2017 Renault Megane Sedan

Intra-brand rivalries can be fun. Comparing the top-spec variant of one model in a manufacturer’s line-up with the entry-level version of another, can often deliver interesting outcomes. And when the gap between them, in sheer dollar terms anyway, is rather close, things can be even more interesting.
Just like the 2014 Seat Leon SC Cupra 280, the Megane 275 Trophy is an amazingly quick hot hatch and, as of 2014, the fastest front-wheel-drive vehicle around the Nurburgring track. At least the limited-edition Trophy-R is, because the regular production model is a bit heavier and lacks some of the racing goodies that come with the “R” badge. Either way, the 275 Trophy is the race-bred hatch the Volkswagen Golf R isn’t, although the German isn’t bad either. There are a lot of cool cars we’re not getting here in the United States for one reason or another, and the 2014 Renault Megane 275 Trophy is one of them.
