Looking Forward To Renault Summer Fun

Geoff Maxted

Renault Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet
At this time of year when the weather is dank and the days dark; when Christmas is looming in on you and the economic situation in your house is a breaking point, it is nice to think that someone, somewhere is basking in the sun.

Although it is hard to imagine, it is a fact that we are only a few short months away from our glorious British Springtime, so why not take time to perk up and think about getting your top off.

Renault’s renewal of its range continues with the introduction of a new Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet. The latest version of the model features the brand’s new styling identity and can now be specified with the Renault R-Link connected multimedia system. The front end styling embodies Renault’s acclaimed new design philosophy, and with the top down, the new Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet ensures a unique al fresco motoring experience.

The latest Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet will initially go on sale in Belgium, in January, at the same time as the 2014 Brussels Motor Show. I have been to Belgium in January and the prospects aren’t good, but, allowing for a waiting list, the first cars should be delivered as the sun breaks through over the hallowed tarmac of Spa-Francorchamps. It will then be available from March in more than 15 other markets.

After the renewed Mégane Hatchback, Mégane Coupé and Mégane Estate, it is now the turn of the Coupé-Cabriolet to feature Renault’s new family traits. Its dynamic, elegant stance has been further enhanced by a new bumper which incorporates a bigger Renault logo set to a gloss black background.

Meanwhile, just as it is for the majority of the Renault line-up, the connected Renault R-Link multimedia system is now available for this cabriolet, either as an option or as standard equipment in the case of certain versions. This fully-connected system comes with a smart, chrome-trimmed seven-inch display which functions in association with a centre console-mounted joystick.

The Cabriolet continues to be equipped with the coupé segment’s biggest panoramic glass roof. 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 90kph. The new Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet can also be ordered with an optional removable mesh deflector screen that allows two occupants traveling alone to benefit from extra protection against buffeting at all speeds. Rejoice. It’s the first sign of Summer.
