Renault Captur RS Not Coming Yet, But Remains a Possibility…

Read more

Since there are so many hatchback-based front-wheel drive crossovers cropping up in the market, why not also try to turn them into hot hatches? It’s not the worst marketing decision the automakers that offer them could make, so why not give it a shot? One of these vehicles that could get a performance version is the Renault Captur, but according to a report by GoAuto, such a model is not planned yet, but it’s not out of the books either.

Renault Reportedly Killed Off Modern Interpretation of R4 for Captur

Read more

It’s clear that Renault thinks retro-modern looks are still in fashion, as the next Twingo will bear more than just a passing resemblance to the Clio’s precursor, the R5. However, according to GoAuto, the French automaker was planning one more retro model, which was going to harken back to the R4, which is an even older rhombus-badged small hatchback introduced in 1961.

It seems that Renault’s former management, led by ex-COO Patrick Pelata who was forced to step down in 2011, was really interested in the creation of a heavily retro-influenced car with R4 styling cues, and that development of the vehicle had already commenced and was well underway.

I've expressed my deprecating opinion on front-wheel drive crossovers, seeing them as pointless and mere marketing tricks specifically designed to sell more hatchbacks, but I can’t not like the new Renault Captur, simply because it is handsome to behold – it is one of the prettier rhombus-badged cars of recent years.

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

Read more

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.
