Those few buyers still interested in FWD convertibles should appreciate that the Megane now has a new front bumper, new headlights, air vents, a sculpted hoot with creases flowing towards the pillars and a bigger Renault logo flanked by a wide, dark polished grille.

The coupe, hatch and estate also share its features, so Renault decided to make it special by giving the drop-top a contrasting black roof, standard across the range.

“By adopting the new visual identity, we have given Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet a look in harmony with the brand’s other cars. The aim with this new design was to preserve the specific features of Mégane Coupé- Cabriole: harmonious lines and a cabriolet look even in the coupé version,” says Jean-Phillipe Texier, Design Project Leader, Range M1.

Three engine choices are going to be offered with the Megane CC facelift, two diesels and one petrol. The dCi 110 diesel 1.5-liter and the dCi 130 with a 1.6-liter displacement are already familiar to us.

What's not familiar is the TCE 130, which is not the old 1.4-liter, which has been replaced, but a newer 1.2-liter turbo available starting mid-2014. This has 10 extra horsepower than has been available so far in the Megane and the Captur. The engine will come with an overboost function which for short periods of time will offer 20 Nm of extra torque for spirited overtaking.

Paired to this engine is the efficient dual-clutch (EDC) six-speed automatic gearbox, allowing for 0 to 100 km/h to happen in just 9.5 seconds CO2 emissions as low as 129 grams and combined-cycle consumption of 5.6 l/100 km.
