For instance, its new front bumper features a Formula One splitter, which can be seen across the Renault Sport range. The Megane R.S. also boasts of features derived from the limited series Mégane R.S. Red Bull Racing RB8.

These features include Recaro seats with dual-fabric leather-cloth upholstery and Renault Sport embroidery on the head restraints as well as the Renault R-Link connected multimedia tablet, with version 2.0 of the R.S.
