Renault Megane Wagon

Talking further on the upgraded Renault Megane range now including sedan, hatch and wagon. I’ve just driven the Megane GT wagon priced at $39,990 drive-away – drive-away pricing designed to stimulate sales and is working with sales up 16 percent.

This is a real driver’s car on the open road –fun, safe and highly appointed with an advanced driver assistance system with a number of driver safety functions, a sports-tuned suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels.
