2010 - 2013

The third generation of the Renault Megane was unveiled in 2008 as a hatchback with three or five-doors. Two years later, the French carmaker introduced the GT line. Renault knew that if it wants to get a big chunk of the market, it had to come with a car priced lower than a German. It also had to make an Italian compact look dull next to it. Maybe the five-door version was not the best-looki...

2002 - 2006

Renault introduced the second generation of its compact-segment contender Megane in 2002, and from the beginning, it offered it in two body shapes: hatchback and coupe.

Instead, it had three doors, a vertical tailgate, and a classic...
