This month sees us focus on the stylish Renault Mégane. The hatchback has established itself as a mainstay in the hatchback market alongside the likes of Volkswagen, Vauxhall and Ford, with this model now into its third generation, which we are focusing on here.
The Mégane originally debuted in 1996, has undergone some eye-catching transformations through the years. The second generation was made famous for its protruding rear end, which will be forever remembered for its catchy TV adverts. The second generation also gained infamy for being unreliable, which the current generation seems to have overcome.
The vehicle we are examining was launched with a range of powerplants, which included 1.2-, 1.4-, 1.6-, or 2.0-litre petrol engines and 1.5-, 1.6-, 1.9- and 2.0-litre diesel options. This variety of engines and the addition of new technology has provided a number of challenges.
Next month we’ll be looking at the fourth generation Mercedes E-Class, so if you have any insights to share, we would be delighted to hear from you. To get your advice included contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
