Renault is developing in this period a future compact crossover that will enter the French manufacturer range. The new crossover will be built on the Nissan Juke platform, but will be slightly larger in size and will fit perfectly between Juke and Qashqai. Under these conditions, the new model from Renault could become a higher level version of Dacia Duster and could attract customers who are not satisfied with the low-cost idea promoted by the Romanian model.
For now, the code name of the future Renault crossover is X87 and will become, according to British from Autocar, a substitute for the Koleos SUV, a model that did not rise to the claims of the French car manufacturer.
The Renaul Crossover will be presented in concept form at the Geneva Motor Show 2011 and will be characterized in the design chapter by the lines that are present in the recently-launched prototype Renault DeZir. The series version will be presented in 2012 and the model will be produced, most likely at the Renault factory in Valladolid, where the French will produce the series version of the electric model,Twizy Z.E.
