Styling-wise, their hot hatch is notably gawk-worthy

It’s not that often you will find a car which can upstage an industry icon. But isn’t it natural to have the industry’s best set in your sights? That is what happened when Renault set about in building the new Megane R.S.

The perform better and look better list is extensive. Building on the basic hatch Megane styling, the R.S. gets blistered fenders, widened by 60mm at the front and 45mm at the rear, large 19” Interlagos Diamond-effect alloy rims with wide 245/35 R19 tyres. Large Brembo front brake calipers for added stoppage, F1 style front blade which Renault says helps with the airflow.

Illumination from its C-shaped headlamps is further enhanced by some lovely checkered flag themed R.S. vision multi-reflector LED lights on the bumper, first seen on the 2017 Clio R.S.; which boasts an illuminating range of 460 meters. Ideal for night laps at Sepang Circuit.

Styling-wise, their hot hatch is notably gawk-worthy, and when placed beside the iconic Golf GTi, the Megane R.S.makes the former look rather clinical.
