Renault Captur

The Renault Captur is the French company's entry into the small SUV market. It's based on the same platform as the Renault Clio, and is designed to offer more space than the supermini. It's a rival for small crossover models such as the Nissan Juke and Vauxhall Mokka, although it promises to be more spacious than either of these two. The Renault Captur has been designed to offer MPV-like practicality inside, and there is lots of kit as standard, while Renault's excellent 1.5-litre diesel means sub-100g/km emissions are on offer. Prices are competitive with rivals in the class.

Pros
  • Five-star safety rating
  • Stylish looks
  • Decent practicality
Cons
  • Not much fun to drive
  • Expensive compared to Clio
  • Two-wheel drive only

Available only with two-wheel drive, the Renault Captur is basically a Clio on steroids. It feels very similar to drive, though the raised ride height means it's more comfortable on long motorway journeys. The engines are all economical, while the light steering and good visibility make it a doddle to manoeuvre around town. If you like the Renault Clio but need the increased practicality of a small crossover, the Captur could be the car for you.
