Introducing the updated Renault Captur. Renault’s 2016 bestselling car in the UK has been improved in every way with more distinctive exterior styling and enhanced interior quality, all without sacrificing the car’s exceptional practicality and user-friendliness.
The revised Renault Captur takes styling cues from its bigger brother, the Kadjar, with a chrome strip added to the front grille adding a premium feel and updated skid plates producing a more rugged look.
The Captur now also benefits from Renault’s signature lighting design with ‘C’ shaped LED daytime running lights built into the front bumper and a ‘C’ shaped motif to the rear light design also. To improve safety, the Captur’s rear lights also illuminate as part of the daytime running light feature. Selected versions come equipped with ‘Pure Vision’ full LED front lights, the very latest in car lighting technology, which improves visibility for the driver and reduces glare for other road users.
There are now even more ways for you to personalise your Captur. With three additional body colours available; Desert Orange, Ocean Blue and Amethyst, and Mercury Sliver joining Peal Black and Ivory as an optional roof colour, there are now more than 30 potential colour combinations. Furthermore, there are six different colour exterior customisation packs available meaning you can create a Captur as unique as you are.
Take a seat inside the Renault Captur and you will find an interior featuring higher-quality plastics and premium chrome accents. The steering wheel now also has a more premium feel while higher-end models feature a full-grain leather covering.
Versions from Dynamique S Nav and above can now be specified with a fixed glass roof. This option floods the cabin with light, enhancing the bright and airy feel and making the Captur’s interior an even more pleasant place to spend time. Higher-specification models come with premium seats which offer more lateral support and increased passenger comfort.
You can personalise the inside of your Captur to complement the outside with seven different interior touch packs to choose from in Ivory, Caramel, Red, Bronze-tinted Chrome, Satin Chrome or Smoked Chrome.
The Captur retains the features that make it a hugely practicality car for all the family. Selected versions feature removable and washable seat covers making cleaning the car a breeze. The rear seats slide so you can adjust interior/boot space to meet your needs while the removable boot floor makes a fully flat load area when the rear seats are folded.
The Renault Captur is available with three different multi-media systems depending on the specification level of the car:
If you are an audiophile you will love the optional premium BOSE sound system available on the updated Captur. The system comes with six high-definition BOSE speakers with a subwoofer in the boot to provide crystal clear, realistic sound.
The Captur also has several new features to help keep you safe and avoid bumps and scrapes. Blind Spot Warning is available from Dynamique S Nav versions and above. This works by using four sensors to detect the presence of moving vehicles in the door mirror blind spots, including motorbikes and bicycles. When a vehicle is detected in the driver’s blind spot for longer than a second, a warning indicator immediately lights up in the door mirror.
You can also now specify the Captur with both front and rear parking sensors, rear parking camera and Hands-Free Parking on certain models. Once the type of space is selected and when the vehicle is travelling at speeds below 19mph, this system detects all available spaces. Once a suitable space has been identified, the system calculates and co-ordinates the vehicle’s steering, meaning the driver does not need to touch the wheel and can focus solely on acceleration and braking.
The Caputr retains its impressive 5-star EuroNCAP safety rating.
Whatever the type of driving you do, the Captur range has an engine and gearbox combination to suit you:
Petrol power is provided by two engine options, a 90PS turbocharged engine mated with a 5-speed manual gearbox or a more powerful 120PS turbocharged engine with a choice of either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed EDC automatic transmission.
If diesel is your fuel of choice you can choose between a 90PS unit with a choice of either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed EDC automatic transmission or a 110PS version of the engine offered with 6-speed manual gearbox.
