FANS of the Renault Captur will be grinning from ear to ear with the arrival of the new look version of the brand’s five-door funster. The feisty and vivacious small SUV delivers a chic and understated elegance with its contemporary exterior design, and a colour range few can match.
The eye-catching selection of two-tone paint schemes now includes Atacama Orange, Cappuccino Brown and Ocean Blue, teamed with contrasting Diamond Black or Ivory White roof paint. Inside, there’s a swag of new and improved interior features as standard, including personalisation packs.
The model range has been overhauled and simplified, with trim variants now matching the latest Clio, Megane and Koleos models, introduced over the past 12 months.
At its base is the well-equipped ‘Zen’ model, in six-speed manual and six-speed dual clutch auto, complete with LED daytime running lights, rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera, Bluetooth connectivity and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
The Zen also features electric adjustable auto folding door mirrors, two cup holders, washable, removable seat covers (ideal if you like the outdoors), with storage nets on the front seat backs, and ivory interior trim for the centre console surround. Two-tone 16-inch ‘Discover’ alloy wheels complete the new look.
The new top-of-the range Intens model builds on the Zen specification and adds hands-free parking, blind-spot warning, extended grip control, a fixed panoramic sunroof, new dark charcoal leather upholstery, and R-LINK enhanced Satellite Navigation System with a 7-inch touchscreen.
It also gains LED Pure Vision headlights (20% more powerful than halogen globes), as well as LED front fog lights, and front and side parking sensors. Inside, an Arkamys 3D sound system features digital and AM/FM analogue radio as well as MP3, AUX, and USB inputs.
External differentiation of the new-look Captur Intens model comes through front and rear skid-plate styling elements on the bumpers, chrome front grille and boot lid strips, privacy tinted rear windows and tailgate, and 17-inch two-tone ‘Emotion’ alloy wheels. The Intens also offers a BOSE® premium sound system as an option.
