The new Renault Sport Megane hot hatchback will be available with four-wheel steering as well as a choice of two different chassis.

According to the French manufacturer, its 4Control four-wheel steering technology promises drivers "enhanced agility, cornering performance and steering precision".


The system works by allowing the Megane's rear wheels to assist the front in steering by making use of an electromagnetic actuator that sits on the rear axle.

Renault claims its engineers have "specifically calibrated the system to take the car's performance to new limits thanks to exceptional agility and cornering at higher speeds".

Customers will also be able to choose from two different chassis with the new Renault Sport Megane.

The first – known as the Sport chassis – is claimed to strike a balance high performance and ride comfort during every-day driving.

The Cup chassis is a more hard-core proposition, and has been designed to provide the "ultimate track performance experience".

Although the Renault Sport Megane is yet to be revealed in full, a camouflaged version of the hot hatch has made a public debut at the 2017 Monaco Grand Prix.

Renault Formula One driver Niko Hulkenberg took to the famed circuit in the car, but to date this is the only time the hot Megane has been seen in public.

The Renault Sport Megane will be unveiled in full at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
