Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet (2010 – 2016) Review

Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet (2010 – 2016) At A Glance


+Impressive glass-panelled folding roof. Comfortable and relaxing to drive. Useable boot space. Refined even with the roof down.

-Fiddly stereo. Fairly pointless rear seats. Emissions and fuel consumption of top dCi 160 on the high side.

Insurance Groups are between 16–27
On average it achieves 80% of the official MPG figure

The Renault Megane Coupe-Convertible is a stylish convertible car that's able to offer the best of both worlds. Unlike some other cars of this ilk, it's just as impressive whether you have the roof up or down. It's also very comfortable and refined, meaning it's a convertible that you can happily live with all year round.

Of course, the main feature of coupe-convertibles is the roof and the Renault Megane Coupe-Convertible has one of the most innovative designs around. Rather than a metal top, it has two large glass panels which gives it a premium look and also means the cabin feels incredibly bright, even when the roof stays up.

But the best aspect of the Megane Coupe-Cabriolet is that once you drop that stylish roof - which takes just 21 seconds - it's still a refined car to drive. Thanks to a clever fixed glass wind deflector (and an optional mesh deflector) it's incredibly serene and unruffled on the move, while still allowing you to enjoy that sense of 'open-air' motoring.

Renault has fitted some of its best engines in the Megane Coupe-Cabriolet too including the impressive turbocharged TCe petrols and some strong diesels, like the 1.5 dCi which is capable of averaging 56.5mpg. It shares the same cabin as the Megane hatchback which means a good quality finish with some high-class materials. It's also relaxing to drive with easy steering and an impressively forgving ride, putting it firmly alongside the Volkswagen Eos as one of the leading coupe-convertibles on the market.

What convertibles can I buy for £1600?
"I'm 66, retired and disabled but I want a convertible. Please will you recommend one that doesn't have a 1.6 VVTi engine, preferably with a tin roof and no more than £1600."
Renault Megane CC, Peugeot 307CC. But for this sort of car for this sort of money you cannot expect 100 per cent reliability of the car or of the roof.

Is it a bad idea to sell a convertible in winter?
"I have a two-litre Renault Megane Cabriolet, which I would like to sell. I know that the advice is "buy a convertible in the winter but sell when it's warmer" - but as the Cabriolet is a glass-top rather than a soft-top, does the advice still hold? "
Yes because even though the CC has a solid top, the attraction of a convertible is driving with the roof down, which is not very practical when it's snowing. I think you'll do better in January than right now because the market is usually dead from now until then.

Fun, cheap to run, practical car for £8k?
"I am currently looking for something cheap to run that fits in the fun good-looking category. I drive around 10,000 miles a year, so for the outlay and lack of DPF problems I'd rather stick with petrol. I really like the look of the Renault Megane Coupe and for my £8k budget could get a 30k-mile 10-plate 1.6. I am concerned, however about Renault long-term reliability and electrics that have always plagued Meganes? The other option is my Dad's BMW 1-series which is worth similar money - 08 116i SE 5dr. What do you think of this car? I actually really like driving it, but as it is 5 years old now, and has done 50k miles, is it likely to cost me a lot to keep going from now on?"
Though I share your admiration for the looks of the Megane coupe, the BMW is better to drive and will probably hold its value better.

Where can I get a replacement mirror housing for my Renault Megane Cabrio?
"I recently noticed that the right-hand indicator in the drivers mirror of my 2011 Renault Megane Cabrio had stopped working, and closer inspection revealed that the outside edge of the mirror housing had been broken, presumably by a passing vehicle. All the features except the orange bulb worked OK. Enquiring about the cost of a new housing, (which was all that was required, as the mirror itself and everything else was undamaged), the breathtaking price of £303 was quoted, plus the cost of fitting, about £30-£40. This was at a Renault dealer. Your comments would be appreciated. "
That would be the price for the entire mirror assembly. Car manufacturers do not supply them in separate components. There is an independent that supplies just the mirror pods:
