This is the old Megane… Well, yeah. We’ve driven the all-new Renault Megane in its sensible guises. But the Renaultsport version is still well over a year away, and in the meantime, Renault has rejigged the range of the current RS. The result is this entry-level Megane 275 Cup-S, with a tantalising £23,935 price. That pegs it halfway between a Fiesta ST and Focus RS. The Focus RS that’s the best hot hatch on sale? Well, it’s not far off. But it’s also four-wheel drive and has nearly 350bhp, taking it far away from the humble roots of the hot hatchback. The Megane keeps it more traditional with front-wheel drive and a slightly more modest 271bhp. Though given it weighs 150 kilos less than the Focus, it’s nearly as swift. How swift?
