New model to get Geneva launch; on sale in the spring from £21,000
10 December 2009

These are the first spy shots of the new Renault Megane coupe-cabriolet, which will be launched at next year’s Geneva motor show. It will go on sale in late spring with a price tag of around £21,000.

The cabriolet model will complete the new Megane’s range, after hatchback, coupe, estate and Renaultsport models were all launched this year.

The current cabriolet is still sold in the UK and at one point it was second only to the Mazda MX-5 in terms of units sold. It was one of the first in the C-segment to get a retractable hard-top roof, which has since been introduced on rivals such as the Volkswagen Eos and Ford Focus.

A Renault source told Autocar that the engine range would mirror that of the hatchback and coupe models, and it would also be one the first Renaults to benefit from the firm’s new dual-clutch gearbox.

These spy shots, which show the car winter testing in Sweden, reveal a heavily disguised car and little is given away about the car’s styling. Expect the styling to be akin to the new Megane range, which is heavily toned down from the more radical styling of the previous model.

The Renault Megane looks bland, and it's not that good to drive either
