Home / Automotive / Cars / Renault Confirms A Dual-clutch For New M`gane Rs


The new Renault Mégane RS has made another appearance - again with the disguise of camouflage - and the French automaker has confirmed that the next-generation hot hatch will be offered with a choice of manual or dual-clutch transmissions!

This decision to add an EDC option "to meet customer demand".

The Boulogne-Billancourt-based automaker didn't provide much information, besides the fact that it would be officially unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and sales will kick off in the first quarter of 2018.

"We aim to make the new Mégane R.S. the new compact sports car benchmark", says Patrice Ratti, managing director of Renault Sports Cars.

Even though the car is disguised with camouflage, it is clear that the car will have the distinctive chequered flag lighting signature first seen in the Clio RS.

Reports claim that it will remain front-wheel drive with power coming from either a fresh 2,0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine or the 1,8-litre mill from the new Alpine A110.
