The car is a chameleon in terms of its looks, incorporating elements of a people carrier, SUV and hatchback – and the signature Renault diamond logo brings it all together. The lower door protectors are a touch generally found on more rugged vehicles, and the lightly tinted windows have a more premium feel. You can specify the mirror caps and roof to contrast with the rest of the body, and automatic lights and wipers are standard (if not optional) at all except the entry-level trim.
The Captur has an unusual yet useful keycard entry system, which even more helpfully goes hands-free at higher specifications. A flexible and logically arranged interior awaits you, with a Bluetooth® connection, USB socket for device charging, trip computer and cruise control. A range of Interior Touch Packs will accent the centre console, speakers and air vents in black, grey or chrome. The three-seat bench seat in the back can split and fold down to make more boot space – up to 1,235 litres, in fact. Every seat is ergonomically 'shell-shaped' and surrounded by thoughtful storage options, such as the door pockets and compartments on the top of the dashboard that can hold 1.5-litre bottles.
