  1. I'm a type r fan myself 🙂 but I have to say I like most things about this Megane rs including the fact that they will use 4 wheel steering and a 1.8 turbo engine which adds a bit of depth to the hot hatch market. The only thing I don't like looks wise are the daylight runner part of the headlights. I'm not sure if it would be at a disadvantage in terms of aero in comparison to an fk8 type r however they will have the 4 wheel steering mechanism as well to play with. Being a smaller displacement than most of its competition it may lack in torque but since there are no official curb weight it's hard to tell whether all that weight saving (I.e the engine) will be enough. It's good that they are bringing it out in both manual and automatic to suit varying consumer requirements and also that they are bringing out a tame, more elegant looking version and a separate trophy version for us hardcore nuts, something I was hoping they would do with the fk8 type r. I can see why the fk8 has a comfort mode and electric handbrake introduced but I mean that should be the non GT trim and the GT trim should be as hardcore as a type R was born and bred to be.
    Having said all that You guys should bring a video out of the Megane rs, cupra r, clubsport s gti and fk8 type r (and any other fwd competitor I may have missed) running on track to compare lap times, then a drag and roll race. Preferably all cars to be manual to give an accurate comparison please 😉 thanks. (P.s. Try and pick a dry day lol)

  2. £30,000 is just stupid. You can get a BMW M140i for that, which is a straight six 3.0L engine with a lot more power and torque, not to mention quality in terms of the car itself. Better badge too.

    This looks nice but if its £30k you'd be crazy to buy it.

  3. It would’ve been the civic if it weren’t for that ugly rear end
    As for the Megane that front headlight design is a bit too busy, if it was a clean strip similar to Audi’s it would’ve been the prettiest car ever
