While we can see the appeal of the Captur’s funky looks and affordable starting price, by the time you get an engine with enough power coupled to the right trim, it's not that cheap. And all the engines are relatively weak next to those offered in the better-handling and better-packaged Ford Puma; it doesn't ride anywhere near as well as a Volkswagen T-Roc; plus, if it's space you're after, the Skoda Kamiq is much bigger and has a nicer interior.get the best price
Trim: BOSE Launch Edition
This expensive top-end model comes with 18in alloy wheels that make it ride worse and an eight-speaker (with a subwoofer) BOSE sound system.
Engine: 1.3 TCE 130
At 1.3-litres, this engine is not only bigger than the entry-level TCe 100, but it also gets an extra cylinder to make it smoother. Its performance isn’t too shabby when you work it hard and it's the best engine in the Captur range, but it doesn’t feel as eager low-down as the T-Cross’s smaller 1.0 TSI 115 engine or Ford Puma's 1.0 Ecoboost 125 MHEV. Comes with a six-speed manual as standard with a seven-speed automatic as an option.
