Geneva: Renault introduces facelifted version of Captur for 2017MY

Article by Christian A., on March 3, 2017

Around four years after Renault launched its Captur subcompact crossover in 2013, the French carmaker has decided to make several changes on the way this elegant vehicle looks. Thus, for the 2017 model year, the Renault Captur will be receiving a facelift just enough to make it still appealing.

Furthermore, the interior also received several updates, with six interior personalization packs to choose from. Customers could now choose from Caramel, Ivory, Ocean Blue, Patina Chrome and Red, Satin Chrome to color the interior of their new Renault Captur.

Renault will unveil the new Captur subcompact crossover at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Exterior Design

According to the French carmaker, the facelift of the 2017 Captur involves a number of visual and technological tweaks both on the exterior and the interior. For instance, the vehicle’s LED daytime running lights are now integrated into the front bumper, forming the brand’s signature C-shape graphics that is more noticeable when the DRLs are illuminated.

Likewise, the headlight graphics of the new Renault Captur are now also changed. The visual design of these headlights also harmonizes with the signature grille of this subcompact crossover. These headlights flank the Captur’s updated signature grille that now looks similar to other crossover offerings of the French carmaker – thanks to the addition of a chrome strip. In addition, the new Renault Captur is now available with full LED “Pure Vision” headlights.

Featured as standard on the higher-spec versions of this stylish crossover, these LED “Pure Vision” headlights don’t only improve safety as well as efficiency, but also help accentuate the Captur’s overall appearance. These have been upgraded to more closely resemble that of Renault’s other crossovers, notably with a chrome strip. Front and rear, the bumper includes new skid plates underscoring Captur’s adventuresome personality.

Meanwhile, the rear lights of the new 2017 Renault Captur come with a similar lighting signature as the LED DRLs on the front – they form C-shape light graphics. Also noticeable on the lower front and rear ends of the 2017 Renault Captur are new skid plates that help emphasize the vehicle’s adventurous nature. Likewise underscoring the adventurous personality of the new Captur is the available fixed glass roof, which is offered for the third trim level and up. For customers of the crossover’s first three trim levels, they could now select from four wheel types.

Completing the visual updates for the 2017 Renault Captur is the availability of more colors for the vehicle’s two-tone body. Two new exterior colors have been added for the body of the subcompact crossover -- Atacama Orange and Ocean Blue. Likewise, the roof could now also be specified in new color – Platinum gray. Overall, there are more than 30 color combo from which customers could choose from in order to make the 2017 Renault Captur more suited to their personal taste. Five exterior packs are also available for the subcompact crossover’s wheel bolts and door panel strips -- Atacama Orange, Cappuccino, Ivory, Ocean Blue and Red.
