Mégane II Coupé-Cabriolet

A made-to-measure coupé-cabriolet


New Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet will go on sale in France from autumn 2003. However, it will be possible to place orders via the Renault sales network before the summer. New Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet allows each customer to specify his car "à la carte" by choosing from among 3 trim levels (Authentique, Dynamique or Privilège), 3 equipment levels (Confort, Sport or Luxe) and 3 engines (2 petrol and 1 Diesel), with manual or automatic transmission. Prices for New Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet range from €21,300 to €27,500. First unveiled at the 2003 Geneva Show, New Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet is the fourth body variant to emerge from the Mégane II programme.


3 trim levels, 3 worlds

The coupé-cabriolet range is formed using Renault's across-the-range designations, in particular those of the Mégane II range. The 3 equipment levels are known as Confort, Sportand Luxe. The 3 trim levels are identified as Authentique, Dynamique and Privilège. It should be recalled that the idea of trim level is separate from that of equipment level, this principle having proved successful for the New Mégane range regarding the choice of personalization offered to the customer.

Each trim level is based on details of the exterior (door handles, front and rear bumper protection strips, alloy wheels or wheel trims) and of the interior (upholstery and elements of interior trim) of the car. They divide in two ways, associated with the two colour treatments of the dashboard:

  • carbon trim scheme for the Authentique and Dynamique

  • beige trim scheme for the Privilège

With a dominant colour, deep carbon, the Authentique trim level creates an air of sobriety. The Dynamique trim level evokes technology and masculinity. Specific to New Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet, it creates a strong contrast between the dark carbon background and the touches of light provided by the brushed aluminium console and the satin chrome inserts. Finally, the Privilège trim level, created around a beige background, is synonymous with elegance and refinement.

New Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet can be optionally provided with any of four leather trim colours: beige leather, synonymous with luxury, is associated with the Privilège trim level, while the more sporting carbon, red and green are reserved for the Dynamique level. As well as carrying over 10 colours from New Mégane (Gris Boréal, Gris Hologramme, Beige Angora, Rouge de feu, Vert Giverny, Vert cuivré, Noir Nacré, Bleu Roy, Bleu Ottoman and Rouge Vif), the Mégane II coupé-cabriolet also offers one special metallic finish, Beige Poivre.
