Renault Megane Life hatch 2016 review: snapshot

The Life kicks off the fourth-generation Renault Megane hatch range at a price of $22,490 for the six-speed manual.

The Life kicks off the fourth-generation Renault Megane hatch range at a price of $22,490 for the six-speed manual.

Don’t like changing gears yourself? Well, hand another $2000 to Renault and you’ll be given a Life with the seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.

The Life sits below the $27,490 Zen in a line-up that tops out at $38,490 for the sporty GT.

Renault did not have a Life variant for us to drive at the Australian launch of the Megane hatch, but it’s essentially the same at the Zen, but misses out on that grade’s sat nav, front parking sensors and electronic parking brake.

But what you do get on the Life makes it the best value for money in the range. There’s a seven-inch screen, reversing camera, rear parking sensors, dual zone climate control, an Arkamys eight speaker stereo, auto headlights, rain-sensing wipers and 16-inch alloy wheels.

The Life has a 97kW/205Nm 1.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine which Renault says consumes petrol at an average combined rate of 5.5L/100km with the six-speed manual and 5.6L/100km with the seven speed auto.
