Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet

The original Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet set a trend for affordable coupe convertibles and while it was more cruiser than a sports car it had a gallic flair that made it look and feel rather more special than the average hatchback. The third generation convertible follows in its footsteps and builds on all areas with a new chassis and up-to-date styling. The huge two-piece glass panoramic roof gives the interior light airy feel and with a new glass wind deflector the journeys are less blustery. Renault obviously invested a good bit of time fine tuning the Megane’s aerodynamics to reduce wind noise and turbulence. The car’s ride is refined and there is room in the back for adults at least for short journeys.

Sold in a dizzying selection of different engine and trim variations the range was reduced to the most economical options as the car reached the end of its lifespan.

Renault Megane 1.2 TCe 130 Coupe-Cabriolet

Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet benefits from one of a new generation of engines that is both small and efficient while remaining peppy and refined. The 1.2 litre petrol unit will for most drivers be the best in the range. Only those who do particularly high milages will benefit from the diesel's economy and as a result will have to put up with the resulting engine noise at low speeds. The 1.2 on the other hand feels willing in all gears, is smooth and quiet and has great economy figures.

Renault Megane 1.6 110 Coupe-Cabriolet

The base model Renault Megane CC 1.6 offers a lot of car for fairly little money. The 1.6 litre engine has to be worked hard to make good progress and the 1.2 litre turbo that replaced it is both better to drive and more economical. Despite this, the Renault megane CC 1.6 is a fine relaxed summer cruiser with handsome French style.

Renault Megane GT TCe 180 Coupe-Cabriolet

The turbo-charged two litre engine suits the Megane Cabriolet well with plenty of low down power to get this heavy car moving. The GT is the sportiest car in the range but it is still best enjoyed when cruising rather than being thrown around bends. It isn't as performance focussed as its BMW 1-Series and Audi A3 Convertible rivals but does have the luxury of a glass folding hardtop.

Renault Megane 1.5 dCi 110 Coupe-Cabriolet

While the smaller diesel engine in the 1.5 dCi Renault Megane CC doesn't really have the power to make things exciting it is particularly frugal and has minimal emissions. Those looking for a bit more go should take a look at the more powerful options.

Renault Megane 1.6 dCi 130 Coupe-Cabriolet

There isn't a massive difference between the 1.5 and 1.6 Diesel engines in the range but this one in the Renault Megane 1.6 dCi 130 Coupe-Cabriolet is both more powerful and a touch more efficient than its slightly cheaper sister. It makes sense if your budget runs to it as the extra go makes overtaking that bit more comfortable. The 1.6 replaces the old 1.9 and benefits from modern design to optimise the output of the small engine.

Renault Megane 1.6 dCi 130 Coupe-Cabriolet

At launch, the Renault Megane CC dCi 130 was the more powerful of the two diesel cars and was all the better for it. It is quiet and smooth enough when getting up to speed that you don't really know it is there. The fuel economy figures are good but not as impressive as some of the high efficiency engine that replaced it, but they are a good bit better than the petrol cars in the range.

Renault Megane 1.4 TCe 130 Coupe-Cabriolet

The smallest engine in the launch range actually suits to the Renault Megane CC rather well. The turbo-charged 1.4 litre engine has just enough low down power to keep the smart looking Megane wafting along but has no pretensions of being a sports car. Replaced equally powerful yet more efficient 1.2 TCe 130.
