PARIS, France - Renault’s renewal of its range continues with the introduction of the latest Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet with the brand’s new styling identity and the option of an R-Link connected multimedia system.

The cars will first go on sale in Belgium in January 2014 to coincide with the Brussels auto show the from March be sold in nearly 20 other markets as far afield as Australia - which, unfortunately, does not include South Africa.

Renault says the convertible "is dynamic, its elegant stance further enhanced by a new bumper which incorporates a bigger Renault logo set to a gloss black background".


Meanwhile, just as with most of the Renault line-up, the connected Renault R-Link multimedia system is now available for the Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet, either as an option or standard equipment some models.

This fully-connected system comes with a smart, chrome-trimmed 18cm display which functions in association with a joystick on the centre console.

The car continues to be equipped with the coupé segment’s biggest glass roof. Top down, the vehicle ensures an inimitable open-air experience without the drawbacks.

Its standard fixed glass wind deflector, claimed to be unique in the segment, minimises turbulence to provide maximum comfort for four passengers at up to 90km/h. A removable (optional) mesh deflector screen allows two occupants up front to benefit from its extra protection against buffeting at all speeds.
