Rear-wheel steering and dual-clutch gearbox make a more modern Megane R.S.

Power in the hottest Megane comes from a new turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, making 280 hp (205 kW) of power at 6,000 rpm, and 390 Nm (288 lb-ft) of torque between 2,400 and 5,000 rpm. The engine is shared with the Alpine A110, but it benefits from a new cylinder head, a revised dual-intake air filter and a twin-scroll turbocharger for stronger low-down response. Interestingly, the engine is significantly less powerful than the Honda Civic Type R (235 kW/315 hp) and Ford Focus RS (257 kW/350 hp).
