Renault’s forthcoming small crossover will abandon the dramatic styling of its concept car namesake for a more conventional, Clio-based design. The Captur, as it will be badged and seen here in these leaked Renault line drawings, adopts the look of a tall mini-MPV.

However, there is the possibility of a second small crossover, with three doors and coupé styling, and Renault insiders have hinted at the potential for this model to be built. Both cars are part of Renault's solution for its lack of success in the SUV and crossover market - its only recent offering, the Korean-built Koleos, has not been a hit in Europe.

The car in the drawings is based Renault Nissan’s B platform, so overall length is just over four metres, similar to the Nissan Juke which is also based on the B platform.

The Captur will be unveiled at the Geneva motor show in March, and will go on sale in the summer.
