Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Review | Part TwoRenault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Road Test

The Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet was launched in the UK in July 2010 and completed the new Megane model line-up. The new design retains the signature Karmann designed panoramic dark-tinted folding roof which is the largest in the segment.

Prices range from £20,340 for the entry-level 1.6 litre 110 bhp Dynamic TomTom model to £24,825 for the range topping 2.0 litre dCi 160 FAP GT Line TomTom model.

We tested the Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Dynamic TomTom 1.9 litre dCi 130 FAP (£22,100) coupled to the 6-speed manual gearbox.

Performance

The revised 1.9 130 FAP engine is smooth, eager and revs freely, the maximum power output of 130hp is delivered at 3,750rpm with maximum torque of 300Nm available at 1,750rpm. The 0-62mph sprint is completed in 10.6 seconds and the top speed is 127mph.

Technical modifications made to the engine offer improved dynamic and acoustic performance and we found the diesel engine relatively quiet and once on the move you could hardly tell that it was a diesel.

Fuel economy is good with the Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Dynamic TomTom 1.9 litre dCi 130 FAP returning 48.7mpg on the combined cycle. The quoted figures for the urban and extra-urban fuel economy are 39.8mpg and 56.5mpg respectively.

The 6-speed manual gearbox is slick making precise gear changes easy.
