Outstanding handling performance thanks to a stiffer chassis and a new electric power steering system. A broad choice of efficient and eco-friendly powertrains, including the all-new automatic EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) automatic transmission. Careful attention to quality, including high-gloss black and satin-effect chrome exterior features.
The fully-automatic, electro-hydraulic opening mechanism of the two-part roof enables the driver to lower the top in just 21 seconds at the press of a button. A fixed glass wind deflector enables four people to enjoy draft-free driving at speeds of up to 90kph and, when used in conjunction with the removable mesh deflector screen located behind the front seats, allows two occupants to travel free from buffeting whatever the speed. Large capacity luggage compartment of 417 litres with the roof up, and 211 litres with the roof down.
- 1.6 16V 110hp engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
- 1.4 TCe 130 (Turbo Control efficiency) driving through a six-speed manual gearbox.
- 2.0 16V 140hp engine available with the new continuously variable transmission (CVT) for even greater driving comfort thanks to smooth, step-less gearshifts.

- dCi 130 DPF which drives through a six-speed manual gearbox.
- dCi 160 DPF also with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The six-speed EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) dual-clutch automatic transmission fits perfectly with Renault's bid to combine ride comfort, driving pleasure and respect for the environment. The New Megane Coupe-Cabriolet is the first Renault to use this new gearbox. Based on DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) technology, CO2 emissions and fuel consumption are comparable to a manual.
2012 Megane range benefits from Renault’s latest three new downsized engines, 1.2 TCe 115, 1.5 dCi 110 Stop & Start and 1.6 dCi 130 Stop & Start, all with impressive fuel economy and emissions figures, not to the detriment of performance and responsiveness. The dCi 110 110hp Stop & Start’ emits class-leading 90g/km of CO2 and 80.7mpg on the combined cycle.
The Megane 2012 line-up consists of Expression+, Dynamique TomTom and GT Line TomTom. The entry-level gains 16” alloy wheels, upgraded radio with USB connectivity and Bluetooth™ and leather steering wheel, plus cruise control. Dynamique TomTom adds LEDs, plus 17” alloy wheels as a no-cost option, while the halo model GT Line TomTom features Arkamys 3D Sound audio system, auto parking brake and rear parking camera with rear parking sensors.
On Coupe-Cabriolet, the main range remains unchanged, but welcomes a striking ivory coloured new special edition Floride drop-top with two-tone red and ivory leather upholstery, harking back to the original model of the same name from the 1960s, priced at £24,375.
