World debut at the Geneva motor show in March
Renault Captur urban crossover liberates
The more adventurous face of the new Clio

Renault Captur urban crossover SUV: front-side (3/4) view from top.

Overall length of 4.12 metres with a modular interior.

18 Jan. 2013, Elie Aoun: Announcing the first official details of its upcoming urban crossover SUV, the Captur, French carmaker Renault didn't wait too long to "compliment" its direct competitor, Automobiles Peugeot, for the recent announcement of the Peugeot 2008 crossover SUV.

So, rather than one, we'll get the world première of two French small crossovers at the 83rd Geneva Motor Show this year (public days from 7 to 17 March), the Peugeot 2008 and the Renault Captur.

Larger wheels, higher ground clearance and bolder sills.

Just like the 2008 is based on the Peugeot 208 supermini (B-segment, sub-compact, small category) platform, the new Renault Captur, which will be manufactured at Renault’s Valladolid plant in Spain, adopts the platform of the new Renault Clio subcompact, which is also "embraced" by the Nissan Juke.

Small world, isn't it? Well, sharing the same platform within the Renault-Nissan alliance is only logical in the club of large automotive groups.

Judging from the pictures, Renault's Captur looks really cute in styling, better than the original Renault Captur concept car of the 2011 Geneva motor show.

Standard hill start assist and rear parking sensors.

With an overall length of 4.12 metres (equivalent to the Juke, and slightly shorter than the Peugeot 2008's 4.16-metres), Renault promises a spacious (for the car's segment of course), user-friendly and modular interior with various stowage solutions, like an MPV, but with the agility of a small car.

In turn, the larger wheels, higher driving position and ground clearance (than a hatchback), bolder sills and forward position of the windscreen contribute to the promised SUV driving feel.

Many options in materials and connectivity.

Moreover, and to better deserve its "urban" status, Renault seems to have prepared flexible options to customise the Captur. The two-tone colour scheme, to start with, highlights the contrast between the top (roof and pillars) and the lower body, from the waist down.

On the equipment side, Renault says that the standard Captur will include hands-free entry, hill start assist and rear parking sensors, in addition to options like the new in-dash Renault R-Link touchscreen multimedia tablet, a system with six loudspeakers, Bluetooth connectivity, audio-streaming and Arkamys hi-fi sound.

Inline with the Clio model, the new Captur will also offer modern petrol and diesel engine choices. Additional details should be available later at the Geneva Motor Show, but those who are eager to know more a bit earlier, they can visit the dedicated www.captur.renault.com website from the 5th of March.
