2019 Renault Megane RS280 vs Volkswagen Golf GTI performance comparison review

Volkswagen isn’t a brand to take things lying down, though, and just months later we have a heavily updated, MY19 GTI that adopts some key kit from the former, limited-run GTI Performance. While the GTI is DSG-only now (owing to the new WLTP fuel cycle causing some chaos among European manufacturers), those MY19 changes make for a worthwhile rematch. When Renault revealed its new 2019 Megane RS with five doors and automatic transmission, we wondered if they were hiding the three-door manual one behind a curtain. But they were not – instead, they had taken the Megane RS in a more sensible direction. And sensible is not what we are used to thinking of Renault Sport.
