Renault's new Megane RS gets the manual gearbox and four-wheel steering. According to the news revealed by Motoring, the car come with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard and a seven-speed dual-clutch will be optional.
The latest model will adopt a four-wheel steering system making the car more agile. The new hatchback is said to be highly influenced from the latest Clio RS.
An insider working closely with the company said, "For the new Megane RS it's crucial to offer both transmissions, especially for some markets where enthusiast buyers were put off buying the Clio because it lacks a manual gearbox."
The Megane RS will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds and this model will produce more than 300bhp to the front wheels from a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine.
The model will have an auto rev-match system like the Porsche Cayman GT4 and Nissan 370Z.
The RS will have wider tyres, which will improve its grip. The four-wheel steering will be offered as an option.
Owners who use their vehicles on a daily basis will like the four-wheel steering, due to the added agility it provides. And, for track-obsessed individuals, they will go for the normal variant.
