Ah, the first big new car of 2018. You could say that. We hardly need to flag up the significance of a hot new Renault, not least as a counterpoint to an industry-wide obsession with cars that a) don’t have proper engines and b) drive themselves. There’s extra context here, too, amid the need for some brand salvation: RenaultSport fumbled the latest Clio 200, and doesn’t want to perform the same reverse magic trick with the Megane RS. It’s a special car, isn’t it? Yes, and believe it or not, it’s been around for 15 years, the two previous generations spawning various era-defining special editions that genuinely re-set our expectations when it came to (relatively) affordable fast cars.
