Renault Megane RS (2018) Civic Type R killer?. New 2018 Renault Megane RS (third-generation of the iconic car) now made even more powerful by a new turbocharged engine with direct fuel injection. The 4-cylinder 1.8-litre (1,798cc) unit combines maximum power of 280 horsepower (205 kW) at 6,000rpm with peak torque of 390 Nm, a figure that puts it amongst the very best in its class. The New Mégane R.S. is equipped with 4CONTROL, with four-wheel steering, a global first for the segment, now affording the car’s Sport and Cup versions outstanding agility through tight turns and impressive cornering stability at higher speeds.
New Mégane RS is differentiated by four hydraulic compression bump stops, inspired by rally driving. This configuration provides the Cup version of the car with optimal handling efficiency on all types of road, plus a level of comfort that is unprecedented in the car’s class for the Sport version. Combined with entirely redesigned independent steering axis front suspension for even sharper precision, the Cup version’s new Torsen limited slip differential improves traction and cornering speeds. For the first time, the All-New Mégane R.S. can be specified with a choice of two types of transmission, namely a six-speed manual gearbox or six-speed EDC dual clutch transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle-shift gear changes.
