New Renault Captur

The New Renault Captur

Renault Captur is the B-segment “car for living”. It is versatile and multi-talented, both compact on the outside (4.23m) and spacious on the inside, modular to adapt to the uses of modern families, equally at home in the city or off the grid. Its high driving position is appreciated by its owners, allowing easy access to the vehicle and good visibility of the road. All these qualities explain the success of a car that has sold over two million units in 90 countries around the world since its launch ten years ago.

New Renault Captur adopts the new design language initiated by Gilles Vidal, Renault’s Head of Design. Playing on light and matter with taut lines and precise detailing, the new language creates a more stylish and dynamic effect. With its new front end, New Captur gains a more premium look.

New Captur will continue to set the standard in urban SUVs. New Captur maintains its versatility, two-tone body colours and generous interior space, along with a range of ingenious high-tech equipment.

Alongside these qualities, which are all part of its DNA, new-generation Captur gains a range of new features. More expressive inside and out, the styling delivers a unique twist of elegance and sporting spirit with the new esprit Alpine trim. The cabin is showcased by new upholstery and new dashboard screens. Depending on the version, the OpenR Link multimedia system with Google built-in provides the very best in on-board technology with Android Automotive 12, a world first in the B segment. The entirely new electronic architecture takes safety to new levels, with a range of latest-generation driving aids.

New Captur will be offered with two engine choices, including the 145 bhp E-Tech full hybrid option. For enhanced driving pleasure and a more dynamic ride, the running gear has been revised and the power steering recalibrated.

Showcased by the new Ceramic Grey bodywork and esprit Alpine trim, New Captur takes on a more athletic look with premium styling. Featuring a new light signature and two-tone bodywork configurations.

The new front end takes on a more elegant, technological look, with the Nouvel’R one-piece logo built into the multi-faceted grille, and a higher, more horizontal bonnet. All these details underline the stronger identity of New Captur.

The upper part of the grille creates a play of light, with its shapes in relief and the contrast between the dark glossy background and the transparent inserts. This sets off multiple reflections across the radiator grille, like a wave rippling out from the diamond in the centre towards the headlights and the bumper, with its tiny embossed parallelograms.

The front end features a horizontal air intake above the aerodynamic splitter, with another in the bumper. Two air inlets positioned on either side of the front end, next to the daytime running lights, contribute to aerodynamics and the cooling of the front brakes.

The evolution trim features 17-inch alloy wheels and a matt black finish on the lower body and beltline with long, black front and rear skid plates. The higher techno trim features all-new 18-inch alloy wheels and a High Gloss Black finish on the lower body and beltline. The new esprit Alpine trim is immediately identifiable, with its Ice Black logos, High Gloss Black window surrounds, 19-inch wheels of specific design, aerodynamic splitter and front and rear skid plates with Slate Grey matt finish.

The more upmarket style of the outside is also visible on the inside. The cabin takes on a more modern look with the OpenR Link multimedia system and a new dashboard screen (up to 10.25 inches). With new upholstery on all trim levels, the car gains a more premium look and feel. Featuring a wealth of standard equipment for a sporty interior ambience, the new esprit Alpine trim is an invitation to take to the road.

The interior ambience is immediately modern and welcoming, with its all-new upholstery. The grey and heather grey seat fabric on the evolution trim gains yellow top-stitching on techno, with a Renault diamond pattern on the interior side supports of the front seats.

The new esprit Alpine trim features multi-textured grained cover material fabric on the seats and door panels and a blue-grey insert on the dashboard. The cabin also makes many nods to the Alpine brand, a symbol of sporting elegance, with the national flag in the side piping, seatbelts with blue top-stitching, aluminium-plated sports pedals, branded door sills and a special steering wheel.

In terms of boot capacity, New Captur ranks among the best on the market, with maximum volume of 536 litres (VDA) when the rear bench seat is pushed fully forward (a gain of  114 litres VDA). The boot is modular, with a rear bench seat sliding over 16 cm and a removable floor creating a flat space. With the rear seats folded (2/3-1/3 split), the load length is 1.57m.

New Captur is versatile in terms of both its interior design and its use. With its modern, efficient powertrains, it is equally at home in the city, on the motorway or on country roads. The 145 bhp E-Tech full hybrid engine meets the highest standards in fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions, at just 105 g/km, and is as quiet as an electric car in the city without the charging constraints.
