The crossover coupe trend is on the rise, and Renault is the next automaker getting ready to offer a tall-riding model with a sloping roofline. Here, the coupe version of its Captur SUV has been spotted testing again, a model that will enter a category or segment below that typically occupied by the Germans, such as the BMW X6 and X4, as well as the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and GLC Coupe.

Though the Captur coupe crossover will have most in common with the B-segment SUV it is based upon, it appears that it will wear a face that rather more resembles that on the Megane, and despite the shrouding, correlates in outline to the the model teased last month. Having said that, the Captur coupe’s underpinnings and powertrain should be the similar to those found on the standard five-door.

Though the powertrain line-up is unconfirmed, the sleeker-roofed model could use the recently introduced TCe 150 petrol mill from the Captur S-Edition, which is a 1.4 litre unit producing 150 hp and 250 Nm of torque. This could also be joined by the existing 1.2 litre turbo petrol, which offers 120 hp and 205 Nm of torque.

This coupe version of the Renault Captur is set to be revealed at the Moscow Motor Show. The upcoming coupe-SUV will be manufactured in Russia for the domestic market, with other markets to receive a global-spec model – to be built in other locations yet to be confirmed.
