We can see the appeal of the Renault Captur’s 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. What’s more, the Puma is a better all-rounder and the Kamiq more comfortable and practical. If you do get one, we recommend the E-Tech Full Hybrid 145 in Techno trim.

The entry-level trim gives you plenty of standard equipment, including 17in alloy wheels, keyless start, LED headlights, automatic climate control and cruise control. You also get a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system.

You won’t be able to travel far under electric power alone compared with the E-Tech 160 plug-in hybrid, but this version will cope with short bursts at low speeds without needing its engine. Performance is reasonably sprightly in town thanks to its electric motor, but this trails off significantly when the engine takes over to get you up to motorway speeds.
