Change is afoot at Renault Australia, but it’s still rolling out new products.

    Order books for the 2021 Renault Captur are open ahead of first deliveries in April 2021.

    Three models of the Captur, which shares its bones with the Nissan Juke, will be available in Australia with prices starting at $28,190 before on-road costs.

    It will be the cheapest Renault car or SUV in Australia when it touches down, with the Kadjar SUV retired early and plans to replace the ageing Clio hatchback axed.

    Power comes from a four-cylinder petrol engine which actually puts the Juke in the shade for both power and torque.


    • 2021 Renault Captur Life: $28,190
    • 2021 Renault Captur Zen: $30,790
    • 2021 Renault Captur Intens: $35,790

    All prices exclude on-road costs.


    Only one engine will be offered in the 2021 Renault Captur.

    The four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine has 113kW of power and 270Nm of torque.

    It’s mated with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission across the range.
