Renault Lifts the Curtain on New Captur Small Crossover, the French Juke

JANUARY 11, 2013
Carscoop

After the release of a teaser image and a video earlier this week, Renault pulled the wraps off the all-new Captur, a sub-compact crossover that will make its world debut at the Geneva Salon in March before arriving in showrooms across Europe in late spring.

The new Captur is the French version of the Nissan Juke, with which it shares its platform architecture that also underpins the Renault Clio Mk4. At 4,120mm (162.2-inches) long, the Captur is only 5mm (about 0.2-inches) shorter than the Juke.

According to Renault, the Captur combines the "expressive styling and driving position of an SUV, the cabin space and modular interior of an MPV, and the agility and driving enjoyment of a compact hatchback".

While it may borrow the name of the athletic three-door Captur Concept from 2011, when it came to the design, Renault chose to look more towards the latest Clio than the study itself.

Renault says the Captur will offer many customization options including a two-tone color scheme that produces a contrast between the roof and pillars and the rest of the bodywork, as well as a choice of colors and motifs for the different trim features in the cabin.

Looks like Renault didn't want to be outdone by its smaller rival.

Is it just me or does the side profile and design look similar to the new Escape?

If the Juke and the Aztek got into an ugly contest....


I don't want to think of the consequences for mankind.
