A friend discovered a brilliant feature in our Renault Megane Scenic the other day.
I had left my phone in the Renault, where I had automatically linked it to the car using Bluetooth. It was a very easy process to link the car and phone, unlike test cars from some other manufacturers I have driven.
When my friend rang the phone, my traditional answerphone message had been replaced with a different message automatically.
It said: “The person you are calling is currently driving. Please wait.”
The driver has the option to answer the phone, but at least the caller knows that they may be distracting the driver, so they can make a decision whether to call back later. Genius.
This very clever feature was fitted to our car as part of the BOSE pack, which included a single CD player with Bluetooth connectivity and a BOSE sound system with 9 speakers and a digital amplifier.
Other features which came as part of the £1,500 pack were 17-inch ‘Black Schuss’ alloy wheels, automatic dual zone climate control, electric, heated and folding door mirrors , parking sensors front and read and a sliding centre console and storage unit.
