Renault’s new Megane Coupe-Cabriolet
To be unveiled January 2014
Renault is set to unveil the new Coupe-Cabriolet in January 2014 at the Brussels Motor Show. This latest version of the model features the brand’s new styling identity and Renault R-link connected multimedia system as standard.
Specification will be announced nearer to the date the new model goes on sale which will be March. The exterior has been enhanced by a new bumper which incorporates the new distinctive Renault diamond set to a gloss black background plus the model features Renault’s new family traits. It boasts the largest panoramic glass roof in its segment, with the top down the vehicle ensures an inimitable open-air experience without the drawbacks. Its standard fixed glass wind deflector, which is ‘unique’ in the segment, minimises turbulence to provide maximum comfort for four passengers when travelling at speeds of up to 55 mph. The new Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet can also be ordered with an optional removable mesh deflector screen that allows two occupants travelling alone to benefit from extra protection against buffeting at all speeds.
The connected Renault R-Link multimedia system is now standard on the full UK line-up of Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet. This fully-connected system comes with a smart, chrome-trimmed seven-inch (18cm) display which functions in association with a centre console-mounted joystick. A line-up of connected applications, such as e-mail or weather forecasts, is also available through the R-Link store.
If you are not looking for a cabriolet, Renault do have a huge range of cars to suit all ages and needs, the best selling model is the Renault Clio, this attracts huge interest as there is a free insurance offer, which is also available on the Twingo. This offer is due to end shortly so you need to be quick! The Clio can be customised with a range of interior and exterior Touch Packs and stylish roof decals. This popular supermini also features R-Link multimedia system, climate control and heated front seats. Powering each model is a range of impressive downsized engines, ranging from the punchy but frugal petrol 1.2 16V 75, 0.9-litre TCe 90 and 1.2 TCe 120 with EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) transmission, to the refined diesel 1.5-litre dCi 90. Two sportier models will appeal to the younger generation; the exciting new GT-Line and Renaultsport 200 Turbo EDC versions of Clio. The Clio GT-Line is the first Renault to feature the all-new direct-injection turbocharged 1.2 TCe 120 engine, and is competitively priced from £17,395.
