Updates to best-selling Renault Captur

The Renault Captur, a model the brand first launched in 2013 as one of the first of the breed of smaller crossover-style SUVs, is being updated.

The changes are expected to maintain the Captur’s major success for Renault – it has since become the brand’s best-selling model both in the UK and Europe, with more than 215,000 sold in 2016, as the B-segment SUV sector has mushroomed in popularity.

Changes to the model centre on its looks and equipment, with the mechanical specification – ranging across 90 and 120hp petrol and 90 and 110hp diesel engines – remaining unchanged.

Family look

Visually the car gains redesigned bumpers, front grille and headlamps, designed to fit the family style established by its larger sister models, the Kadjar and soon to be launched Koleos. New colour options for both the body and roof take the number of variations of the two-tone exterior finish to 30.

Inside there are new finishes designed to present a more upmarket environment, redesigned gear levers and door panels and several new equipment options. These include Android phone connection on the top-specification R-Link infotainment system, along with front and side parking sensors, blind spot warning, hands-free parking and a fixed panoramic sunroof.

Dealers have started taking orders for the new Renault Captur, prices ranging from £15,355 to £23,745 and now including a range-topping Signature S Nav trim level. First cars are expected on UK roads in July.
