2011 Renault Captur concept - Click above for high-res image gallery

The lines between vehicle segments and bodystyles are getting more blurred all the time. And it isn't just the Germans with their "four-door coupes" and "sports activitiy vehicles," either. Nissan has proven just as capable of blurring the line between SUV and hatchback with their crossovers - vehicles like the Rogue and Juke. And now the Japanese automaker's sister company, Renault, appears to be following down the same path with its new Captur concept.

The Captur follows last year's DeZir show car in showing the way forward for the French automaker's design language, capturing, as it were, the spirit that future Renaults will be taking. Of course this being a French concept car, it encompasses certain elements that won't ever see production. Things like the fantastical interior, to start with, and those 22-inch wheels whose white spokes seem to blend right into the tires. But if you want an overall picture of where Renault is heading, this is where it's at.

Powered by Renault's Energy dCi 160 twin-turbo engine giving 160 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, the Captur also incorporates dual-clutch gearbox.

Although Renault doesn't say so specifically in the press release after the jump, where you can scope out all the details, we're assuming we'll see the Captur on the show stand at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, from which we'll be sure to bring you our up-close-and-personal impressions and images. In the meantime, you can scope it out in the high-res image gallery below.
