2017 Renault Megane Wagon : 2016 Geneva Motor Show

Read the article here. The new 2017 Renault Megane wagon has been revealed, following the Frankfurt motor show debut of the new Megane hatch in September 2015. As expected, the 2017 Renault Megane wagon follows in the footsteps of its predecessor by adding roof rails and a more practical load-hauling back-end to the regular hatch model, while retaining a fast look with a tapered roofline – the go-to sports styling trick for most modern wagons...

Renault Clio RS220 Trophy v Renault Megane RS265 Cup - Hillclimb Battle

Read the article here. We put the Renault Clio RS220 Trophy head-to-head against the Renault Megane RS265 Cup, in a lap-time battle around the 1.3-kilometre Haunted Hills hillclimb circuit in Victoria. Teaming a 162kW/260Nm turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder with a dual-clutch automatic transmission and a launch control system, the limited edition Renault Clio RS220 Trophy claims 0-100km/h in 6...

2017 Skoda Octavia RS wagon v Renault Megane GT wagon comparison

Petrolhead parents on a budget are hardly spoilt for choice in today’s showrooms – especially if a hatchback is considered a bit too small and they prefer their driving experience, rather than outward view, to be elevated. In the circa-$40,000 price zone, there are just three members of the sporty compact wagon breed: the Renault Megane GT, Skoda Octavia RS, and Subaru Levorg...

Renault Megane Intens v Mazda 3 SP25 GT v Holden Astra LTZ comparison

Who would have thought there’d be enough action in the small sedan segment of the market to warrant yet another comparison test – our fifth such test since the beginning of 2016? Yet here we are, in a world where the small car is increasingly being seen as a great alternative to the mid-size sedan because, essentially, these new ‘small’ sedans offer better space for your spend than vehicles in the next segment up...

Small hatchback comparison: Holden Astra v Renault Megane v Subaru Impreza

The small car market is one of the busiest segments of the Australian automotive landscape, both in terms of sales and for new product – and 2016 in particular proved to be a big year for the humble hatchback. Sales of small cars may have slowed off a little as people move towards the plethora of small SUV alternatives, but make no mistake: this segment still makes up the single biggest proportion of overall new vehicle sales, and it’s dominated by a couple of big-name models...

Renault Australia has dialled back the ownership program for buyers of its high-performance 'RS' models, with all vehicles purchased from 1 May 2018 now covered for three years, instead of the previous five.

2016 Renault Megane GT-Line Premium review

  After having a company car for the past 30 years, I had to purchase my own car after retirement. I wanted a car that was economical as I had to pay for the fuel myself. The Renault Megane GT-Line 1.5-litre turbo diesel gives me just over 1000km per tank at around 58L to fill. The car has plenty of power and handles well...

2012 Renault Megane Rs 265 Trophy Review

If an engaging, smile-inducing, hard edged hot hatch is your thing, the Renault Sport Megane RS265 has you covered. Around town and as a daily driver, the RS has its drawbacks. The ride is firm with a capital F. Although composed and not crashy, it can be pretty tough commuting on our rugged roads...

2015 Renault Megane GT-line Review

I have had this car for 1 year now and have found it a pleasure to drive. It is the first car in a long time that i want to drive as its responsive engine and superb handling make it a joy to take through some windy hills or even just negotiating suburban streets. The only negative i can find is lack of rear leg room but since it is children going in there it isn't an issue...

2008 Renault Megane Rs F1 Team R26 Review

I purchased my low mileage R26 nearly four years ago. It has been most enjoyable and very reliable. I have not experienced the multiple squeaks and rattles mentioned in your report. At just under 80,000km, the car is still good and tight and looks almost like new! In my time with the R26, apart from road use, I have used it for track events over twenty times in three years...
