The new Renault 5 has leaked ahead of its official unveiling on Monday, with new images showing the retro electric supermini in full - inside and out.
Previously released patent filings had already given a good idea of what to expect from Renault's Mini Cooper rival, confirming that it will – by and large – stay true to the acclaimed concept that was revealed in early 2021.
But these latest pictures reveal just how little the 5 has been changed in its evolution from a show car into a production car. The proportions are all but identical, the wheels are the same design, and the production-spec car will even be presented in the same striking shade of yellow as the concept.
There are subtle changes, though: the large illuminated Renault motif no longer features at the front end, the distinctive cross-hatched LED light designs have been swapped for a more conventional square motif and the pop-out front door handles make way for conventional grab handles.
At the rear end, the gap between the upper and lower segments of the brake light is wider than before. The light bar that spanned the full width of the rear end has been replaced with a solid-black trim piece.
We also get our first look at the interior, which blends retro cues and bright colours inspired by the original 5 with a suitably modern twin-screen digital cockpit and a multi-function steering wheel.
The leaked images follow a series of official previews released by Renault, which revealed a few of the 5's features. For instance, a charge indicator features on the bonnet – similar to that on the new Renault Twingo concept – with a light-up '5' motif that is used to display the battery charge level.
The brand has also confirmed that the new 5's 52kWh battery yields a range of 248 miles, according to WLTP tests.
