RE­NAULT ME­GANE RS

PRICE ON AP­PLI­CA­TION

Torque (Singapore) - - BUY -

The lat­est ver­sion of this French hot hatch of­fers more power and better han­dling than be­fore. Be­neath the bon­net is a tur­bocharged 1.8-litre 4-cylin­der with 280hp and 390Nm, which delivers 15hp and 30Nm more than the tur­bocharged 2-litre mo­tor of the pre­vi­ous model. Avail­able for the first time in the Me­gane RS are a 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox and rear-wheel-steer­ing. The former makes traf­fic jams less of a chore, while the lat­ter im­proves ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity at low speeds and in­creases sta­bil­ity dur­ing ex­press­way runs. RI­VAL: VOLK­SWA­GEN GOLF R
