For The Captur offers an elevated driving position, decent practicality and impressive refinement. It’s well priced and equipped, too.

Against Cabin quality is underwhelming and the engines feel pretty weak.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The best engine is the 0.9-litre petrol. It's no ball of fire, but is gutsy enough in town. The diesel is generally more pleasant to drive than the auto-only 1.2, which is fine when you’re pottering about, but is hesitant when moving away from a standstill and feels lazy when you want to go faster.

We’d opt for Dynamique Media Nav trim, which brings the colour touch-screen sat-nav system that makes the cabin look much more modern-looking, is easy to use and improves the car’s resale value.
