  • With all the furore surrounding the Focus RS, it's easy to forget Renault is still building an RS Mégane. A class leader from the year it was launched, the.

    The latest Renault Megane R.S. is the most sophisticated model yet and is a true hot hatch contender.

    The Mégane R.S. Trophy has a raft of changes, starting with a little more.

    It is also known that the F1 drivers celebrated the success of the championships in Sandton, South Africa with a show of burning tyres etc. If Autocar says Megane is a riot then it sure is. Premium also hints at its impressive equipment specification. Archived from the original on 15 March Consequently it has to be reviewed in terms of its fitness for purpose.

    Can an even sharper focus enhance an already great hot hatch, or has the Megane RS been eclipsed by even hotter rivals? This adds a limited-slip differential, stiffer springs, dampers and anti-roll bars. The vast majority of the revisions are designed to make the Renault keener, quicker and more engaging. What the Renault really majors on is communication and control.

    Despite electronically assisted steering a torrent of information is relayed to you via the comfortable Alcantara-trimmed wheel. The throttle is also responsive and easily modulated, the clutch action painless to judge, and the brakes capable of bleeding off speed quickly and controllably. Coupled with immense front-end grip, plenty of traction and superb body control, the resulting experience when driven at speed is utterly intoxicating.

    In conjunction with the stiffer suspension, LSD and distinctive cosmetic changes, the resulting feel is of a notably more evocative car than the normal Renaultsport. What further impresses is the accessibility of it all. The Renault does admirably elsewhere. So, no tearing a tyre off the rim following an optimistic corner entry and immediately being immobilised.

    Those seeking a more hardcore experience can even opt for adjustable dampers and track-focused tyres; a lighter Trophy-R variant is also offered — which does away with the likes of air-con in the name of performance. Only a few foibles, such as a predictably hectic ride on rough surfaces and the stereotypical limitations of a high-powered front-drive hot hatch, occasionally detract from the experience.

    It's also annoying to find the frequently accessed Sport button, which allows you to adjust the Renault's responses and disable the stability control, tucked well out of reach to the right of the steering column. What the Trophy compensates with is purity of focus, outright pace and sheer engagement. So when put like that, the Renault with it's cheap interior is now not such a performance bargain.

I know priorities and criteria are slightly different for hot hatches, but it still surprises me that Renault can churn out performance cars, of which many have been fabulous, yet when it comes to the mainstream cars they're based on, Renault generally struggles resulting in tedium. I'm struggling to recall when Renault last had a truly great car, yet alone a class leader.

    The only one that springs to mind was the first Laguna from 20 years ago. If memory serves me right, it nearly matched the Mondeo and had great handling and ride.

Renault however sinned by side-stepping its wonderful RS agenda by offering the Clio RS with an semi automatic only option. All very well and good, but As pointed out, the Seat Leon Cupra is faster, more efficient, much better build quality, and cheaper.

    And as proven in a recent Steve Sutcliffe Autocar video, the Cupra is more than a match for the even more expensive and powerful Golf R. It might be a little less fun to drive but overall the Leon is by far the better product and it looks arguably better especially with the LED headlights.
