Renault unveils a second edition of the Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Floride

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 4, 2011

Renault has made a habit of launching limited edition models and offering them little by little to the market. Renault has been known to only provide a second batch when the few examples of a new limited edition sell out. This was the strategy that the automaker used on the Laguna Monaco GP Edition. Renault is following the same method for the Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Floride.

The limited edition of the open top Megane debuted at the 2011 Cannes Festival. The company waited for the Megane to be sold out. It then announced a second run.

Only 1,600 units of the Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Floride will be built for the second batch. Out of this figure, 250 are intended for the French market. It has a starting price of EUR33,100.

This car is dressed in Floride Ivory and features a gloss black roof. Its seats are available with a two-tone leather finish while ivory trimming and a metallic finish are used for the gear shifter.

Powering this vehicle is a dCi diesel unit that offers 130 hp and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft). It can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 10.6 seconds and it has a top speed of 205 km/h (127 mph).

As part of the new Mégane line, the Renault Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet is sure to catch your attention.

Renault Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet exudes distinct elegance, especially with its big glass roof that makes it undeniably a cabriolet, even if it is configured to be a coupe. The glass roof has a shiny black finish that contrasts perfectly with the chrome windshield frame. The waistline has a sweep that gives the car a more expensive feel, helping to strengthen it cabriolet characteristics. The dark red tail lamps have a linear pattern, while the brake lights make use of LED lamps to give the rear a distinct signature.

The inside of the car also speaks of refinement and elegance. This is due to the top quality materials used as well as the high quality finish. You can choose from three trims: red dual-tone, dark charcoal, and a mix of beige and charcoal.

The Renault Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet uses the same floating dashboard that you have first seen in the Mégane Hatchback. It features seats that give you more additional lateral support and has the signature Megane door trim panel. All of these just add to the Coupe-Cabriolet’s natural elegance.

Practical yet chic

Passengers inside the Renault Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet will enjoy the open-top ride. The cabin is brightly lit thanks to the 0.47 sq. m. transparent area of the hard roof. The folding glass roof gives you that sense that you have a lot more freedom and space inside, while also ensuring that you are comfortable both from the temperature and the sounds outside. The hard roof is controlled by an electro-hydraulic system that opens the top in only 21 seconds with a single button press.
