An updated Renault Captur will be one vehicle among a multitude of reveals by the French automaker at the upcoming Geneva motor show.

Renault says that the updated Captur will have "more distinctive styling and new technologies". This means that the small crossover will likely gain a new front-end design with C-shaped headlights and a larger grille, similar to one setup seen on the latest Koleos and Megane models.

Joining the revised Captur on the Renault will be an 'EV surprise'. We're not sure what that entails at the moment, but it could be one of the following: a new EV concept previewing the next-generation Zoe, another EV supercar concept, a new EV variant for an existing model, or further range upgrades for existing Renault EVs.

In addition to these reveals, the Renault Group will also be relaunching the Alpine brand with a new mid-engine coupe. Widely believed to be badged as the A120, the new car will very closely resemble the 2016 Vision concept.

Featuring an aluminium chassis and probably powered by a turbocharged 1.8-litre engine, the Alpine coupe should go on sale in Australia in 2018 for a starting price of around $75,000.


Rounding out the company's busy schedule in Geneva will be limited edition models from Dacia, as well as the new Dacia Logan MCV Stepway, an SUV dress up pack for the budget brand's people mover.
