New Renault Captur 2024 facelift: price, specs and release date

Refreshed Renault Captur drops its plug-in-hybrid engine but gets updated styling and sustainable materials

The Renault Captur looks a bit different now, doesn’t it? Renault has facelifted its Clio-based SUV for 2024, with an all-new front end design. Influences from the Clio are clear, while the Captur’s new face also ties in with the new fully electric Renault Scenic.

Renault’s smallest SUV competes with a wide range of rivals, including the Volkswagen T-Cross, Peugeot 2008, Ford Puma and Toyota Yaris Cross.

2024 Renault Captur styling

The recognisable C-shaped LED daytime running lights are gone. Instead, the focus is on angled headlights – for a sportier look, apparently – and more intricate patterns for the grille inserts and the daytime running lights, which are now half diamond-shaped to match the Renault logo. LED headlights are now standard. The overall effect is more confident than before.

Around the back, the tweaks are less obvious, but the brake light clusters are now clear and the bumper has been slightly redesigned.

Two-tone paint is optional on Techno trim and standard on top-spec Esprit Alpine, while alloy wheels are standard and range from 17 to 19 inches in diameter.

The big news inside is that the Captur now boasts Renault’s latest OpenR infotainment system, as seen on cars such as the Megane E-Tech Electric. It has Google software built in, and the sat nav runs Google Maps for up-to-date traffic info and super-quick response times. Google voice assistant software and the Google Play store are also included, with a wide range of apps available to download – think music and podcast apps, rather than games or dating apps.

The touchscreen is now bigger, measuring 10.25 inches on high-spec cars. Software updates take place over-the-air, like they do on a phone, while the ‘Multi-sense’ settings let you change the ambient lighting, drive modes, digital dial cluster views, speedo views and more. The ambient lighting can change between cool and warm light depending on the time of day. Wireless phone charging is now fitted as standard.

No leather upholstery is offered on the Captur, as Renault aims to boost sustainability. Any leather used in the old Captur has now been replaced with a grained fabric alternative. There’s much less chrome used than before, too, while the Esprit Alpine trim features recycled or recyclable materials for 26% of its surfaces.

Renault has slimmed down the Captur’s engine range, with only the 90hp 1.0-litre TCe petrol engine and the 145hp E-Tech hybrid available. The E-Tech plug-in hybrid – which was almost unique in the small SUV class – has been withdrawn, but the remaining full hybrid can achieve 60mpg without needing to be plugged in.

The petrol engine can achieve nearly 50mpg but isn’t quick, with 0-62mph taking a lengthy 14 seconds. Hybrid cars reduce this to a far more respectable 10-second dash. The E-Tech hybrid also features a soundscape by French composer Jean-Michel Jarre – including the welcome noise and the pedestrian safety noise that activates up to 18mph.

Prices, specs and release date

The facelifted Captur is going on sale in autumn 2024, with three trim levels available to select. Evolution, Techno and Esprit Alpine are the new trim levels, indirectly replacing Iconic, S Edition and RS Line. Prices are yet to be revealed, but shouldn’t stray too far from the current car’s £21,595 starting price.
