Renault Captur fans have been biting at the bit for the 2019 model to hit showroom floors and they certainly weren’t disappointed when it did. The Captur has always been a staunch favourite with the local compact SUV crowd (in fact, over 1.2 million units have been sold globally since its launch back in 2013!) and the elegant updates that had been made to the existing design have only served to cement its popularity even further.
So what exactly can you expect when you get behind the wheel of the 2019 Renault Captur? Here are the crib notes:
More Room To Manoeuvre & Sleek Styling
The new Captur is 110mm longer and has a higher waistline than the outgoing model. The inside legroom is also 17mm roomier and there will be 81L of additional space in the boot area. Front- and rear protection skid plates, chunky cladding and wheel arch extensions give it a strong, yet elegant, stance reminiscent of the Duster.
Infotainment is the name of the game inside the Captur’s SmartCockpit, which can be fitted with a screen of your choice. The multimedia system can support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and there is also the option to push out the boat with a BOSE premium audio system and sunroof. Not to mention safety features like active emergency braking and a 360-degree camera.
A Full Range of Engine Options
The Captur is powered by a range of petrol and diesel engines while a plug-in hybrid model will join the line-up at a later stage. As such, South African motorists will be able to weigh their options carefully and select a model that suits their lifestyle requirements in this regard. In the end, it’s all about what you prefer and how you prefer to drive.
