The Premium Auto Car Expo (PACE) is back this year from November 2-3, 2019 from 9.00 am until 7.00 pm at the Setia Alam Convention Centre with co-sponsors Michelin and TyrePlus.

Are you a fan of high-performance hatchbacks? Great news, for not only will the Renault Megane RS 280 Cup be at the expo, the French hot hatch will be offered with up to RM15,000 in overtrade value on your current car, alongside current deals on offer when you buy a car at PACE 2019. In Malaysia, the Megane RS 280 Cup is priced from RM279,888, and if you prefer two pedals, the EDC version starts from RM299,888.

The 1.8 litre turbo four petrol engine sends 280 PS and 390 Nm of torque to the front wheels via a Torsen limited-slip differential, attaining the 0-100 km/h sprint in 5.8 seconds and a top speed of 255 km/h for the manual transmission model and 250 km/h for the EDC dual-clutch automatic.

Handling prowess comes courtesy of the Cup chassis which consists of four rally-style hydraulic compression bump stops, while the front suspension gets an independent steering axis for better precision, and the 4Control four-wheel steering system adds even more agility. Braking is handled by Brembo calipers on aluminium/cast-iron discs measuring 355 mm in front.

The French brand is one of several premium makes that will also be taking part in PACE 2019, and Renault will be joined by Audi, BMW, Bufori, Harley-Davidson, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Subaru, Volkswagen and Volvo. At PACE, you’ll be able to drive and purchase your dream car – new or pre-owned, we’ve got you covered. Not only will you get to enjoy irresistible year-end promos from brands present at the show, you’ll even be able to mingle with us, the writers!
