After a long period of time during which Renault kept its fans and journalists in suspense, at last the presentation of a novelty from the French automaker - hatchback Megane RS of the third generation was held. The show was held at the motor show that started in Frankfurt.

The car is equipped with a turbocharged gasoline engine 1.8, which is already familiar to the automotive compartment Alpine A110. This unit has a capacity of 280 hp. and gives 390 Nm of torque. The manufacturer offers two variants of Megane RS: with a 6-step "mechanics" or a 6-step "robot".

Information about the dynamics of the machine its creators preferred to conceal, however, given that the previous model was equipped with a 265- and 275-horsepower engine and exchanged the "hundred" in six seconds, it can be confidently asserted that the new five-door hatchback will be faster.

In the continuation of the topic, it can be noted that the Megane RS received "thrusters" rear wheels, and the front axle acquired a differential Torsen. However, the latter option is only available for the more brutal version of the Cup.

If we talk about the electronic "stuffing" of the car, it is worth mentioning the fact that the driver will be given a choice of several control modes: Comfort, Normal, Sport, Race and Perso.

The novelty from Renault will not leave indifferent those who lead an active life in social networks. The machine has a telemetry recording system that allows you to record a trip to Megane RS via the connected camera and post this data for public viewing and discussion.

The European consumers will be able to place an order for the purchase of new products in December, and next year a 300-strong Renault Megane RS in the Trophy version will be on sale.
