Young driver: Clio 2 or Megane 2?

Hello everyone!

First of I'd like to thank you all for viewing my topic and helping me decide what should I do.


I'm a young driver ( got my licence 1 year ago) and I'd like to buy a car so I can start doing part time delivery (4-5 hours) to support myself during uni.


Should I get a Renault Clio second generation hatchback 1.2 , 1.5 petrol or should I get a Megane hatchback second generation 1.4 or w/e engine size instead? This is a really big deal for me and I'm looking for reliability (as this will be a part time delivery car) and a good mpg. Thanks!

Try and get some realistic figures on what the running costs per week will be as regards
insurance for each, you will need to get different insurance, your normal car insurance will not cover you for delivering.
Mention this in case you did not know,if you hit someone, when delivering, and only have normal insurance, you will get a very nasty surprise .

I think, aesthetically, car design is so interesting - the dashboards, the steering wheels, and the beauty of the mechanics. I don't know how any of it works, I don't want to know,

As said above you need to work out running costs needs to have business use or as said above you could get a shock also if plod stops you with a stack of pizzas in the back without class 1 business use you can watch them tow the car away

Re: Young driver: Clio 2 or Megane 2?

they are both french so reliability will be the same, and mpg will be down to how you drive it. I went for a Clio over the Megane, because i like smaller cars
