The 2024 Renault Captur Is Redefining Expectations In The Subcompact SUV Segment

Midway through its lifespan, Renault updated the Captur with the brand's most recent aesthetic language and added extra goodies to the inside. The updated 2024 Renault Captur now has a more eco-friendly design without, and, most importantly, the top-of-the-line Esprit Alpine trim is now available.

Gasoline, liquid petroleum gas, mild hybrid, and full hybrid powertrains are all present and accounted for, with the exception of diesels. A new front fascia gives the 2024 Renault Captur an appearance reminiscent of the bigger Rafale and the Scenic E-Tech.

Under Gilles Vidal's leadership, the design team sought to give the urban SUV a more refined appearance. Here, arrow-shaped daytime running lights on the modified front bumper complement the new headlights that come standard with full-LED technology. The taillights have new LED graphics, but otherwise, the bodywork is mostly unaltered.

The 2024 Renault Captur is now available in fourteen different color schemes and has new wheel designs spanning seventeen to nineteen inches in diameter, as well as the revised Renault symbol. The Esprit Alpine is now the range's top trim, replacing the defunct RS Line. It stands out because of the gloss black highlights, Slate Gray bumper inserts, and 19-inch alloy wheels that are exclusive to this edition.

Interior details include eco-friendly fabric seats, French and Alpine flag decals, blue stitching, a gray dashboard inlay, and metal pedals. The updated Captur's digital cockpit has a bigger 10.4-inch touchscreen for the OpenR infotainment system and a new 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster. The latter uses the most recent version of Android, Android Automotive 12, which has Google built-in. A wireless charging pad, two or four USB-C charging connections, hour-lighting, and a nine-speaker Harman Kardon audio system are all available to occupants.

The 2024 Renault Captur, measuring 166.9 inch in length, maintains its family-friendly nature. The spacious cabin features sliding rear seats, an in-cabin storage capacity of 0.9 cubic feet, and an adjustable boot size ranging from 17.1-21.8 cubic feet based on the number of seats occupied. Even with its revamp, the Captur stays true to its time-tested CMF-B foundation.

Nevertheless, in an effort to enhance the driving experience, Renault engineers adjusted the geometry of the suspension, shock absorber characteristics, and steering calibration. Plus, the Esprit Alpine has Michelin tires that are stickier (225/45R19), and the most powerful models have brand-new shocks. Before the redesign, the choice of powertrains remained the same as in the Captur. At its most basic, the 1.0-liter turbo TCe three-cylinder engine produces 89 horsepower or 99 horsepower when converted to LPG. It comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission.

When coupled with the six-speed manual transmission, the more powerful turbo 1.3-liter TCe four-cylinder with a 48V mild-hybrid system produces 138 horsepower. However, when paired with the EDC automatic transmission, it produces 158 horsepower. An electric 1.3-liter TCe producing 153 horsepower is also available in some areas. The most efficient choice is the E-Tech hybrid, which produces 143 horsepower.

Powering the front wheels is a multi-mode dog-clutch automatic gearbox that works in tandem with a 1.6-liter naturally-aspirated engine and two electric motors, as well as a 1.2 kWh battery. Over 41% of French Captur buyers choose the fully hybrid version, says Renault. All models of the 2024 Renault Captur are front-wheel drive.

Nevertheless, Renault has included an additional Extended Grip setting (Snow/AAll-Terrain) to complement the existing Multi-Sense driving modes (Eco, Sport, Comfort, and MySense), which may enhance traction in mild off-road scenarios. Renault has enhanced safety equipment with up to 28 advanced driver assistance systems, such as the context-aware Active Driver Assist and the optional Hybrid Predictive Driving. The European market for the 2024 Renault Captur will get the vehicle in April of that year.

The 2024 Renault Captur will be manufactured at Renault's Valladolid facility in Spain. In Europe, the French model faces competition from the likes of the newly updated Peugeot 2008, Ford Puma, Nissan Juke, Volkswagen T-Cross, and Skoda Kamiq. A mechanically comparable Symbioz, with a longer body and an even roomier cabin, will soon join the Renault Captur. This will enable it to rival the upcoming Citroen C3 Aircross and Opel Frontera siblings, all anticipated to feature a three-row layout. We will announce the pricing in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
