This is my second Renault, i moved from a petrol Clio to a diesel Megane 1.9 DCi a year ago and the differences are worlds apart, features, performance, economy and safety the most obvious ones. The car feels so sturdy and substantial, it cruises the motorways superbly and just eats up the miles, leaving you with practically no fatigue whatsoever. No problems with mine in the year that I have owned it and my friends give it the thumbs up too.
I really like the way the 2 door version looks so much more streamlined from the side view, especially in Black.
The one thing I miss is a sunroof, I think since the introduction of AC is now a more common inclusion than previously, Renault seem to have placed less importance on this feature.
