The New Renault MEGANE R.S. invites you to take to the road, with Alcantara sports seats designed for support, a leather steering wheel* and personalisable dashboard. At the same time, the short gear shift** and aluminium pedal assembly take you into a new dimension, the world of R.S. sporting performance. *Nappa leather. **Manual Cup model only.

F1® Technology inspired power

The New Renault MEGANE R.S. features a new version of the 1.8-litre direct injection turbo engine, derived from Alliance synergies. This version develops a power output of 205 kW at 6,000rpm and peak torque of 390Nm available from 2,400 to 4,800rpm. Renault Sport’s engine specialists designed a completely new cylinder head, with a reinforced structure and more efficient cooling. Work also focused on the Twin Scroll turbocharger, to improve torque at low revs. To increase the supply of cool air to the engine, the air intake was redesigned with the addition of a second air inlet and a new, larger filter.

Suspension with hydraulic compression stops

With the addition of hydraulic compression stops, the shock absorbers absorb impact better. This technology delivers spectacular results in terms of progressive control, comfort and performance.

New Torsen® limited slip differential*

Associated with the Cup chassis, it has an asymmetrical transfer rate for acceleration and deceleration to improve acceleration power and cornering speed. Efficiency and performance.
*Available on Megane R.S. 280 Cup

 

Efficiency and performance

The New Renault MEGANE R.S. benefits from the know how of Renault Sport in adapting motorsports technologies to production sports vehicles. It features a range of driving aids for any type of road and any situation.

 

Agility and stability

4CONTROL technology contributes to incisive steering and optimised roadholding for a precise, surefooted drive. At low speeds, the system turns the rear wheels in the opposite direction to the front wheels. At speeds of over 60 kph (100 km/h in Race mode), all four wheels turn in the same direction. You are in control of the road.

 

Aim for pole position

When you hit the track use R.S. Drive to select your driving mode (Neutral, Sport
and Race) and adapt the gearbox mapping*, ESP behaviour, steering weight and throttle pedal mapping. Play with the paddles to change gears at ultra-fast speed.
Enjoy the excitement of a Grand Prix start with Launch Control*.
*Only on EDC version.

 

Sporty but reliable

 With its many driving aids, the New Renault MEGANE R.S. allies sporting performance with safety. It also features parking sensors, overspeed warning and emergency braking assistance. An impressive pedigree! R.S. Vision: groups the side lights, long-range headlights, fog lights and cornering lights, as part of a high-performance lighting package.
