Renault’s refreshed Captur gets a Scenic face graft

Published: 04 April 2024 Updated: 04 April 2024

► New Renault Captur revealed
► Scenic-like facelift, E-Tech hybrid
► Launches later in 2024

Renault has given its small Captur crossover a facelift for 2024, introducing some newer technology and a face that looks awfully like the larger Scenic.

That fresh look includes a revised front end, as well as some new wheel designs and colours. LEDs are standard across the range, and Renault says they have welcome animations now. Fresh wheel designs feature, and you can spec two-tone paint options as you could with the pre-facelift.

The interior has had a gentle refresh, too, including some new upholstery types made from recycled fabrics and a new Esprit Alpine (think BMW M Sport or Audi S line) trim. The infotainment has been upgraded to Renault’s Android-based Open-R system, which is the same one used in cars like the Megane E-Tech.

Two powertrains will be available – a 1.0-litre TCe 90 petrol engine and an E-Tech Hybrid model. The standard petrol has 89bhp and is paired with a six-speed manual, while the brand’s 1.6-litre E-Tech hybrid model (also seen on the Clio and Arkana) has 143bhp and claims up to 60.1mpg.

Renault says the updated Captur will go on sale in the autumn of 2024.
