Renault Captur Dynamique dCi 90 Stop & Start - June 2013
The Renault Captur is a crossover model introduced by the French manufacturer intended to do battle with rivals such as the Nissan Juke and Peugeot 2008. It was shown as a concept at the 2011 Gene...

Renault Captur Overview

On first glance, the Captur appears chunkier than the Clio. It's also 100mm higher and 100kg heavier and appears to have some genuine off-road credentials, despite being offered in front-wheel drive form only.

There are three engines on offer, all of them turbocharged. The range kicks off with a 0.9-litre three-pot with 89bhp, a 1.2-litre four-pot with 118bhp and a 1.5-litre 89bhp diesel. All engines do a decent job; however, it's the 1.5-litre diesel which stands out.

On the inside, the Captur is a spacious car with plenty of storage space. There are some neat styling touches too.

Background

The Renault Captur made its debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and went on sale later that year. It's Renault's first foray into the mini SUV market.

Summary

The Renault Captur is a refreshingly different alternative to the normal mini SUV crossover fare and offers plenty of style, practicality and value. Plus, it's also available with a range of good engines.
