The Mégane Hatch is an excellent all-rounder; its five-door shape makes it compact enough for easy manoeuvrability in the city, whilst it is also roomy and full of helpful driver-convenience technology. Powering the model is your choice of refined engines that deliver both eager performance and impressively low fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
The Mégane Hatch is nearly indistinguishable from its elegant coupé sibling when viewed from the front. The double optic headlamps sweep back over the wheel arches and flank Renault's large diamond badge. The biggest discernible difference is the extra pair of doors at the rear which offer convenient access to the back of the cabin. Completing the exterior attraction are alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights and front fog lamps - all as standard.
The entry-level Expression+ includes classy satin chrome instrument surrounds, chrome door handles and dark grey cloth upholstery. Perforated leather upholstery and aluminium pedals feature in the GT Line Nav if you prefer a sportier theme. Practicality hasn't been overlooked here as the 60:40 split folding rear bench proves. It enables you to fold all or some of the seats flat to increase the boot's capacity to as much as 1,162 litres.
The cabin is also where you have straightforward control of the Mégane's in-car technology. For entertainment there is a radio with USB and Aux connection which enable you to play music from an external device. The same system boasts a Bluetooth interface that you can link your smartphone to and receive calls hands-free. Just one trim grade above entry-level is Dynamique Nav+ and its TomTom satellite navigation system. Renault's R-Link multimedia system and accompanying seven-inch touchscreen is accessed when you step up to the Mégane GT Line Nav.
The Mégane Hatch delivers an exciting drive as its sporty looks suggest, and leading this thrill is your choice of petrol or diesel engine. The quickest is a 220hp petrol with 340Nm of torque which rushes from 0-62mph in 7.6 seconds. High fuel economy is a priority for many motorists today and the Mégane caters for them too. The 110hp dCi diesel incorporates Renault's Eco technology which helps it to return up to 78.5mpg combined. Just 93g/km of CO2 is released by the unit to make it exempt from road tax charges.
When you are out on the road you can enjoy peace of mind that the hatchback has been designed with safety firmly in mind. Anti-whiplash headrests, front, side and curtain airbags and ISOFIX child seat anchorages protect all occupants if a collision were to occur. Preventing them is intelligent active technology such as Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Hill Start Assist (HAS), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and traction control.
