Selecting GT brings sport mode
Until the 205kw/390nm 1.8-litre RS version appears, the GT is the hottest Megane variant available. Replacing the regular range’s 97kw/205nm 1.2-litre four-pot turbo with the 151kw/280nm 1.6-litre turbo transforms the driving experience and an ‘R. S. Drive’ button allows selection from Comfort, Neutral or Sport modes, for throttle, steering, engine and transmission mapping. There are no big changes to the strut front and torsion beam rear suspension but you do get larger brake discs.
