The new model is available with a comprehensive range of six engine and transmission combinations, two of which are reserved solely for the flagship GT versions. Among the additions are the new EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) automatic transmission, available exclusively with the 1.5 dCi 110 engine, at 130 grams per kilometre. Also debuting in the four-seater is the responsive, yet frugal 1.4 TCe (Turbo Control efficiency) 130 engine. The third petrol engine in the line-up is the 2.0 CVT 140, while the Dynamique TomTom powertrain options end with the 1.9 dCi 130. The two-version GT range is exclusively offered with the potent two-litre TCe 180 petrol engine or the high-torque, two-litre dCi 160 diesel powerplant.
In keeping with the car's style, Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet comes with a high level of specification, including an electric panoramic folding glass roof as standard, to give the feeling of freedom whether the top is up, or down.
Core equipment on the four Dynamique TomTom versions includes 17 inch alloys, 4x15W radio CD with Bluetooth and AUX input, air conditioning, automatic headlights and wipers, panoramic glass folding roof, cruise control, fixed glass wind deflector, hands free keycard, speed limiter and fully integrated Carminat TomTom satellite navigation.
Upgrading to the sporty new GT gives greater on road presence through a series of interior and exterior styling enhancements. On the outside, the top-of-the-range versions are immediately distinguishable through their bespoke sport front bumper with revised central air intake and gloss black detailing, and rear bumper with aerodynamic diffuser. They also benefit from a dark chrome surround for the windscreen frame and waistline, with matching door mirrors, door handles and front fog lights. Rounding off the stylish accoutrements are 18 inch alloy wheels and headlights with black surrounds.
The flagship model's sport theme continues on the inside with 'GT' sports seats, aluminium-faced pedals, an analogue rev-counter and polished carbon interior door pull handles, outer air-vents and dashboard trim including GT badging. GT versions also boast rear parking sensors and electric folding door mirrors.
Optional equipment includes metallic paint (£405, including Malta Blue for GT versions), Dual Zone climate control (£410), heated front seats (£305), leather upholstery (£920), bi-xenon headlamps (£665), Carminat TomTom satellite navigation (£460), Arkamys 3D Sound radio with multifunctional TunePoint (£360) and removable wind deflector (£150).
