225Renowned for providing the ultimate in high performance driving pleasure, the Renaultsport badge on the back of a car means you can expect class-topping levels of performance and excitement. The Mégane 225 fits between the two Clios offering top-notch performance in a refined car that can be enjoyed every day of the year no matter what the roads or conditions, not just on the occasional visit to a racing track.

With a new 2-litre turbocharged four cylinder engine developing 225hp at 5,500rpm and 300Nm of torque providing horizon-shrinking power at only 3,000rpm, the Mégane 225 has a top speed of 147mph and 0-62mph is dispatched in just 6.5 seconds.

225-gridProving the efficiency of this Renaultsport developed turbo-charged engine are fuel consumption figures that are the best in class – Urban driving 24.6mpg, Extra urban 40.4mpg and Combined cycle of 32.1mpg.

Equipment levels are also class-leading so that when you’re not attacking the twisty backroads, you can revel in the comfort and refinement provided by the air-conditioning, cruise control with speed-limiter (could be very useful!), six-disc CD multi-changer and part leather upholstery.
