Seems finally after well over a year of speculation Renault is set to produce its version of a Jukefrom the pic it appears someone has been busy photo shopping a Juke the image below is sitting on Juke wheels and is actually an image and location I remember the Juke being promoted with The original is best all others will be copiessee article from Auto expressThe dead wood is being chopped out of Renault's range, and it's
making way for exciting new models, led by this version of the Nissan
Juke. As our exclusive images show, the car is inspired by the Captur
concept from the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. It's come about thanks to Renault's alliance with Nissan.

Following last year's axing of the slow-selling Koleos crossover -
only 3,000 models found homes in the UK - and the paring down of its
current range, Renault is looking to appeal to a new set of customers,
just as Nissan has done with the Juke.

These illustrations give the best idea yet of how the new model
will look, ahead of its debut early next year. As you can see, it's an
attractive car, with all the chunky cues you'd expect of a crossover,
mixed with the Captur's curvy shape. At the front, Renault's latest wide
grille has the familiar diamond badge at its centre.

Like the Juke, the new model will be available with four-wheel
drive in flagship form, but the vast majority of cars sold will be
front-wheel drive. Expect the new SUV to share its engines with the
Juke, too, including the top-of-the-range 1.6-litre turbo petrol and a
1.5-litre turbodiesel.

The Juke-sized car is just one of three Renault SUVs on the way.
The company is planning a new mid-sized model, based on the
next-generation Nissan Qashqai, and an even larger car based on the
upcoming Nissan X-Trail replacement. The latter was previewed at the
recent Geneva Motor Show by the Hi-Cross concept.

Renault isn't the only maker keen to expand its SUV line-up.
Peugeot has prioritised a 208-based SUV, to be named 2008, over
development of the hot GTI and CC cabrio versions of the car. Audi is
also set to build on the success of the Q3 by launching its smallest
crossover ever: an A1-based model called the Q1.

Plus, Mercedes has confirmed an A-Class-based 4x4, while Land Rover and Lexus have hinted at forthcoming smaller SUVs.Read more: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/autoexpressnews/280732/renault_to_launch_juke_rival.html#ixzz1rKjdtvSI
