Unveiled the Renault Captur an exciting URBAN Crossover

Another Hot New Urban Crossover has been announced for the popular SUV Market. Today, Renault introduces the Captur, its first urban crossover, that will stand out from the crowd by delivering the best of three different worlds.


The new vehicle will bring the bold expressive styling and driving position on an SUV. The cabin Space of an MPV and the driving and enjoyment and agility of a compact hatchback. There are some bold life changing claims being made by Renault, it still looks good, not quite as good as the original sketches and without the electric and hybrid qualities of the original. Renault are making some bold waves in their styling these days. The Captur makes its mark and is the next step in Renault’s Laurens Van den Acker/design offensive and this new crossover announcement comes in the wake  of the New Popular Renault Clio. Also announced this week the new Peugeot 2008 Urban Crossover must be a French thing.



Renault Captur, a crossover on the outside

Renault Captur’s smooth, fluid, balanced forms express an assertive, yet unostentatious, personality. Its robust, upmarket look takes its inspiration from the Captur concept car, from which Renault has carried over both the spirit which guided its design, as well its evocative name. The lines of Renault’s new crossover are unpretentious, yet the forward position of its steeply-raked windscreen emphasises its dynamic stance.

The combination of its compact dimensions, raised ground clearance, wide wheels and sill guards will enable it to take every aspect of everyday motoring in its stride.

Renault Captur will be easy to customise and notably comes with an original two-tone colour scheme which produces an attractive contrast between the roof and pillars and the rest of the bodywork.

Despite its compact footprint (4.12m in length), Renault Captur exudes a real sense of interior space. Its colourful cabin is warm and relaxing, and this first impression is reinforced by interior customisation solutions based around a choice of colours and motifs for the different trim features.

Renault Captur also boasts the appointments and comfort refinements expected of an MPV, such as a high-up driving position, large boot, modular interior and innovative stowage solutions.

The standard Renault Captur will have an equipment specification worthy of that of the next segment up, including hands-free entry, hill start assist and rear parking sensors. Also available will be the new, connected, in-dash Renault R-Link touchscreen multimedia tablet, plus a system that comprises six loudspeakers, Bluetooth® connectivity, audio-streaming and Arkamys® hi-fi sound.



Renault Captur, the agility and driving enjoyment of a compact hatchback

Renault Captur is based on the same platform as New Clio, acclaimed as a B-segment benchmark when it comes to driving pleasure. It consequently delivers best-level dynamics, from roadholding to engine response and agile handling.

The petrol and diesel engines available for the model benefit from the very latest Renault technologies and will return best-in-class fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, starting from as low as 96g/km.
