Its modern, harmonious style features proportions worthy of a higher-segment model, with an overall length of 4.35 metres. Only the front face, the headlamps and the bonnet are carried across from Mégane II. The specially shaped front wings extend the body sides and emphasize the car's slenderness. The absence of door pillars or side trim strips also contributes to its refined character and flowing lines. The model benefits from all the perceived quality features of Mégane II, and the mating surfaces around its opening panels - critical in a cabriolet - have been the object of special care.

Inside, the dashboard and the front seats are identical to those in Mégane II. The light and airy interior created by the folding glass roof is completely new to the market and enhances the specification in coupé configuration. Mégane II Coupé-Cabriolet continues the principle of the 'à la carte' car introduced with Mégane II, allowing the customer to combine an overall colour and trim scheme (Authentique, Dynamique or Privilège) with an equipment level (Confort or Luxe) and a powertrain. In addition, Mégane II Coupé-Cabriolet offers a choice of four colours of leather - green, red, charcoal and beige - and 11 body colours, including Beige Poivré, which is brand new.

Apart from its purely aesthetic value, the glass roof, developed by Karmann, confers many advantages on Mégane II Coupé-Cabriolet. It ensures permanent contact with the world outside and makes for ample rearward visibility. The feeling of enclosure inherent in conventional coupés and cabriolets is a thing of the past. In addition, it guarantees both acoustic and thermal comfort through the use of 4mm thick Venus 35 glass. The heated rear window and the elimination of any risk of ageing or deterioration of the hood offset the disadvantages of cabriolets. Operation of the roof is simple and quick. Opening and closing, performed by an electro-hydraulic mechanism, are entirely automatic and require no additional latching. Turning the car into a cabriolet, by holding the special button down, takes 22 seconds - one of the fastest times on the market.

Mégane II Coupé-Cabriolet provides an optimum driving position and visibility. The seat height has been reduced by 24mm compared with Mégane II, to achieve an even more sporting position. The door-pillarless design, the glass roof and the hidden safety hoops improve visibility for ease of manoeuvring in urban situations. Designed on the Mégane II platform, the upper body structure and the overall stiffness, which is among the best in the market, meet the need for both strength and safety. The variable-assist electric steering, and the stability and the accuracy of suspension movement also ensure genuine driving pleasure.
