The Renault Megane Hatch test car was the top of the range, Privilege trim, which is one of four levels available, the others being Extreme, Expression and Dynamique.

The Renault Megane Hatch test car was the top of the range, Privilege trim, which is one of four levels available, the others being Extreme, Expression and Dynamique. Each one builds on the previous trim level but they all have the core features of new-generation headrests and 3-point seatbelts for all five seats. The driver's seat is height-adjustable and the steering column is also adjustable for rake and reach. There is storage under the floor, which makes up for the small glovebox, while outside there are Double-optic headlights with 'see-me-home' function and the body-coloured door mirrors are heated

The Renault Megane's Extreme model adds air-conditioning and Expression models also gain a central armrest, electric windows front and rear, lumbar adjustment for the driver and 60:40 split and fold rear seats.

For people who like their creature comforts, the Dynamique is where it starts to become interesting. The RDS/CD audio system comes with Bluetooth and MP3 connections, automatic headlights and wipers, 'Sport' alloys, front foglights, cruise control, a leather-clad steering wheel, height adjustment to the front passenger seat and hands-free entry and start in place of the standard key-card.

On top of this, the Privilege gains dual-zone climate control, folding door mirrors, a rear armrest and rear parking sensors. Satellite navigation is not included in the specification but is available as a £1,600 option.
