New Megane RS for summer arrival

Renault has released more details of the new Megane RS, which will be going on sale in the summer, writes Trish Whelan.

The car made its public debut at Frankfurt Motor Show last September and is the third generation of the model.

It will be powered by a 280hp 1.8 engine developed with input from Renault Sport Racing.

The new Megane RS will also have four-wheel steering and a dual-clutch automatic will be an option for the model for the first time.

There will be a choice from two levels of chassis setup, sport for mostly on-road use, or Cup for owners who enjoy track days with their cars.

Pricing will be available closer to the on-sale date.
