Renault's Entry-Level 3 Door Megane Sport Hatch is titled Extreme and never was a car more appropriately badged. The latest generation Megane II is braver still when compared with the model that first wowed the crowds. The more observant members of the public will notice the elongated, sleeker headlamps and modifications to the grille which see everything come together in a V shape either side of a more prominent Renault badge at the front.
At the rear there are benefits from its own re-sculpted bumper and revised light clusters while inside the instrument binnacle features chrome-ringed dials with white background lighting. You get alloy wheels, ant-submarining airbag for the front seats andfront electric windows. Built at Renaults high-tech Palencia plant in Spain and no matter how striking you may find the exterior styling, one of the biggest surprises will come whenyou drop into the drivers seat of the Megane Sport Hatch.
The designers have been busying creating something which is neat without being gratuitously radical, but the real revelation is the great strides forward made in terms of quality of materials and finish.Imagine for a momentthata Renault designers companycar was rear-ended and he got an Audi courtesy car for the week. Soft feel plastics, quality fabrics and a cohesive design philosophy means a not before time farewell to old-school Renault interiors, Genuine innovation is in evidence.
Just take a look at Renaults anti-submarining airbag, a device which leaps forth from the seat cushion to protect the pelvis. This replaces the traditional hump at the front of the seat and is a neat solution that provides both comfort and unparalleled safety, effectively making it impossible to slide beneath the seatbelt in the event of an accident. Renault has lead in the MPV market and this shines through, not only in terms of passenger space - which is excellent - but also in the provision of cubbies, boxes and pockets.
Theres a hatch in the floor to stow valuables, storage boxes between both front and rear seats and even a chilled glove compartment. The metallic hoop handbrake is a neat touch. Like the Laguna II, the Megane features a card rather than the traditional key.
