The new Renault Captur is described by the firm as its first urban crossover, combining the styling and driving position of an SUV, the cabin space of an MPV, and the agility of a compact hatchback.
The Renault Captur is based on the same platform as the new Clio. The petrol and diesel engines available will return best-in-class fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, starting from as low as 96g/km.
The announcement about the Renault Captur comes only days after news of the Peugeot 2008 urban crossover , with emissions as low as 99g/km CO2.
The Captur will feature equipment including hands-free entry, hill start assist and rear parking sensors.
Also available will be the new, connected, in-dash Renault R-Link touchscreen multimedia tablet, plus a system that comprises six loudspeakers, Bluetooth connectivity, audio-streaming and Arkamys hi-fi sound.
The Renault Captur will be manufactured at Renault’s Valladolid plant in Spain and will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
