We’ve seen the official announcement of the refreshed Captur a while back, but now the French brand has presented the subcompact crossover in an even more fashionable way.
Since the Renault Captur is Europe’s top selling model in its segment, the mid-life update that brought things such as LED headlights and the flagship Initiale Paris trim level is well worthy of a second look. The automaker introduced the Captur at the Geneva motor Show this March – with changes that mirror the ones operated on the Clio – meaning they are as subtle as it gets. Among the changes we immediately notice the new LED headlights, new signature LED DRLs or the faux aluminum front skid. Inside the buyers will get the newest version of the R-Link infotainment system complete with Android Auto, which brings even more apps than you could have from Renault’s own store.
The 2017 Captur also packs new color options – Atacama Orange, Ocean Blue, and Amethyst Black, with the latter being available only for the new Initiale Paris trim level. The latter packs new 17-inch alloys and a different upholstery for the seats. The smallest crossover in the automaker’s range keeps the same powertrains – two dCi diesels with 90 and 110 hp, as well as the 0.9 and 1.2-liter turbocharged TCe gasoline, the EDC dual clutch automatic and only front wheel drive.
