Nico Hulkenberg’s First Impressions After Driving New Renault Megane RS

Nico Hulkenberg is enjoying his new position after signing Renault F1 last year, and one of the benefits was driving the all-new Renault Megane RS.

The 29-year old German racing driver gave his first impressions after taking the manual and automatic versions of the compact hot hatch out. He revealed the benefits of both, and underlined the fact that having two chassis settings to choose from will make things better, both on the track and during everyday use.

Renault has yet to detail the new Megane RS, but they will likely do so during the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, where it will celebrate its world premiere. We do know that it will set itself apart from the fourth-generation car, on which it builds, with a more aggressive body kit, a stiffer suspension, limited-slip differential, and bigger brakes, alongside other mods.

Power is expected to come from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine delivering some 300 horses to the front axle through either a 6-speed manual, or a dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Making it more agile around corners will be the 4Control system, a four-wheel steering system that will allow the Megane RS to unleash its full power.

    I’m not sure if he genuinely likes the car of if he’s just doing a commercial… If it’s honest, the M4RS might be Renault’s best hot hatch yet (which is a big thing, at least for R.S. fans)
