The Renault Captur

The Renault Captur Has Been Discontinued

The Renault Captur was the first of the Renault family to combine the ruggedness of an SUV with the practical space of an MPV. The Captur was built to take people to work, to school, to the shops or on holiday. With a choice of two petrol and one diesel engine, and with loads of safety features as standard, the Captur set a very high bar in its segment. The Renault Captur range has, like many good things, come to an end in South Africa, but you can still pick up a very good late-model used Renault Captur. Alternatively, why not look at the new Renault Kiger or the segment-leading Renault Duster?
