Exclusive styling, inside and out!

Design: R.S. spirit right down to the very last detail.

Featuring an expressive and even sportier design, New Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy is available in the iconic Liquid Yellow. This body colour, with its vibrant finish and unique reflective effects, highlights the sculpted yet elegant profile of the car. The full range of Mégane R.S. body colours is also available.

Designed to deliver performance, boosted by many parts derived from the world of racing, New Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy is naturally expressive.

Enthusiasts will instantly recognise New Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy through its distinguishing traits:

  • The TROPHY stripes added to the F1-style blade
  • The specific 19” wheels, the design of which was inspired by the Renault Sport R.S. 01 concept car, featuring diamond-cut finish with red inserts.

A fully optimised engine.

The Renaultsport 1.8T delivers more power over a longer period

First seen on New Mégane R.S., the 1.8-litre direct injection turbo engine, derived from synergies in the Renault-Nissan Alliance, comes with an upgrade that enables it to pass the symbolic 300hp (220kW) mark for the first time in the R.S. range. Torque has also been increased, reaching a lively 420Nm (+20Nm) with the EDC gearbox and 400Nm with the manual version. 

The position of the valve, automatically controlled according to the Multi-Sense mode selected, the engine speed and load, therefore provides two tones:

  • When the valve is shut, the exhaust gases are routed along a path specifically designed to filter out the low frequencies that cause throbbing noises and process the medium frequencies. The sound produced has a sporty feel but is easy on the ears for everyday use.
  • When the valve is open, the reduced flow resistance enables the gases to be routed along a more direct path. The engine's full sporty potential can then be expressed, in terms of both performance and noise.
