Renault Mégane RS (2017-2022) review – interior and tech
Not the Mégane’s strongest element, but it’s no deal breaker
While Renault’s general seating positions have gotten much better over the years, the Mégane still requires some acclimatisation when you hop in, especially given the oddly tall dashboard.
There was an attempt by Renault to make the interior feel more high-end than previous versions when this fourth-gen Mégane arrived in 2016. And, to an extent it succeeded, although the landmark shift in interior car design since the wider adoption of digitisation does make it now feel older than it is.
There’s an array of soft, padded materials across the interior, but the rough edges, sharp cuts and moulding marks of some of the plastics and the occasional wobble of a button undermines the effect. The seats are great though, whether you’re in the standard chairs or the adjustable Recaro buckets of the Trophy.
