Renault lobs second-gen Captur from $28,190
New-generation Renault Captur small SUV brings a $6200 entry price hike
26 Feb 2021
RENAULT Australia has revealed the pricing and specification of its second-generation Captur small SUV with the range starting from $28,190 plus on-road costs for the entry-level Life.
Armed with an updated look, an all-new platform and more standard equipment than ever, the new Captur has risen significantly in price compared to its first-gen predecessor which used to start from $21,990 for the manual, or $25,990 for an automatic.
With first deliveries expected to commence in April, the new Captur is just the second model from the brand to be underpinned by the new Alliance-developed CMF-B platform which Renault says has resulted in an increase in space and practicality.
Compared to the old model, the new one offers a claimed 17mm more rear legroom as well as an extra 81 litres of cargo space (now 536L), no doubt thanks to the 110mm of extra body length (now 4227mm) and the sliding second row (160mm of adjustment).
Three variants will be offered Down Under, all powered by the same turbocharged 1.3-litre four-cylinder petrol engine good for 113kW/270Nm sent exclusively to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission – fuel consumption is pegged at 6.6 litres per 100km on the combined cycle while emitting 149g of CO2 per kilometre.
Opening up the range is the previously mentioned $28,190 Life which comes with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth connectivity, DAB+ digital radio, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, paddle shifters and power adjustable door mirrors.
Spending an extra $2600 and opting for the Zen ($30,790) meanwhile adds a heated leather steering wheel to the equation along with climate control, keyless entry, rain-sensing wipers and wireless phone charging.
At the top of the range, the $35,790 Intens brings a marked improvement in standard equipment, boasting a bigger 9.3-inch infotainment screen paired with a Bose premium sound system, power adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, electric park brake, LED cabin lighting, ‘flying’ centre console, auto-dimming rearview mirror, 360-degree camera, illuminated vanity mirrors, 7.0-inch digital driver display, three drive modes, satellite navigation, black leather upholstery, chrome exterior highlights, privacy glass and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Standard safety equipment on all models includes emergency brake assist, autonomous emergency braking, hill start assist, dusk-sensing lights, rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, tyre pressure monitoring, forward collision warning, traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning and lane-keep assist with other features including rear cross-traffic alert and blind spot monitoring offered on the higher-grade variants.
Renault says it is opening its order books for the new model from the beginning of March.
