Renault Captur Final Images and Details Unveiled
This is the Renault Captur. It is Renaults first urban crossover that will stand out from the crowd by delivering the best of three different worlds. Coming in the wake of hot looking Clio’s renewal, Captur marks the next step in Renault’s design offensive under the leadership of Laurens van den Acker. “Renault Captur is a compact, unaggressive crossover which is particularly user-friendly. It benefits from Renault genes through and through…” Benoît Bochard, Director, A/B-Segment Product Range. Renault Captur’s smooth, fluid, balanced forms express an assertive yet unostentatious personality. Its robust, status-enhancing look takes its inspiration from the early Captur comcept 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 perceived as unpretentious, yet the forward position of its steeply-raked windscreen emphasises its dynamic stance.
Despite its compact footprint (length: 4.12m), Renault Captur exudes a real sense of interior space which is underpinned by the forward position of its windscreen and its generous interior dimensions. Its exclusive, colourful cabin is warm and relaxing, and this first impression is reinforced by a selection of interior customisation solutions founded on 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 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 road holding 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.
