The first thing I examined was the front of the car. In vain - if the Fluence was strongly changed by the face, then they did not begin to touch the appearance of Megan. Maybe that's right, because he still looks pretty good. The interior also looks relevant, the most striking detail of which is the digital instrument panel (for some reason, only the tachometer is gauge). The only change here is the R-Link multimedia system, which is offered to buyers of rich versions for 25, 000 rubles. All controls are displayed on a 7-inch touch screen. True, for me, it is located far away, I have to stretch. The menu is logical, there is no confusion. Fans of gadgets will enjoy the USB, AUX and SD. There is also a “bluetooth”, and most importantly, a TomTom navigator. And here, on Polish roads, he shows traffic jams and offers detour routes. It is a pity that in Russia this nice feature does not work.

I was surprised that Renault did not get rid of some interior flaws. So, seat belts are still not adjustable in height. The salon mirror is too close to the eyes and obscures the view. The main complaint is to the seats: the pillow is too short and the back is excessively wide. And there is not enough lateral support. In addition, you sit high, and slippery artificial leather does not add comfort.

Technology news - only from the engine compartment. The car received a more modern power unit: a 1.6-liter 114-horsepower engine with a CVT from Nissan, which is much more advantageous than the previous combination (106 hp and a 4-band automatic). The new engine is 24 kg lighter than its predecessor, more economical, it has less friction loss. It is not surprising that the Megan of the 2013 model year accelerates more fun - there is no trace left of the former melancholy. In general, until you get a hundred, the car performs well, especially if you do not imagine Schumacher and do not strain about howling the motor at high speeds.

But when I went to the toll highway between Krakow and Wroclaw, where the left lane flies 140–150 km / h, I immediately realized: Megan is not particularly comfortable at this speed. Noisy, and the stock of dynamics is no longer there. However, for Russians (formally - for everyone!) Such speeds are still prohibited. But there are no complaints about controllability, and the smoothness of the ride is absolutely remarkable - on the broken secondary tracks, the Renault is sailing with Mercedes imposingness.
No doubt, after the modernization, Megan became better, but it can hardly claim the role of a dream car. Salon and trunk are not the most spacious, there are flaws in ergonomics. And where is the adaptive cruise control, self-parking, steering wheel heating, headlights, lane keeping assistant and so on? All of this equipment is likely to appear at the future Megan, whose release does not have much time left. And the current one with its mini-modernization has only reached the average level of classmates.
