The new Renault Captur
The Renault Captur Model will have a starting price of £12,495, meaning it will undercut the Nissan Juke, it's rival, by £500. Full specifications for the model have been announced and this means that when the Order books open on the 1st of May, the new Captur model will be undercutting the cheapest Juke from Nissan by £500.
Four different trim levels with the Renault Captur
From the launch of the Renault Captur, four different trim levels will be available with the model. The Dynamique MediaNAv and the Dynamique S MediaNAv and the Expression and Expression +. All models will come rather generously equipped with alloy wheels, cruise control, stop start, electric windows and sliding back seats and is also available with a choice of two engines, which will both be from the current Clio range from Renault.
Power for the petrol vehicle comes from an 0.9 litre 3 pot engine with 89 brake horsepower which is said to emmitt 115g of CO2 whilst the alternative diesel is a 1.5 litre engine with the same 89 brake horsepower output and a tax free emission figure of 95g. Both come with standard 5 speed manual gearboxes and can be personalised with a host of different interior and exterior upgrades chosen from 3 colour co-ordination collections, called Miami, Manhattan and Arizona.
Renault Dynamique MediaNav is expected to be the greatest seller
Renault have predicted that the Dynamique MediaNav will be the greatest seller of the four, it comes with a 7 inch touchscreen sat-nav as is expected hence it's name, larger alloys, Bluetooth and USB connectivity along with a leather trimmed steering wheel and climate control. This specific version also comes with the innovative feature of seat covers that can be removed and washed to keep the interior looking fresh, no matter how much time has gone by.
This model also comes with the option of a more powerful 119 brake horsepower petrol 1.2 litre turbocharged engine that comes as standard with the EDC dual clutch gearbox, whilst an automatic diesel version will be available later on this year. When the model arrives the Dynamique S version will be the most expensive Captur, coming in at £18,895. The Nissan Juke will not be the only Captur rival, the Renault model will also be up against the Chevrolet Trax and the new Peugeot 2008 along with up and coming rivals from Audi and Ford.
