Prices for the new Renault Megane hatch have been announced
25 September 2008

Renault has confirmed UK pricing for the new Megane hatch ahead of its launch later this year. The entry level 1.6-litre petrol 3dr Expression will cost £13,995 and at the other end of the range the 1.9 dCi 130 Privilege 5dr is £18,795 – although forthcoming RenaultSport versions will top that.

The new Megane is more expensive than the outgoing model, although it also boasts more standard spec, but it remains competitively priced against rivals like the Ford Focus 1.6 Style (£14,495).

All versions get aircon, six airbags and four electric windows. Dynamic spec adds alloy wheels, automatic lights and wipers and Bluetooth connectivity, while the range-topping Privilege gets dual-zone climate control and parking sensors.

The Megane can be ordered from 2 October with the first cars delivered in late November. A Megane coupe will join the range next January.

Our Verdict

Renault Megane

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

    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
