New 276bhp Renault Megane RS hot hatch lands in Frankfurt

Frankfurt Motor Show: Renault Sport Megane RS revealed

Hot hatch Renault Megane RS the third generation got the turbo petrol 1.8, which debuted earlier on the coupe Alpine A110.

Renault has revealed its long-awaited replacement for the Megane RS at the Frankfurt motor show that features more power, a special wide-body, four-wheel steering and an advanced motorsport-inspired aero.

The RS Monitor on-board telemetry system gets new graphics in a choice of two configurations, displaying your driving performance in real time on the 22cm R-Link 2 screen - or you can connect a camera or smartphone, video your laps and play then back, with your performance data in the image. Despite the 200cc drop in capacity outputs increase to 205kW and 390Nm, fed through either a six-speed manual (hooray!) or six-speed dual-clutch transmission like that found in the Clio.

The bodywork has been suitably beefed up - it's now 60mm wider at the front and 45mm wider at the rear compared to a Megane GT. Performance should be enhanced by the 4CONTROL four-wheel steering.

In the Arsenal of the new "charged" hatchback is the system mode selection control electronics Multi-Sense: Comfort, Normal, Sport, Race and Perso.

Irma could bring flash floods to Cobb County
Few parts of the peninsula were spared the hurricane's enormous reach - though many places escaped the worst-case scenario. The Keys are linked by 42 bridges that have to be checked for safety before motorists can be allowed in, officials said.

One cool class-exclusive feature of the Renault Megane R.S. is 4Control four-wheel steering, which should give the auto exceptional agility at high speeds.

Renault is set to release full performance figures later today but, thanks to claimed "class-leading" power-to-weight ratio, the small hot hatch should hit 100km/h in 5.8 seconds and top out at more than 250km/h. Created to boost agility at low speed and stability at high-speed, the system will be fitted to every model as standard. Upgrades on the Megane R.S. Cup include a Torsen limited-slip differential and suspension tuned for "optimal handling efficiency on all types of road".

Another first for the segment and the Megane RS, Renault claims, are the car's hydraulic compressions stops.

The Megane RS goes on sale in United Kingdom in the spring, and although official prices are yet to be confirmed, a starting price below £30,000 is expected.
