Renault has announced UK pricing and specifications for the New Renault Captur following its global debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Europe’s best-selling urban crossover in 2016 has reinvented itself to feature more distinctive styling and new advanced technologies, without sacrificing any of its user-friendliness. It is available to order now with first deliveries expected from July.
Bolder exterior look and upgraded interiors
The New Captur has evolved by taking a step closer in style to its bigger sibling, the Kadjar. The radiator grille has been modified to bring it more into line with Renault’s crossover family, with the notable addition of a chrome strip. At both the front and rear, the bumper incorporates new skid plates in evidence of the Captur’s adventurer credentials.

The C-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights, recognised as the brand’s lighting signature, are incorporated into the bumper. The rear lights similarly include this hallmark, visible both night and day. Full-LED ‘Pure Vision’ front lights (depending on version) enhance both the vehicle’s look and safety, while reducing glare.
The New Captur builds on the model’s original success, including its striking two-tone colour scheme, with three new body colours: Desert Orange, Ocean Blue and Amethyst as well as a new Mercury Silver option for the roof. There will be 36 potential combinations enabling customers to tailor the appearance of their New Captur to match their personal taste. 
Seven different interior touch packs are available in Ivory, Blue, Caramel, Red, Bronze-tinted Chrome, Satin Chrome and Smoked Chrome. These are complemented by exterior customisation packs in a choice of six colours: Ivory, Blue, Cappuccino, Red, Satin Chrome and Orange.
Three types of wheel are available across the range: one 16-inch (Adventure) and two different 17-inch wheels (Emotion and Explore).
New Captur can now be specified with a fixed-glass roof, from Dynamique S Nav upwards.
The cabin is more refined, benefitting from higher grade plastics, sleek chrome and elegantly subdued colours. The steering wheel also benefits from higher grade materials and, in higher-end versions, comes trimmed with full-grain leather. The gear lever boasts a more modern appearance, while the door panels have been revised to seamlessly incorporate buttons and controls.
The new seat design is more cosseting, offering additional lateral support and greater comfort. At the same time, New Captur retains its most practical features, including its zip removable and washable upholstery. Some new fixed upholstery designs are also offered, including two new part-leather upholsteries. 
Advanced multimedia systems
Three multimedia systems are fitted according to equipment level: R&GO®, Media Nav and R-LINK.
R&GO® is Renault’s smart, simple system that transforms the user’s smartphone into a connected tablet installed in a universal cradle. This practical system enables the user to intuitively access the car’s most useful functions, including navigation (through an in-app purchase), telephone, multimedia and vehicle data.
Renault R-LINK provides the New Captur with an advanced multimedia system. More customisable than ever, it comes with a 7-inch screen. It incorporates navigation with real-time traffic updates, 3G connectivity, Bluetooth, media playback (photos, videos) and a wide variety of applications via Renault’s R-LINK Store, as well as management of the vehicle’s driving aids (depending on version).
For the first time R-LINK is compatible with Android Auto™ granting users easy and direct access – via the 7-inch R-LINK display – to smartphone applications: telephone functions, navigation, music and messages. The New Captur is the first A- or B-segment Renault to offer this advanced technology.
Blind Spot Warning and easier parking
For the first time, the New Captur incorporates Blind Spot Warning, which is available from Dynamique S Nav. Four sensors work together to detect the presence of moving vehicles in the door mirror blind spots, including motorbikes and bicycles. When a vehicle is detected in the driver’s blind spot for longer than a second, a warning indicator immediately lights up in the door mirror. Active at speeds between 19mph and 87mph, this technology makes motoring safer for everybody.
In addition to its rear parking sensors, and depending on version, the New Captur is also available with front parking sensors and a reverse parking camera to simplify manoeuvring and help to avoid the bumps and scrapes that are an everyday risk in built-up areas.
Another new addition – available for higher-end versions – is the Hands-Free Parking function, which significantly facilitates parking manoeuvres. The driver begins by indicating what type of parking space they are looking for, be it parallel, perpendicular or at an angle. When the vehicle is travelling at speeds below 19mph, this system detects all available spaces. Once a suitable space has been identified, the system calculates and co-ordinates the vehicle’s steering, meaning the driver does not need to touch the wheel and can focus solely on acceleration and braking. 
New Captur range
The New Captur is offered in five trim levels that owners of other Renault vehicles will be accustomed to – Expression+, Dynamique Nav, Dynamique S Nav, Signature X Nav (previously Signature Nav), plus a new, even more luxurious trim – Signature S Nav. Each version provides a comprehensive standard specification, rising to the truly luxurious toward the top of the range.
The Captur has Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star safety rating.
All New Captur models have a reinforced structure, high-efficiency front airbags, head/chest side airbags, seat belts with pre-tensioners and force limiters (front seats), anti-whiplash headrests, force limiter function (rear side seats), anti-submarining front seats (Fix4sure). For child safety there are three-point ISOFIX child seat anchor points on the front passenger and outer rear seats.
All versions of New Captur are equipped with ABS with Emergency Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Control, Electronic Traction Control, cruise control, speed limiter and Hill Start Assist, providing a comprehensive array of systems to support safe handling and prompt, reassuring braking performance. It also benefits from a Roll Movement Intervention system, which helps restore stability in extreme situations where an excessive angle of body roll is detected.
Expression+
The New Captur delivers a quality feel even from the entry level Expression+, with Ivory Interior Touch Pack and 16-inch alloy wheels with black inserts. Black front and rear skid plates are incorporated into the bumper. Expression+ also incorporates the new front and rear C-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights signature, Hands Free Keycard and air conditioning. DAB radio is now also standard across the range.
Even from this entry equipment level, the New Captur is completely connected, courtesy of the addition of the new version of R&GO®
Dynamique Nav
As before, the Dynamique Nav is equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen housing the Media Nav infotainment system. This comprehensive multimedia system offers excellent value for money, considering the wealth of features it incorporates such as satellite navigation with traffic information, Bluetooth® handsfree calling and audio streaming via the user’s smartphone. It also includes climate control and Renault’s ECO2 function to optimise driving performance and fuel consumption. Compared to the original Captur, the new model adds 17-inch alloy wheel with black inserts and attractive new upholstery design.
Dynamique S Nav
Dynamique S Nav trim includes two-tone bodywork, extra tinted windows, a central armrest, a leather steering wheel and leather topped handbrake and gear lever. It also includes rear parking sensors and adds new roof colour options, full LED front headlamps with cornering function, front fog lamps and grey front and rear skid plates.
From Dynamique S upwards, customers can now order a fixed glass sunroof available only with two-tone paint and the Premium Pack consisting of an aluminium pedal unit, electrochrome rearview mirror and sunglasses storage.
Signature X Nav
Signature Nav has been upgraded to Signature X Nav. As before, it has part-leather upholstery, heated front seats and Grip Xtend advanced traction control system with mud and snow tyres. It also has R-LINK with 7" touchscreen now compatible with Android Auto™, TomTom® Satellite Navigation, DAB Radio, Bluetooth® handsfree calling and USB ports. An aluminium pedal unit, electrochrome rearview mirror and sunglasses storage is also standard. The New Captur Signature X Nav adds Light Harmony coloured panels on the doors linked by a sweep of beige colour along the lower half of the dashboard, plus new 17-inch ‘Emotion’ alloy wheels with black inserts and front parking sensors.
The Signature X Nav’s Grip Xtend System assists on difficult surfaces, giving the Captur off-roading ability. Maximum grip on the road in difficult driving conditions is provided through the use of a simple thumbwheel on the centre console allowing the driver to take their Captur across different terrains without having to worry about the car's handling whilst driving.
All-New Signature S Nav
The interior ambience of the New Captur Signature S sets it apart from the rest of the range with heated part-Nappa leather seats. An aluminium pedal unit, electrochrome rearview mirror and sunglasses storage is also standard.
To the exterior, a chrome-detailed grille immediately sets the New Captur Signature S Nav apart. Careful attention has also been paid to the front and rear skid plates, which feature a more metallic grey finish. The same effect is visible around the windows and drip seals, which are picked out in gloss black. Signature S Nav versions enjoy a specific range of colours, including the new Amethyst metallic paint. New wheels are the same as the Signature X – 17-inch Emotion alloy wheels with black inserts.
Finally, all of the in-car technologies available as options for the New Captur, including Blind Spot Warning, Hands Free Parking, are standard in the Signature S Nav. These features are complemented by a premium BOSE® six-speaker audio system and the very latest version of Renault’s R-LINK multimedia system, which grants access to all of the car’s multimedia functions with a single click, as well as all relevant smartphone applications courtesy of Android Auto™. 
Powertrains
The UK line-up features the 898cc TCe 90 and 1.2-litre TCe 120 petrol engines, plus the 1.5-litre dCi 90 and dCi 110 diesel units. All four are compact, light, smooth and flexible, and have been optimised for the day-to-day conditions experienced by urban crossover owners. Manual versions use Renault’s Stop&Start fuel- and emissions-saving technology. A dual-clutch EDC gearbox is available with the TCe 120 and dCi 90 engines.
