All-new Renault Mégane receives best-in-class running cost figures

The all-new Renault Mégane has received best-in-class service, maintenance and repair (SMR) figures at launch, according to data provided by Cap HPI. 

The fourth generation of Renault’s popular family car also sees the largest ever RV uplift awarded by Cap HPI to a C-segment vehicle and substantial reductions in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) costs.

Whether in diesel or petrol, the All-New Mégane has been judged by Cap HPI to have the lowest servicing, tyres, brakes and other maintenance costs compared to its main rivals. 

The Mégane Dynamique Nav dCi 110 – the predicted best-seller – has an SMR cost of £1,291 over 36 month/60,000 miles according to the Cap HPI Derwent SMR Cost Analysis May 2016. This is an 8% improvement over the previous generation Mégane and 3.4% better than its nearest competitor.

In Dynamique Nav TCe 130 guise, the All-New Mégane has a best-in-class SMR cost of £1,354. 

The All-New Renault Mégane also benefits from an improvement in terms of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to the third generation model it replaces, rising five places in its competitive category, from seventh to second in class.  

A significant reduction of £1,975 (10.5%) over 36 months / 60,000 miles has resulted in a TCO figure of £18,755 for the dCi 110 Dynamique Nav version. The Dynamique Nav TCe 130 also sees a substantial reduction in its TCO figure with a £2,404 reduction (11.6%) to £20,656 over 36 months/60,000 miles. TCO takes into account depreciation, fuel and SMR costs. 

The All-New Mégane, in the most popular Dynamique Nav dCi 110 trim, sees a RV uplift of eight percentage points over the outgoing generation – the largest RV uplift ever awarded by Cap HPI to a replacement model in the family car segment.

Mark Dickens, head of fleet sales operations and vehicle remarketing at Renault UK, said: “The all-New Mégane is clearly a compelling business proposition to both corporate and user chooser customers.

“Following on from all-new Kadjar, it’s the next exciting chapter in our C-segment rejuvenation, backed up by our professional Pro+ dealer network and the industry leading Renault Business Quality Commitment”.

Jeff Knight, Forecasting Editor, Cap HPI, said: “Renault with the all-new Mégane have not only created a convincing fleet offering in terms of Total Cost of Ownership, they have underpinned this with a striking design and equipment levels that will surely attract the future used buyer.”
