Renault Captur Coupe Spied: Your Budget BMW X6 For The Masses Is On The Way

Renault teased the reveal of a new crossover coupe model just yesterday and now we get to see more of it, thanks to our skilled spy photographers.

This is the new Renault Captur Coupe, which wants to make the apparently popular bodystyle more accessible to customers that can’t or won’t spend the price asked by models like the BMW X4 or the GLC Coupe.

It will be the first SUV coupe built for the masses, with the test car revealing its sloping roofline and more powerful shoulder lines. The full body camouflage does a good job at hiding the rest of the design. Thankfully the aforementioned teaser revealed that the Captur Coupe will feature Renault’s latest design cues, such as the LED C-shaped headlights we’ve seen in the current Megane.

The engine lineup is expected to include the latest 1.3-liter TCe petrol engine that was co-developed with Daimler and is also featured in the new A-Class. The powerplant will be offered in various states of tune, just like in the Scenic and Grand Scenic models, meaning 115, 140 and 160PS and will be paired either with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

 

Reports suggest that some markets might get the upcoming Captur Coupe with a Dacia badge as well. Renault has already confirmed that production will take place at its Moscow factory, at least initially.

Stay tuned for more, as Renault is planning to reveal the new Captur Coupe in near-production concept form on August 29 at the Moscow International Motor Show.

    It makes sense in their line up, I always thought that the Captur and the duster; although the latter is the slightly more ruggered version, but both are basically the same.

    • Jørn-tommy Skjellnes

      the Captur is a fwd only and the duster you can have in 4wd.

      • Bash

        True true, I know.

  • Pedro Pereira

    Renault Couptur?

  • Tinky-Winky

    Doesn’t Toyota C-HR already cover that niche?

    • Miknik

      It does, but this is likely cheaper, and more mass compatible in general.

      • Tinky-Winky

        Definitely cheaper. That C-HR is overpriced in my opinion, although I still see them everywhere.

    • iea96

      What does that have to be with Renault?

      • Tinky-Winky

        Nothing. Abso-fkn-lutely nothing. I was just questioning whether this new Captur would be the first SUV coupe for the masses.

        • iea96

          Oh now I gotcha. I think the C-HR was trying too hard to differentiate itself with its funky looks, hybrid system, etc. Something more mainstream will definitely appeal to masses and Renault is pretty good at making mainstream cars.

  • iea96

    Yikes. Can already tell this will hurt my eyes

  • Dennis Scipio

    That almost looks like a lifted Sedan.

    • iea96

      That’s essentially what the original Captur was, a lifted Clio.

      • Loquacious Borborygmus

        It’s when you realise this that you see the smoke and mirrors act that goes into these things.

      • Matt

        That’s essentially what every SUV is… a car platform with more ground clearance.

        • Mr. EP9

          I think you mean Crossover. SUVs usually are built on truck frames.

  • Sébastien

    “SUV coupé”… So wrong at every single level

    Sporty: no
    Utility: even less now
    Vehicle: ok that one maybe
    Coupé : meh

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      Hateful shite, isn’t it?

    • Bob White

      Bottom line, I can’t understand why anyone would want a very heavy vehicle with limited cargo and visibility, and questionable handling. On top of that they all look the same with poor aesthetics. Essentially toasters on wheels.

  • Dude

    Looks weirdly shaped. Like an Acura ZDX. Also I just realized that Aucra was 5 years ahead of the SUV coupe trend by like 6 years.

  • I actually think this suits the Captur ‘s target market. Let’s be honest, it never pretended to be anything other than for comfort and driveway gravel, the Duster was the one destined for ‘rugged’.

  • Some ol’ bloke

    I thought this would be a budget x4 if anything, not the x6 which the title suggests?

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      They’ve covered all the bases in the article. If only there was a X2 coupe they could have compared with…

  • driv3r

    Judging by the size of the vehicle I’d rather call this a Renault Kadjar Coupé. Its certainly much bigger than the Mini-SUV Captur.
    And judging by the market it wouldn’t make much sense to offer a Mini-SUV-coupé in terms of cost and margin and fierce competition of the hundreds of body styles available in the compact und sub-compact segment. If anything related to a current model its being based on the Kadjar.

  • Miknik

    Has success written all over it, but are we sure this is Captur based? It looks large, way more Kadjar related than Captur.

    • Bash

      Yeah its larger. But doesn’t mean its not based on the same chassis or underpinnings.
