Dubbed Captur, and sized between the Clio and the Megane, the concept is the second in a series of six ‘human life cycle’ concepts from new Renault design chief Laurens Van den Acker that showcase Renault’s future design strategy.
Van den Acker says the company is defining a new ‘human’ design language inspired by three key words ‘simple’, ‘sensuous’ and ‘warm’.
The Captur sports styling from last year’s DeZir coupe concept, such as its front-end looks, scissor doors and futuristic cabin.
Renault says the 1300kg two-seater is a crossover between a coupe, a convertible, an urban vehicle and an off-roader. It has a removable hard convertible top that exposes the Captur’s carbonfibre framework when removed.
It sports large 22-inch alloys with a look similar to those on the DeZir, while other exterior styling features include LED lights, matt-finish wings, and distinctive orange paintwork. The concept’s exterior designer Julio Lozano said a sprinter in a styling block with their muscles tensed inspires its exterior looks.
