Renault Megane Sport Tourer 1.5 dCi 106 TomTom Edition

Renault

Review

Our Renault Megane long-termer tells a tale of two technologies that offer very different experiences for the driver.

One adheres to the Renault mantra of ‘different for better’s sake’ and uses cutting-edge hands-free technology to make the Megane a really hassle-free car.

The key is simply replaced with a keycard that you keep in your pocket.

When you walk up to the car and pull the door handle it unlocks and opens.

Climb in and press the ‘stop/start’ button and it works.

Climb out and walk away and it automatically locks.

However, the TomTom system, which sits in a plastic housing out of keeping with the quality of the rest of car, is a step backwards in my view, with none of the touch-screen useability or portability that makes TomToms so useful.

And for some inexplicable reason, the exhaust pipe ends a foot before the back of the car, so when it chuffs out diesel smoke, the fumes seep forward into the air vents. A different approach is needed in future. 

CO2 emissions and fuel consumption data correct at time of writing. The latest figures are available in the Fleet News fuel cost calculator and the company car tax calculator.
