Renault’s new Captur will be seen in showrooms around the country from July 1st this year after the French manufacturer announced more details for its latest model.
The vehicle is described as an urban crossover and its style is borne out by large wheels, wide tracks, generous ground clearance and steeply-raked, forward-set windscreen to form a unique blend of MPV, SUV and hatchback.
It will be made available in four different trim levels – Expression, Expression+, Dynamique MediaNav and Dynamique S MediaNav – which lend themselves to personalisation thanks to two-tone bodywork, wheel colours, upholstery fabrics and graphic decals.
It measures in at slightly longer than the popular new Renault Clio, but provides plenty of space for transporting goods or taking the family out for the day. A rear sliding bench seat can be moved to create up to 455 litres of load space, while removable and washable seat covers ensure that the vehicle stands up to the rigours of everyday use.
“Captur is a distillation of Renault’s constantly inventive approach to the small car segment. The Captur project inspired a fast-spreading passion within the project teams, and it is this enthusiasm that Renault wants to bring to the market thanks to its new crossover,” said Ali Kassai, programme vice-president A/B range at Renault.
Under the bonnet, drivers are guaranteed driving pleasure and fuel economy though a line-up of 100 per cent turbo engines, including the petrol Energy TCe 90 which boasts three cylinders and 898cc, up to the TCe 120 EDC – benefitting from four cylinders, 1,198cc and an efficient dual clutch.
Diesel users are also catered for with the Energy dCi 90, which uses just 76.4 mpg while emitting 95g of CO2 per km.
While we await the launch of the Captur, the Renault Clio Hatchback 1.2 16V Dynamique MediaNav 5dr is currently available to lease through UK Carline for just £193.55 per month, giving a great example of the manufacturer’s style and quality.
