Renault Captur gains style-focused S Edition trim level

A smarter interior includes some extra technology but car comes at a higher price

A new trim level for the Renault Captur has been revealed, promising extra style and technology. The ‘S Edition’ offers a contrasting roof as a no-cost option, plus plenty of touches designed to liven up the Captur’s interior. The Captur S Edition is on sale now with a starting price of £19,625.

The Captur was Renault’s third best-selling model in Europe last year, behind the Clio and Megane hatchbacks. It’s a compact SUV that rivals the SEAT Arona, Nissan Juke and Hyundai Kona.

To give the interior a few sporty touches, the seats are trimmed in Alcantara suede fabric, while the steering wheel, gear lever and handbrake are trimmed in leather. The headlining in an S Edition Captur is much darker, and aluminium pedals are fitted. There are also red elements dotted throughout the interior, including on the seats, air vent surrounds, and around the edge of the touchscreen.

Renault Captur S Edition interior

The S Edition features a healthy range of equipment, including a seven-inch touchscreen with sat nav and DAB radio, rear parking sensors, plus automatic wipers and lights. Outside, the car’s decorative elements are painted grey, and model-specific 17-inch alloy wheels are fitted. Six colour choices are available, with a black contrast roof available at no extra cost. You can opt for the roof and mirrors to be in Renault’s Ivory and Mercury colours but it makes the car slightly more expensive.

Apart from the 89bhp petrol engine, the Captur’s normal engine range is available to S Edition buyers. That means you can choose from two petrol engines with either 128bhp or 148bhp, and an 89bhp diesel engine. An automatic gearbox is available with the diesel and the higher powered petrol engine. Whichever gearbox you choose, you can expect around 52mpg from the diesel and 43mpg from the petrol engines.

However, if you want a sporty-looking, well equipped Captur, Renault already offers a GT-Line model. Buyers of this trim also get LED front fog lights with a cornering function, front parking sensors and a rear-view camera. Renault says the S Edition sits beneath the GT-Line but the latter is £900 less than the new trim level - the GT Line starts from £18,725 and the S Edition starts from £19,625.
