The article presents information about Renault Mégane Cup car. There was the general consensus about Renault Sport Mégane 225, released in the previous year. Following international criticism, engineers worked on problem areas. The model joining it is firmer, harder and sharper. Mégane 225's electrically assisted steering was lifeless around centre, and had not much feel away from it. Cup loses a flexible joint in the steering shaft, and gets reprogrammed software. The result is more precision and feel through the bend and a bit more weight around centre.
