Renault has presented 2 new versions of its Megane RS 2016, the 275 S and Cup 275 Nav will be available for booking from November.
The version 275 S Cup series offer more performance and version 275 Nav replace version 265 with 10 CV extra power without increasing price. Both models will be powered by engines liter 275 CV EU6-compliant. It is the same engine that assembles the Megane RS Trophy limited edition R.
The maximum torque shall be 360 Nm being available in the range 3.000 and 5.000 r.p.m. and accelerating 0 a 100 km/h de 6.0 seconds, with maximum speed 255 km/h. Not bad, Huh?.
As for consumption, Renault ensures that only consume 6,25 liters per 100 kilometers and emits 174 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
The RenaultSport Dynamic Management system manages to deliver 275 CV indicating the model name, because without activating this system are 250 CVs generated by the engine. 3 driving modes available connected to the ESC (Electronic Stability Control system), with normal 250 CV, the sport with 275 CV and Sport mode accelerator and entry into action of the ESC, and the career mode Sport mode accelerator and off ESC.
RS 2016 have a wide range of options to enhance the performance and the price difference between them will be quite small, being 275 Nav more expensive in the base price. Surely, one of the best front-wheel drive car of the moment, as evidenced by his record lap time at the Nurburgring for example.
Por example Öhlins adjustable shock absorbers, exhaust system Akrapovic titanium ultralight tires or Michelin Pilot Sport Cup.
Le version 275 Nav mounts the same engine and gives the same performance as the 275 Cup S, with the difference that has more appropriate specifications to driving race.
We see that Renault no longer evolve its RS, which portends yet another gem and maximum competition for the Honda Civic Type R, SEAT Leon Cupra, el Volkswagen Golf R o el Ford Focus ST, inter alia.
