Renaultsport Megane 250 Cup vs R26R - Auto Express
There's no denying Renault is on a roll when it comes to hot hatches. With
its rapid Renaultsport badged models, the French firm has taken the pocket
rocket class by storm. We put the latest Megane 250 Cup up against it's
predecessor, the extreme Renaultsport Megane R26R.

The Volkswagen Golf GTI and Renaultsport Megane are two very different hot
hatches. The French machine is all about uncompromised performance, whereas
the German hatch is much more of an all-rounder. But does this mean the
Renault Megane RS will always be faster on a racetrack?
Well, that's not necessarily true. The Golf GTI in our video has been
fitted with the Performance Pack, getting bigger brakes, a power upgrade to
take the 2.0-litre engine up to 230bhp and a very clever electronic front
The Renault Megane RS Cup has a traditional limited-slip diff, but also has
a 2.0-litre turbo engine. However the
Renault has 265bhp - 35 more than the Golf.
For several years Renaultsport has been the 'master-craftsman' of the hot
hatch trade. I know it's getting a bit long in the tooth but the Cup Megane
is the best car they make. But what's it like on track? Is it going to be
quick enough to take on the new Golf GTI with the Performance Pack? You can
find out in the video above.
We're driving the car with the stability control turned off, which is what
gives this car a big advantage on the track - when it's off, it is off.
Plus, there's an instant liveliness to the Megane chassis, at the rear end.
The Renault completed the flying lap in 1 minute 14.3 seconds. Can the
lower-powered and easier to live with Golf get anywhere near that mark?
There's no question that the Golf GTI is the most desirable hot hatch you
can buy, but there has always been two camps in the hot hatch market: those
who want the all-rounder (which is the GTI) and those who want the
hardcore, ultimate track car (which arguably is the Renaultsport Megane).
The question is whether this GTI with the Performance Pack and a manual
gearbox can outperform the Renault Megane. It's a shame you can't turn off
the stability control because it starts to come into play and that
contributes to the brakes getting hot and just takes away that final edge
of freedom you need to make this car fully engaging like the Renault.
The Golf GTI performance pack completed the flying lap in 1 minute 15.6
seconds. In the end the Golf GTI Performance Pack was 1.3 seconds a lap
slower than the Megane RS Cup, so even though VW has added extra
performance to the car, if it's quick laps you're after, the Renaultsport
Megane is still number one.

The new Vauxhall Astra VXR and it's most powerful front-wheel-drive hot
hatch currently one sale because under the bonnet there's a 2.0-litre turbo with 276bhp that's good for 0-62mph
in just 5.9 seconds.
The VXR is based on beautiful Astra GTC which is a very good starting
point. However, Vauxhall has beefed it up with a muscular body kit, huge
alloy wheels and a rear spoiler. There's also a mechanical limited slip
differential for improved traction when exciting corners while Vauxhall's
HiPer Strut front suspension is designed to quell torque steer.
Present it! The Opel Astra OPC | Drive it!
Models souped up at the Opel Performance Center bear the OPC badge. The
Opel Astra OPC is the high-performance version of the already rather sporty
