The term “crossover” has been around for quite while now, but until recently automotive producers haven’t really had the courage to make full use of it when it came to production vehicles. It seemed like the first step in designing a new model had to be a study of the boring chart that has been describing car body type ever since the we-don't-even-remembers.

Fortunately, the last few years have brought us production vehicles that really cross breeds and it seems that Renault is now preparing to offer us a new one.

The French automotive producer has published the adjacent image, which shows some sort of a mix between an SUV and a compact coupe. OK, the aforementioned statement might be a far stretch (this is why we used “seems”), as the car we are talking about is just a concept, which will make its public debut at this year’s Geneva Auto Show.

Named Captur, the study not only mixes slowing lines with a higher-than-average ride height, but also comes with a futuristic design that somehow manages to stay pretty close to a potential production-ready form.

Let’s just hope that, if Renault brings the vehicle into production, the company won’t create a gap between the concept and the final version that is as big as the one chosen for the Dacia Duster. (the production version is miles away from the concept)

autoevolution will be attending the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal shots of the vehicles, as well as for first-hand details of the motorized contraptions presented at the event.
