RENAULT CAPTUR Car Review
A bang on the money Crossover!
Renault were late to the craze for crossover models but the Captur is bang on the money.
People like the idea of a crossover, a car slightly bigger than a super-mini, with the practicality of a family hatchback but that looks a lot interesting.
I like the Captur name because it goes with the bold sharp styling which is like a new Renault Clio pumped up on steroids. This is a stylish crossover that will appeal to mum, dad and the kids and its very well priced.
Another strong point is how well the Captur drives, again its very like the supermini that its based on, but with the benefit of better visibility all-round because of its higher stance and seating.
The cabin is refreshingly uncomplicated but is smartly finished with high quality trim and materials that put it to the top of this class. If a 0.9 litre engines looks a bit small for the Captur the three cylinder actually punches well above its weight, but I’d go for the extra performance and economy ( 60 to 70 mpg) of the 1.5 litre diesel. Plus, the Captur does most things well, nice to drive, relatively practical it’s easy to see why its sold so well since its launch.
* Good marks for style and substance * Good quality interior *
