Focus on new Mégane R.S. Trophy

12.02.2020: Introduced on New Clio, R.S. Line is now set to be added to the Mégane family. New Mégane R.S. Line bears a pronounced resemblance with the R.S. models, two letters that are synonymous with high performance. The exterior and interior design cues are clear

Introduced on New Clio, R.S. Line is now set to be added to the Mégane family. New Mégane R.S. Line bears a pronounced resemblance with the R.S. models, two letters that are synonymous with high performance. The exterior and interior design cues are clearly inspired by those most closely associated with Renault Sport.

On the outside, New Mégane R.S. Line boasts an F1-style blade, an iconic element of all R.S. models. On the inside, there are other features unmistakeably identifiable with R.S. models, such as the sports seats with increased lateral support, carbon-finish inserts, the leather steering wheel adorned by the twin diamond R.S. motif and an aluminium sports pedal unit. Lastly, a black interior trim featuring a new colour combination of red borders and technical grey topstitching transforms the driving position into a genuine cockpit.


For the renewal of the model, New Mégane R.S. adopts the engine of the Trophy version, with the range centred on a single 300hp engine.

Furthermore, New Mégane R.S.’s exhaust system now comes with a mechanical valve that enables engine noise to be adjusted. Other equipment, unmistakeably identifiable with Mégane R.S., is still included.

 Not least the 4CONTROL chassis, which delivers outstanding agility through tight turns and impressive cornering stability at higher speeds and a new R.S. Monitor (available as an option) system that lets you display a wide range of vehicle settings in real time: acceleration, braking, steering wheel angle, operation of the 4CONTROL system, temperatures and pressures, etc.

New Renault Mégane RS Trophy - Even sharper sporting prowess

The market leader in very high-performance hatchbacks, New Mégane R.S. Trophy has been designed for the track.

New Mégane R.S. Trophy stands out thanks to its Cup chassis, which is now exclusive to this model, combined with the 1.8-litre, 300hp engine.

Compared with the Sport chassis on New Mégane R.S., the Cup chassis features:

•    A Torsen® mechanical limited slip differential, the calibration of which enables more precise entry to corners and improved traction on exit.
•    25% firmer shock absorbers and 30% tighter springs.
•    10% stiffer anti-roll bars.

New Mégane R.S. Trophy retains its bi-material front brake discs. Whilst lighter, these discs are just as efficient, delivering great heat dissipation during intensive use and thus providing greater endurance.

The acclaimed sensual, sporty design of New Mégane R.S. Trophy has been given a subtle revamp with new LED headlamps and lights. It also features tinted rear windows, a shark fin aerial (in Europe), an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and R.S. Monitor fitted as standard.

On the interior, the sporty feel of the Alcantara upholstery has been modernised with a new red/technical grey colour combination. The sportier Recaro seats are now an exclusive option on this Trophy version.

R.S. Performance: a new line of accessories and merchandising products designed for the Renault Sport community

Renault Sport customers buy much more than cars; they buy into the burning passion for motorsport that has been part of Renault’s lifeblood since its founding days. It is for this reason that Renault Sport has decided to stoke their passion further with a new product range designed to allow them to live it to the full.

The R.S. Performance range, created in 2019, fills the gap between the sport and competition series, meeting the expectations of enthusiasts looking for an extra soupçon of style, performance and even high performance. It’s the essence of Track Days captured to perfection!

The range showcases the world of Renault Sport in its entirety: on the track, on the road and in the workshop, from design to performance, and from tools to bucket seats.

Launched on Clio IV R.S and available since the end of 2019 on Clio III R.S. and Mégane III R.S., R.S. Performance will shortly be available on most R.S. models.

R.S. Performance exclusively available at the Renault Sport online store at the website.
