What's the used Renault Megane sports like?

Based on the Megane Coupe, the Renault Megane Cabriolet lost its top and gained some weight. In truth, however, this is a car that's designed to look good rather than deliver sheer driving thrills.

The range was revised in 2000 and, before then, the ride was supple, but a little vague, with too much bounce. After the changes, the Megane had better body control, but at the expense of an overly firm ride, which passengers can find uncomfortable. Wind and road noise are both obvious, too, and you can expect some buffeting at speed when the roof's down.
