Review

While we can see the appeal of the Captur’s funky looks and affordable pricing, its engines are rather weak and it doesn't ride or handle particularly well. Interior quality is good on top-spec versions, but all are rather cramped in the back.

Trim: Iconic

Mid-spec Iconic trim is worth considering because it adds built-in sat nav, rear parking sensors, keyless entry and start, tinted rear windows and funky two-tone paint.

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. Its performance isn’t too shabby when you work it hard, but it doesn’t feel as eager low-down as the T-Cross’s smaller TSI 115 engine. Comes with a six-speed manual as standard with a seven-speed automatic as an option.
