New look Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet to be unveiled at Brussels Motor Show in January

Following the facelifted Megane range, unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, Renault has released the first picture and details of the revised Megane Coupe-Cabriolet.

• Renault Megane review

Set to be shown in public for the first time at the Brussels Motor Show next month, the new convertible Megane features the same tweaked front-end styling as the rest of the Megane range. This incorporates new swept-back headlights, a larger Renault diamond logo and a new front bumper design.

Inside, the Coupe-Cabriolet gets Renault’s R-Link infotainment system as standard. This includes a chrome-rimmed seven-inch display which works in conjunction with a centre console-mounted joystick.

R-Link includes support for a number of apps, including one for e-mail and weather forecasts, and can be downloaded from the Renault R-Link store.

As before, the Coupe-Cabriolet is fitted with a folding hard-top roof that includes a large panoramic glass panel. A glass wind deflector is included as standard, which Renault claims “minimises turbulence to provide maximum comfort for four passengers when travelling at speeds of up to 55mph.”

As an option, you can spec a further removable mesh deflector screen which clips in above the rear seats that further reduces buffeting at all speeds.

UK price and specifications will be announced shortly, and sales are due to begin in March.

I like the Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet facelift

I was hoping to see a return of the soft top here. I find hard top models lack character, with an exception given to most 2 seater varieties.

The current Megane along with focus and Astra variants look so awkward and unnatural.

I do like the new front end but i'm sure we'll get see the ungainly hefty rear before long.

5 out of 10 for me!
