Review

We can see the appeal of the Renault Captur’s funky looks and affordable starting price, but by the time you get an engine with enough power coupled to the right trim, it doesn't look quite such a bargain. All the engines are relatively weak compared with those in the better-handling and better-packaged Ford Puma. The Captur isn't as comfortable or practical as a Skoda Kamiq, either.

S Edition adds front parking sensors, a rear-view camera, a 9.3in infotainment touchscreen, a 7.0in digital instrument cluster, blind-spot monitoring, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, interior ambient lighting and wireless phone-charging. We wouldn't recommend it because it's too expensive.

This entry-level engine is disappointingly sluggish; there's very little urgency unless you work it hard. The more powerful TCe 140 makes far more sense.
