Cover blows off Renault Wind


Renault will introduce a new coupe-convertible at the Geneva Motor Show called the Wind

The two-seat Renault Wind will join the four-seat Megane drop-top when they are introduced next month.

Autocar reports that the Wind will be launched with the 100hp 1.2-litre engine from the Twingo GT, and the 1.6-litre 133hp engine from the Renaultsport Twingo.

The car has a new bumper, and a recessed hood. It has a roof that folds to an open position in 12 seconds. The luggage compartment will be 270 litres, and will not be disturbed by the top. 

At 3830mm the Wind is 5mm shorter than the Peugeot 206CC, scheduled to be discontinued this year, and 207mm shorter than the 207CC.
