One of the main additions to the line-up is a new R.S. Line trim level, which gets sportier design cues inspired by the firm’s motorsport range. It’s a grade already found on the Clio and Megane, and brings changes such as a ‘Formula One-style’ front blade, a striking honeycomb grille and 3D rear lights. It also features 18-inch alloy wheels, a grey rear diffuser, double chrome tailpipe trim and a two-tone body colour.
Inside, it comes with red stitching and stripes on the seats, a perforated leather steering wheel and dedicated aluminium door strips. Given this trim sits at the top of the range, standard equipment is also generous and includes keyless entry and start, multi-sense driving modes and an 9.3-inch touchscreen. R.S. Line models are available from £23,800, or £269 per month with zero per cent APR finance.
The second trim addition to the Captur range is the SE Limited, which sits between entry-level Play and Iconic versions. Highlights include two-tone paint with a black roof as standard, along with 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and ‘LIMITED’ badging.
On top of the Play trim level, they also feature a seven-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation with smartphone mirroring, rear parking sensors and keyless entry. Limited models start from £20,300, or £229 per month with the same zero per cent APR finance.
Renault has updated the engine range, too, with a new 89bhp TCe petrol engine kicking off the line-up, and being joined by a new mild-hybrid 139bhp TCe 140 option, which gets the choice of a six-speed manual or seven-speed EDC automatic transmission. The E-Tech plug-in hybrid remains available, too, which is capable of a 31-mile electric range.
Both cars are available to order now, with first deliveries expected imminently for the SE Limited and from August for the R.S. Line.
