Renault has launched the facelifted Captur compact crossover in South Africa! Take a look at specification and pricing for the updated Captur range below…
The Renault Captur is a popular model in South Africa and since its local introduction has sold over 6 500 units. Now, the facelifted Captur has arrived to ensure its continued success on the local market.
In terms of styling, the facelifted Captur wears a redesigned upper grille with chrome edging and its front-end look is complemented with LED headlights and C-shaped daytime running lights. The front and rear bumpers also feature new skid plates. The Captur is now offered with new exterior colour choices as well as new 17-inch Black & Chrome alloy wheels. Dynamique derivatives are offered with 2-tone paintwork as standard.
The Captur range welcomes a more affordable Blaze derivative to the range, replacing the outgoing Expression derivative.
On the inside, the Captur features a new leather steering wheel and the seats have been redesigned to offer higher levels of comfort. Heated leather seats are offered as an option on Dynamique derivatives.
Other notable improvements include satin chrome trim, a new continuous-shaped soft-touch dashboard, newly designed gear lever and multi-purpose storage solutions including a new central armrest with a useful storage section offered on Dynamique derivatives.
Key features include a Renault MediaNav touchscreen with Bluetooth, hill start assist, keyless entry, front and rear electric windows, rear parking sensors, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, cornering headlights, cruise control and fingertip controls located behind the steering wheel.
The facelifted Captur features a mildly revised interior but Renault's MediaNav infotainment system is still a highlight.
The new entry-level Captur Blaze derivative is equipped with the R&Go application which is a multi-function smartphone/tablet application connected through the radio via Bluetooth. It enables remote control of the radio with a smartphone offering an extended dashboard display on the screen and comes with a cradle to ensure comfortable use. The R&Go application offers functionality including multimedia, phone, vehicle and navigation.
In terms of practicality, the Captur offers 377 litres, or 455 litres with the rear seats pushed all the way forward. With the rear seats folded flat, space increases to 1 235 litres. The rear seats are split into 3 sections, making the Captur quite flexible depending on your luggage needs. The Captur also features a reversible, 2-position boot floor, allowing you to store items out of sight.
