On a gloomy autumn day and I decided to write a review about your car in order to help the doubters, of whom I was. It has been 10 months since I bought my «toad». So the first impressions were deceiving and I can «sober» to assess the pros and cons of a car. The car I have from France, operated on the French roads, ate French diesel, Cathal probably French black fat sloppy ass, was bought at a French auction, Tamils on the Ukrainian customs. Why Reno you ask. Three months of choice — I will answer. I tested pheww cloud classmates and set of characteristics came to diesel Renault. It so happened that in the family we have usually 2 cars (well, like my wife or one for city, another for travel), so this was bought precisely for the wife and for the city. For travel I already had my Seat Altea XL 1.6 diesel (gate) (it may also write a review). And, in principle, will compare these two cars. I must say that if I were to buy a car for yourself, I would take the wagon in the maximum configuration and the robot (or whatever they call them), in short to the right hand not work. The test wagon at work has me fall in love with this car and I have nothing to see could not (within its budget), although up to this point the French as the candidates I had not even considered. Wife principally insisted on Heche, as well as a handle or a robot for a wife not a principle, then picked something cheaper. The result — Renault Megane 2014 1.5 diesel with a mileage of 104 thousand km, white hatch on the handle in the most meager of equipment (4 pillows, air conditioning, cruise, front power Windows and no heated seats). It cost me with customs clearance in 9000.e. Competitors for the money of these years with similar characteristics are simply not there. Now actually about cars. The car is for the driver who would not say that about the softness and comfort of this car, but for me it is hard (or knocked down, as you like), it is austere inside and outside is very interesting, it reminds me a flattened toad. But its very important advantage is the 1.5 diesel, or rather its turbine and 6 mortar — it’s something. Compared to the 1.6 turbodiesel voltagesource — she only manages the transmission of tuck. Moreover, she confidently rides already with 1.5 thousand revs and there is almost no turboyamy. Want save — 70 km/h on 6 gear and feast your wallet you provided, the computer will show something about 3 liters per 100 km, a tachometer is about 1400 rpm. But I can’t move, patience is not enough, my cruising on the highway — is officially permitted + 20 km/h, so the average consumption varies between 4.3 to 5L depending on the speed and operation of the air conditioner. My record of saving (although the record was not trying to install was just in fun) — 4.3 l / 100 km, February, Kiev-Odessa. For the city car even more convenient — it is nimble, agile and excellent comes into the turns. Altea than in Reno is imposing a hapless goof. One of the advantages is the fact that the machine is galvanized and does not rot, as the substitution of the threshold with oblostnoy paint survived Ukrainian winter, and did not require attention. What in the car did not like the cramped back seat compared to the Altea is a source of claustrophobia. If you have above-average growth is bound to hit his head when landing on the driver’s seat (again seat down in the maximum down position. Don’t like the blowout of the windshield, with the power everything is OK, but the width of the nozzle, the French have done it (it’s like advertising Eldorado — VIN ACIS little…, no, it’s just cold). The reliability of the meager 8000 km, which dashed in Ukraine, I had planned IT, changed initially a malfunctioning thermostat and threw the broken check valve of the fuel. The rest of the car happy, the machine starts, the machine is going, really going and the machine stands out the budget of the owner. Here such here it turned out love not at first sight.
The pros of the car:the combination of the 1.5 l diesel and 6-pounders, the consumption of diesel fuel, giving delight to drive, fairly reliable.
Cons of the car:Tight, austere on the inside.
Advice to buyer: If the format — 2 adults or 2 adults + 1 child — your format, then this is your car, if you don’t mind «shake» and «Bouncing» the car on the bumps, then this is your car, if your wallet is asking to take pity on him, then this is your car. If I set the condition of the two cars belong to me I need to leave only one, then of course I would leave the seat Altea XL because of the softness, smoothness, comfort and interior volume, but very much missed pronicljivost and «eurocomfort» Reno.
