The 2014 Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet (pictured) gets a bit of a facelift for 2014
The Renault Megane range has had a bit of a facelift for 2014, and so far we’ve had the reveal of the Hatchback, Coupe and Sports Tourer Meganes and their UK prices. But now it’s the turn of the Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet to bow in with its facelift.
