The Renault Captur is a subcompact crossover manufactured by the French automaker Renault. The production version made its debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and started to be marketed in France during April 2013.

In Russia, a longer version with extended wheelbase, elevated ground clearance and four-wheel-drive is available as the Renault Kaptur starting from March 2016.

Characteristics Edit

The car is based on the fourth generation Clio and incorporates design lines from the homonymous concept, as part of Renault's renovated design strategy developed by Laurens van den Acker. It has various customisation options for the interior and the exterior.

The Captur has some new elements such as a large drawer-like glovebox that is more easily reachable by the driver, instead of a conventional glove compartment in left-hand drive models. As standard, the car has parking sensors and voice activation for certain functions. In some versions it also adds removable seat covers with zippers, a new Renault satellite navigation system with touchscreen, reverse cameras and automated head lamps and windscreen wiper.

The Captur achieved a 5-star rating at the 2013 EuroNCAP tests. Between its standard safety equipment it has three-point seat belts, two airbags, cruise control, speed limiter, ESC, ABS and audible and visual seat belt reminder warnings. Renault Captur is also equipped with Hill-Start assist feature.

Sales Edit

Despite being on the market for less than a full year, it managed to rank third in the European small crossover segment for 2013, with just over 84,000 sales, behind the Nissan Juke and the Dacia Duster, and it was the segment's best seller in the last quarter of 2013.

The Captur is powered by a range of petrol and diesel engines.
