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 to those in the better-handling and better-packaged Ford Puma. The Captur isn't as comfortable of practical as a Skoda Kamiq, either.

get the best price

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 though, because it's too expensive.

This 1.3-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol is the best all-round engine in the range, pumping out 138bhp. It's not as quick as the Ford Puma 1.0 Ecoboost 155 MHEV but acceleration is still surprisingly brisk with 0-60mph taking around 10 seconds. You can opt to have the TCe 140 with a manual or automatic gearbox.
