Renault Captur will be arriving in TC Euro Cars soon
Get ready for the Renault Captur. This is an all new urban crossover from Renault will shake up the current compact SUV segment with its high safety features, well rounded cabin connectivity and an asking price that will compete directly with the hot selling Honda HR-V and soon to be launched Mazda CX3 SKYACTIV.
Scheduled to arrive at all Renault showrooms in the coming months, this compact SUV has flowing lines that highlight its distinctive proportions, while its large wheels, generous ground clearance, wide tracks and steeply raked, forward-set windscreen form a unique blend of MPV, SUV and hatchback.
The Renault Captur will appeal to a particularly broad spectrum of tastes and desires.
The creative freedom enjoyed by Renault’s designers shines through in the features and generous interior space expected of this type of vehicle. Though compact (it is only fractionally longer than the all new Clio ) Renault Captur is particularly roomy.
The sliding rear bench seat provides the ideal balance of space for passengers and their luggage, with a maximum carrying capacity of 455dm3 (up to the baggage cover). In the passenger compartment, two ingenious innovations underline Captur’s character as a truly user-friendly vehicle: a large drawer-type glove box, which is easy for the driver to reach and holds 11 litres, and the availability of removable seat covers which can be unzipped, machine washed at home and refitted.
Meanwhile, the in-dash Renault R-Link multimedia tablet provides access to a whole new level of connectivity, with an ever-expanding library of dedicated motoring applications. The Malaysian launch model will carry a TCe 120 EDC (1.2 litres) engine good for 120hp with class leading fuel efficiency of 5.4 litres/100km and low emissions of just 125g of CO2/km.
