New Megane R.S.

by | Apr 6, 2020 | Renault, Reviews

2020 Megane R.S. – Racing is in its Genes!

The very DNA of Renault’s Formula 1 Racing team is genetically engineered into both the Megane R.S. 280 Lux EDC and the Renault Megane R.S. 280 Cup, and at the heart of these amazing pieces of automotive engineering beats the 1.8 litre 16-valve, 4 Cylinder Turbo Direct Injection Engine. Built to stun those who see them, surprise those who think they know them and invigorate those who drive them, the Renault Megane R.S. Range is unlike any Conventional Sports Car we’ve ever built before. Yes, the passion for French style and sporty good looks is there, but so too is the brute force of a thoroughbred racing vehicle that is far beyond what many have come to expect to find in an everyday vehicle.

Although there is a distinctly different feel to these two vehicles, this is all down to trim levels and sports packages and transmission, as these racy little numbers both have an athlete’s heart and will delight and astound you as you enjoy a vehicle that offers both more bark as well as a lot more bite than your regular Hot Hatch!

The beating heart of a true champion powers both the Megane R.S. 280 Lux EDC and the Renault Megane R.S. 280 Cup in the shape of the engineering marvel that is Renaults 1.8 Litre 16-valve, 4 Cylinder Turbo Direct Injection Engine which puts out an astounding amount of power!

All of this is controlled using Renault’s 6-speed manual gearbox in the Renault Megane R.S. 280 Cup, and the EDC Automatic Double Clutch in the Megane R.S. 280 Lux EDC, allowing both of these lightning fast vehicles to blow away the competition with a standard performance of 0-100 kph in 5.0 seconds and a 400 meter sprint in 14.0 seconds. And if you think that is impressive, then you’ll be amazed at the Renault Megane R.S. 1000 meter sprint which can be done in a jaw dropping 25.0 seconds.
