Description

The second generation Mégane was launched in 2002 and received a facelift in 2006. The performance oriented Mégane II RS was available in three-door and five-door hatchback versions and it was built at Renault’s Dieppe factory.

The car was fitted with a twin scroll turbo 2.0-litre petrol engine producing 225 hp (165 kW) of power and 300 Nm of torque, allowing the car to achieve 0–100 km/h in 6.5 seconds and could reach a top speed of about 236 km/h (147 mph). It was also available with a 2.0L (1995 cc) diesel engine producing 173 hp (127 kW) at 3750 rpm and 360 Nm (270 lbft) at 2000 rpm. allowing the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8,5 seconds and reach a top speed of 221 km/h (137 mph).

Both versions used double-axis strut suspension with independent steering axis at the front, with electric power steering that reduced its influence as speeds increase.

Visually the car was distinguished by the redesigned bumpers with larger air intakes, 17 or 18 inch wheels, new xenon headlights and the centrally located double exhaust pipes. Inside the car had sport seats in leather/cloth and seat belts with red stitching. The Renault Megane II RS was facelifted in 2006 with redesigned grille and bumpers, new wheels and updated interior trim.
