Motability - Access

The Renault Captur is packed with a number of features that should help with getting in and out if you have restricted mobility. For a start, its front doors open wider than most other small SUVs (67 degrees to be specific), which simply means that they’re well out of the way when you need them to be. Bear in mind, however, that you might need to reach out a long way to reach the door when you want to close it.

The door aperture is also a reasonable size, so you won’t need to contort yourself too much when getting in and out. This holds true for the passenger, too, because the dashboard is shaped so that it doesn’t hamper access.

With the back seat in its rearmost setting, a folded wheelchair will fit in the boot, and when the seats are tipped forward for maximum loading space, you’ll have no need to collapse the chair before putting it in the boot.

That said, the boot opening itself is just 670mm tall and 1020mm wide, so getting a large bulky item, including a wheelchair, into the boot is slightly trickier than it is in some rivals, such as the Juke with its 760mm by 1115mm opening. 

There’s also a variable-height boot floor in every version bar the E-Hybrid model, and when this is in its highest position there’s virtually no boot lip for you to have to lift things over. Better still, it leaves a handy storage area beneath, for you to place valuables out of sight.
