Renault Launches Facelifted Megane Coupe-Cabriolet with New Gallery and Videos

Announced in December last year, the cosmetically refreshed Megane Coupe-Cabriolet is now beginning to arrive in dealerships across Europe, with Renault sharing a new batch of photos and a pair of videos of its hardtop convertible with which it completes the light redesign of the Megane family of compact models.

Like the other body styles in the range, the highlights of the facelift are a tweaked front-end with new swept-back headlights, a more prominent diamond logo placed within the new grille and a reworked bumper, and Renault’s new R-Link connected multimedia system that includes a 7-inch touchscreen on the inside.

“By adopting the new visual identity, we have given Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet a look in harmony with the brand’s other cars,” commented Renault designer Jean-Phillipe Texier. “The aim with this new design was to preserve the specific features of Mégane Coupé-Cabriole: harmonious lines and a cabriolet look even in the coupé version.”

Powertrain options for the four-seater model include a 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol producing 130PS (128hp), and two 1.6-liter turbo diesels rated for 110PS (109hp) and 130PS (128hp), with the less powerful unit also available with Renault’s dual-clutch (EDC) automatic gearbox.

As before, the Megane Coupe-Cabriolet has an electrically operated panoramic glass roof – the largest in its segment, according to the French brand.
