Renault, which is the European market’s number one LCV manufacturer, finally decided to refresh the Kangoo, and give it a look more like the latest models of the French brand, but still giving it a unique and more muscular appearance, while having a few differences between the various versions (leisure activity, the van and the electric version).

We already saw a video and a few pictures of the Twin'Fun concept (I am still not sure if the name is Twin'Fun or Twin'Run, but i am sticking with Twin'Fun for now), but it seems Renault has now decided to started teasing this new car, that was first previewed by the Ross Lovegrove concept.

We suspected that Renault Sport would come up with something related to the Twizy, since, a few days ago, the French company released a teaser together with the information that this presentation was going to take place at the Twizy manufacturing plant in Valladolid, Spain. And they delivered, showing us a crazy looking single seater car.

The first teaser promised a lot. It looked so different, but now that we get to see the official pictures, it looks a little bit weird, specially the interior. How much will this cost you? 3.49 Lakhs. 1 lakh equals to 100.000, so this will cost you an extra 349.000 rupees (€4950, $6450 or £4250) over the price of the Duster.
On April 25, Renault will show a new concept that will join the world of Formula 1 with the world of electric cars, creating a new vehicle that will feature, according to the French brand, a "muscular styling and impressive performance credentials". For now we only get to see a teaser.

The Renault Laguna was never considered a beautiful car, but it was a good product, even with its small flaws. As we approach the end of its lifespan, the French brand has now released this special edition to give a new life to the Laguna, before its replacement is introduced.
And to promote the car, Renault Sport created a video where they pick up "strangers" on the streets of Paris and take them for a very special ride, where they can see the French city landmarks is a very fast way. See the video below.

Most of us agree that the Dacia (Renault in some markets) Duster is not one of the most beautiful cars to be driven on our roads, but the Indian design company wants to change that by introducing this special version of the Duster. Nothing else was revealed with the exception of a teaser.

Last month, Renault showed some pictures of a concept created in conjunction with the Lovegrove Studio, owned by the Welsh designer, Ross Lovegrove. Those were just teasers and didn't reveal much, but today we can clearly see this new concept, and it looks a lot like the Twin'Run. Even the name is similar.

Most of you probably never heard of the Renault Koleos, also known as the Renault Samsung QM5 in South Korea, but this compact SUV is sold sold in countries like China, India and Russia achieving some success in some of those countries. The current model was introduced in 2011 but as we can see from these pictures taken in China it seems Renault is preparing a facelift for the Koleos.

Last year, Renault announced they were going to revive the Alpine brand, but the first model will only arrive in 2016. To keep the Alpine name on the spotlight, Renault planned several things. The first was the entry of five A110 berlinettes for last January’s Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique. The next one will be the return to endurance racing in the 2013 Le Mans.
A few weeks ago Renault started teasing the Ross Lovegrove concept, and in one of the pictures we had a pretty clear view of the back of the car. If we compare that picture with the image we got from the Twin'Run concept, we can clearly see they are pretty much a match, meaning the Lovegrove concept could serve as a preview for the Twin'Run.

A few years ago Renault revived the long dead Gordini name creating an exclusive line for their smaller cars, therefore it is no surprise that now some rumors are starting to appear online about the new Clio RS Gordini. One thing that remains unchanged is the blue paint with the two white stripes.

While the RS version of the Renault Clio was already presented some time ago, the French brand in Geneva decided to show a less sporty version called the GT. And in my opinion it looks better than the RS, at least it has a smaller mouth.

Following the presentation of the Scénic XMOD, Renault also introduced the facelift of the normal Scénic and the Grand Scénic. The new design follows the one being used in most recent models, like the Clio. On the outside we have a bigger logo, a new grille and bumpers.
This new version of the Renault Scénic can be summarized is just a few words. Its a Scénic with a larger ground clearance, special black front and rear bumpers, sill guards and chrome-finish roof bar. Mechanically there is nothing new (we expected four-wheel drive), except for an improved traction control system, called Extended Grip.
