Renault Megane Review, Colours, For Sale, Interior, Models & News

First released in Australia in May 2001, the Renault Megane is a small French hatchback that has appeared in numerous guises over the years, including a five-door hatch, two-door convertible and three-door coupe.

Now into its fourth generation, the line has been wound back to encompass a handsome four-wheel-drive, and five-door, five-seat hatchback that competes with the likes of the Volkswagen Golf and Peugeot 308. Underpinned by Renault’s flexible CMF platform, the Megane offers a 1.8L turbocharged engine, available in manual or automatic.

Current prices range from $53,990 to $56,990 for the Megane RS Trophy 300 and Megane RS Trophy.

Renault Megane Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Renault Megane here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Renault Megane RS Cup 280 2019: Warranty issues

    I wouldn’t have even started talking to them about fixing it; I would have walked away and refused to take delivery of the car. But having started negotiating with them about a fix they have recommended the touch-up guy, that’s then their responsibility and you have the choice of accepting the work done or rejecting it. By going to another panel shop you are taking responsibility for the repair and I’m not surprised that Renault would refuse any warranty on the panel and paint thereafter. Have them do the repairs, don’t get involved yourself; you are only muddying the waters.

  • Renault Megane 2015: Warranty on DPF unit block

    I understand your frustration; I also agree that diesel buyers should be made aware of the possible consequences resulting from the way they will use the car. Blocking of the DPF because of being used on short, low speed trips is quite common across most brands, so it could be argued that you should have done you homework and known that. As to whether you have good grounds for a refund I can’t say, but I suspect you could request a refund, or part refund, as a gesture of good will from Renault.

  • Which hatchback should I buy?

    The best times to buy are usually the end of the financial year, or at model run-out times, that's when the specials are on. The CVT and dual-clutch autos are both still unknowns in terms of long-term reliability, but either should be ok over the five years you plan to keep the car. Any of the cars you list, and the list is a long one, would be ok. It really comes down to what you like.

  • Has my dealer cheated me?

    Do you have the original papers you signed when you bought the car, they should show the odometer at the time you took over the car. That would be your starting point.

    When you take it in for service ask them why there should be a discrepancy.

Renault Megane Interior

One of the standout elements of the Renault Megane's interior is its dashboard, because it has a portrait style media screen that is unconventional and eye-catching. It's not that easy to use, though, and there are other ergonomic quirks - see if you can pick any of them from these images. Luxury models have nice leather trim, though now the range has been simplified to just the sporty variants. 

Shown above are interior details for the Renault Megane 2020.
