The Renault Captur is a popular compact family car and this particular derivative (66 kW dCi Dynamique) is 1 of 3 finalists in its category of the 2017/18 Cars.co.za Consumer Awards, powered by WesBank. #CarsAwards judge Juliet McGuire takes a closer look.
The Captur competes with the Ford Ecosport, Hyundai Creta, Mazda CX-3 and Suzuki Vitara (to name a few examples) and the model, with its funky and colourful character that allows buyers to create interesting colour combinations for the exterior, received a mild facelift for 2017.
The Renault doesn’t skimp on safety or entertainment features and therefore offers very good value for money. This diesel version costs R294 900, but pricing for the range begins at just R229 900. Factor in the 3-year/45 000 km service plan and 5-year/150 000 km warranty and it’s not difficult to understand why the fun-loving Captur continues to sell so strongly.
