The all-new Renault MÉGANE R.S has been officially unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt International motor show.
Set to go on sale early 2018 in Ireland, why not get in touch with us below and you can be one of the first to take it on a test-drive.
This is the 3rd generation of the RS Megane and will be powered by the latest direct fuel turbocharged Renault engine throwing out an outrageous 280hp or 205KW at 6,000rpm and best yet it is set to have a peak torque of 390Nm.
On the exterior, the most notable new feature of the RS is its width. The 2018 version features wider wings to increase its performance and downforce, giving you perfect control on all roads. The Megane sits on new 18 or 19 inch alloys and features wide air intakes, a rear spoiler & diffusor, a F1-style front blade and a 3D honeycomb-pattern grill mesh.
Renault have introduced an unusual striking ‘Tonic Orange’ colour to the line-up that is sure to stand out. It will be the first to receive Renault's latest 4CONTROL 4-wheel drive steering and will be availble in two transmissions - 6 speed manual or 6-speed EDC auto.
Speaking on the Megane RS - Patrice Ratti, General Manager of Renault Sport Cars:
“Performance is the chief reason our customers cite for purchasing the MÉGANE R.S. and the All-New MÉGANE R.S. takes the styling and technologies even further to deliver truly exceptional driving enjoyment. Our intention is to see the All-New MÉGANE R.S., with its chassis and 4CONTROL, remain THE C-segment hot hatch benchmark,”
