Renault hasn’t disappointed with the latest Captur - performance is adequate, running costs are reasonable, and lots of standard equipment is included, so the Captur looks like a great choice. Renault continues to aim the Captur strictly at urban life. No four-wheel-drive versions are available.
Buyers in this class demand style, flexibility and value for money, and the new model has undergone a complete overhaul to help it stand out in an increasingly competitive crowd of rivals.
While some may confuse the exterior of the new model with the original, their cabins are a world apart, with the new model sporting plenty of soft-touch surfaces, bright colours, and a floating pod for the transmission shifter.
At 4228mm long, 1797mm wide and 1566mm tall, with a 2639mm wheelbase, the new Captur is a whopping 106mm longer, 16mm wider, and 33mm longer between the wheels than the model it replaces-adding much-needed interior space for the family.
The boot has a handy two-tier floor, and space has increased by 27 litres to 536L. The rear seats not only split and fold but can also slide forward by 16cm.
Need more space? Why not fit a towbar to your new Captur. Carry your bikes on those weekends away.
Available safety features include autonomous emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality, lane centring assist, a surround-view camera system, semi-automated parking, and automatic high beam operation.
People that wish to really stand out from the crowd are well catered for - there’s a choice of ten exterior body colours and four roof colours, along with customisation packs that offer further styling accents.
The small SUV class is aimed at the growing family looking for style, space and plenty of safety kit. Renault has ticked all three boxes.
