Longer compared to hatchback Megane on which it’s based, Coupe Cabriolet is definitely an elegant car that transforms from closed to spread out in a matter of seconds, because of a well-designed metal roof which folds neatly back to the luggage compartment.
A genuine four seater, the CC is Renault’s reaction to the 309CC of Peugeot. Power develops from a range of three petrol engines (whether 115PS or 136PS injection or perhaps a 165PS 2.0 litre turbo) or perhaps a 1.9Tdi diesel with 120PS and numerous torque.
Handling is neat and tidy, and also the car is surprisingly rigid even if the roof is down. Highly desirable, and half the buying price of a Mercedes-Benz CLK.
