, and Renault may build a three-door Captur that would compete directly against the Juke, if sales are brisk enough. From there, it is planning for a sport model, possibly with Renaultsport branding. 

"For the moment we must concentrate on the mainstream – creating the cars that will attract volume sales is the sensible thing. But one day I hope to do a three-door version of the Captur. Speaking as a designer and not a product planner, then I can say too that a Renaultsport version of that car would also be special," said Renault designer Laurens van den Acker.

The next car that Renault will focus on is the Espace. The market for large MPVs like the Espace in Europe is shrinking in favor of crossovers, and Renault believes that it needs to revolutionize the car and is deciding whether to morph the car into a large crossover or do something else with it.
