DAB Radio is now standard on most Renault Clio and Captur models

Buyers of the new Renault Clio and Captur will be able to take advantage of certain spec upgrades. All Clio and Captur models with either the MediaNav or R-Link infotainment systems will feature DAB radio as standard equipment.

This excludes the entry level versions of the Renault Clio and Captur, since these base models are without MediaNav or R-Link infotainment systems. With the addition of DAB radio, drivers and passengers alike could now tune in to more radio stations while on a trip.

The good news doesn’t stop there. Renault has also made available upgraded versions of the MediaNav and R-Link. Upgrades for the Medianav system include the addition of features like Bluetooth streaming and TMC traffic information, as well as SIRI “Eyes-Free” for compatible iPhones.

Renault may increase the output of its Captur subcompact crossover by a third next year to cope with the rising demand for small sports utility vehicles in Europe. Rochelle Chimenes, a spokeswoman for Renault, told Automotive News Europe that they expect to build 120,000 Capturs by the end of 2013, and possibly 160,000 units next year if needed.

IHS Automotive expects annual sales of subcompact SUV/crossovers to reach 582,790 units in Europe by 2016 from 307,300 this year. According to data from market researchers JATO Dynamics, segment sales surged 38 percent to 213,804 vehicles in the first half.

Captur was launched in April and it joined other newcomers in this segment in Europe like the Peugeot 2008, Chevrolet Trax and Opel/Vauxhall Mokka.

Renault’s YouTube video featuring its Captur mini-crossover is as controversial as it is effective in attracting attention. Here is why. The video shows a gang of masked daytime robbers who forced two innocent people -- a man and a woman -- to help them get away in a Captur to a given destination.

The robbers had their “victims” use the navigation application of the R-Link infotainment system installed in the Captur to guide them to their “base.” It turned out in the end that all was an act. The video has generated over 5 million views since its release in June.

Viewer reception for the YouTube video was mixed, with 494 hitting “Dislike” versus 579 clicking “Like.”

Renault Captur has secured a five-star rating from the European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP) after acing the body’s passive safety tests. The small crossover achieved a global score of 80.5 percent, becoming the 15th Renault model to earn Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star passive safety rating. Renault Captur’s high safety score was a result of the adoption of a precise, responsive chassis.

The carmaker aimed for Captur to provide the same high standard of passive safety as the New Clio, since both cars are underpinned by the same platform.

Renault’s excellent safety performance was achieved through research on road accidents as well as on the real-world behavior of motorists – all done to develop safety solutions founded on a more holistic, efficient approach.

The styling of Renault’s new compact crossover, the Captur, is inspired by the Clio. The Captur, which will be a rival to the Nissan Juke and Peugeot 2008, will be presented this March at the Geneva motor show. It will be launched in the UK in late spring. The Captur name originates from a completely styled concept car that appeared at the 2011 Geneva show.

None of its unusual features like the concept’s scissor doors have been carried over to production. What will be kept though are its ethos and the concept’s name. Many of the Captur’s features come from the Clio.

The Captur will feature the new fourth-generation supermini’s prominent front-end and sculpted side surfaces. But Renault said that the Captur is distinct from the Clio and will be offered and sold separately from the basic supermini.

Renault revealed today the Captur Concept, a new design study that will make its word debut in March, at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. As you can see from the photos, the new Renault Captur Concept carries the same design philosophy seen also on the DeZir Concept defined by the simple, sensuous and warm style.

Designed as a fun and sporty crossover for young people, the new Captur Concept adopts the new front grille seen on the DeZir Concept and its design is completed by the 22-inch black and white rims. The interior is exactly what you expected from a concept car and features fluorescent highlights picked out by a constant stream of light.

According to colour and trim designer, Kana Watanabe, the inspiration came from the human body, outdoor sports and urban styling. The vehicle is powered by the Energy dCi 160 twin-turbo engine concept which will eventually replace the 1.9 dCi.
