Fully-Camouflaged 2019 Renault Captur Goes Out Into The World

We’ve already seen spy shots of the 2019 Renault Clio so this first sighting of the second-generation Captur crossover doesn’t really surprise us.

After all, the Captur is essentially a jacked-up Clio and things will stay the same next year when both models will get redesigned. Unsurprisingly for its first public appearance, the Captur wears quite a lot of camouflage. Besides the foil, the crossover also features padded disguise in the areas Renault want to keep hidden.

Notice the unusual hoops on the roof and the work done to hide the design of the C-pillar and even the cutout of the rear passenger windows. Still, all these efforts can’t hide the fact that the upcoming Captur will be an evolution design-wise.

It will combine the original model’s shape and stance with Renault’s latest design language. We can barely see through the camouflage but the LED taillights appear to have a rather different shape than on the current model, with designers adopting a thin horizontal shape. All in all, it does look more muscular than the other Clio-based crossover.

While the exterior will remain familiar enough, the interior will go through a more significant overhaul. As with the new Clio, the Captur will receive a technology upgrade, with the cabin expected to gain a portrait-style touchscreen at the center of the dashboard. A digital instrument panel is likely to become available as an option.

Always like the new Clio, the Captur will use a modified version of the CMF-B platform. At launch, Renault will offer two different gasoline engines, possibly 1.0- and 1.3-liter turbocharged units — the latter developed by Renault-Nissan and Daimler. A diesel option is likely to arrive later on, as is a plug-in hybrid version.

The all-new Renault Captur is expected to debut in the summer of 2019 and arrive in European dealerships in autumn.
