2018 Renault Sport Mégane previewed in new video

In the year 2018, the Renault Mégane RS is more than 300 HP, with both manual and automatic forms, and has been shown in a new preview video released by Renault.

The future hot hatch will also be four-wheel-steering and you benefit from the larger platform of the current Mégane, so that it to steal a competitor to the Nürburgring front-wheel-drive, the best time from the current champion, the VW Golf GTI Clubsport p.

Under the bonnet of the hottest fourth generation of the Mégane, a Turbo 2.0-Liter engine. The unit is more than 300 HP, so that it is at least 29bhp more powerful than the most powerful version of the old car, the engine.

The car will drive the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission, but a six-speed EDC dual-clutch automatic will be offered almost certainly for the first time. While in the European markets, the instructions for use are likely to prefer to, the markets in Asia are likely to be more demand for endocrine disruptors.

Due to the lower and longer five-door only platform of the new Mégane, which sits 25mm lower and 28mm longer than the old car, plus the wider the traces, the next Mégane RS, it is expected that significantly more mechanical grip.

The use of four-wheel steering will also help in order to make it more agile to speed, while improving the car’s turning circle and the activation of Renault Sport, the steering is more alert,.

The hottest version of the outgoing Mégane RS 275 Cup S, reaches 62 mph from rest in just 5.8 sec. Expect the next Megane to trim several tenths from the sprint-time, so that it is faster than the Honda Civic Type R, which takes 5.7 sec, and in the vicinity of the four-wheel-drive Audi S3, the needs of 5.2 sec.

The sporty design, it is expected that the influence of the details of the last Clio RS. The test mule is wearing a cut-up version of the Mégane GT ‘ s body, only with wheel arch add-ons, and a centrally mounted twin exit exhaust system, giving away the true identity of what lies beneath.

Renault has remained tight-lipped about his next hot Mégane, but the brand has at least hinted that the car will be arriving some time in 2018. As in the case of the facelifted Clio, expect a small increase in price over the current Mégane RS, so a starting price of around £24,000 is likely to occur. We expect to first see it on the IAA in Frankfurt, though.

This is significantly below the Honda Civic Type R, which starts at £30.000, and is one of the Mégane RS on the less hardcore Ford Focus ST, which starts at £22,750.
