4Control System

4Control System

Four-wheel steering for even greater precision

First introduced on Mégane GT, and available on Mégane R.S. and Mégane R.S. Trophy, the 4Control System is an innovative, electronically-controlled feature that allows the rear wheels to turn in the opposite direction to the front wheels.

The settings defined by the Renault Sport engineers provide sporty, dynamic and precise handling on corners, delivering an unprecedented driving experience and feeling behind the wheel.

Operation on Mégane GT

On Mégane GT, when driving at under 80kph in Sport mode and under 60kph in the other modes, the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction to the front wheels. The car handles as if it had a shorter wheelbase, offering more precise and dynamic handling. Above these speeds, the rear wheels turn in the same direction as the front wheels. This system therefore improves cornering stability.

Furthermore, the Sport mode enables the steering wheel angle to be reduced by 40% compared with a Mégane not equipped with the 4Control system. Combined with the steering set-up, accelerator pedal mapping, and engine and gearbox configuration, these settings enable drivers to adopt a dynamic, yet controlled style.

Operation on Mégane R.S. and Mégane R.S. Trophy

On Mégane R.S. and Mégane R.S. Trophy, the configuration has been revised to provide an even more efficient driving experience, giving drivers the feeling that the car is glued to the road.

At low speeds (under 60kph or 100kph in Race mode), the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction to the front wheels, up to a maximum angle of 2.7 degrees. On twisty, winding roads, the 20% more direct steering gives Mégane R.S. and Mégane R.S. Trophy a "playful" side that is unprecedented on a front-wheel drive car.

At high speeds, all four wheels turn in the same direction, with a limit of a one-degree angle at the rear. Perfectly aligned, the rear wheels deliver increased stability and a more comfortable driving experience, even when adopting a sporty style.
