    About the Renault Captur

    The Renault Captur, the French brand’s smallest SUV, enters 2024 unchanged.

    Renault Australia increased pricing by $1200 in June 2023 for the base-model Captur Life and Zen and the Intens had a $700 price increase.

    The four-variant lineup opens at $33,000 before on-road costs for the Life and extends to $41,300 before on-road costs for the flagship Captur R.S Line.

    Last year Renault introduced wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on all variants, as well as a lane centring function on Intens and R.S. Line models.

    Interior

    Photos and Images of the Renault Captur Interior

    This is one of the nicest compact SUV cabins money can buy.

    For starters, it’s a handsome little thing from behind the wheel. The design is clean and modern, with unique touches such as the wing-style centre console and iPad-style touchscreen helping elevate it above the crowd.

    The materials all feel excellent, too. The leather on the seats is soft, and the steering wheel feels like a quality item. Even the dashboard and doors are trimmed in soft-touch materials, and pack ambient lighting with a range of colour options.

    It’s not perfect. That wing-style storage space feels a bit wobbly when you bump it with your knee, and the transmission selector looks sharp but feels a bit toy-like.

    Overall though, it makes a Ford Puma look and feel a bit mundane.

    The fundamentals are good, too. The driving position verges on too high for tall drivers, but there’s more than enough leg- and headroom up front.

    Most the major controls are where you’d expect them to be – cruise control is finally on the wheel, not the transmission tunnel – although the audio control pod behind the steering wheel takes some getting used to.

    This is still a Renault, so there’s still some uniqueness there. We like the pod, others don’t. Try before you buy.

    Exterior

    Photos and Images of the Renault Captur Exterior

    On the Captur Life there's 17-inch alloy wheels as standard with a single-tone exterior colour as standard. There are also LED headlights and tail lights as standard.

    Stepping up to the Captur Zen gets you the same 17-inch alloy wheels as the entry-level Life but a black-painted roof as standard.

    The Captur Intens gains 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels, chrome exterior highlights, satin grey roof rails.

    The flagship Captur R.S. gains sporty-looking additions inside and out, including a Formula 1-inspired front bumper, but no extra power.

    How it Drives

    Our expert take on Renault Captur drivability?

    The 2024 Renault Captur’s 1.3-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine produces 113kW of power and 270Nm of torque.

    A compact SUV with a small displacement engine and a dual-clutch transmission doesn’t sound like a recipe for driving fun, but the Captur is seriously well sorted.

    For starters, Renault has ignored the lower-powered engine fitted to the Juke and instead has brought only the more powerful option to Australia.

    It’s mated with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, with drive sent to the front wheels only.

    Sure, 113kW and 270Nm aren’t quite hot hatch numbers, but they’re more than enough to make this little Captur feel sprightlier than the average SUV.

    It’s hooked up to a dual-clutch transmission that, although not quite as smooth as an old-fashioned torque converter, is relatively smooth around town.

    It can be a bit hesitant off the mark, but once you’re up and rolling it shifts quickly and has a good idea of which gear you’ll need, and when you’ll need it.

    Beware though, it’s slow to jump from drive to reverse, and is combined with a slightly vague little gear selector that doesn’t clunk from drive, through neutral, and into reverse. Three-point turns require a second glance at the screen just to be sure you’re actually in the gear you thought.

    Like the related Nissan Juke, the Captur feels surprisingly lively. The steering is light and quick, and there’s plenty of grip from the Continental tyres if you get enthusiastic.

    Of course, quick and light steering is also ideal for darting through gaps in traffic and sneaking into tight parking spaces. All-round visibility is good, although there’s a bit of lag from the slightly grainy camera system when you flick into reverse.

    Even the ride is well sorted. There’s the occasional thud from the 18-inch alloy wheels over really sharp bumps, but otherwise the Captur floats along better than a small SUV on big alloys really should.

    The only real knock on refinement is the amount of noise generated by the tyres on anything other than perfect tarmac. It’s not alone in being noisy – plenty of small SUVs get a bit uncouth on coarse-chip roads – but it’s decidedly out of keeping with the polished way the car otherwise drives.

    Should you buy the Renault Captur

    Is this the right car for you? Our experts buy or not guide.

    The last Captur was a real disappointment. This one more than makes up for it.

    It ticks the boxes you’d expect a Renault to tick, with a unique look and stylish, luxurious interior relative to its strong set of rivals.

    It also drives with some sophistication, thanks in no small part to the punchy engine under the bonnet.

    Spec carefully, though. Adaptive cruise really should be standard on even the base model, and the digital instruments are worth having.

    They undermine the value equation slightly, but they also improve what is already a classy little crossover.

    Competitor Analysis

    What other cars should you look at?

    The Renault Captur's most direct competitor would be the Nissan Juke as it shares its 1.3-litre turbo engine and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

    It has a more interesting interior than the Ford Puma, but also doesn't sell as well as the Mazda CX-3, Volkswagen T-Cross and Toyota Yaris Cross.

    The Captur even rivals larger small SUVs like the style-focused Toyota C-HR and also has more boot space, albeit without the hybrid powertrain option.

    Renault Captur Interesting Facts

    Did you know?

    There's soon going to be a Mitsubishi ASX successor based on the same CMF-B platform as the Renault Captur and Nissan Juke.

    This will mean each automaker in the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance will have an SUV built on the CMF-B architecture.

    The ASX successor is going to be made at a Renault plant in Europe and sales will begin on that continent in 2023.
