2017 Geneva Motor Show: Renault Captur

By CARSIFU | 9 March 2017

GENEVA: The new Renault Captur has been unveiled at Geneva International Motor Show.

Europe’s best-selling urban crossover in 2016 with sales of 215,670 vehicles, has reinvented itself to feature more distinctive styling and new advanced technologies, without sacrificing any of its user-friendliness.

For the first time, a range-topping Captur Signature S Nav version will be available.

Full-LED ‘Pure Vision’ front lights (depending on version) enhance both the vehicle’s look and safety, while reducing glare.

At the bottom of the bumper, New Captur incorporates the C-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights that have become recognised as the brand’s lighting signature.

Captur has evolved by taking a step closer in style to its bigger sibling, the Kadjar.

The radiator grille has been modified to bring it more into line with the Renault brand’s other crossovers, with the addition of a chrome strip.

New Captur can be specified with a fixed glass roof (depending on version). Available exclusively in the vehicle’s two-tone configuration, this new feature provides an even brighter cabin.

“We also enhanced the quality inside the cabin by replacing injection-moulded plastic with trimmed materials, and the choice of colours and fabrics is now more sophisticated too,” said Mario Polla, who is Captur design project manager.

The new Captur also comes in a all-new Signature S trim level.

A chrome-detailed grille immediately sets the New Captur Signature S apart.

Signature S versions enjoy a specific range of colours, including the new Amethyst launch option.

The interior ambience of the New Captur Signature S gets heated Nappa leather seats, full-grain Nappa leather trimming for the steering wheel, chrome embellishments, leather-trimmed doorpanels, aluminium pedals and aluminium door sills.

Finally, all of the in-car technologies available as options for the New Captur, including Blind Spot Warning, Easy Park Assist, hands-free entry and keyless ignition, are standard in the Signature S.

These features are complemented by a premium BOSE audio system which transforms the Captur’s cabin into a veritable concert hall, producing authentic, clear and realistic music, worthy of a live performance.

This audio experience is achieved via a system based on seven high-definition BOSE loudspeakers including a subwoofer in the boot.

For the first time, the Captur incorporates Blind Spot Warning, available on certain versions.

Another new addition – available for higher-end versions – is the Hands Free Parking function, which significantly facilitates parking manoeuvres.
