Review

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

We'd suggest jumping up to this mid-spec Iconic trim. It adds 17in alloy wheels (Play has wheel trims), roof bars, privacy glass, a contrasting roof colour, rear parking sensors and in-built sat-nav.

Available only with a seven-speed automatic gearbox, this top-spec 1.3-litre feels a bit stronger than the TCe 130, but given its higher price, we’d avoid it unless you must have more poke.
