Megane-R26Renault Megane R26

IN THE segment of executive people carriers, the mother of all MPVs (multi-purpose vehicle), namely the Renault Grand Espace is a difficult proposition to beat.

The Grand Espace is proof that Renault is the class leader when it comes to ferrying people.

Seven individual seats, each with its own seatbelts and airbags, as well as a huge glass area for that luxury look and a super smooth ride almost sum up what the Grand Espace has to offer.

It also stands out on our roads, which are filled with reconditioned Japanese MPVs. Its five-star Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Programme) safety rating shows that Renault takes vehicle occupant safety seriously.

Meanwhile, the Renault Megane Coupe Cabriolet should be an enticing buy for high-powered female executives.

Sexy, stylish and comfortable, the Megane Coupe Cabriolet offers room for four as well as the option of driving with the top down.

Its five-star Euro NCAP safety rating should also pacify soccer moms.

Also, executives with a penchant for fast driving should check out what the Megane Renaultsport 230 F1 Team R26 can offer.

Involvement in Formula One has paid off handsomely as Renault can now provide the same technology to the masses.

The Megane R26 is ready to challenge you with its two-litre 16- valve turbocharged engine that can spool up 230hp and 310Nm of torque on the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox with LSD (limited slip differential).

Basically a point and squirt vehicle, this is a fierce car that really ensures you can compete with track enthusiasts and at the same time, commute to work in a fun hot hatch.

Another alternative is the European hot hatch of the year, the Renault Clio RS.

Running on a normal aspirated engine, the Clio RS still dishes out an amazing 197hp of power and 250Nm of torque.

The lack of a turbocharger means a more linear power delivery, and with the aid of the aerokit and wide tyres, downforce and grip will not be an issue.

More than courtesy is also due to the Clio 1.6L, as this basic car provides a very good platform for its sporty Clio RS sibling.

The Clio 1.6L is designed as a comfortable hatchback targeted at city dwellers.

A five-star Euro NCAP rating and good fuel economy from the Clio 1.6L are points for practical executives to look into.
