It’s a Renault tradition to have a medium sized convertible – there was one in the previous Megane line-up and in the 19 range before that. This one has the added appeal of a folding hard roof – although the performance and handling suffers for it. Where the Megane differs from Peugeot and many other folding-metal-roof droptops is with an all glass roof.

You can get one of these on a Mercedes-Benz SL but it’s an expensive option. On the Megane it’s standard fit. Think of it not as a sportscar, but a fine sunny day cruiser, comfortable even during the winter. A mild facelift was administered in 2006.
