheel line-up is also revised.

Inside the car’s cabin, changes include new interior trims - including a leather pack which comes in a choice of two finishes – and GT-Line TomTom models get red stitching, a sports steering wheel and Renaultsport badges on the door sills and dashboard trim as standard.

Renault has also introduced a new New entry-level Expression+ trim level, which gets Bluetooth, USB, and an upgraded stereo system on top of the Expression’s standard kit of 16-inch alloys, air conditioning and front fog lights.

Re: Facelifted Megane from £16,275

I do worry where the brand is going, in the early days we sold bucket loads but now new car sales is hard work.....There is nothing wrong with the cars, they are reliable, well built, have great engines, cheap to run however there is nothing stand out about them, in the not too distant past they we're bought on their styling and quirkiness but they don't have that now....Residuals are shocking but that is because dealers have been able to get away with heavy discounting and using dodgy fleet terms to do even heavier discounting....Renault have dropped the very basic price point models as they just didn't make the company any money, they have done a good thing cutting down on model variants, I mean do you really need 9 versions of Astra?...it'll be interesting to see how electric does, I can't see it taking off over here significantly though, however I have been told electric has to work...It's going to be an interesting year.

Renault are trying to scratch their heads as to why their sales are down? Look at the prices guys.

RS version excepted, the whole Megane range is distinctly average, be that on build, design, performance or general desirability. There is nothing wrong with it but in reality there is nothing that makes you want to choose a Megane over it's rivals.

With the market the way it is (so called budget Korean brands on the up, "Premium" products taking preference over the traditionally popular mid ground) there no room for a weak vehicle and brand - and that is what Renault appears to be at the moment - with stiff pricing.

Long live Dacia.
