Renault Captur SUV (2013-2019) - Interior & comfort

The Renault Captur is one of the most comfortable cars in its class, but some of the interior plastics aren’t particularly good quality

The interior is one of the areas Renault has improved the most for the facelift, introducing more soft-touch materials to improve the feeling of quality. The Captur has a height-adjustable driver’s seat and steering wheel, so getting a comfortable is very easy.

As with the exterior, there’s plenty of scope to give the Captur’s interior a personal touch. For instance, the seat covers can be unzipped, allowing you to change them for a different design or wash off any dirty marks or stains.

The Captur’s dashboard has never been its strongest point, but Renault has made it more competitive with its facelift. More soft-touch materials have been added to improve the feeling of quality and there’s now a two-tone covering for a more attractive design. Lighter shades look even better, as too much black can make the Captur look austere.

Equipment

The basic Play trim includes two-tone paintwork, 16-inch alloy wheels and an R&GO smartphone app that includes navigation.

The Iconic model features some chrome interior touches and a seven-inch colour screen fitted in the centre of the dash. All Captur models from the Iconic trim level upwards are fitted with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. There’s also climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels, leather embellishments and tinted rear windows for security and privacy. S Edition, a relatively new trim, adds LED headlights, different alloys and sportier interior touches like dark headlining, red stitching and Alcantara suede trim on the seats.

Go for the GT-Line range-topper and the Captur looks more rugged and gets some of the latest features like cornering foglights and self-parking. There’s also front and rear parking sensors, a rear view camera, folding door mirrors, a part-leather upholstery and heated front seats.

Options

For optimum comfort, you should avoid the 17-inch alloy wheels. We’d also recommend spending a little extra on a space-saver spare wheel, because you don’t get one as standard and puncture repair kits aren’t always effective.

A part-leather interior will also add a touch of class, and a large panoramic sunroof (available for GT-Line models) will let lots of light into the interior. but really most of the options are concerned with how your car looks from the outside – contrasting roof colours and bright alloy wheels are the order of the day here.

A Techno Pack can be added to the Iconic trim to include the upgraded R-LINK navigation and infotainment system, which is standard in GT-Line models, for £600. It also includes front and rear parking sensors and a rear view camera.
