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.
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.
|Width (excluding wing mirrors)||1,778mm|
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.
|Front elbow room||1,380mm|
|Rear elbow room||1,370mm|
|Rear knee room||215mm|
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 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||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.
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.
|Max braked towing weight||900kg|
|Max unbraked towing weight||590-630kg|
