"The upper grade model of the first Megane."
Renault's core model in the 1990s was the Megane. The first iteration of the distinctly-styled vehicle appeared in 1995 in two body styles: a 5-door hatchback and a 2-door coupe, but other styles were added later, including a sedan, wagon, and even a cabriolet. The Megane Coupe represented the curve ball in this lineup because French cars, until the 1980s, were predominantly 5-door hatchbacks. The mere presence of a niche car, such as a coupe of cabriolet, was rare.
Despite its 2-door format, the Megane was an extremely practical car, with lots of space inside and thanks to a big hatch in the back, loading heavy luggage in the rear cargo was a breeze. It was even possible to use it like a wagon after folding its rear seats.
Following minor changes in 2000, the high-class model 2.0 IDE made its appearance. The 2.0-liter DOHC inline-4 produced 138 HP and 147.5 ft-lb of torque, getting the Megane to highway speed adequately. As for its handling, it was vintage Renault, meaning it exhibited sharp turn-in response and good overall cornering balance. Being front-wheel drive, it did understeer, but not at all in an excessive way. When you consider the total package that the Megane Coupe offered--style, size, and driving fun--it was difficult to rationalize buying anything else.
