The heart of the new Renault Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet, which is on the A utosalon Geneva is celebrating its public premiere, is the retractable panoramic glass roof, which can be raised at the push of a button within 21 Seconds electrohydraulically folded in the trunk. The conversion back to a coupé also takes place at the push of a button and without any further action on the part of the driver, and the roof is locked automatically.

The new Renault Mégane Coupé-Cabrio will start in June 2010

Renault speaks at the new Mégane Coupé-Cabrio from a completely newly developed model in which the torsional stiffness has been increased by 80 percent. The windshield moved ten centimeters forward compared to its predecessor. The chrome-plated windshield frame creates a visual contrast to the dark-tinted glass roof. The wind deflector installed behind the two rear seats should represent a novelty in this segment. It is supposed to protect the two passengers in the rear seats with the roof open up to a speed of 90 km /h from disturbing drafts. The Mégane Coupé-Cabrio offers space for up to four people and 417 liters of luggage. The trunk volume is reduced to 211 liters with the roof closed. Thanks to the 59 centimeter low loading sill, loading and unloading should be particularly easy.

A total of four engines are available for the market launch in June. The basic gasoline engine makes 110 hp from 1.6 liters of displacement. The 1.4-liter turbo with 130 hp ranks above this. Both engines are linked to a manual six-speed gearbox as standard. The two-liter 16V with 140 hp is only available with a continuously variable CVT transmission. With the revised 1.9-liter turbodiesel dCi 130 FAP, there is also a 130 hp compression-ignition engine to choose from, with a soot particle filter as standard. Here, the gears are also sorted by a manual six-speed gearbox as standard.

The McPherson front axle of the Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet has a newly designed subframe, which should ensure three times the rigidity of its predecessor. The newly developed power steeringshould now respond more quickly and give the driver more precise feedback.

ESP, an automatically deploying roll bar, adaptive front and side airbags and the so-called anti-submarining airbags, which are intended to prevent slipping under the lap belt, ensure the necessary safety on board. Bi-xenon headlights with dynamic cornering lights are optionally available for the new Renault Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet.

Renault has not yet wanted to name prices for the new convertible.
