Most of the smallest SUVs have big flaws, but the Clio-based Captur is different.
For starters, it has a spacious and user-friendly cabin and is one of the quietest cars of its kind. What's more, its low list price and CO2 emissions make it easy to justify as a private or company buy.
Renault's engineers clearly worked hard to make it a safe car, too, because the Captur was rated highly for adult, child and pedestrian protection when it was crash-tested by Euro NCAP.
Meanwhile, our preferred trim - Dynamique MediaNav - gives you everything from automatic lights and climate control to Bluetooth and a touch-screen sat-nav system.
The Captur certainly isn't perfect; you need to work its engine quite hard just to keep up with traffic, and the dashboard is made from plastics that feel hard and cheap. However, when you're getting this much kit for this little money, such failings are easier to understand and forgive.
