SA-bound Renault Megane RS priced in Europe


Unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and set to arrive in South Africa within the next few months, Renault has now officially released European pricing for the much awaited new Megane RS.

Packing the same 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol engine as the revived Alpine A110, the unit in the RS, which replaces the long serving 2.0-litre mill, has been fettled to produce 206 kW and 390 Nm of torque and comes mated to a six-speed manual gearbox or a model first six-speed EDC. No top speed figure have yet been revealed, with Renault merely claiming a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 5.8 seconds.

As well as featuring a development of the Megane GT's 4Control four-wheel steering system, the RS boasts a Torsen limited slip differential and new Multi-Sense drive selector with five modes: Comfort, Normal, Sport, Race and Preso.

Pricing will start at €37 600 (R554 177) for the manual and at €39 400 (R580 707) for the EDC, with latter expected to debut first. An additional €1 500 (R22 108) meanwhile nets the Cup Pack that adds sport suspension, the aforementioned limited slip diff and Brembo brake calipers.
