Renault Captur takes on most capable engine in its class

 2015 Renault_Captur Pure The Renault Captur, the best-selling variant in its segment in Europe, is now incorporated with the most powerful version of the 1.5 dCi engine. This 110hp Euro6 powerplant is already available for Renaults from higher segments. Compared with the dCi 90, this new engine brings the Renault Captur a power boost of 20hp, along with an extra 40Nm of torque. At the same time, Renault introduces the limited edition Captur Pure; only 1,000 units will be made available.

Mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, the Captur dCi110 reaches 100 km/h from standstill two seconds faster and boasts even more responsive mid-range acceleration than the acclaimed dCi90. Yet it also stands out through its fuel efficiency, since its homologated combined-cycle fuel consumption stands at just 3.7 liters/100km, equivalent to CO2 emissions of 98g/km.

Renault Captur Pure, limited to only 1,000 units

The Renault Captur Pure is presented in its chic and extensively-equipped package. Exterior styling enhancements of the Captur Pure are bespoke roof decals and specific door mirror housings. The compact SUV Crossover is available in Cassiopée Grey with an Etoilé Black roof, while ‘Pure’ badging is visible on the wings.

For the first time, the cabin of the numbered limited-edition version features leather upholstery (dark charcoal and smoke grey), along with numbered Pure door-sill badging and carpet mats.

The numbered limited edition Captur Pure is based on the range’s Intens equipment level, complete with the following items: Techno Pack (R-Link + reversing camera), leather upholstery with heated front seats and door sill guards.

Standard safety equipment for the Captur Pure consists of standard ABS, EBD, Emergency Brake Assist, Hill Start Assist and ESC. For body hue, the Renault Captur Pure takes on a special Metallic paint that resembles the Terminator’s T-1000 metallic cyborg form.

The numbered limited-edition Renault Captur Pure is valid with either the dCi 90 engine, the TCe 120 (both with EDC transmission) or, for the first time in the Captur range, the Energy dCi 110 Euro6. Prices vary from 21,600 to 24,300 Euros (France only) and sales of the new Captur range is expected to start from 13 February. The limited-edition Captur runs from 23,800 to 25,300 Euros, with spare wheel option at a cost of 120 euros.
