What used Renault Captur hatchback will I get for my budget?
You can buy a 2013 Captur for just under £5000, at the time of writing, but many of these will be high mileage affairs or Cat D cars. It’s better to spend around £7000 and get a good condition car with an average mileage for the year from an independent dealer. This will buy you either petrol or diesel-engined cars, mostly in one of the lower trims. Step up to between £8000 and £10,000 and you can bag yourself a 2014 car in one of the plusher trims, from an independent or franchised dealer with a full history and a low mileage. Between £10,000 and £12,000 buys you a nice selection of 2015 and 2016 cars, while £12,000 to £14,000 and above will find 2017 cars from franchised dealers.
How much does it cost to run a Renault Captur hatchback?
Naturally enough it’s the diesel-engined cars that are the most economical. The 1.5 dCi 90 versions return a claimed average consumption of 78.5mpg in some trims, while the more punchy 1.5 dCi 110 returns an average claimed 76.4mpg. Both of these will be tax free if registered before the tax changes of April 2017 came into force. Those registered after that date will be charged at the flat rate, currently £140 a year. The 0.9 TCE 90 petrol versions have a claimed average of 55.4mpg.
Servicing plans are available for used Capturs, and these will cover the cost of all routine servicing for up to four years and 40,000 miles. You can spread the cost by paying monthly.
