2020 Renault Megane RS Trophy-R review

There have been some sizzling Renault Sport Meganes over the past decade or so but this 2020 Megane RS Trophy-R ups the hardcore measure appreciably. Renault boasts it is the best performing Renault production model ever. No pressure to impress us, then.

Holiday weekend getaway in the Renault Megane RS

As perhaps my personal favourite release of 2018 under a quarter-mil’, the Renault Megane RS – the ‘softer’ Sport EDC, specifically – was my list-topper for Christmas break getaway cars...

SIBLING RIVALRY: Renault Megane RS280 Sport EDC Auto v Cup Manual

Chances are that if you’ve got the all-new 2018 Renault Megane RS in your future car-ownership crosshairs, you’ve already decided on transmission preference in the choice between conventional manual and EDC dual-clutch types, even before you’ve so much as sat in the French hatch. Fair enough. But let's do this anyway...

2019 Renault Megane RS v Civic Type R and Focus RS: Hot hatch encore!

Well, you asked for it. When we ran our last hot hatch comparison, Renault had rudely not yet launched its new Megane RS in Australia. So, we had to leave it out, and we wound up with winners in the Honda Civic Type R and the Ford Focus RS. But now the Megane RS is here... can it dethrone our heroes? We went back to the track to find out.

2017 Renault Megane Wagon : 2016 Geneva Motor Show

Read the article here. The new 2017 Renault Megane wagon has been revealed, following the Frankfurt motor show debut of the new Megane hatch in September 2015. As expected, the 2017 Renault Megane wagon follows in the footsteps of its predecessor by adding roof rails and a more practical load-hauling back-end to the regular hatch model, while retaining a fast look with a tapered roofline – the go-to sports styling trick for most modern wagons...

Hyundai i30 N v Renault Megane RS v Volkswagen Golf GTI comparison

Renault Australia axes Megane GT, GT-Line

Renault has decided to stop selling the warmed-up Megane GT and GT-Line in Australia, leaving the 205kW RS hot hatch as the sole member of its small-car range.  While there’s no impediment to sourcing Megane GT and GT-Lines, the company says customer demand has declined to the point the cost of stocking them, promoting them, keeping parts for them, and transporting them, no longer stacks up...

2005 Renault Megane Dynamique LX review

One fine, sunny day many years ago, my wife said to me "I think we should get a convertible. I'd look good in a convertible". At the time we were a young couple with a 20-month old toddler. While most people in that bracket go looking for a wagon or an SUV, we brought home our first drop-head - a 1991 Ford Capri Verde...

2011 Renault Megane RS 250 Monaco GP review

Renault has had a longstanding history with building hot hatches that are at the forefront of affordable front-wheel-drive performance cars. Some of the most impressive and insane hot-hatch hardware has come from this little factory in Dieppe (I’m pointing at you, Renault Clio Sport V6!)...

2015 Renault Megane RS275 Trophy-R review

I've always been a fan of the Megane Coupe, and in 2016 I was able to purchase one from Adelaide, then drive it home carefully in the rain back to Melbourne (Semi-slick Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres). I wasn't disappointed and have covered 8000km trouble-free since. This is basically a stripped-out Megane RS275 with BTC specs...

2015 Renault Megane GT 220 Premium review

I was looking for a sports wagon with space for some luggage and a bike in the back for weekend getaways, and fun to drive (aka some performance capabilities), coming from an Alfa Romeo 147 GTA that became too small (but what an engine). The proposition would be under $41K, and I shortlisted the Skoda Octavia RS wagon, the Renault Megane GT 220 and the Golf Wagon R, which ended up being out of the price range...
