2018 Renault Captur gets facelift
Slotted above the value-oriented Duster, the Renault Captur received a facelift for 2018, which was revealed at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
The changes on the 2018 Renault Captur are not groundbreaking in any way, but with fancy additions such as optional full-LED headlights and a fixed glass roof, they’re not subtle either. The front grille has been reworked to look like the ones that come on the Captur’s bigger brothers, the Kadjar and the Koleos. The front and rear bumpers now house LED daytime running lamps along with reworked skid plates. The Captur will offer a few new paint choices, namely “Atacama Orange” and “Ocean Blue” and a new roof colour called “Platinum Gray”.
The personalisation options for the crossover is virtually endless with more than 30 different combinations for the exterior. The interior does not miss out as it comes with 6 different looks and colour options.
The engines on offer, though, haven’t been worked on. The 0.9 and 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol mills will continue to do duty under its hood. The 1.2-litre engine dishes out 112 hp while the puny 0.9-litre, which we don’t get, makes do with 90 hp. A 1.5-litre diesel is also on offer in the international markets which comes in 90 and 110 hp flavours.
Expect the new model to come to the UAE and GCC by the end of the year.
