4.0 out of 5

It’s not be the most fun car to drive, but the Renault Megane Sport Tourer is easily one of the most comfortable small family estates you can buy. Generally, interior comfort is as excellent, as is the ride. Wind, road and engine noise are kept to a minimum, which makes the Megane a very relaxing car indeed.

Renault Megane Sport Tourer dashboard

The quality of Renault’s interiors has improved in recent years and although the Megane Sport Tourer isn’t as polished as a Volkswagen Golf estate inside, the dashboard is fashioned from smart, soft-touch materials and feels a lot better than Renault interiors of old. The seats are comfortable, soft and supportive, too. The GT Line model has sports seats that are designed to keep you more firmly in place on twisty roads.

Equipment

The Megane Sport Tourer is well kitted-out as standard: the entry-level Expression+ model comes with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, cruise control, 16-inch alloy wheels, front foglights and air-conditioning.

Mid-level Dynamique Nav comes with TomTom sat nav, automatic lights and wipers, keyless entry and dual-zone climate control and the Limited Nav model adds plush features such as a panoramic sunroof and different alloy wheels and seat upholstery.

The GT Line Nav includes rear parking sensors, 17-inch alloy wheels, an upgraded stereo system and a series of exterior styling features, while the powerful GT 220 has sports seats, carbon detailing, a bodykit and a unique design of alloy wheel.

Options

There aren’t heaps of options available with the Megane Sport Tourer, but the handful of note are the £300 R-Link multimedia system (a seven-inch touch-screen infotainment system with an eco-driving readout and its own app store) and the £170 Smart Pack, which brightens up the interior.

TomTom sat nav is a £110 option on the entry-level Expression+ model, but you’re better off upgrading to one of the higher trim levels, which all include that, along with other equipment, as standard.
