It’s a Clio on a stilts, with the Nissan Juke in its sights.

60sec road test
The Captur’s overtly jazzy colour schemes, many of which paint the roof from a different pot to the body, might not be to everyone’s taste but as a car it’s entirely agreeable. This is classic crossover fodder: a relatively high, upright driving position but the driving manners of an ordinary hatchback. The Captur’s obvious Clio roots mean a relatively compact boot but the rear seat bench can be slid forwards to free up a bit more space. An aggressive pricing strategy and thrifty running costs make this a lifestyle statement car that’ll slot into most lifestyles quite neatly.
