Renault announces UK pricing and spec for the Megane RS

Renault announces UK pricing and spec for the Megane RS

Renault has launched its hot new Megane RS in the UK. With prices starting from £27,495 (Rs 24.85 lakhs), the new hot hatch comes with a host of tech including four-wheel steer, a Cup chassis and either manual or a dual clutch automatic gearbox. 

A segment first tech comes in the form of the four-wheel steer system. Currently found in several hard-core sports cars, the system allows the front and rear wheels to turn in the same direction at high speeds, and at low speeds, the front and rear wheels turn in the opposite direction for improved agility. 

The new Megane RS gets the option of a six-speed EDC automatic transmission for the first time alongside the six-speed manual. A brand new 1.8-litre engine has been developed with 280bhp – the most powerful 1.8-litre engine available on the UK market today. 

The engine has received a new cylinder head, reinforced structure and more efficient cooling. Another focus was the twin-scroll turbocharger – used on the previous Megane RS – to improve torque at lower revs. All of these elements result in a 390nm peak torque from 2,400-4,800rpm which is among the best in its class.

The new Megane RS is now on sale in the UK with first customer deliveries taking place from July.
