The Renault Captur, Or The French Weapon Against Nissan\'s Juke
|   Saturday, January 12, 2013
The Nissan Juke has pioneered an unexplored segment until its debut. Success was quick to appear. One by one, other leading manufacturers have chosen this path, driven by the commercial success of the current Juke.

The Renault Captur is a developed SUV based on the class B platform of the Clio. The car will have its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show (2013 March 7 to 17) and hails from the concept Capture (March 2011).

Perhaps knowing that our world does not really take things seriously if you say it is just that, a crossover, Renault has chosen to present the new model as being a crossover Captur just on the outside, because inside it is an MPV, and the attire is that of a sedan.


"The new concept is based on the fundamental design language introduced on the DeZir, but has a technical dimension and it's functional without losing the sensuality," said Alex Breun, head of Renault's concepts.

French carmaker said in another statement that the Renault Captur is the first urban crossover which is distinguished by exceptional qualities and characteristic of the 3 worlds: an expressive style and the driving position typical of an SUV, the modularity of a minivan, plus the handling and driving pleasure characteristic of a compact sedan.

Debuting with the launch of the new Clio, Renault's design strategy continues renewed with the city Captur SUV, codenamed J87.
"Renault Captur is a compact crossover without being aggressive, but with pronounced practicality. It's a car that obviously incorporates Renault genes, "said Benoit Bochard, Director of range segment A and B in the Renault.

With a compact and dynamic silhouette, the new Capture comes with a high ground clearance, large wheels and protection with side underbody belly, a typical attribute of models, which lend themselves for shy outputs in rough terrain. Like the new Clio, which is also similar, it promises a lot of customization options.

The most interesting part is probably the one that allows you to choose different roof colors. Even official photos exposed a copy in orange, which was applied to a roof and pillars painted in a contrasting white.
Measuring 4.12 meters in length, the Renault Captur is promoted as an MPV with a crossover allure. It is helped in this respect by the high driving position, the trunk and the many generous storage innovations.

The standard equipments of the new model are numerous, with performances worthy of the upper segment: hands-free card, assistance on starting the ramp, camera and reverse parking sensor, and last but not least, the Renault R-Link. In addition, the car is equipped with an audio system with 6 speakers, Bluetooth and audio streaming.

The range of engines will be provided by current existing diesel and gasoline ranges. The candidates for use are the 1.5 and 1.6-liter dCi unit and the smaller TCe 0.9 liter engine. Renault promises that the most effective version of the model will have emissions of just 96 g/km.
The car will compete on the market with models like Nissan Juke, Opel Mokka, Chevrolet Trax, Peugeot 2008 and the Ford EcoSport.
