Interior, dashboard & comfort rating

3.5 out of 5

The Renault Megane E-TECH hybrid is comfortable over bumps and when running on electric power – as it does automatically at low speeds, or all the time if you set it to; it's very relaxed and quiet.

The current Megane looks a little dated inside at this point, especially as models such as the latest Skoda Octavia have made more progress in this area. There’s plenty of space inside at least, and the quality of materials inside isn’t bad. There are some plastics that feel a bit cheap, but most of the touch points are soft and appropriately specified for the car’s price point. That means it’s somewhere between a Renault Clio and a BMW 3 Series in terms of quality.

Equipment, options & accessories

The Megane hybrid is available in Iconic and R.S. Line trim levels, and all models get alloy wheels and LED lights, as well as a touchscreen infotainment system with sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus a seven-inch digital instrument cluster and automatic dual-zone climate control. The more expensive R.S. Line adds sportier styling, bigger wheels, a rear parking camera, a 10-inch drivers’ display and a larger 9.3-inch touchscreen.

Infotainment, apps & sat nav

The portrait-orientated touchscreen looks nice when it’s switched off, and the graphics are okay once the car’s running – if a little dated-looking. Its main problem is how fiddly it is to use, especially while driving; it seems to take multiple taps to get certain functions to work. The digital dial display is similarly average to look at, and while it’s got all the functions you need, it doesn’t look as smart as the set-up in, for example, a Volkswagen or Skoda model.
