Car reviews - Renault - Megane - Privilege 5-dr hatch
Stylish, spacious and good value but the ride lets it down. Worth a look.

HATCH buyers – do not automatically buy that Hyundai i30/Toyota Corolla/Ford Focus/Mazda3/Subaru Impreza/VW Golf without scoping out the new Renault Megane hatch first.
Priced from an astonishingly low $22,990, the Turkish-built French five-door blends reliable Nissan engineering and fresh European design in an inexpensive and feature-packed small car package.
Blemishes are few – a rowdy ride being the most disappointing – but its virtues are many, meaning that the latest Megane deserves due consideration. In no way is it an overall class leader, but you could do worse.

RENAULT’S first C-segment hatch in Oz since the demise of the bland R19 in the mid-‘90s was as perhaps the boldest car of its type on sale, with striking styling and class-leading safety – especially when stability control joined the facelifted Series II from June 2006.
