Renault Megane GT 220 v Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV : Comparison review

Think of relatively affordable five-door hot-hatches and your mind probably strays first to the benchmark Volkswagen Golf GTI, then broadens out to consider the Ford Focus ST. But unless you’re a particularly died-in-the-wool fan of either of the following brands, or in one case accept a three-door bodystyle, your initial thought probably doesn’t wear Renault Megane or Alfa Romeo Giulietta badges...

Mazda 3 SP25 v Renault Megane GT-Line : Comparison review

Getting warmer… warmer… warmer. Perfect. Not everybody wants a hot hatch. But at the same time, a run-of-the-mill small car that ticks all the practical boxes but lacks a little zing doesn’t do it for some either. Luckily there are a host of small hatchbacks that straddle between these two markets, offering a few cheap thrills without going overboard...

2014 Renault Megane : Facelifted model manages just three stars in latest Euro NCAP crash testing

The facelifted 2014 Renault Megane small hatchback has scored just three stars in the latest round of Euro NCAP crash testing. The new-look Renault Megane - which launches in Australia in a matter of weeks - managed only three stars in the scoring due to a number of factors, including "predominantly poor" pedestrian head protection and a rear seatbelt reminder system that - while fitted as standard - tells the driver using text that is not available in all languages...

Hot-hatches these days are priced anywhere from the $26,000 to nearly $75,000, from the tiny terror city cars to the new breed of premium-branded European mega-hatches. In between those two price points there’s a lot of space to be occupied, and there’s an emerging class of warm-to-hot-hatches that aim to offer more balanced abilities than their three-chilli compatriots...

Rewind two decades and the Subaru WRX was the affordable performance king, its launch immaculately timed with the rise of Playstation rally games and the temporary demise of hot-hatches. By the end of the 1990s the Peugeot 306 GTi had died, while the Volkswagen Golf GTI had become a softie. Not long into the new millenium, though, a hot-hatch reprise was led by a reborn Golf GTI, and the tables turned...

Renault Megane RS: next-gen manual still uncertain; EV a possibility

Comments made in March by Renault Sport Technologies CEO Patrice Ratti suggested the next-generation Renault Megane RS – expected in 2017 – could follow the path of the all-new fourth-generation Clio RS200 (pictured below) in being exclusively offered with an automatic transmission...
