megane renaultsport 2010

To follow up on Paul’s earlier post about the Megane RenaultSport, we can expect that it will be brought in to replace the R26. Renault distributor in Malaysia, TC Euro Cars put up a teaser ad in Autocar ASEAN showing the new hot Megane’s face along with a ‘2010’ headline. When it arrives, the 250bhp Megane will play in the same park as the Volkswagen Scirocco since both manufacturers bill their three-door hatchbacks as ‘coupes’. It should be a fine driver’s car too, if the R26 is any indication. Will we be too greedy to ask for the new Clio RenaultSport as well?

According to our sources, another possible new addition to the local lineup is the Renault Laguna Coupe. Looking like a baby Aston Martin is all well and good, but let’s hope that prices won’t stray too far from the BMW 3-Series coupe, which the Renault undercuts in Europe.
