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.

The Renault Captur shares many of its parts with the Renault Clio supermini and features most of that car's engine range, too. As a result, you can pick between punchy yet efficient small turbocharged petrols or efficient but noisy diesels. The Captur looks like a small off-roader, but there's no four-wheel-drive model and the focus inside is on practicality – the seat covers can even zip off so you can wash them.
