Renault has announced UK pricing and specification details for its new Captur, which was unveiled at the Geneva motor show earlier this year. The mid-life update of Europe’s best-selling crossover brings it closer in style to other models in the Renault range.
The new Captur offers a number of personalisation options. Seven different interior customisation packs can be paired with one of the six exterior packs to give buyers far more choice in how their car looks.
Five different trim levels are offered, in the normal progression of Renault model ranges: Expression+, Dynamique Nav, Dynamique S Nav, Signature X Nav and Signature S Nav. Three different multimedia systems are available according to trim level. R&GO transforms the user’s smartphone into a table connected via a universal cradle, while R-LINK’s seven-inch touchscreen incorporates navigation, 3G connectivity, Bluetooth and media playback.
The Captur scored a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating when originally tested back in 2013, although the testing regime has become tougher since then. All models have cruise control, speed limiter, hill-start assist and roll movement intervention as standard. Blind spot warning, front parking sensors, a reverse parking camera and hands-free parking are available at additional cost.
UK customers have a choice of two petrol engines; the 0.9-litre TCe 90hp and the 1.2-litre TCe 120hp, and two diesel engines; the 1.5-litre dCi 90hp and dCi 110hp. Manual versions feature a stop-start system to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
Prices for the new Captur start from £15,355 with UK ordering now open and deliveries expected to begin from July.
