Interior & comfort Rating

4.5 out of 5

The Captur is heavily influenced by the Renault Clio supermini and just like the latest version of that car, the Captur’s interior has taken a big step up in quality. There are now soft touch plastics covering most of the surfaces. Technology is significantly improved too, with the option of digital instruments and an infotainment system that works well.

Renault Captur dashboard

One of the key talking points is the new digital instrument display, measuring 10 inches and boasting very crisp graphics. It works well and we prefer it to the standard analogue gauges, so it’s a shame it’s now only on the higher trim levels with the plug-in hybrid powertrain.

Dominating the centre console is a portrait-orientated touchscreen that’s seven inches in size on lower trims and 9.3 inches in top versions. You’ll also forfeit sat-nav at the lower end, but Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, so you can use the map apps built into your smartphone. Renault's operating system isn't as intuitive as something like BMW's iDrive software, but most will likely plug in their phone anyway.

Equipment

Equipment is generous, with some ‘big car’ features such as keyless start, lane departure warnings and LED headlights fitted to even the standard ‘Evolution’ trim. It also comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, climate control, rear parking sensors, emergency auto braking, road sign recognition, hill start assist and cruise control with a speed limiter.

 ‘Techno’ adds 18-inch alloys, roof bars, an auto dimming rear view mirror, automatic wipers and high-beam headlights, electronic handbrake with auto-hold, sat-nav, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera. The interior also gets added synthetic leather touches for a more upmarket feel.

The limited edition Rive Gauche version gets unique exterior styling, a larger 9.3-inch infotainment screen, and an interior finished with more synthetic leather than the ‘Techno’ models.

The Captur E-Tech engineered models come with new gold touches on the exterior trim and wheels and black Renault badges to help them stand out from non-hybrid models. The interior upholstery is also finished in black leather-suede with gold stitching and detailing combined with a dark roof lining and aluminium pedals.
