Renault Captur SUV - Practicality & boot space

A sliding set of rear seats helps juggle boot space with passenger legroom

Practicality & boot space Rating

4.5 out of 5

Despite being a relatively small car, the Captur stole lots of sales, from the Nissan Juke in particular, by being far more practical. Longer and wider, the second-generation Captur is even better, with passenger and luggage space that borders on the room offered in SUVs from the class above.

Renault Captur interior space & storage

Space in the rear seats is generous, and the driver and front passenger will enjoy a good view out. This is thanks to a taller seating position than most hatchbacks, fairly tall windows and a slim A-pillar with a quarterlight window to help eliminate blind-spots.

Boot space

The Captur’s party trick is that the rear bench slides by 160mm back and forth. This isn’t unheard of, but it’s rare in the crossover class and gives the Captur a sizeable 536 litres of boot space when pushed forwards. It’s worth noting, though, that this won’t be comfortable for adults in the back. 

With knee and legroom restored, boot capacity shrinks to (a still decent) 404 litres with the bench slid fully rearwards. Standard boot space is also slightly smaller for the diesel (388 litres) and E-Tense (379 litres) models because of their extra mechanical hardware. With the seats slid all the way back in the E-Tech there's only 265 litres of space.
