Renault Mulls Over Captur Based Coupe SUV


The Captur based Coupe SUV is expected to be unveiled at 2016 Paris Motor Show

French automaker Renault is planning to introduce a coupe SUV to its lineup. The new model will be based on the Renault Captur. Expect the Renault coupe SUV to be unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show later this year in October. The coupe SUVs are certainly going to be a rising trend in the world automotive market. Renault is just planning to follow the trend and explore new segments.

At the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show Mazda showcased its Koeru concept, which was vehemently appreciated by Renault designers. Unlike boxy and aggressive looking SUVs, the coupe SUVs are supposed to come lower and sleeker looking. Mazda implemented the Koeru’s designed language into the CX-4, which doesn’t look as suave as the concept version. The Renault might not go the same way, as it has appreciated the Koeru concept only. In that case, expect the Renault’s coupe SUV to come more appealing.
