It is not the first time that we talk about the sports SUV. These “foreign” vehicles, but do not have the body and more appropriate behavior for a high sportsmanship, they can become fun cars. Greater weight, high Center of gravity, air resistance…, in theory are characteristics that do not play very in favour when looking for sportsmanship; However, engineers of the brands are able to minimize all these penalties.
The best case is that of the Nissan Juke Nismo. Taking the base of the small crossover have managed to develop a sports variant, although is not at the height of a body coupé stuck to the ground, is not easy to follow a twisted road. In addition, this concept that was born from the fusion of a crossover and a high sportsmanship seems to like to the public.
A few weeks ago I had that Motoring coworkers claimed that Renault ruling out the release of vehicles of this type. However, today we have contradictory information, since the average Auto Express claims to have spoken with Bruno Ancelin, Vice-President of the French brand product plans, and this seems to have affirmed that there is still nothing ruled out and that could become a sporty SUV Renault carried out in collaboration with the subsidiary high performance Nissan sport , Nismo.
Ancelin supposedly would have declared to our partners that would be possible a collaboration between both brands. In this way, Nissan could help Renault for the development of a sports capture and Renault to the Japanese with a Nismo Micra, the French have the Renault Clio Sport. It seems that this high position is clear that the world SUV can be a good bet in the medium term, and is that, in addition to summon the Nismo Nissan Juke, also talk about great work with Porsche in the SUV Macan.
Will see if Renault finally decides to pull is to the pool with a SUV sports or if leave them ideas that may be hovering around them heads of them maximum responsible of the brand.
