Renault Captur: 2016 updates revealed

Renault Captur 2016

Renault has just revealed a list of updates for the Renault Captur 2016, including a new powertrain

option, and exciting extras.

The time has come for the Captur to receive a well-deserve update. Fans of the crossover, will be

excited to learn that a new powertrain option has been added to the mix, making the vehicle

appealing to more people. On top of that, a special “Iconic Nav” edition has been announced, and a

variety of new extras, some of which will come as standard with the new model.

The Captur has been around since 2013; however, in that short time it has proved itself to be a

reliable crossover, and a serious contender on the market. Although, it’s not the most extravagant or

luxurious of vehicles, it’s perfect for those after something slightly larger, yet not quite as big as a full

on SUV.

Although, much hasn’t changed about the Captur appearance-wise, the crossover is back, with an

exciting new powertrain option. Customers will now be able to choose a 1.2-litre TCe 120 engine

with a six-speed manual gearbox. It’s not the most powerful engine out there; however, it adds a

little variety to the Captur, making it more enticing to potential buyers.

Renault has also announced that, for a mere £19,175 customers will have the option to purchase the

new special edition Captur, with white pearlescent paint and a black and blue finish. On top of that,

the special edition car will feature 17-inch allots and leather upholstery.

Features such as an infotainment system, reverse parking camera and sat-nav will come as standard,

so customers opting to go with the standard Captur, will still enjoy a variety of exciting extras.

Expected to go on sale later this year, with prices starting at around £14,575, the new Captur is

shaping up to be a solid vehicle that’s likely to do well on the market.
