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's not that cheap. All the engines are relatively weak next to those in the better-handling and better-packaged Ford Puma. The Captur doesn't ride anywhere near as well as a VW T-Roc, and the Skoda Kamiq is much bigger with 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.
