Renault has released a teaser image of its forthcoming Megane RS hot hatch and in the words of Renault Sport, it’s “coming soon 2017”.
The new Renault Megane RS is expected to be revealed later this year, possibly at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, and it will rival the lauded Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport and Honda Civic Type R in the hot hatch stakes.
Renault Sport recently achieved 1 million likes on Facebook and released a retrospective video to celebrate the occasion (see the video below). At the end of the video, the new Megane RS can be seen under a cover showing its LED headlight signature as well as the chequered flag lighting elements in the lower bumper, as seen on the facelifted Clio RS.
The new Megane RS will be a 5-door model and will likely be powered by a new turbocharged 2.0-litre engine or the same 1.8-litre turbocharged engine found in the Alpine A110, which was recently revealed at the Geneva Motor Show.
Further details will be revealed in due course and we will keep you updated as more information becomes available. For now though, check out this cool video released by Renault Sport.
