An updated Renault Captur will be revealed at the Geneva International Motor Show next week. The urban crossover has gained a C-Shape lighting signature, new body colours and a panoramic fixed glass roof.
As well as an upgraded design, inside and out, there will be new equipment. Renault says the Captur was the top-selling B-segment crossover in Europe, with 215,670 units sold in 2016.
The new Captur keeps its two-tone body colour option. Personalisation possibilities have been extended with two new body colours: Desert Orange and Ocean Blue, and a new roof colour, Mercury Silver. Motorists can choose from 36 different combinations to create their own Captur.
There are seven interior personalisation packs including a variety of colours – Ivory, Blue, Caramel, Red, Satin Chrome and Smoked Chrome – and five exterior packs: Ivory, Blue, Cappuccino, Red, and Orange (for the hub caps and side sill protector).
As with the other latest models from Renault, the new Captur is equipped with full LED “Pure Vision” headlights (depending on version). This technology is designed to sharpen the car’s looks and improve safety while providing greater efficiency. LED daytime running lights are built into the lower bumper in a C shape, forming the brand’s light signature. The rear lights feature the same signature, visible day and night.
Renault says the new Captur has been redesigned to strengthen kinship with its big brother, Kadjar. The grille has been upgraded to resemble more closely that of Renault’s other crossovers, notably with a chrome strip. Front and rear, the bumper includes new skid plates underscoring, according to Renault, the new Captur’s adventurous personality.
Three types of wheel are available across the range: one 16-inch rim (Adventure) and two 17-inch wheels (Emotion and Explore).
From the third trim level up, the Captur can be fitted with a fixed glass roof. Available only in two-tone configuration, the new feature improves ambient light in the cabin.
