Well, I just love the simplicity of this one, and I think it is much better if it is on a sleek super blue body paint. smiley Anyway, it has already looked so classy on that even on its interior.

yes, the engine is obsolescent, and the F series being replaced by a newer M series shared with Nissan; however, the cast-iron closed-deck F block is much stronger (it was long used as a 1.9 diesel block) thus more suitable for turbocharging than the alloy open-deck M4R.

Its specs look very similar to MS3 but costs 10k more? It just wouldn’t sell very well IMO.

Nissan- wake up and tap into some Renault stuff for the USA.

There are some parts of these car that is not astounding but the capabilities of its engine is on top of it all.

Megane CC going against the A5 convertible? Really Autoblog? A5 is much more expensive than Renault and those two will never be cross-shopped. True Competition to Megane are Eos and 308 CC. There used to be Opel Astra CC in previous generation, too

The exterior is not too impressive but not that ugly it’s actually not that unique but the engines is good.

Average I say. Not too good looking and not too eye soaring. I’ve seen similar hatchback like the 2010 Renault Megane and Clio ’XV de France’ have.

quite good, simple yet sporty looking vehicle. and nothing so special about this car but i really love the looks and body trim design of this baby.

Design-wise, this car is nothing. It doesn’t look luxurious, fast or anything. But if you go down to the core of the details, you will find out that this is no ordinary car.

The Renault Megane seems to pullout great sales on the market especially the coupe but I don’t think it will be that good now that some of the cars that are launching are really up ahead. On this year, I’m waiting for the new Nissan 370Z coupe that really bombs all the coupes this year.

These hot hatches are now going to be more about putting all that power down on to the road. This could easily post a similar 0-100kmh time to the Focus RS I think.
