Geneva 2011: Renault Captur & R-Space Concepts

Renault has brought two gorgeous concepts to the Geneva Motor Show, that preview the future design language and hopefully we get to see something similar in production.

The Captur concept is a sporty convertible crossover, that features butterfly doors, LEDs, 22-inch alloys with painted accents, a translucent dashboard, aluminium pedals, and a head-up display system.

Power comes from a 158bhp twin-turbo Energy dCi 160 engine, that is mated to an EDC transmission, enabling the Captur to accelerate from 0-62mph in 8.0 seconds and hit a top speed of 131 mph.

The R-Space concept is a compact MPV with a panoramic windscreen, 21-inch alloys, suicide rear doors and LED lighting units. This concept is powered by a 107 bhp 900cc three-cylinder petrol engine, that takes it from 0-62mph in 11 seconds, while the top speed is 124mph.
