The second-generation Captur has been in the works for quite some time. Back in April, we spotted a prototype testing in Southern Spain; that particular car was covered in black and white camouflage but didn’t appear to have so many changes. This video and newly-surfaced image of the crossover demonstrate that the French automaker did a good job at hiding the new looks.
The first thing you’ll likely notice about the new Captur is the presence of lobster-claw shaped headlights much like the Megane and other models in the Renault family. These new headlights have proven to be somewhat controversial for Renault but certainly add some additional aggression to the vehicle.

While the headlights are drastically different, the shape of the central grille is quite similar to the current model, but the lower fascia is now a separate unit flanked by fog lights on either side. A silver scuff plate is also visible on the front bumper, similar to the existing Captur.
The new crossover is based on the CMF-B platform, which allows Renault to install a series of new powertrains. These are expected to include a plug-in hybrid with a 9.8 kWh battery that offers an all-electric range of approximately 30 miles (50 km). There might also be a mild-hybrid diesel in the future, alongside the traditional turbo petrol and turbo diesel engines.
The new Captur should make its official debut in the next couple of months.
