PERFORMANCE

With an all-new 1.8L turbocharged engine designed by the very same engineers behind the Renault Sport Formula One Team, the All-New Renault MÉGANE R.S. is ready to inject an impressive power output of 280hp at 6,000rpm and a maximum torque of 390Nm into the everyday drive.

For the very first time, this race model is equipped with a six-speed Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) automatic transmission to offer everyday drivability from road to track. Built on a Sport chassis that provides improved handling on the most uneven of roads, its shock absorbers with new four hydraulic compression stops enable optimum control of tyre-ground contact. Inspired by Formula One race cars, the Multi-Gear Downshift Function rapidly downshifts multiple gears simultaneously, allowing for the best gear to be swiftly engaged to take on any cornering that confronts the drive.

Originally engineered only in prestigious high-performance sport cars, the groundbreaking 4CONTROL four-wheel steering system supports easy manoeuvrability at low speeds and high degree of stability at high speeds for unrivalled agility through tight cornering. In addition, experience a breathtaking rush of adrenaline with the Launch Control that maximises available traction for instantaneous acceleration from a standing start.

Analyse driving performance through the cutting-edge R.S. Monitor on-board performance telemetry system, which provides real-time data derived from acceleration, braking, steering wheel angle, operation of the 4CONTROL system, temperatures and pressures, etc, to measure driving achievements on and off track.
