Last year, Renault announced they were going to revive the Alpine brand, but the first model will only arrive in 2016. To keep the Alpine name on the spotlight, Renault planned several things. The first was the entry of five A110 berlinettes for last January’s Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique. The next one will be the return to endurance racing in the 2013 Le Mans.
A few weeks ago Renault started teasing the Ross Lovegrove concept, and in one of the pictures we had a pretty clear view of the back of the car. If we compare that picture with the image we got from the Twin'Run concept, we can clearly see they are pretty much a match, meaning the Lovegrove concept could serve as a preview for the Twin'Run.

Following the presentation of the Scénic XMOD, Renault also introduced the facelift of the normal Scénic and the Grand Scénic. The new design follows the one being used in most recent models, like the Clio. On the outside we have a bigger logo, a new grille and bumpers.
This new version of the Renault Scénic can be summarized is just a few words. Its a Scénic with a larger ground clearance, special black front and rear bumpers, sill guards and chrome-finish roof bar.
