Renault drops top on new Megane

For 2011, Renault is launching an all-new version of its Megane coupe-convertible at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show. Like the outgoing model and most of its European market competitors, the Megane gets a folding hardtop, but this one will let the sun shine in even when closed. The Megane receives an all-glass roof, which is great for seeing the stars but will do little to help the car’s center of gravity. The new Megane won’t be a totally high-performance machine, so the extra weight in the roof won’t bother many potential customers.

To its credit, Renault has managed to retain a surprisingly large boot on the Megane. The Megane has seven powertrain configurations available for its European launch with six gas and diesel engines combined with manual, dual clutch and continuously variable transmissions.

The new Megane coupe-convertible goes on sale in Europe around May.
