Renault Captur 2017 UK price, specs and release date revealed
Following its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 in March, Renault has released the UK price and specs for the new Captur.
Renault Captur was Europe’s best selling urban crossover in 2016, thanks to the car’s redesigned image and enhanced onboard technology.
Styling on the car more closely resembles the Kadjar than the previous generation car did and the redesigned grille, helps the Captur’s styling stay more in line with the rest of Renault’s crossovers.
Chrome skid-plates and side sills have been fitted to give the car a more rugged and adventurous design.
Renault’s signature C-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights are also now incorporated into the car’s bumper.
Following the success of the two-tone colour scheme from the previous generation model, it its featured on the new model but with up to 36 different customisation options.
These come in the form of three new body colours – Desert Orange, Ocean Blue and Amethyst as well as the new Mercury Silver roof colour.
To go with the new exterior colour options there are now seven different interior packs to choice from – Ivory, Blue, Caramel, Red, Bronze-tinted Chrome, Satin Chrome and Smoked Chrome.
Upgrading to the Dynamique S Nav model or above means you can now have a fixed-glass roof.
Inside the car, extensive revisions have taken place to enhance the car’s cabin.
New seats have been added, higher grade plastics have been used as well as the addition of chrome detailing.
The upholstery inside is removable and washable in case of spills or accidents, however fixed part-leather upholstery is also available.
Prices for the new range start at £15,355 rising up to £23,745
Three multimedia infotainment systems, based on the car’s equipment level, are available – R&GO, Media Nav and R-Link.
R&Go is the most basic of the systems and requires a smartphone to be mounted to work. When a phone is fitted it allows navigation, telephone and multimedia to be accessible.
Upgrading to the R-Link means that you get a 7-inch touchscreen with navigation, real-time traffic updates, 3G connectivity, Bluetooth and media playback. This system is also compatible with Android Auto for the first time.
There are five different trim levels that owners can choose from Expression+, Dynamique Nav, Dynamique S Nav, Signature X Nav and Signature S Nav.
Each trim level offers varying levels of technology, comfort and design elements.
The interior features enhanced interior and personalisation options
