The Renault Megane E-TECH hybrid has the potential for extremely low running costs, as long as you’re able to charge up at home. A diesel Megane is more efficient on the motorway, but if you have a short commute or spend lots of time around town, then the plug-in model is superior.

Renault Megane Sport Tourer hybrid insurance group

The Megane E-TECH sits in insurance group 22, as it’s one of the more expensive models in the range and performance is reasonable, as 0-62mph takes just under 10 seconds.

Warranty

All Renault cars get a five-year/100,000-mile warranty, which is above average. Many other brands only offer three years of cover, so it’s good to see that Renault is confident in its cars’ reliability past a typical ownership period.

Servicing

The service intervals for the Megane E-TECH are the same as for all other models in the line-up: every year or 18,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Road tax

As the Megane is a hybrid and didn't cost more than £40,000 new, it costs £155 a year to tax.
