Overview

What is it?

The all-new, fourth-generation Renault Megane. And what a classy looking thing it is, too. Based on the same platform as the larger Espace and Talisman – big cars we don’t get in the UK – it benefits from all of their tech and much of their style. It’s certainly a great leap on from the current car.

There’ll only be five-door hatch and estate versions, with the coupes and cabrios of old dropped, as their target buyers have all moved to crossovers (such as the Renault Kadjar).
