Renault Megane Sport Tourer (2003 – 2008) Review

Renault Megane Sport Tourer (2003 – 2008) At A Glance


+Very roomy cargo bay. Quality improvements making the car more reliable. Sporty 220GT launched February 2015.

-Electrical, mechanical and build quality problems can still occur. 220GT slower, less fuel efficient and higher CO2 than Leon ST Cupra.

On average it achieves 93% of the official MPG figure

We have to thank the bravery of BMW and Renault. Just as car styling was becoming samey and safe, along came Chris Bangle and Patrick le Quemant. Their designs have polarised opinion, but at least they got people talking and no one can accuse either of them of building boring Euro boxes.

However, you'll find no bustle bottom poking out of the back of the Renault Megane Sport Tourer. Instead, and unlike the Laguna Sport Tourer, it's squared off as a station wagon should be and offers an impressive 1,600 litres of loadspace.

That makes it quite a big car. At 4,500mm it's longer than the average family hatchback-derived wagon, though not quite as long as a 4,804mm Mondeo estate.
