The dials are tilted on a strange angle, and both the button and the stereo controls are all away low down on the dash are also stereo controls behind the steering wheel).

The GT Line TomTom as tested, benefits from input from specialists at Technologies in the area of its specially chassis with lowered along with steering and as well as a Renaultsport-style leather wheel.

Renault Megane Economy and

The Megane’s official economy of 80.7mpg is quite amazing, perhaps predictably, we found it to match this in real-life we could only achieve which is a long way short of the figure. Of course the very low emissions figure means the Megane has just a 13% benefit in tax rate, making it appealing for car drivers – as well as anyone into the London Congestion zone, which would be of charge.
