All-new Renault Captur

The Renault Captur has arrived to Peterborough. The second generation of Renault’s best-selling car, it’s been transformed from the ground up!

The All-New Captur combines effortless style with all the latest technology, including Renault’s first plug-in hybrid powertrain. The car has an unmistakeable presence on the road thanks to its athletic and dynamic design, and a strong SUV identity thanks to tough-looking front and rear skid plates and protective side mouldings. Chrome accents add a touch of class, and clever features such as vents in the front bumper help to reduce drag and improve fuel economy. LED headlights are standard across the range, improving night-time visibility and enhancing the car’s good looks. The headlights also feature Renault’s signature ‘C-shaped’ daytime running lights for added kerb appeal. You’ll also find sleek LED lights at the rear, sculpted into the bodywork for added style. A Captur trademark, the new version retains the option of a contrasting roof in four colour options.

Practicality hasn’t been forgotten in the quest for style though, with the New Captur also available with longitudinal roof bars. Inside you’ll find an interior to both surprise and delight. The quality of materials used in the cabin rival those of cars costing far more, while the design itself is both stylish and practical, with all controls simple to use and within easy reach. In fact, the All-New Captur is one of the most practical cars in its class. Boot space is up to a massive 536 litres with the rear seats in place, and the rear seats slide forwards and backwards so you can balance passenger and luggage space depending on what’s needed.

The rear seats also split and fold 60/40 for when you need even more space, and the moveable boot floor creates a lip-free load area with hidden storage underneath. With up to 27-litres of storage space in the cabin there’s plenty of space for life’s odds and ends. The space is clever as well as plentiful – for example the front door pockets can fit a 1.5-litre bottle and the centre armrest features two USB sockets. And there’s ample room for people too, with rear seat space improved thanks to the cleverly designed shape of the front seats. What’s more, comma-shaped front headrests improve the view for passengers in the back. All Captur models come with a central touchscreen as standard, with either a 7- or 9.3- inch screen depending on the model, allowing easy control of many of the car’s function. The systems, known as EASY LINK, feature alwayson 4G connectivity, real-time information for satellite navigation (where fitted), a customisable interface, and automatic updates.

The All-New Captur is available with a host of technologies to make driving easier and more pleasurable, to keep you and your family safe out on the road, and make parking your car as simple as possible. Choose from a range of engine choices, including petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid options. There are three petrol engines to choose from: the TCe 100 with 100PS and a manual gearbox, The TCe 130 can be specified with either a manual or new seven-speed EDC automatic transmission, while the most powerful TCe 155 is fitted with the sevenspeed EDC automatic gearbox as standard. The two diesel options feature a 95PS or 115PS power output.

Both options feature a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while the more powerful engine can also be specified with the seven-speed EDC automatic gearbox. Renault’s clever E-Tech plug-in hybrid technology combines a 9.8kWh battery pack with a petrol engine to give you the best of both worlds. The battery provides up to 28 miles of fully electric motoring, at which point the engine kicks in to keep you moving. Even once the battery has been depleted, it retains enough charge to operate as a standard hybrid, boosting power and improving economy compared.
