Two-tone paintwork will be offered on the Captur, along with external graphic packs and interior decor options. Eight Zip Collection seat covers will be available, and there are six interior accent colours to choose from.
Elsewhere in the cabin, the Captur features a rear bench that can slide 160mm to allow boot capacity or rear legroom to increase. The former ranges from 377 to 455 litres with the seats raised. Renault is also introducing its Easy Life glovebox to the Captur, capable of holding 11 litres and easily accessible by the driver. It won't be offered on right-hand drive models, models, however.
Laruens van den Acker, Renault's design chief, said "Renault hasn't always been about being first, but it has been about being the first to bring products to the mainstream. We can do that with the Captur, which puts us at the heart of the B sized crossover market. For once there are no lies - it's a good-looking car that also has impressive interior space. There is room for personalisation, to make it trendy, but also a side of it that appeals to common sense.
"We are seeing almost 60 per cent of Clio sales are personalised in some ways - not always in a major way, but with a few stickers or something small - and we expect that to grow with the Captur.".
Standard equipment on every Renault Captur includes Bluetooth, USB connectivity and a removable boot floor. The Renault R-Link infotainment system, recently introduced on the Clio, will also be an option.
The Captur will be initially offered with three engine choices. A 1.2-litre TCe petrol is available with either 89 or 118bhp, the latter with a dual-clutch EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) transmission only. The 88bhp diesel emits 95g/km of CO2 when equipped with a manual.
Underpinned by the latest Clio platform with wider tracks and a longer wheelbase, Renault promises 'responsive handling... amongst the very best in the class' for the Captur.
As you would expect from Renault, the Captur features a wealth of safety kit. The usual complement of airbags and Isofix seat mountings is joined by anti-whiplash head restraints and impact detection pressure sensors. Driver aids include Electronic Stability Control with Roll Movement Intervention.
