2019 Renault Megane RS Is Already Available On The ‘Used’ Car Market

A car dealer based in Heisenberg, Germany, is among the first to have the new generation Renault Megane RS listed for sale.

In the ad posted on Mobile, they claim that the French hot hatch can be “freely configured according to your wishes”.

However, those interested in the car should be careful when reading it and see that it doesn’t start from €24,990 ($30,499), but rather at €37,600 ($46,055). That’s for the six-speed manual gearbox version, and without any optional equipment.

Unlike other dealers that keep putting up new models for sale before they actually become available, this one doesn’t have any insanely expensive and rare supercars in its list. Instead, they sell various new Dacias, Fords, Hyundais, Kias, Peugeots, Seats, Skodas and Volkswagens.

Presented to the world last fall at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, the all-new Megane RS is based on the latest iteration of the compact car, with RenaultSport taking it from there and injecting it with its sports DNA. As a result, it comes with two chassis settings, four-wheel steering, a limited slip differential, stiffer suspension, Brembo brakes, specific body kit and sporty interior trim.

The 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine generates 280PS (276hp) and 390Nm (288lb-ft) of torque, and is mated to either a six-speed manual or a dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The official 0-100km/h 0-(62mph) sprint time is 5.8sec, or just 0.1sec slower than one of its main rivals, the Honda Civic Type R.

    Dear Renault,
    This car is hardly “RS” with that sluggish gearbox. Sorry your EDC sucks.
    Sincerely.
