MÉGANE R.S. WINS GROUP TEST AGAINST HYUNDAI I30 N
"The fourth generation Mégane is a more mature, higher quality, less demanding hot hatch than it has ever been" writes PistonHeads, whilst the four-wheel steering delivers "the sort of poised agility we've all craved in a modern Mégane."
"There's a chassis of exemplary quality in this Mégane. Certainly one that's worthy of the Renault Sport name, and absolutely superior to the Hyundai's. It's that classic Renault Sport trait: the point at which others are reaching their limit is where the Gallic genius begins to shine."
"The harder you drive, the better it gets - more responsive, more agile and more alive, the quicker you go. That it is good enough already to shade the enormously likeable i30 N is testament to the job done by Renault Sport at the first try."

5 STAR REVIEW IN WHAT CAR?
"The good news is that the Mégane gets the basics right" reports What Car? "Not only is the Mégane quick enough, but it also makes a throaty rasp that's a lot more appealing than the Type R's rather subdued sound."
"Our test car came with the standard six-speed manual gearbox, which is one of the better 'boxes in the class, the short throw and absence of slack are preferable to what you'd find in the Volkswagen Golf R and BMW M140i."
"The Mégane doesn't just feel keen to turn in; it seems to pivot around the gearstick. Indeed, we can't think of a front-wheel-drive car that resists slipping wide at the front quite so well."
"That bargain price and the addictive driving experience just tips this Cup version into five-star territory"
