Renault Megane history

There have been five different versions of the Renault Megane launched over the years, here are all of them:

  • Version 1. Initially, it was offered as everything from a hatchback, sedan, four-door sedan, convertible and three-door coupe. The three-door coupé was successful in rally competition in the 1990s. An MPV version, called Scenic, was also launched. It later became a model in its own right. It also offered three different petrol engines ranging from 1.4 to 2 litres, as well as three diesel engines of 1.5 and 1.9 and 2 litres. A few years later, in 1999, an updated version was launched. It also introduced a combi version called the Grand Tour.
  • Version 2. In 2002, the second version was launched and attracted a lot of attention, much because of its design resemblance to the Renault Avantime. This version was available as a hatchback with three or five doors, but also as a sedan and convertible. In 2005, the version was updated, mainly in terms of interior design.
  • Version 3. In 2008, another version was launched and by 2014, the front had changed. This was so that the car would fit in better with the rest of Renault’s car models.
  • Version 4. In 2015, an all-new version was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show and the car went on sale in 2016.

Are there problems with Renault Megane?

Despite being one of the best-selling car models in Europe, the Renault Megane has not been free of problems over the years. For example, some drivers may find the steering insensitive. The key card with start button has also been said to be a feature that has taken some getting used to. Something that has also received criticism over the years is that it has had a strange shape in the back, which has meant that the interior space has not been as large as that of competitors’ cars in the same class.
