MITCHELLS NEW MINI SUV ARRIVAL WILL “CAPTUR” YOUR HEART
Love the style and versatility of the Clio but looking for something more spacious with a higher riding position? Then you’ll be pleased to hear that Mitchells Renault in Lowestoft is now offering the Captur -Renault’s head-turning new urban crossover.
The Captur is a high-riding big brother to Renault’s best-selling Clio, blending hatchback, MPV and crossover characteristics into a versatile package aimed at families.
Renault is renowned for safety and the Captur has received the marque’s 15th five-star Euro NCAP rating. It feels safe too as it rides higher than the Clio hatch and is more family-friendly thanks to its bigger boot with variable floor and sliding, split-fold rear bench.
As well as being safe, it looks great too thanks to its flowing lines, large wheels, swept-back headlights, generous ground clearance and steeply-raked windscreen.
Perfect for families as well as busy people who like to carry a lot of leisure kit, the Renault Captur is roomy and practical. With one of the largest boots in the class, it has a sliding rear bench seat and a maximum load space of 455 litres.
Driving pleasure is a huge focus for the Captur and drivers will love the raised driving position, which is 100mm higher than the Clio, as well as the highly-interactive in-dash Renault R-Link multimedia tablet which provides access to a whole new level of connectivity, with plenty of dedicated motoring apps.
It doesn’t disappoint at the pumps either – the Energy dCi 90 uses just 76.4 mpg and emits just 95g of CO2 per km, which are record low figures for Captur’s class.
The Captur starts from just £12,495 on-the-road and that includes an impressive range of core equipment in all four trim levels; Expression, Expression+, Dynamique MediaNav and Dynamique S MediaNav.
The Expression includes 16” alloy wheels, 60/40 split and sliding rear seat bench, body coloured bumpers, cruise control, ECO mode, ESC (Electronic Stability Control), ETC (Electronic Traction Control), front and rear electric windows, HSA (Hill Start Assist), speed limiter and trip computer.
Next, the Expression+ includes all of that plus front fog lights, body coloured door mirrors and handles and hands-free key card. It also features auto lights and wipers, as well as climate control.
Predicted to be the UK best-seller, Dynamique MediaNav, brings in the world of personalisation as well as the zipped seat covers which can be simply wiped or washed.
Its personalisation comes in the form of a chrome colour pack giving sporty good looks, plus centre console, air vent and gearlever surrounds. It also includes “MediaNav”, the integrated multimedia tablet with seven-inch touchscreen, including Navteq Nav ‘n’ Go satellite navigation, 4x20W Arkamys radio, Bluetooth, USB and handsfree technology.
The top-of-the-range Dynamique S MediaNav contains plenty of premium touches such as electric folding door mirrors and rear parking sensors (City Pack). It also adds heated front seats and an attractive contrasting roof.
Matthew Huke-Jenner, managing director of Mitchells Renault said: “The Clio is tremendously popular here in Suffolk and beyond so the Captur should also inspire similar loyalty as it combines the best of three worlds; the MPV, SUV and family hatchback. Here at Mitchells, we are very excited by Captur which is one of the most stylish, versatile, frugal and keenly-priced additions to the supermini crossover market yet.”
