The Renault’s narrative in the motoring world began far back in 1899 by the three siblings, Louis, Marcel and Fernand Renault. The first Megane was put in the production line for the first time in 1995 and was the successor to the Renault 19, utilizing the predecessor’s drivetrain and chassis. Throughout its lifetime, the Megane has been offered in 3 and 5-door hatchback, saloon, coupé, convertible and estate body styles. And now, the accomplished name has returned with much more to reveal.

The Renault Megane R.S. boasts a 2.0L Renault’s own Turbo Engine equipped with turbocharger and intercooler that generates a maximum of 265BHP and thus appoints the Megane R.S. as the quickest in its class. It has a 6 speed manual, and Mechanical Slip Differential to channel every single horsepower flawlessly while accelerating from 0 to 100kph which is achieved in 6 second and when going flat out, will do 255kph.

The Megane R.S. is equipped with ABS and ESC (Electronic Stability Control) as standard safety support instruments. It also has dual front as well as side and curtain airbags ensuring maximum protection. To complement its sporting pedigree, the Renault Megane R.S. lavishes its legs with 19” alloy wheels and sport Brembo brakes. The innovation of cup chassis gives extra driving pleasure.
