It does look quite good. Side view reminds me a bit of the A class. Front is a bit busy with all the lights, not sure the hockey stick lights work as well here as on the talisman. Same goes for the horizontal lights in the lower bumper, almost feel like an afterthought.

Still a large improvement over the current megane.

I think it's gorgeous. Why can't this and the Talisman be Nissans?

Agreed. Slap a trunk on the back and, voila, new Sentra. Why is this so hard?

That concept might has well have not existed. I'm not seeing any influences in the Renault lineup et. Maybe the Talisman and Megan were already penned before the Eolab. A shame because it's cure are much more progressive and better resolved.

I do like this new model. I wish the headlights were slimmed down. DLO kink is iffy. But overall nice.

I suspect Eolab has more to do with a forthcoming green vehicle from Renault--maybe their own version of the Leaf?

As for this car, it occurs to me why Nissan doesn't use this or the Talisman here in the States is price. Nissan is really competing on price these days more than anything, even more so than the Koreans, and chances are, a Megane-as-Sentra probably would be looking towards a $19K base starting point rather than the $16K where the current Sentra starts.

The random chrome to the sill line of the DLO is a shame. So to is the Talisman-like front driving lights. Otherwise, it's nice.

Agreed, I thought it was quite a looker myself. Not to say the end result isn't nice either, as it's quite a good mix of 'sporty' with some premium touches. Let's hope we do see some more influences from the Eolab concept come to fruition in future from Renault.
