Just after Renault teased its upcoming all-new crossover model, the new model’s spy pictures have been splashed on the internet. The new upcoming Renault crossover coupe model has been caught by the spy shutterbugs, while it was busy in its initial road testing rounds. Thus, Renault has not only started developing this new SUV/crossover model, it has also commenced the testing phase of the same, meaning it will be hitting the global market pretty soon.
Renault has already confirmed that this new crossover model will be showcased for the first time as a concept model at the upcoming 2018 Moscow Motor Show, which will be help in August. As per the recent reports, the upcoming Renault Crossover model will be based on the global Captur’s platform or the Russian Kaptur (not the India-spec Captur that is based on a different platform). It is also being speculated that the model will be boasting of All-Wheel Drive system along with automatic transmission.
The upcoming all-new Renault crossover is speculated to be a crossover-coupe styled model, and although its heavily camouflaged test prototype does not give away any specific design detail, the sloping coupe style roofline is certainly noticeable. The crossover does look larger than that of the India-spec Renault Captur. Renault has also revealed that the new crossover will be placed in the same C-segment as that of the Kaptur in the Russian SUV market. Although reportedly based on the same platform as the Kaptur, and belonging to the same class, the upcoming new crossover model from the French car maker is speculated be distinctly different from its sibling. It will be coming with an all-new front fascia with a very distinctive radiator grille design and new bumpers. If the this new crossover coupe is really based on the Kaptur's platform, then we can expect the dimensions of the vehicle to remain more or less the same, and the wheelbase also to remain the same. Nevertheless, the vehicle will be coming with absolutely different side profile. The all-new crossover coupe model from Renault will also come with a more aggressive and bolder design than the Captur and will be getting larger newly designed tail lights. The test prototype has been spotted with newly designed matte black alloy wheels which are also different than the Russian Renault Kaptur SUV. Nevertheless, it is too early to comment on the design part based on the spied test mule. The seen alloys might not make it to the production version, and something even better can be expected.
The company statement said that this new global model will open a whole new chapter in the history of Renault Russia and beyond. It will first go into production and sales in Russia followed by other global markets. The new crossover will be manufactured at Renault’s Moscow plant to start with. It will also be manufactured at Renault’s Russia plant alongside the Kaptur SUV.
This new Renault crossover coupe is expected to come with sharp styling, many goodies on the inside and advanced technology to be a breakthrough model.
