Renault Megane RS (source – 0-100.ro)Leaving aside the whole electronics, engine, gearbox and direction are flawless. Each short movement of the steering wheel is translated into a precise steering wheel and the engine is always present at your feet so that I feel its impressive power resources.

Sport mode that is permissive enough to allow you to play with minor slippages more or less controlled, and the extreme option (Off, Off) should be recommended only on the circuit.
The sensation of the Megane RS is comparable to the Tag. Adrenaline increases the feeling of full control as they have, in turn, you or your car. The fun’s not very expensive for the average consumer that obtained on Bucharest – Sinaia and return was 9.6 liters per 100 kilometers. In the city (Bucharest) rarely pass 17 liters consumption per 100 km.
Unfortunately, the Megane RS brakes give the impression that you are inefficient and make efforts to control the car properly. So even if Brembo write on them, meaning they are not properly sized for the demands of this sport.
The only rival for the Megane RS on the Romanian market is the Volkswagen Scirocco R (265 hp), but competitors could enter the category and Volkswagen Golf GTI (211 hp) and Volkswagen Golf R (271 hp). Ford also offers an alternative theory, the Focus ST (225 hp) and Focus RS (305 bhp), but these cars are at the end of his career and the new Focus is not (at least for now) and three-door variants. About the same situation is found at Opel, which has depleted the supply of engines for the GTC, as the market awaited next-generation car. In other words, all market conditions are favorable Scirocco’s Megane RS & R.
Megane RS has a starting price of 23,600 euros in Romania, including VAT, is unbeatable in its segment in terms of price and benefits. Because it has several optional expensive test car cost about 30,000 euros.
Even so the price is fair for technology and performance, but the Megane RS would be fully deserved praise and money if he had some better brakes and an interior that inspires more quality.
