    We have had the Megane diesel for a few days now. Very happy with the package. A few early observations:- The K9K engine is somewhat noisy (compared to our 508 Diesel), but this is acceptable given the $20k price difference and the Pug is 16 valve whereas the Renault is 8 valve. Apparently the 1.5 L engine's fuel consumption has been improved by 25% since 2008 and this Euro 5 engine can meet anticipated Euro 6 clean air rules by replacing the catalyst with a combined catalyst NOx trap. I have read that Renault have sold 9 Million of the 1.5 L engine and the Valladolid plant(Spain) can make 900,000 units a year!

    The Efficient Duel Clutch transmission is smooth and responsive and lives up to the advertisements. Vehicle build is impressive and altogether a very good hatch. First service is 15,000k or 12 months, but given we are doing mainly city driving, I think I will opt for an oil & filter change at 7500k.
