RENAULT Captur reviewNGC verdict 13.05.2013
Compact 'urban crossovers' are forecast to be the next growth segment in the car world and the stylish but affordable and cheap to run Captur is going to be a big hit for Renault. In Renault's UK range it's likely to be outsold only by the (cheaper) Clio as families plump for its combination of looks, space and practicality.
Huge range of options means, as with the Mini, you can make your car really yours. Ultimately it's not as much fun to drive as the more agile, lighter Clio, but neither are its rivals. The Captur has more street appeal and is better looking than Peugeot's 2008 but lacks a four-wheel option as with Vauxhall's new Mokka contender or the Nissan Juke.
