RenaultSport has developed a limited version of Megane Estate GT that comes with a 2.0 Turbo engine borrowed from Megane RS. The special edition will be available in many markets across Europe.
Renault Megane RS is a genuine hot-hatch and RenaultSport division, responsible for its existence, decided to develop a special version of Megane Estate. The result is called RenaultSport Megane Estate GT 220. The new variant comes with a less powerful version of the 2 liter Turbo engine from Megane RS, with 220 hp and 340 Nm.
The model is equipped with a six-speed manual transmission. Representatives from Renault announced that the model will be sold in 12 markets across the world, France being on top of this list. If Renault would have used the standard engine found on Megane RS, they would have obtained the most powerful compact station wagon in the world, surpassing the ST version of the Ford Focus Wagon, which develops 250 hp.
“Megane Estate GT 220 is proof that a car can be practical and still provide amazing performance. It has all the qualities of a sports car, but answering all customers needs each day .” Jean-Maxime Boulanger, Product Manager at RenaultSport.
Renault has not announced many details regarding Megane Estate GT 220’s performance, but the French say the model has a combined consumption of 7.3 liters /100km. and emits 169 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
Compared to Renault Megane Estate standard, it comes with a calibrated suspension, a more efficient braking system, a recalibrated power steering and factory tires taken from Megane RS Coupe.
