Renault R-Space Concept - Click above to watch video after the jump

Thanks to some, um, crafty camera work we've got our first glimpse at the Renault R-Space Concept set to debut at next month's Geneva Motor Show. Renault has been suspiciously quiet about what we can expect from the model once the sheets get yanked back, but according to CarAdvice, the concept rides on the same platform as the Megane. That may mean the French automaker has plans to turn out a production version of its Switzerland-bound concept, and if true, buyers may find the hatchback's 1.6-liter turbo-diesel under the hood churning out around 161 horsepower.

Judging from the quick clip, it looks like the concept will wear some fittingly outrageous design cues, including a windshield that works its way through to the vehicle's roof and a few LED highlights nestled down low in the front fascia. Those wild rocker panels help give the R-Space Concept the appearance of a much taller ride height, and the kinked hip-line lends a hint of crossover to the whole shebang. Hit the jump to check out the clip for yourself.

      I actually was stopped in traffic because they were filming the commercial... saw it go by a few times. Impressive is the black SUV going in reverse at full speed, or close. It was very early morning and when I finally realized I should be filming or taking photos it was too alte and traffic was moving again and cops all over the place to be filming in motion... lol

      I like it. I'm a big fan of Renault's design theme lately. This is what the Juke should have been.

      So it was just driving around the street without camo? This screams "planned leak" to me.

        They were filming a commercial/teaser video....there is a Black SUV with a Camera Rig on the other side of the concept.

        Some 18 years ago I owned a Clio 1.2 RT of a very similar color: kinda metal gold bronze and accordingly to Renault, the most beautiful color of the range because they even put it on the User Manual's cover. I got her because I was urgently needing a car and that one was ready in the show room. Not that I went crazy for it, nor it was much liked by the majority of my friends, but it often helped me to find my car, when it was parked in the huge ocean of the metal greys...

      At last - a replacement for the fantastic Avantime.
