I've got an 04 (54) 1.9 GS, but just had a loan of an 06 1.5 (106bhp) Megane estate for a few days. To be honest I thought the 1.5 was a superb engine. I couldn't believe how well it pulled. It felt nippier than my Scenic, although the GS is a bigger car. It was also showing an average consumption of 47mpg. When I commented on it to a sales rep, he said he had stopped telling folk before a test drive it was a 1.5 and he just called it the DCI 106 as many were put off before they even tried it by the engine size, insisting they would need a bigger diesel. Most like myself, came back very impressed. Probably well laden it may lack power.
