The Top Gear car review:Renault Captur
For:Looks, multiple options, refinement, economy
Against:Could be more practical, just another car hopping on the bandwagon
What is it?
The Captur is Renault’s take on the booming baby crossover market. It was one of six to be launched in 2013 from various different manufacturers, and Renault is hoping that by jumping on this particular bandwagon it’ll help turn around its fortunes. It needs to – sales have been falling recently.
The Captur doesn’t offer anything different to rivals: it’s based on the two wheel-drive Renault Clio but with a raised ride height. Renault has stuck to the script here, hoping that the punchy looks will help the Captur stand out. And it certainly looks exciting, particularly in vivid orange.
