Renault Captur sizes and dimensions guide

The Renault Captur rivals the likes of the Nissan Juke, Peugeot 2008 and Ford EcoSport. It’s built on the same platform as the Renault Clio, which means it’s inherently small – read our guide to discover exactly how compact it is.

If you’re taken by its French charm, put the Renault Captur in our car configurator to see how much carwow could help you save.

Exterior dimensions

Despite its compact Clio-based origins, the Captur is a noticeably bigger car. Its ride height is raised and the entire body is larger in every dimension. This helps it offer more interior space than its supermini sibling.

Exterior dimensions
Length 4,122mm
Width (excluding wing mirrors) 1,778mm
Height 1,566mm
Wheelbase 2,606mm

Interior dimensions

Thanks to its larger body, the Captur offers a larger interior than the Clio. Official figures aren’t currently available for the Captur’s legroom, but reviewers say it’s ample in the front and acceptable in the back. Very tall rear seat passengers might start to grumble over a long journey, though.

Interior dimensions
Front headroom 905mm
Rear headroom 860mm
Front elbow room 1,380mm
Rear elbow room 1,370mm
Rear knee room 215mm

Boot space

The Captur beats the Nissan Juke and Ford EcoSport in for boot space. Not only does it have a decent boot, but it also has a clever trick up its sleeve with under-floor stowage as well as the option to completely remove the back seats for additional cargo space when needed.

Boot space
Boot space excluding under-floor storage 377 litres
Boot space including under-floor storage 455 litres
Boot space with rear seats folded 1,235 litres

Turning circle and fuel tank

A fairly tight turning circle helps the Captur become an easy city driving companion. Equally the medium 45-litre fuel tank means that you can go pretty far between fills.

Turning circle and fuel tank
Turning circle 10.42 meters
Fuel tank 45 litres


Although the Captur’s footprint is relative small, the extra height and chunky styling means it carries a few extra pounds over the smaller Clio.

Weight (dry) 1,109-1,204kg

Towing capacity

The Captur is a small city-friendly crossover so doesn’t have the necessary weight to tow a really heavy trailer. Buyers with light towing needs, however, should be able to get by with the little Captur.

Towing capacity
Max braked towing weight 900kg
Max unbraked towing weight 590-630kg
