The 2018 Renault Captur is relatively new model, which appears to fight its way in SUV market. It is doing well so far, and its progress is magnificent. This is probably because of the partnership with Nissan, a leader company in the segment. French carmaker clearly benefits of it. Short history of the Captur begins in 2011. However, first model came two years later. At same year, Korean buyers got its version of the vehicle under the name Samsung QM3. In Russia, in 2016, buyers can buy Kaptur. All these buyers will be able to buy new copy of this crossover in 2018.

Modernization comes on connectivity features, with iPhone port, touch-screen display and BlueTooth.
