More good news comes in the form of finance payments as customers may find the resulting monthly payments will be cheaper, compared to the outgoing model due to the rise in residual value given by CAP.

The biggest ever lift in residual values given by CAP for a new model at 8%. This really shows the weakness the old model had but still a result for Renault, as many finance terms are based on the cars value at the end of the term. The new Megane Hatchback will be worth more at the end of a lease purchase agreement and therefore be more attractive in monthly payments.
