Introduction

What Car? says...

The pressure of making the latest Renault Megane RS match its predecessor must have been intense – like shooting the Godfather Part II after the spectacular success of the original film.

The previous Megane RS was one of the greatest hot hatches ever, so the job of designing and building this follow-up was undoubtedly daunting in the extreme. It’s not just the past this latest car has to live up to, either. There are lots of extremely talented rival cars out there too.

In this review, we’ll tell you about all versions of the Megane RS, including how they compare with their rivals, what the handling, comfort and running costs are like, and what else you should consider before buying. If you're more interested in the regular Renault Megane hatchback, it's reviewed in full here

Whichever car you decide is the right make and model for you, you can use the free What Car? New Car Buying service to find big savings off the list price, potentially saving thousands without having to haggle. There are some tempting Megane RS deals available right now.
