New 1.8-Litre Turbo Direct Injection engine

Introduced on the Mégane R.S., the new 1.8-litre turbo direct injection engine has been upgraded to answer the needs of the all-new Mégane R.S. Trophy. This version develops a power output of 300hp and torque of 400Nm on the manual gearbox version and even as high as 420Nm on the EDC dual-clutch version.
The increased power delivers better acceleration, including at high revs, whilst the torque contributes to driving pleasure and comfort behind the wheel.

Components taken from the world of Formula 1


In order to offset the substantial increase in exhaust back pressure, Renault Sport concentrated on the efficiency of the turbocharger by deploying a technology taken directly from Renault F1 Team.
The turbine is therefore now fitted on a ceramic ball bearing system. Lighter, harder and smoother than steel, ceramic helps reduce friction. In fact, this technology divides friction levels by three compared with a traditional ball bearing system. The result? A significant reduction in the response time of the turbo.
