New crossover from famous French carmaker is coming as 2017 Captur. This company is well-known around the globe, but it hadn’t so much success with SUVs as it was with other classes. Now, it might be time for changes. In cooperation with Nissan, Kadjar crossover entered the market. Now, with new knowledge, 2017 Renault Captur could be much more successful than any off-road vehicle from its factories before. According to announcement, this is possible and other result is not an option for owners and board.
2017 Renault Captur engine
It is still unknown what is going to be installed under the hood of the 2017 Renault Captur. We believe that both gasoline and diesel unit will be available in various trims, but petrol is taking place in entry-level models. That could be 1.6-l four-cylinder unit, mated to a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. This combination is good for 150 hp. Other possibility is TCe engine. This unit is ready to deliver 100 hp and 100 lb-ft of torque, while TCe 120 powertrain could be used for higher trim, Grand Captur, and it can produce 120 hp and 140 lb-ft of torque. Estimated fuel economy will be a main advantage over the competitors, but exact spec numbers are unknown yet.
2017 Renault Captur redesign
Renault is well known for elegance of their vehicles. Maybe crossover class is not popular, but styling is superb. Exterior lines and design can give a hint for sophisticated interior. Some parts and features are borrowed from Nissan, since two companies had fruitful cooperation. New 2017 Renault Captur is going to be offered in orange color by default, but there is wide choice in color palette for other schemes. Company logo is on the black grid on the grille, and near that we can find LED lamps installed in headlights. Shapes of these are changed, and new Captur is now more aggressive than before. Small spoiler and large wheels are making perfect opposition.
Interior is elegant and comfortable, powered by leather seats and new dashboard. Infotainment system is updated R-Link by Renault, and it has USB and Bluetooth connectivity. From touch-screen display, users can control air-conditioning, music playlists or even watch photos from their smarthphones.
