Renault Megane: £199 per month
£199 per month with a £5,423 deposit (0 per cent APR)
The stylish Mégane is well built and blessed with some very efficient engines. Our favourite model is the 108bhp 1.5 dCi diesel, although the 128bhp 1.2 turbo petrol will suit average-mileage drivers and is a lot cheaper. Either way, the Renault isn’t as much fun to drive as an Astra, but it is comfortable. It isn’t as roomy, either; designers focused on boot capacity over passenger space. Our top spec is Dynamique Nav with sat-nav, climate control and rear parking sensors.
