We’re not stock brokers, but if B-segment crossovers were a stock option, it would be the hottest on the market right now.

Cars like the Ford EcoSport have been an enormous success, in fact, the EcoSport accounted for over 45% of Ford’s sales in SA last year. But Ford would have known that at some point the party would become very crowded, and with the Renault Captur, it certainly has.

The Captur is very closely based on the Clio, a car which is also hugely popular in SA. The two lower models use the same 0.9-litre, 66 kW engine as the Clio, while the range topping 88kW Dynamique, featured in this video, uses a 1.2-litre four-cylinder turbo.

And thankfully the Captur also borrows heavily from the Clio’s attractive looks. In fact, with the extra height, we think it has more stature, and more presence.

In this video, Ciro takes an in-depth look at the new Captur, and compares it to three of its rivals, which we have detailed for you below.
