Renault's new Megane will be in showrooms here by the end of June - just in time for the anticipated 162-reg buying spree.

While they are remaining tight-lipped on price at this stage, it is fair to speculate that there will be a 'modest' increase on current levels - if only to reflect the technology and equipment on board the new model.

Prices for the current hatchback start at €19,490 (TCe 115bhp) according to Renault Ireland website.

The new car is 25mm lower but with a 28mm longer wheelbase it has more cabin space.

It also has front and rear tracks that are considerably wider - they claim them to be the widest in this small-family class.

It is expected the 1.6-litre dCi (110bhp) version with 6spd manual transmission will be the model most people will be interested in - but you never know.
