Spyshots: 2011 Renault Megane CC
According to initial rumors, the styling of the open top Megane is said to be pretty much similar to the one found on the Hatchback version, likely with the same front fascia. The changes will however be more visible at the rear of the car as, forced by the fact that the CC requires a different approach, the French engineers designed a reworked back end to go with the retractable top.
Not being very keen on investing too much in different versions of the same model, Renault will likely turn to the engine line-up used in your every day Megane. The hatchback is currently offered with a choice of five diesel powertrains and three gasoline units. Bio-fuel versions are also likely.
The top-of-the-range version is the 2.0-liter TCe configuration, that releases 180 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 300 Nm of torque at 2,250 rpm. This means the car is pushed from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds, all the way to a maximum speed of 139.8 mph (225 km/h). Fuel consumption is 23.1 mpg (10.2 L/100Km) city and 38.5 mpg (6.1 L/100Km) highway.
