Re: Megane Coupe 1.6

Based purely on looks then he won't go far wrong with the Megane. It is one of the nicest 3 doors on the market and gets good reviews and some evenrate it better than the VW scirrocco. The new Megane is much better built than the older ones with very few issues reported under warranty.

If your Dad wants out and out performance then the 1.6petrol engine is not the one to have, he needs a 2.0 petrol or the 2.0dci 170bhp is a very good engine.
However if he wants a combination of reasonable acceleration and fairly low running costs then the 1.6 petrol will be fine.

If he wants something with a bit of punch and can't afford one brand new then he could probably get a good deal on a nearly new one.
