For this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Renault will present one of its showstoppers in the form of the new Captur. The popular B-segment crossover is expected to come with an upgraded design, inside and out, and some new equipment.
Renault says that the new Captur keeps the essentials that made it a success, including its two-tone body colour option. That said, personalisation options have been extended with two new body colours: Desert Orange and Ocean Blue, and a new roof colour, Mercury Silver.
As with Renault’s latest models, the new Captur features full LED headlights (depending on the version). Meanwhile, the daytime running lights are built into the lower bumper in a C shape while the rear lights get the same signature. The grille has also been upgraded to more closely resemble that of Renault’s other crossovers, notably with a chrome strip. From the third trim level up, the Captur can be fitted with a fixed glass roof. Available only in two-tone configuration, the new feature improves ambient light in the cabin.
Engine and gearbox configurations are expected to be carried over from the current car. We will have to wait till March 7 for full details because that’s when Renault will officially unveil the new Captur at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
