From Concept to Reality # 1: Renault Megane Coupe

Here is a new weekly meeting, what we call "From Concept to Reality". Objective, linking production models associated with their prototype, to determine the aesthetic changes made ​​between a car without stress (or so) and version for the general public. Today, the first episode, the Renault Mégane Coupé.

The concept: Renault Megane Coupe Concept was unveiled in 2008 for the Geneva Motor Show. She surprised at the time for its appearance and its profiled styling elements close to the Fluence Concept (2005) and no one expected to see these lines in series. Gullwing doors, windows wide, wide wheels, everything is there for the spectacular play.

Reality: The Renault Mégane Coupé, which dates back to January 2009, has kept much of the facies, the "teeth" as aluminum, headlights fringed, curved hood in an arc and the floating logo. The waistline is still high, but the cutting of glass is more aggressive.

No red edging on the roof or skylight continuing the windshield, but it falls as much on the tailgate for a slightly sporty look. Stern takes a less pronounced musculature, taillights covered by a rectangular block and the pots are left. In short we recognize bad back but the outline of the optical and the upper fold go there.
