Renault Captur 2019 LHD front cornering

While we can see the appeal of the Captur’s funky looks and decent refinement, our experiences so far suggest that weak engines, a lumpy low speed ride and so-so rear space hamper it.

Trim: Play

Even entry-level Play trim gets electric front and rear windows, climate and cruise control, automatic wipers, a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, LED headlights, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping warning and assist, a variable height boot floor, a sliding rear bench and 17in alloy wheels.

Engine: 1.5 dCi 115

Another engine we haven’t sampled, although, again, its higher price is off-putting. Unless you drive to the moon and back every year and desperately need an automatic gearbox, we’d stick with one of the cheaper petrol engines.
