Renault reveals the new convertible Mégane


Renault is launching an all-new version of its Megane coupe-convertible at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show for 2011

Like its predecessor, the Mégane coupe-convertible gets a folding hardtop roof, but this time it is all glass.

The fully automatic glazed folding glass roof covers an area of 0.47 square metres and is accessed with the touch of a button which lowers the two-piece roof in about 21 seconds.

A fixed glass wind deflector ensures minimal cabin wind intrusion and works for speeds up to 90kmh. For greater velocities a removable mesh deflector can be added.

Among the exterior features are directional bi-Xenon headlamps with cornering dipped beams and dark red taillights with LED brake lights. The interior boasts technologies such as a Carminat Tomtom satellite navigation system, USB connection, 3D sound and an electronic parking brake.

Three petrol and three diesel engine will be offered, including a TCe 130 with a 6-speed manual gearbox, a 2.0 16V 140 PS (138 bhp / 103kW) mated to a CVT transmission and a dCi 110 DPF paired with Renault's new double clutch gearbox.

The new Mégane coupe-convertible goes on sale in Europe around May.
