As expected, Renault has unveiled its Captur revised and corrected at the Geneva Motor Show. If the overhaul is more aesthetic than technical, it has also allowed the manufacturer to introduce an additional level of finish. Today, the smallest crossover best sold in Europe has indeed right to the finish Initiale Paris.
This so-called new Captur has everything … Kaptur. It is the extended model (it has gone from 4.12 m to 4.33 m) sold abroad. If this small SUV reserved for the Russian market hides the entrails of Dacia Duster (chassis and transmission), its appearance is very clearly copied on that of the Captur, whose dashboard it also takes back. But since 2016, the Russians had already benefited from the front shield at the diurnal fires forming a C.
On the other hand, under the hood of this Restyled Captur, marketed in May, it is the status quo. There are therefore the three-cylinder 0.9 TCe of 90 hp and the four-cylinder 1.2 TCe of 120 hp in gasoline, as well as the 1.5 dCi in diesel, in its declinations 90 and 110 hp.
To support it at the other end of the SUV segment, Koleos now announces its ranges and expected launch date for next June. Remember that it is the first cousin of the Nissan X-Trail but that it will not be proposed in 7-seater version not to shade the new Grand Scénic.
