As Renault’s first crossover, Captur’s flowing lines 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 hatch. Renault Captur offers an extensive personalisation programme, too. With its two-tone bodywork, wheel colours, customisable interior trims, Captur appeals to a broad spectrum of tastes and desires. The sliding rear bench seat provides an ideal balance of space for passengers and their luggage. In the passenger compartment the availability of removable seat covers which can be unzipped, machine washed at home and refitted, underline Captur’s truly user-friendly character.

  • Attractively priced equipment packs will help customers to configure their own personalised vehicle with coordinated interior and exterior themes. The personalisation programme is built around three different themes: 'Corsica', 'Riviera' and 'Manhattan'. Each one expresses a particular flavour: adventure, elegance or a city lifestyle. With Renault Captur it is possible to customise both the interior and exterior. The exterior can be personalised by: • A two-tone finish to provide a contrast between the roof, windscreen pillars and door mirror housings and the rest of the body, • Black, orange, ivory or chrome inserts for the grille surround, fog light housings, lower protection strips on the doors, and tailgate

  • Renault Captur blends three key ingredients: the character and ruggedness of an SUV, the interior space and practicality of an MPV, and the dynamics and driving refinement of a family hatch. SUV features: • A wheelbase of 2.60m and front track of 1.53m ensure an exceptionally surefooted stance for Captur's segment. • The large-diameter wheels (16- or 17-inch rims, 660mm diameter tyres) and ground clearance (163mm) open the doors to adventure. • Lower body side protective strips and bumper design. MPV features: • A reassuringly high-up driving position (10cm higher than the Renault Clio). • Large boot of a capacity between 377 and 455 litres (with rear bench seat in its forward-most position).

  • Renault Captur introduces the Patented 'Zip Collection' removable, zipped seat covers. This innovation is unique in the market and will be particularly handy in day-to-day use. The Zip Collection seat covers are easy to unfasten and can be machine washed at home. There's no longer any need to struggle inside the car to get rid of stains, so the interior can now be as good as new when you come to re-sell. The large boot is uncluttered in shape and holds between 377 and 455 litres. The removable, multi-position boot floor is reversible, with both carpeted and washable surface coverings. A large stowage space is provided underneath the boot mat.

  • Small but powerful, the latest-generation petrol engines are notable for their high power in relation to their capacity, as well as for their generous torque at low revs. These small and particularly efficient power plants allow refined operation to sit alongside low fuel consumption. The Captur is available with the Energy TCe 90 engine (0.9 litre) which produces 90hp (66kW) at 5,250rpm. This Energy engine has a combined cycle fuel consumption of just 4.9 litres per 100km and produces 113g of CO2/km. This engine is mated exclusively to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The second engine available is the TCe 120 EDC engine (1.2 litres) which produces 120hp (88kW) at 4,900rpm.

    The Renault Captur scored a 5 star safety rating in Euro NCAP's testing. It delivers the very best active and passive safety performance. • Adult safety: reinforced structure, high-performance frontal airbags, head/thorax side airbags, pressure sensors in front doors for rapid detection of side impacts, seat belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters (front seats), anti-whiplash head rests, load limiters for outboard rear seats, anti-submarining function for front seats. • Child safety: three-point Isofix child seat anchorage for the two outboard rear seats, with three homologated child seat anchorage points. • Pedestrian safety: designed to minimise pedestrian impact injuries.
