TTAC Photochop: Renault Megane III

Last week I wrote about how Lexus production models look a lot better than their concept cars. Well, with Renault it seems to be the exact opposite. Try to remember the VelSatis concept car that was quite appealing (in a French way) but turned into one of the most hideous pseudo-sedans ever. Same for the Koleos, that was initially an original and tasteful design, but became an SUV cliché as a production vehicle. This year in Geneva Renault brought us the Megane Coupe Concept, as a preview for the third generation of their C-segment player. While not being exactly production-oriented with its large gullwing doors and the hotter-than-Scirocco low profile, the car still has many styling elements that can be used on the third Megane. If Renault manages to break the "turn nice concepts into weird production cars" pattern we might see the first good-looking Megane soon.
