The styling themes of French car maker Renault will soon move into the second era of head designer Laurens van den Acker's influence, and this week's Paris motor show will deliver a first glimpse at the new look.
Van den Acker made his mark quickly, drawing up the DeZir concept that debuted in mid-2010. That concept's look moved to production with the new Clio hatch in 2012, working its way across the line-up to culminate with the new-generation Megane and Koleos models.

But, soon enough, everything new is old again. When Renault reveals its new Trezor concept in Paris, previewed almost pointlessly in the image atop this article, we'll have our first look at what will drive the look of Renault's next-generation range.
Very little has been revealed at this point, but Renault promises "surprising proportions" - a claim that could be a two-part hint, alongside one other detail: the 'Z' in TreZor is said to represent Renault's all-electric 'Z.E.' (zero emission) powertrain.
If the concept is to be driven by an electric system - as many seem to be in recent times - we might expect to see a shape not constrained by the need to accommodate a conventional drive package.
For the answer to that question, we'll have to wait until the TreZor is unveiled in Paris, tomorrow night Australian time.
