New Renault Mégane receives best-in-class SMR figures
Cap hpi has awarded the all-new Renault Mégane best-in-class service, maintenance and repair (SMR) costs.
Available to order now, the fourth generation model also sees the largest ever RV uplift awarded by cap to a C-segment vehicle and substantial reductions in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) costs.
The SMR ratings from cap hpi cover both diesel and petrol models and find all variants have the lowest servicing, tyres, brakes and other maintenance costs compared to its main rivals.
The Mégane Dynamique Nav dCi 110 – the predicted best-seller – has an SMR cost of £1,291 over 36 months / 60,000 miles according to the cap hpi Derwent SMR Cost Analysis May 2016 – up 8% on the previous generation Mégane and 3.4% better than its nearest competitor.
The new Mégane also benefits from a dramatic improvement in terms of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to its predecessor, rising five places in its competitive category, from seventh to second in class. A reduction of £1,975 (10.5%) over 36 months / 60,000 miles has resulted in a TCO figure of £18,755 for the dCi 110 Dynamique Nav version.
Meanwhile the Dynamique Nav TCe 130 sees a £2,404 reduction (11.6%) to £20,656 over 36 months / 60,000 miles.
In addition, the new Mégane, in the most popular Dynamique Nav dCi 110 trim, sees an RV uplift of eight percentage points over the outgoing generation – the largest RV uplift ever awarded by cap hpi to a replacement model in the family car segment.
Jeff Knight, forecasting editor, cap hpi, commented: “Renault with the All-New Mégane have not only created a convincing fleet offering in terms of Total Cost of Ownership, they have underpinned this with a striking design and equipment levels that will surely attract the future used buyer.”
Mark Dickens, head of fleet sales operations & vehicle remarketing, Renault UK, added: “The all-new Mégane is clearly a compelling business proposition to both corporate and user chooser customers. Following on from all-new Kadjar, it’s the next exciting chapter in our C-segment rejuvenation, backed up by our professional Pro+ dealer network and the industry leading Renault Business Quality Commitment.”
