2018 Renault Captur Is Improved, But Is That Enough?

During its mid-cycle facelift, the Renault Captur gained a new grille, new skid plates, new wheels and three new body colors.

Inside, Renault claims it has fitted higher quality plastics to go with the revised door panels, gear lever, new seats and the updated tech, like the latest version of the R-Link infotainment system with Android Auto and a premium Bose sound system. Meanwhile, standard equipment includes both Easy Park Assist and Blind Spot Warning.

According to Carwow’s review, even though the materials were indeed updated, there are still some rough plastics and an extremely flimsy armrest. On the plus side, the cargo room is very versatile, there are plenty of storage spaces and, on the move, this car does a great job over bumps. The thing is that, when it comes to cornering, the Captur is actually not that great.

If you are interested in the 2018 Captur, it’s best to go with the 1.2-liter turbo petrol, as it’s quite swift and does 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in under 10 seconds. Buyers who travel a lot of miles, however, would be better off with the 1.5-liter diesel instead.

In the end, while you might want to put the 2018 Captur on your buying list, you should also see what else is out there, especially if you want your small crossover to come with more than decent driving dynamics. As for the complete review, just scroll down and watch the video that follows.
