2018 Renault Megane RS pricing to start around $45,000

The hotly-anticipated Renault Megane RS will be priced in the neighbourhood of $45,000 when it arrives in the third quarter of this year, making it more expensive than the Volkswagen Golf GTI. Renault will bring the car to Australia in 'basic' Sport trim initially, with prices kicking off from around $45,000 in manual guise. The electronic dual-clutch (EDC) transmission will cost an additional $2500, pushing the sticker to around $47,500.

2016 Kia Cee'd GT spied

The updated Kia model is set to see the introduction of a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, something that Kia Australia has suggested could prove vital to the success of the manual-only Pro_cee'd GT.

To help it get from A to B a car’s engine sucks in air and some fuel, combusting the two to generate rotating motion, which is then transferred to the wheels via a transmission. Not that long ago choosing between transmissions was easy: manual or automatic. Those who prioritised value, fuel economy, performance or driving pleasure went for manuals, while everyone else chose automatics. Simple.
