Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

Oh-so-modest styling and spec changes for Renault's Captur crossover. Still a decent choice, but for how much longer, with so many rivals on the way?

The Captur’s proven formula has made it one of the most popular cars in its segment, and a few slight improvements should serve to bolster its position.

The subtle tweaks to the exterior styling are enough to give it a refreshed appearance without making existing owners suddenly feel like their car is old-hat. Mind you, keep an eye on the likes of the Seat Arona, Kia Stonic and Hyundai Kona which could expose the Captur’s advancing years, especially in the shoddy infotainment department. 

Prospective buyers may find themselves drawn towards the higher engine outputs, but the least powerful Captur is perfectly acceptable. Nonetheless, if you’ve got the extra £900 or so to splash out on the more powerful TCe 120 engine, it is worth it, especially if you’re going to be planning longer journeys.
