Renault updates the Captur crossover with new tech, better interiors and an improved exterior look.

  • New version of top-of-the-range Special Edition – Renault Captur Iconic Nav
  • New TCe 120 engine with six-speed manual gearbox available
  • Flame Red metallic paint with Diamond Black roof now available on Dynamique Nav and Dynamique S Nav versions
  • Captur range priced from £14,575
Renault has announced a number of specification and option updates to the highly popular Captur range, available to order from today. A new special edition version of the Captur – the Iconic Nav Special Edition – receives exclusive Arctic White pearlescent paint with Diamond Black two-tone body colour with blue roof and door mirror decals as standard. 

Adding to the crossover style are painted lower front and rear bumpers, 17-inch Explore’ alloy wheels with black inserts with a blue Renault diamond centre cap.

Meanwhile inside, the new part-leather seat upholstery is highlighted with light blue stitching with this detail carried on to the leather steering wheel. 
A new light blue tinted chrome interior touch pack also helps to carry the exterior theme through to the inside of the special edition. Aluminium pedals as well as matt black detailing around the cabin help to boost the quality of the Captur Iconic Nav Special Edition with the driver and front passenger also enjoying heated front seats for the cooler months.
The special edition also receives Renault’s Grip Xtend advanced traction control system including Mud and Snow Tyres.  R-Link Evolution touchscreen infotainment and satellite navigation system with European mapping and reverse parking camera as well as an electrochrome rear view mirror add to the equipment level.
The Renault Captur Iconic Nav is priced from £19,175 on-the-road.
A new powertrain mating the 1.2-litre TCe 120 engine with a six-speed manual gearbox is now offered from Dynamique Nav level and above. 
The new engine/gearbox combination provides a combined fuel consumption from 51.4mpg (NEDC) with CO2 emissions of 125 g/km. An alternative to the already-available TCe 120 with dual-clutch EDC gearbox, the TCe 120 engine with manual gearbox is priced from £16,575.
Elsewhere in the range, buyers of Dynamique Nav and Dynamique S Nav versions will now be able to specify the highly popular Flame Red metallic paint body colour with a Diamond Black roof. Complementing this, a red interior touch pack will also become available on these versions providing red bursts around the cabin on the centre console, speakers and air vents. 
The two-tone body colour is available from £595, whilst the red interior touch pack is priced at £100.
On top of the Renault Captur Iconic Nav, the Captur range is available in four trim levels and with a range of two petrol and two diesel engines, priced from £14,575. Captur was the best-selling compact crossover in Europe in 2015 and, as of the end of May this year, had sold over 596,268 vehicles globally since launch in 2013.
