Volkswagen Golf 2017 review
The Golf 7.5, as the name implies, is a substantial mid-life upgrade of the current model. To raise the stakes, and sales (they hope), VW has injected new life into its marquee small-car player.

The Zen marks the entry-point in the 2017 Renault Megane range, representing a higher base trim level than the hatch which starts off with the Life.
The Zen sedan carries a list price of $27,490, but Renault is offering ongoing drive-away pricing of $29,990. This also makes the Zen $6000 cheaper than the Intens sedan that sits at the top of the Megane sedan range.
Key features on the Zen include a 7.0-inch 'R-LINK 2' multimedia screen with sat nav, leather-trimmed steering wheel, dual zone climate control, a reversing camera plus front and rear parking sensors, hands-free boot opening, auto wipers and headlights, a full size temporary spare wheel and 16-inch alloys.
The Zen options list extends to the $1990 'Sunroof Pack' which includes an electric sunroof, auto dimming rear view mirror and illuminated sun visor mirror. Also available is the $700 'ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) Pack', which brings city AEB, lane departure warning and auto high beam. Metallic paint will also cost an extra $600.
Like all Megane sedans, the Zen is powered by the 97kW/205Nm TCe 130 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol four, paired with a seven-speed dual clutch automatic. The official combined fuel consumption figure is 6.1L/100km.
