The new Renault Megane is a stylish family hatchback that builds on Renault’s renewed ‘va va voom’ for building desirable and affordable cars. With a practical interior and plenty of tech, it’s a great choice for those looking for a classy small car without the premium price tag.
There’s a wide choice of colours for buyers to choose from, so our guide will help you pick which shade you want. If you want to learn the difference between solid, metallic and special paint finishes, our car paint types guide explains all you need to know.
Glacier WHITE – £0
Glacier White is the sole no-cost option for the Megane and, considering white is a popular shade, we’d expect to see lots of Meganes like this on the road. It shows off the Renault’s sharp lines, but the lack of a metallic flake means it doesn’t look quite as special as optional colours further down. It’ll be easy to sell to the used market but plenty of visits to the car wash will be needed over its life.
Mercury – £525
A light silver such as this is always a safe choice for a new car, and this metallic shade will ensure easy resale to the used market. It’s not the most inspiring of colours and it’ll be tricky to keep clean but, as an all round shade, it’s thoroughly inoffensive.
Titanium – £525
Dark grey is an ever-popular colour for new cars, and it gives the Megane a premium appearance that’s enhanced by the smart LED lights and bold Renault badge. Being dark, it’ll hide road grime for a good while before needing a clean and used buyers will be happy to take this hue off your hands.
Cosmos Blue – £525 (not available on GT-Line naV OR gt naV)
Cosmos Blue is a rich shade that looks upmarket. It should be fairly easy to keep clean compared to lighter colours and will attract used buyers looking for something other than the normal blacks and greys. It isn’t available on sportier GT-Line Nav and GT Nav cars.
Dune – £525 (NOT AVAILABLE ON GT-LINE NAV OR GT NAV)
Dune, as its name suggests, is a sandy shade somewhere between gold and silver. It should hide dirt for a long time before needing a clean but used buyers might not snap this shade up as readily as more conventional colours. Like Cosmos Blue, Dune isn’t available on the top two trim levels.
Diamond Black – £525
Black is always a popular choice with both new and used buyers so you probably won’t struggle selling this colour on. Unlike most darker shades, black is a pain to keep clean and cheaper car washes can leave swirl marks so don’t cut corners.
Steel Blue – £525
Steel Blue is paler than the other blues available with more of a silver hue. Its lightness means it’ll take more cleaning than a darker colour but used buyers are unlikely to be put off by this shade.
Flame Red – £625
Flame Red will help your Megane stand out. Being a pretty extrovert colour, it might be marginally harder to sell than more conventional ones and a fairly frequent cleaning schedule is recommended for best results. It’s slightly more expensive than other metallic shades but, if you want a red Megane, it’s your only option.
Arctic White – £625
Renault offers two different whites for the Megane and, while most buyers will probably end up choosing the solid shade, this special shade offers a richer finish thanks to microscopic flakes in the paintwork. Like all whites, used buyers will be quick to snap this colour up provided you clean it frequently.
Iron Blue – £625 (only on GT-Line Nav and GT Nav)
Iron Blue is only available on the two most expensive trim levels. It’s an eye-catching colour that suits the Megane’s sharp shape and lends it a sporting air. Used buyers are likely to be tempted by this hue and it’ll do a middling job at hiding road grime.
