Carbuyer Rating

4.3 out of 5

Reliability & safety Rating

4.0 out of 5

The Renault Captur received a full five-star rating from Euro NCAP when it was tested towards the end of 2019. Renault has previously received mixed reviews in terms of reliability, but not many Captur owners encounter problems thus far.

Renault Captur reliability

The Captur is loaded with new components and technology, but it seems to all work as it should. Renault itself came 20th out of 30 brands in our 2021 Driver Power survey. That’s a five-place drop from 2020, but Renault owners gave strong results for low running costs, affordable maintenance and reasonable insurance.

Safety

The Renault Captur received a full five-star rating from Euro NCAP when it was tested, scoring strong results in the adult and child occupancy protection categories of 96% and 83% respectively. The car also scored 74% for its safety assist technology, thanks to a new suite of safety technology that was added when the latest model was introduced.

According to Renault, the Captur has ‘the most comprehensive range of driver assistance systems’ of any crossover, aimed at making driving simpler and safer. Available kit includes a 360-degree camera view, a Highway and Traffic Jam Companion that can help drive the car in certain situations, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and traffic sign recognition. The Captur also has updated autonomous emergency braking that can spot cyclists and pedestrians.
