The new Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet completes the renewal of the Renault Megane family. This now comprises six body types, the successive launches of which have seen Renault rejuvenate its range in the space of just one and a half years in what is Europe's largest volume segment.
The Renault Megane family held third place in its segment in Europe at the end of 2009, and enjoyed number one position in France. With sales totalling over 170,000 since the launch of the first-generation version, Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet accounts for four per cent of the Renault Megane family mix and, in 2009, continued to represent one sale in 10 in Western Europe's compact cabriolet segment.
The new Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet builds on the strengths that helped forge the success of its predecessor. It brings head-turning looks, plus a genuine sense of freedom thanks to its panoramic glass roof and the forward position of its windscreen. Its standard fixed glass wind deflector reduces turbulence to maximise the pleasure of al fresco motoring.
The new Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet is made at Renault's Douai plant, in northern France, alongside the Renault Scenic and Renault Grand Scenic. It benefits from the significant production expertise gained by this factory since the launch of the first Renault Megane Cabriolet in 1997.
The new Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet is an open invitation to enjoy open-top motoring, and is an elegant illustration of Renault's new brand signature, 'Drive the Change'.
