UK – Renault Captur gets more powerful diesel engine image

Renault has recently announced the introduction of a more powerful diesel engine for the Captur sub-compact crossover in the United Kingdom.

If you are on the lookout for a new small crossover to use it in a daily basis, than the Renault Captur is definitely worth taking a look at and, if you happen to live in the United Kingdom too, we have one more news for you, as the vehicle in question has recently received a more powerful diesel engine. This is still the 1.5 liter dCi but unlike the previous version, the dCi 90, this has now been transformed into a dCi 110.

This basically means that the engine is now capable of producing a total output of 109 HP (260 kW), meaning 20 HP and 40 Nm more than before. This has been achieved without sacrificing the fuel economy or the CO2 emissions which stand at 76.4 mpg UK and at 98 g/km of CO2, respectively. This is a range-topping version of the Captur which can reach 62 mph in 11 seconds and till go up to 109 mph. Prices for it start from 17,696 GBP.

The Renault Captur is a B-segment crossover aiming at Nissan Juke, Opel Mokka, Peugeot 2008 and so on. This has been introduced, in its production version, at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The model has a 5-door body style, with a front engine and front-wheel drive layout, being related to the new Clio generation and the Juke. Petrol engines include the 0.9 liter TCe and the 1.2L TCe, along with the 1.5 liter dCi, connected to either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.
