The New Megane Renault Sport is powered by a new-generation 2-litre 16-valve turbocharged petrol engine which has maximum power of 250hp at 5,500rpm and peak torque of 340Nm from 3,000rpm. The total of the different improvements made to this engine has produced a gain of 20hp and 40Nm over Megane R26.R which itself come out as the yardstick in the world of performance hatches.
The Renault Sport 2.0 T engine’s twin-scroll turbo is extremely responsive and is particularly flexible at lows revs, with 80 % of maximum torque available from 1,900 rpm. Its broad useful rev band makes it a genuine joy to drive in everyday use, and the joy remains all the way up to the rev-limiter as it is pushed a little harder. The engine of New Megane RS drives through a 6-speed manual gearbox.
