New Megane R.S. revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show

Megane R.S

Megane R.SRenault Sport has taken the wraps off New Renault Mégane R.S. at the 2017 Frankfurt International Motor Show.

Since the launch of the original Mégane R.S. back in 2004, the model has carved out a strong reputation in the high-performance C-segment and become widely regarded as a benchmark in its class.

New Renault Mégane R.S. takes Renault Sport’s unmistakeable hallmarks of agility, efficiency and driving enjoyment a step further thanks to a more finely-tuned chassis performance permitted by 4CONTROL technology complete with four-wheel steering, a first in the segment. An all-new 280hp/390Nm engine has benefited from synergies within the Alliance, and, for the first time, New Renault Mégane R.S. is available with a choice of two transmission options.

Order books for New Renault Mégane R.S. will open in the UK in spring 2018.
