2010 Renault Megane RS: Chic and Sporty
Renault Press Release
16 October 2009
New Megane R.S. is the latest addition to Renault’s line-up of sporting vehicles and stands out from the other models that make up the Megane range through its styling and performance which live up every bit to the newcomer’s sporty pedigree.
In response to customer demand, New Megane R.S. is available from launch with a choice of two chassis: the Sport chassis, for everyday driving pleasure, and the Cup chassis, for even more exhilarating track-focused performance.
New Megane R.S. is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Peak power is 250 hp, while maximum torque stands at 340 Nm which is available across a particularly broad rev-band to deliver a standard of performance that can be enjoyed equally on the road and on race tracks.
New Megane R.S. boasts a raft of specific equipment designed to heighten driving enjoyment, including R.S. Dynamic Management (which permits three ESP modes) and R.S. Monitor (onboard telemetry).
New Megane R.S. is manufactured at Renault’s Palencia plant in Spain, on the same production lines as those of the hatchback, coupe and estate versions of New Megane.
