Renault Captur gets new R.S. Line and SE Limited trims

Sporty R.S. Line and good-value SE Limited models join the Captur SUV range

  • Both models get more standard equipment 
  • Refreshed interior and exterior styling 
  • A choice of three powertrains available 

The Renault Captur is now available in two new trims called R.S. Line and SE Limited, bringing the total number to five. The R.S Line becomes the range-topping model and gives the car a sportier look, while the SE Limited focuses on extra equipment.

The R.S. Line and SE Limited models join the existing Play, Iconic and S Edition variants, which are available with petrol and hybrid powertrains.

Similar to the R.S. Line versions of the Clio and Mégane, the Captur R.S. Line offers a sporty design inside and out, while the SE Limited bridges the gap between Play and Iconic trims, offering a greater level of in-car technology and freshed exterior styling. 

Design and specifications 

Priced from £23,800, the R.S. Line rides on 18-inch alloy wheels and is finished in two-tone exterior paint with a contrasting roof. It gets LED headlights, rear privacy glass and a bodykit, which consists of a grey, muscular front bumper with a honeycomb grille and a matching grey rear diffuser. R.S. Line badging also features on the wings and tailgate, while chrome twin tailpipes complete the look. 

The sporty theme continues inside, with R.S. Line upholstery, a perforated leather steering wheel, a faux carbon fibre dashboard trim, a black headliner, aluminium pedals and red air vent surrounds. 

Like the Captur S Edition, R.S. Line models get keyless operation, front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and automatic air-conditioning as standard. The cabin is also equipped with a 9.3-inch infotainment system, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

The Captur SE Limited starts from £20,300. It sits on 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels as standard and gets LED headlights, privacy glass and special “Limited” exterior badging. The standard equipment list continues with rear parking sensors, climate control and keyless entry, along with a host of safety equipment. Driver aids include lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking and cruise control. 

SE Limited cars get a seven-inch infotainment system, featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Google search and live traffic updates as standard.

To coincide with the introduction of the R.S. Line and SE Limited trims, Renault has made a few adjustments to the rest of the Captur range. The entry-level Play, for example, now comes with rear parking sensors as standard, while the mid-range Iconic gets automatic high beam and Renault’s 3D-effect rear light clusters. The S Edition, meanwhile, now sits on 18-inch alloy wheels.

Powertrains and performance 

The Captur is available with a choice of three powertrains. The entry level TCe 90 is a turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine, which produces 89bhp and 160Nm of torque. It’s linked to a six-speed manual gearbox and has a claimed fuel consumption figure of 47.9mpg.

Next is the TCe 140 mild-hybrid petrol. The 1.3-litre four-cylinder engine produces 138bhp and 260Nm of torque. It can sprint from 0-62mph in 10.3 seconds and go on to reach a top speed of 122mph. Like the TCe 90, it’s matched to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard but buyers can upgrade to a seven-speed automatic at a cost of £1,600.

R.S. Line cars are also available with a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) setup, comprising a 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, an electric motor and a 9.8kWh battery. It has a combined power output of 158bhp and 340Nm of torque and can complete the 0-62mph sprint in 10.1 seconds. It starts at £32,695.

Renault says the PHEV can achieve up to 188.3mpg and emits just 34g/km of CO2. Drivers can enjoy up to 31 miles of pure-electric driving when the battery is fully charged.
