Renault has announced a number of specification and option updates to the highly popular Captur range. A new special edition version of the Captur, the Iconic Nav Special Edition, receives exclusive Arctic White pearlescent paint with Diamond Black two-tone body color with blue roof and door mirror decals as standard. Adding to the crossover style are painted lower front and rear bumpers, 17-inch ‘Explore’ alloy wheels with black inserts with a blue Renault diamond center cap.
Meanwhile inside, the new part-leather seat upholstery is highlighted with light blue stitching with this detail carried on to the leather steering wheel. A new light blue tinted chrome interior touch pack also helps to carry the exterior theme through to the inside of the special edition. Aluminium pedals as well as matt black detailing around the cabin help to boost the quality of the Renault Captur Iconic Nav special edition with the driver and front passenger also enjoying heated front seats for the cooler months.
The special edition also receives Renault’s Grip Xtend advanced traction control system. R-Link Evolution touchscreen infotainment and satellite navigation system with European mapping and reverse parking camera as well as an electrochrome rear view mirror add to the equipment level.
A new powertrain mating the 1.2-liter TCe 120 engine with a six-speed manual gearbox is now offered from Dynamique Nav level and above. The new engine/gearbox combination provides a combined fuel consumption from 5.5l/100km (51.4mpg) with CO2 emissions of 125 g/km. An alternative to the already-available TCe 120 with dual-clutch EDC gearbox, the TCe 120 engine with manual gearbox.
Elsewhere in the range, the corresponding Captur versions will now be able to specify the highly popular Flame Red metallic paint body color with a Diamond Black roof. Complementing this, a red interior touch pack will also become available on these versions providing red bursts around the cabin on the center console, speakers and air vents. Two-tone body color and red interior touch pack are also valid options.
On top of the Renault Captur Iconic Nav, the Captur range is available in four trim levels and with a range of two petrol and two diesel engines. Captur was the best-selling compact crossover in Europe in 2015 and, as of the end of May this year, had sold over 596,268 vehicles globally since launch in 2013.
