Renault Megane

Overall rating: 78.19%

It’s bad news for Renault to have two cars in the bottom 10 of our Satisfaction Index and it’s worse still when one of them is the Megane, a mainstay of the French firm’s range. Owners ranked it poorly for performance and handling.

More telling still was the low score for reliability that give it the second worst result in this bottom 10, just ahead of the Peugeot 407. Practicality and ease of driving were bright spots for the Renault, but it gained another black mark for its below par fuel economy.
