Mere days after Peugeot showed its 2008 crossover, Renault has released details of its very own Nissan Juke competitor called Captur.
Dubbed Renault’s first ‘urban crossover’ the carmaker hopes it will resonate with those needing the driving position of an SUV, the modular interior of an MPV and the agility of a sedan.
The Captur is based on the new Clio platform and will benefit from Renault’s range of proven petrol and diesel engines.
The B-segment crossover combines its compact dimensions with a raised ground clearance and large diameter wheels. It is 4.12m long.
Captur will be customisable with two-tone colour schemes, while the interior is described as ‘colourful’, ‘warm’ and ‘relaxing’.
More usefully, the Captur will have equipment including hands-free entry, Bluetooth connectivity, hill start assist and rear parking sensors. Renault’s in-dash R-Link touchscreen multimedia tablet will also be available.
The production vehicle, which will be shown at the 2013 Geneva motor show, takes much of its inspiration from the Captur concept first seen at the 2011 edition of the car show.
Captur will be manufactured at Renault’s Valladolid plant in Spain.
