The name Captur reflects the spirit of Renault’s new urban crossover. In line with the “Explore” petal of Renault’s design strategy, Captur invites customers to take part in an adventure, to discover the world together. The production model maintains this propensity for escapism. The over-sized wheels, the comfortable road clearance and the soft, inviting forms are conducive to dreaming. And to all forms of exploration, whether extraordinary or more ordinary.
Renault Captur will be unveiled at the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show in March.
