Renault Megane RS265

Renault Megane RS265

The Megane RS is pretty much the undisputed king of the current hot hatch crop. Despite being not too far from its use-by date, the Megane is still getting plenty of attention. Which brings us to the RS 265 Trophy.

The new design of a  three-door Megane barely looks related to the five-door hatch. With a pumped-up rear end and a more stylish the distinctive hatch has been with us for some years now and is ageing gracefully.

Renault's long-lived 2.0-litre turbo is under the bonnet, mated to a six-speed manual. With 201kW and 360Nm of torque, it expects premium unleaded which it will drink at the rate of a claimed 7.5L/100km. Stick the boot in and you'll get around 13.0L/100km. Find a good piece of road. Because once you do, you will discover that the hype surrounding this car is entirely justified.
