Story

The Mégane II RS was available in three-door and five-door hatchback versions, both with the same engine and it was built at Renault's Dieppe factory, which is where most of their special and race cars are made (like the Clio V6, 5 Turbo, Spyder and Alpine A610 / A110). The Mégane Renault Sport 225 uses double-axis strut suspension with independent steering axis at the front, with electric power steering that reduces its influence as speeds increase.

The RS uses a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine that produces 225 PS (165 kW; 222 bhp), allowing the car to achieve 0–100 km/h in 6.15 s (0–60 mph in 6.0 s), with a top speed of about 240 km/h (149 mph). Ninety percent of the engine's torque is available from 2,000 rpm until redline. A twin-scroll turbo minimizes turbo lag, especially when throttle is applied at over 2,000 rpm. The transmission is a six-speed manual. Renault's claimed combined economy is 8.8 L/100 km (32 mpg-imp; 27 mpg-US).
