Ford Puma rival ups its sporting appeal with new range-topper, available with three powertrains

Renault has expanded its performance-inspired RS Line model range with a new edition of its Renault Renault Captur crossover. 

Arriving alongside a new SE Limited trim option, the Captur RS Line takes styling cues from Renault 's full-fat performance models - namely a "Formula 1-style" contrasting front splitter, a honeycomb-pattern grille and a prominent grey rear diffuser. It joins similarly conceived versions of the Renault Clio and Renault Mégane hatchbacks, and will be sold alongside an RS Line variant of the new-to-Europe Renault Arkana crossover later this year.

Bespoke RS Line badging, chrome trim elements, 18in 'Le Castellet' alloy wheel designs and a chrome twin-exit exhaust round off the styling package. 

Inside, the RS Line is marked out from other Captur variants by its aluminium door sills, red upholstery stitching and stripe motifs and a carbonfibre-effect finish for the dashboard. 

Sitting at the top of the Captur range, with prices starting from £23,800, the RS Line brings standard equipment including the top-rung 9.3in infotainment touchscreen with Bluetooth and smartphone mirroring functionality, as well as keyless entry, parking sensors at each end, a reversing camera, automatic air conditioning and ambient interior lighting. 

It is available with a choice of two petrol powertrains, producing 88bhp and 137bhp respectively, or the Renault Captur E-Tech PHEV option, which promises 31 miles of EV range and up to 188.3mpg on the WLTP combined cycle. 

The new Captur SE Limited, meanwhile, is priced from £20,300 and not available with the E-Tech powertrain. Two-tone paint and a contrasting black roof are standard, as are 17in alloy wheels, privacy glass, bespoke grey upholstery and a 7.0in infotainment system.
