The fourth-generation Renault Megane made its debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. It shares the same mid-sized car platform as the 2015 Nissan Pulsar, but unlike its Japanese cousin, the French hatchback is quite exciting to look at thanks to the brand’s new design DNA, which debuted on the Talisman midsize sedan. The new Megane also received a new GT version, which is not as powerful as the RS, but features a sportier body kit and a dual-clutch gearbox. With the entire hatchback lineup already in dealerships, Renault has introduced the Megane Estate at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

Essentially a longer version of the hatch with extra legroom for rear-seat passengers and a bigger trunk, the Megane Estate will look to give wagon versions of the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus a run for their money. With a dynamic, elegant design, fuel-efficient engines, technology usually found in higher segments, and a sporty GT variant, the new Megane Estate is a significant departure from it predecessor. But does it have what it takes to take the iconic Golf Variant down in Europe? Read our review to find out.
