New 271bhp 275 Nav model replaces the old 265, and will go on sale in November
1 September 2015

Renault is boosting the power and cutting the starting price of the Mégane Renaultsport for the 2016 model year.

The cheapest Mégane Renaultsport model available now is the 275 Cup-S, which not only gets a boost of 10bhp to 271bhp compared with the outgoing 265 model but also now starts at £23,935.

As with previous Renault 
Cup models, the new version comes with an uprated chassis that features stiffer suspension. It also gets a mechanical limited-slip differential, red brake calipers and a stiffer anti-roll bar.

These tweaks come in exchange for some of the higher-level equipment, such as satellite navigation, rear parking sensors and camera, auto lights and wipers and 
dual-zone climate control.

The 275 Nav gets all of this and directly replaces the old 265. The pricing is unchanged from the previous version’s and starts at £24,935.

Deliveries will start at the beginning of November. These models now form run-out special editions for the current Megane RS, with an all-new Megane set to be unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show later this month.
