Had a liquid yellow one for 3 hours Tuesday while the 275 cup s was getting serviced and will say its a better every day car with the modes and engine seeming a little less punchier lower down but when pushed on down some roads I know well its still a good handling car with some added cornering ability.

Forgot to say the new car had bi metallic brakes and cup pack. I would say go have a extended drive rather than listening to what the mags say.

Glad to see Liquid Yellow still is the best colour for Megane.

Nice colour and black wheels


Looks nice, price seems high though. I wouldn't want to pay top wack for a car thats been used as a demo personally.

This week's autocar and this months top gear mag all have megane RS in group tests:

https://www.autocar.co.uk/magazine

"..we pit Renault Sport’s new hot Mégane against the hot hatch of the moment, the Honda Civic Type R, to see if Dieppe’s engineers have dethroned our long-standing champion."

https://www.topgear.com/...op-gear-magazine-out-now

"Plus, we bring the you the definitive hot hatch group test following the return of one of the big guns: the new Renault Megane RS is here, so we pit it against the Honda Civic Type R, Hyundai i30N and Cupra R."


not read either as i've just got of a plane, but will be popping down to sainsburys in a mo to pick up both hopefully.

Hi, after the magazine reviews of the Megane RS 280 felt I had to register & let you know my thoughts.
I recently drove a Megane RS Cup on track at Silverstone at the SpeedMachine festival.Bear in mind that my opinions are purely track based so I can't comment on how the car will be on the road.
The instructor let me drive flat out from the start & I found it to have a gutsy, strong engine with good power delivery. Handling was superb & on one particular corner where I went in way too fast I could really feel the RWS tightening the line & together with the LSD getting me round the corner.
Gearchange & clutch were good, steering was good,Cup suspension wasn't too firm (on a smooth racetrack!). Interior seemed well put together;Alcantara seats were comfy & held you in place. Exhaust sounded suitably rorty. They had the cars in Yellow, Orange & Silver and it looked good in all 3 colours. The car was wide, aggressive looking & had a great stance,
All in all, I really liked it & its on my list as a replacement for my much loved Peugeot 308 GTI 270.

Yeah I agree just when you are ready to give a lift to tighten line the rear would steer meaning you could keep your foot on the throttle which was good but sort of took that driver input away. It is definitely more comfortable than my standard 275 cup s on road.

So i have the topgear, autoexpress and autocar magazines sat here on my desk, read them all, grouptests with civic, cupra, i30 etc

nothing really new to add, lots of positives about the megane's ability to go round corners as you'd expect, firm ride called out (why do the press cars all have "cup" - surely it would be better to give "sport" chassis cars to the journo's if they are going to do a test on the road?) but they all put the civic ahead.

the press cars have a bunch of options so they are well in to the 30's pricewise which puts it on a par with the civic, when in reality it can be a 28k car if you don't blitz the options list so a chunk of money cheaper than even the boggo civic R (which no-one actually ever orders).

I would guess that if RS ever managed to put an option for the Diff to be in the Sport chassis then it might be the car to have as a daily driver 90% of the time. Going by what the journo's have said/complained about...
