The new generation Renault Megane RS has some great features that make it one of the best front-wheel drive hot hatches in the market.
‘Four-wheel steering’ is one of them, as unlike its direct rivals, the French car uses this system dubbed 4Control by Renault, to improve its handling. And the best part is that customers don’t have to pay extra to benefit from it, because it’s offered as standard.
What’s else is special about the latest Megane RS? That would be the engine, because aside from a few modifications, it’s identical to the one mounted in the middle of the modern Alpine A110. In the hot hatch, the turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder unit is more powerful, making 280PS (276hp / 206kW) and 390Nm (288lb-ft) of torque, allowing it to cover the 0-100km/h (0-62mph) acceleration in 5.8 seconds.
Now, you may wonder why we chose to recap some of the technical features of the 2018 Renault Megane RS. That’s because the following video reveals yet another interesting aspect of the model: its exhaust sound. Before checking it out, however, remember that this is a car powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, so don’t compare it to an AMG or a Porsche, but rather to a Volkswagen Golf GTI or a Honda Civic Type R.
That said, what’s your verdict on the exhaust note of the latest Megane RS? Tell us what you think below.
