The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

If the raised driving position promised by a small SUV is what you’re after, the Renault Captur will appeal to you – you sit higher up from the road than you do in a Skoda Kamiq, for example. The seat, steering wheel and pedals line up well, so you're not sitting at an odd angle. Unlike in rivals including the Ford Puma, Kamiq and Volkswagen T-Roc, adjustable lumbar support isn't available.

The air-conditioning is operated by physical controls rather than a touchscreen, which is a good thing and keeps distraction to a minimum. You get standard analogue instrument dials on most models, which are replaced by a 7.0in digital display in S Edition cars or a 10.0in one in the E-Tech hybrid and plug-in hybrid models.

Sat nav and infotainment

Entry-level Play models get a 7.0in landscape-oriented infotainment touchscreen that’s mounted high up on the dashboard. It comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, a DAB radio, Bluetooth and built-in sat-nav. The icons are a touch small and the screen could be sharper and more responsive.  

If you opt for R.S. Line trim or the plug-in hybrid E-Tech, you'll get a larger (9.3in) portrait touchscreen that can show more information. It's better than the smaller screen, but we still rate the system in the Mini Countryman, with its rotary iDrive controller, as the best in the small SUV class.
