GT commentator, Sam the Man, recently took the new Megane GT for a spin as he warms up for the new RS. Here's his verdict in 100 words.
The Renault Megane GT is Renault Sport's attempt at a hot hatch that won’t kick you in the face when you decide to get a little pedal-happy. Or will it?
Indeed, the GT is powered by a 1600 turbo that pushes 151kW and a face-bending 280Nm of torque. Nice!
Sure, it doesn’t sound like much, but jislaaik! The new dual-clutch transmission squeezes out every last drop of horsepower as you go. So, if this is Renault Sports attempt at a "mild" hot-hatch, we can't wait for that hooligan - the RS!
Thanks to Renault Fourways for the test drive!
