    Honda has been talking highly of its upcoming Civic Type R , Seat set enthusiasts alight with its Nurburgring record-breaking Leon Cupra and Renault reclaimed its title for the fastest front-wheel-drive around the German circuit — with thanks to the harcore two-seat Megane RS Trophy-R.

    It seemed fitting then to spend a week or so in the entry-level performance French three-door, the Renault Megane RS Cup. It may surprise few, but I like cars.

    And I like driving even more. Tony and I have previously had arguments about which is better, a manual gearbox or a paddle-shifted transmission , but needless to say, I was rapt to be steering a manual-only car particularly one with as big a reputation as the Megane RS.

    I love good front-wheel-drive cars as much as I love good rear-wheel-drive ones. And the Renault Megane RS — with its limited-slip front differential and Cup chassis — is most definitely one of the former.

    It comes standard with dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, satellite navigation, automatic headlights and wipers, and inch alloy wheels.

    Considering all are essentially based on the same model that first debuted at the Geneva motor show , the Liquid Yellow starting point pictured here already seems like a relatively smart purchase… provided you do indeed like to drive that is.

    Sharing the love is the next port of call. We cruise back into Berwick discussing the likelihood of either of us ever buying a French car…. A loveable little character, the Megane RS can be a bit of a pain to live with day-to-day in a number of respects. Revs rise, steering gets heavier, exhaust noise from the back end gets a little louder and, crucially, throttle response becomes sharper. Team this with a super-low clutch take-up point and a springy third pedal and taking off smoothly — and avoiding awkward stalls — requires some learning.

    The four steering wheel-mounted cruise control buttons, however, are smart and intuitive, along with being inboard enough of the wheel rim that they stay out of the way when steering with purpose. Another day, another drive. This time Healsville and beyond is the target, with the always breathtaking Black Spur making up a key part of the excursion. Traversing through the exquisite rainforest landscape dominated by sky-high trees and low-lying ferns, the Renault Megane RS yet again cements its place as one of the best of its kind in terms of sheer dynamic ability and thrills.

    Brilliantly engaging and ludicrously entertaining, the RS is a superb package when it comes to driving with conviction. The recipe for smiles is simple: Keep vision up, spot the next bend and repeat. Despite its taught nature though, things rarely become crashy. Undulations, particularly repeated ones, can, however, get the RS feeling a little unsettled and out of sorts — particularly at higher speeds. Effective and solid in most all situations, the good looking four-piston Brembo brakes can run out of bite and become a bit soft when enthusiastically shifting the kg Megane around.
