In order to make the Captur more attractive in the UK, Renault announced a new top-of-the-range trim level called Signature. Priced from 17,495 GBP, the 2015 Renault Captur Signature is based on the Dynamique S MediaNav version and adds exclusive features as standard.
When it comes to exterior design, the Captur Signature shows 17-inch Explore alloy wheels with black inserts, chromed exterior details on the front grille, fog lights, side strips and boot lid.
Moreover, the vehicle is available as standard with a two-tone exterior finish and with an optional Flame Red metallic paint. In addition, Renault offers a choice of three metallic and two solid colours. As expected, the interior also received several upgrades such as part-leather upholstery, Signature door sill plates, Signature floor mats, but also the Red Touch Pack that adds bright red details to the centre console, air vents and speakers.
When it comes to technology, Capture Signature comes with the R-Link infotainment system that includes a 7-inch touchscreen, satellite navigation, USB connectivity, a 4 x 35W Arkamys radio with 3D sound, a rear parking camera and the Grip Xtend advanced traction control system.
Other highlights include electric folding door mirrors, automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, dark tinted rear windows and tailgate, Bluetooth connectivity and LED daytime running lights. Renault will offer the Captur Signature with a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines.
The petrol lineup consist of a 0.9 liter TCe 90 bolted to a five-speed manual transmission or a bigger 1.2-liter TCe 120 mated to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The 1.5-liter dCi 90 diesel engine is available with both manual and automatic transmissions.
Renault’s newest urban crossover – the Captur – is essentially a realized fusion of an MPV, an SUV and a hatchback, as marked by flowing lines, characteristic proportions, generous ground clearance, wide tracks and raked, forward-set windscreen and large wheels.
Moreover, the new Captur could be subjected to an extensive personalization program as it is available with a wide range of customizable features and details, allowing the new crossover to appeal to different tastes and preferences.
For instance, its two-tone bodywork is available in several configurations while there is a wide color palette for its wheels. The new Captur is also available with light and dark interior trims, a selection of upholstery fabrics, as well as various graphic motifs.
The French carmaker gave its designers the creative freedom to style the new Captur. As a result, the new Captur presents considerable features and generous interior space. A bit longer than the new Renault Clio, the new Captur features a compact exterior but has a roomy interior. The crossover also delivers a suitable balance of space
between passengers and cargo, thanks to the sliding rear bench seat, as this feature could accommodate up to 455 dm3 of luggage. The passenger cabin, meanwhile, is provided with an ingenious large drawer-type glove box – with the capacity of 11 liters -- that the driver could easily reach. The cabin is available with removable seat covers that can be unzipped, machine washed and refitted.
On the other hand, the new Captur features the in-dash Renault R-Link multimedia tablet for connectivity access, as loaded with a large library of motoring applications.
Designers gave the drivers of the Captur with a comfortable raised position that inspires confidence. This is backed by a number of passive safety features as well as superb road-holding and braking performance. Thanks to the B platform that underpins both the new Captur and new Clio, the crossover offers a new level of ride comfort.
