The B-segment crossover sports an upgraded design inside and out
Renault will showcase the facelifted Captur crossover at the Geneva Motor Show, with the model getting both cosmetic tweaks and upgraded equipment.
With this makeover, Renault aims to maintain the Captur as Europe's best-selling B-segment crossover (215,570 units sold last year). The most visible changes occur at the front, with the crossover gaining a new face that brings it closer to its bigger brother, the Kadjar.
The front end of the 2017 Captur receives a new pair of headlights (available with full LED technology), while the LED daytime running lights now have a C shape — the brand's light signature. The refreshed LED taillights feature a similar signature as well.
More subtle tweaks include the addition of a chrome strip to the grille, new skid plates front and rear, as well as new alloy wheel models. Four wheel types are available for the first three trim levels, 16 and 17 inches.
Renault says the Captur offers more personalization possibilities thanks to two new body colors (Atacama Orange and Ocean Blue), and a new roof color (Platinum Grey). Customers can choose from more than 30 different two-tone combinations.
In addition, there are five exterior packs available (Ivory, Ocean Blue, Cappuccino, Red, and Atacama Orange) for the wheel bolts and door panel strips. Inside, the Clio-based crossover offers six personalization packs: Ivory, Ocean Blue, Caramel, Red, Satin Chrome and Patina Chrome.
New equipment includes a fixed glass roof from the third trim level up. Available only in two-tone configuration, the new features contributes to a brighter interior.
Renault will give more details about the refreshed Captur at the Geneva Motor Show next week.
