Needs a more inspiring engine note

The previous generation Megane was well known for its appalling lack of quality on the inside. The new Megane's cabin is an improvement over its predecessor's but it is still not up to Volkswagen levels of quality and perceived luxury. In terms of utility, the Megane actually offers more trunk space and rear passenger room than the Volkswagen Scirocco.

Go-faster bits for the RS include two-piece Recaro buckets from the Clio R27, alloy foot pedals, matte carbon dashboard trim, a yellow rev counter with matching yellow seat belts and so on.

Hot hatch lovers have had a ball of a time when it comes to new models this year. There's the Golf R, Focus RS, Scirocco R and now, the Renaultsport Megane. The Renault's competitors might have bigger punches under their bonnets and hence offer more performance or are probably easier to live with but it is the Megane RS that will put the widest grin on a keen driver's face each time. So Santa, can I have one in white this coming Christmas?
