2018 Renault Megane Rumors and Review – Renault is positioning back almost all of the details until the formal debut in Sept at the 2017 Frankfurt auto show. However, we have learned a couple of things in Monaco where we also noticed current Renault Sport F1 drivers Nico H?lkenberg take the car out onto the famous Circuit de Monaco.
2018 Renault Megane Redesign
The new Megane RS retains the front-wheel-drive configuration of its predecessor, though for the first time it provides a dual-clutch transmission instead of the standard manual transmitting. Another change is a swap from the predecessor’s three-door body to a far more practical five-door form.
Compared to the existing Megane GT – which is tuned by the French company’s athletics division but not a full-fledged RS car – the Megane RS features a big central exhaust shop with twin pipes inside (the GT has two exhaust outlets, one at each end). The trapezoid opening is housed in a sizeable back diffuser and a chunkier back bumper with two vertical vents on the sides. The tailgate spoiler has a central ridge.
2018 Renault Megane Engine
The new 1.8 produces 249 bhp and 236lb ft of torque in the Alpine, but vitality is forecasted to become more than 300bhp in the Renault Sport hot hatch, in order to provide the car a struggling with chance against competitors like the 306bhp Civic Type R. This might make the new car at least 29bhp more potent than the most effective version of its predecessor, the 275 Cup S.
2018 Renault Megane Release Date and Price
Renault has continued to be tight-lipped about its next hot Megane, however the brand has at least hinted that the car’s appearance particular date will be some time in 2018. Much like the facelifted Clio, expect a little increase in price over that of the current Megane RS, so a starting price of around ?27,000 is probable. We expect to first view it at the Frankfurt engine show, though.
