The all-new Renault Captur is breaking new ground in 2020, the popular compact SUV/Crossover is getting a makeover plus a long list of new equipment and tech, including a wide range of hi-tech autonomous driving features. The Captur is also getting a more efficient range of engines including an all-new E-tech Hybrid engine. Read on for further details.…
2020 Renault Captur New Design
The all-new MK2 Captur is bigger (2cm wider and 11cm longer) than its predecessor, you also sit slightly higher in the driver seat. The new exterior design sports new moulding that envelopes the entire vehicle encompassing the moulded wheel arches, the more SUV-centric looks are finished off with aluminium roof bars and a wider front grille.
Despite the clear move towards a stronger SUV look, it by no means detracts from its appeal, in fact if anything its significantly more attractive than the older/outgoing model. The body shape is more sculpted along the sides, the reshaped bonnet and new front grille look impressive while the roof slopes down to the rear of the vehicle elegantly offsetting some of the more rugged SUV design tweaks.
2020 Renault Captur Colours & Customisation
Two-tone exterior colours and customisation options have been a massive part of the Captur’s success with eye-catching body colours offset with contrasting body moulding and roof colours.
Renault say the all-new Captur will offer 90 different customisation combinations with 11 paint colours available including striking colours like Atacama Orange, Flame Red and Iron Blue. With four contrasting roof colours (Midnight Black, Atacama Orange, Highland Grey and Alabaster White) and three different customisation packs available at launch, people who like to get creative will have plenty to get their teeth into.
For those who like to be little less conspicuous there’s a new classy ‘Amethyst Black’ body colour available with the new INITIALE PARIS trim-level.
2020 Renault Captur Interior
The new wider and longer Captur now boasts rear space that rivals best in class vehicles, the boot is significantly bigger than the outgoing Captur too, offering 531 litres of space, that’s 80 litres more than the old Captur.
The interior gets an upgrade, it looks and feels classier than the outgoing Captur with more soft-touch materials on the dash on door panels.
The dashboard has had an overhaul with a new floating central panel that frees up space for storage. There’s an impressive new 9.3-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system powered by Renault’s EASY LINK multimedia system; Renault say the touchscreen is the biggest in class.
There’s also a new 7-inch colour digital instrument panel which is upgraded to 10-inches on higher grade models with the addition of some navigation functions.
2020 Renault Captur New Driver Aids & Tech
As we edge towards autonomous vehicles, Renault in alliance with Nissan and Mitsubishi are certainly not lagging behind where technology is concerned. Options include what Renault call the ‘Highway and Traffic Jam Companion’ which combines adaptive cruise control, stop and go and a lane centering assistant. There’s also an automatic emergency braking system, blind spot monitoring, traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning assist and lane keep assist.
Other available driver aids include a 360° camera, reversing camera, rear cross traffic alert warning, 12 parking sensors around the vehicle that aid with front, rear and lateral parking. There’s also something called ‘Easy Park Assist’ that helps with parallel parking.
2020 Renault Captur New Engines
Despite its larger size the new Captur weighs about the same as the older model thanks to some lighter build materials.
A range of petrol and diesel engines will provide improved power whilst returning better fuel economy figures and lower emissions thanks to the latest cutting-edge technology. Engines will be available with a mixture of manual and dual clutch automatic gearboxes with power output ranging from 100 to 155 hp for petrol models and 95 to 115 hp for diesels.
The big news is a new state-of-the-art hybrid engine named the E-TECH Plug-in developed under the Renault Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance. The new hybrid is packed with ground breaking technology and Renault say that more 150 patents were registered in relation to the new hybrid engine.
The new hybrid combines a 1.6-litre conventional petrol engine with two electric motors and 9.8kWh battery, it also utilises braking regeneration technology. Renault say it can travel up to 28 miles in full electric mode meaning short daily round-trips to work could keep running costs very low indeed.
