Renault tarts up Mégane and adds an 80mpg version

Mark Nichol

Renault HQ is killing off a load of its models and dealerships in order to save money, but the bread and butter Mégane is as safe as a joke on CBeebies.

The image above is of the new Renaultsport Mégane 265, which, you can probably work out from the name, gets an extra 15bhp over the old RS 250. It gets a little more torque too, and a more free-flowing exhaust, so it's louder.
