SIMPLICITY, SENSUALITY, WARMTH: RENAULT’S NEW DESIGN
Every day, our design teams work on shapes, materials and colors to lend each Group brand a strong and instantly recognizable personality.
THE NEW RENAULT CONCEPT CAR TREZOR
Renault presents TREZOR: As the worthy successor to the DeZir, the electric GT marks the beginning of a brand new design cycle. The two-seater electric coupé, embodies the new design philosophy Renault introduced on its DeZir concept in 2010 before inspiring the lines of new Clio in 2012. With its powerful styling and Passion Red coachwork, the DeZir heralded the first stage of a design strategy founded on the cycle of life: falling in love. The TREZOR goes further, by symbolising feelings of maturity and commitment.
TREZOR features the new Renault styling cues that are to be found across the range, namely warm, simple, sensual lines; a clearly defined family face and C-shaped signature lighting.

SVP Corporate Design
This concept car is the fruit of a freedom of expression and prepares the way for the trends we are likely to see in our upcoming vehicles.
“The Renault range has now been completely renewed and upgraded with a spectrum of complementary models, each one of which has its own assertive identity. With the TREZOR, we have pursued this renewal by introducing a new lifecycle sequence. This concept car is the fruit of a freedom of expression and prepares the way for the trends we are likely to see in our upcoming vehicles. These trends fall into two categories: French Design and Easy Life.”
THE RENAULT DESIGN
With the arrival in 2009 of Laurens van den Acker, the man behind the new design identity, Renault styling gained fresh new momentum. Simplicity, sensuality and warmth are the three keywords, informing an emotional approach to design that expresses our Latin culture and our passion for the automobile. The new design identity is based on the idea of the human life cycle. Each concept car unveiled by Renault since the 2010 Paris Motor Show represents a phase in the life cycle, from falling in love and exploring the world to starting a family, working, having fun and gaining wisdom.
THE RENAULT RANGE COMPLETELY REFRESHED
THE YOUNGEST IN EUROPE
From concept to production car: how to recognize a renault car at first glance?
From New Twingo to the Espace replacement via Clio 4 and Captur – and not forgetting light commercial vehicles – Renault styling is harmonious and immediately recognizable, featuring a distinctive front end showcasing a larger, vertical diamond along with flowing, curvaceous lines. The styling intentions of the concept cars created by the Design team are today very close to the production vehicles they preview. DeZir kicked off this new approach in 2010, heralding New Clio. Captur, the top-selling model launched in 2013, was clearly previewed by Captur Concept, unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. In 2012, Twin’Z and Twin’Run announced the arrival of one of the big revelations of 2014: New Twingo. And more recently, Initiale Paris previewed the Espace replacement. In the space of just four years, no fewer than 11 new models have been launched, while 15 others have been refreshed. Not only is Renault the world’s leading French car manufacturer, but the brand now also boasts the youngest range in Europe.
2016 reveal : New KOLEOS INITIALE PARIS
Renault has selected the Paris Motor Show to take the wraps off its new KOLEOS INITIALE PARIS, a high-end version of its new crossover. The new KOLEOS INITIALE PARIS is set to turn heads with its exclusive Améthyste Black paint scheme – with dark Metallic Prune hues – not to mention its specific interior design and ambience.
THE DACIA DESIGN
More modern and more attractive than ever
Dacia has refreshed the exterior and interior design of its four signature models, namely the Logan, the Logan MCV, the Sandero and the Sandero Stepway. These enhancements embody Dacia‘s new, more assertive and even more modern lighting signature.
Dacia design is on the move
The models display a new lighting signature front and rear for an even more dynamic, contemporary look. The design of the front and rear lights has been revised. The front LED daytime running lights feature a pattern of four stacked rectangles. The rear lighting signature is based on four illuminated squares.
THE DACIA RANGE
For more than 10 years, the Dacia brand has stood out as a major player on the automobile market thanks to its straightforward policy of manufacturing attractive models that provide real value for money for the equipment they feature.
What’s new in 2016
The new Logan, the new Logan MCV and the new Sandero all share a more modern front bumper design, along with chrome detailing for the air intake grille. Meanwhile, the design of the front and rear bumpers has been reworked to emphasise the models’ muscular stance.
