    they have to be kidding us, it's ridicolous, I'd have to be bazillionare to spend that kind of money on a Megane, the Clio is another story but I don't see this Megane doing better than a Golf, an A3, WRX and such yet it costs twice!

    :nono: Renault, what happened there?

    I'm ready to bet MY LEFT NUT that the cheaper ClioV6 can beat this Megane in every category...it's nuts.

    :werd: from the looks of that car, I'd expect it to be $30k fully loaded

    no way would it sell here for that price...

    it's the new rear end they have been using for the last 3 years, it maximises the interior space while lowering Cx + it has a very short "boot lid" that doesn't create sounds like in typical hatches...:cool:

    not this one, 100% it won't.

    Maybe the regular Megane can come as a beefier Sentra or something, HISXLNC knows better...:)

    well, they are using only top quality materials and equipments ( the getrag tranny says a lot ) but honestly, I don't see where did the 53k go...and the production numbers are quite high for a model like this one, over 5k cars per year...:ugh:

    It's a unique design (not my cup of tea) and sounds like a decent powerplant, but for 53K I could get one hell of a car (or a few cars)

    I can't add a poll...weird I was able to do that...whatever.

    If it were reasonably priced (28-32k) would you buy one?

    This car got basically everything new, it only shares a few parts with the regular Megane, it's even built in Spain, the whole suspension setup was tuned for the best performance and it went thru a weight reduction plan ( like ditching the panoramic roof )....it's a nice car, expensive, but nice.
