Renault Captur RS Not Coming Yet, But Remains a Possibility…


Read more

Since there are so many hatchback-based front-wheel drive crossovers cropping up in the market, why not also try to turn them into hot hatches? It’s not the worst marketing decision the automakers that offer them could make, so why not give it a shot?

Renault Reportedly Killed Off Modern Interpretation of R4 for Captur


Read more

It’s clear that Renault thinks retro-modern looks are still in fashion, as the next Twingo will bear more than just a passing resemblance to the Clio’s precursor, the R5.

It seems that Renault’s former management, led by ex-COO Patrick Pelata who was forced to step down in 2011, was really interested in the creation of a heavily retro-influenced car with R4 styling cues, and that development of the vehicle had already commenced and was well underway.
