2018 Renault Captur Review: Specs, Price, Release Date
Renault made a big success after having their previous Renault Captur. They showed their capability so that the vehicle was known as the most popular urban crossover in 2016 from European manufacturer. At that time, the company was able to sell about 215,670 units. What they did was offering a more distinctive styling and completing it with latest technologies. What people loved from the previous model was because it did not lose its user-friendliness. In their history, they have a comprehensive lineup of crossover starting from the Capture Initialed Paris, Kadjar, and Koleos. Now, they are ready to make the new 2018 Renault Captur for a big hit.
2018 Renault Captur will come out with a striking design with the help of two-tone color scheme and the three new body colors, which are Acatama Orange, Amethyste Black, and Ocean blue. They also offer a new Platine Grey as the option for the roof. Even they are able to make 30 possible combinations so that buyers can style their own vehicle. It seems that the company does not want to make a drastic change. The original success is adorable, and therefore no one wants to move too far from that look. The difference is that, the new model will get the Full LED technology to enhance its vision and safety. This technology also helps reduce glare. The bumper comes with C-shaped LED daytime running lights as its signature. At the rear, it has iconic lighting for the night and day.
Speaking of the radiator grille, Renault is going to modify it to make it a little bit similar to the Kadjar. However, they also add a chrome strip to make it different. The front and rear bumper come with new skid plates. Renault also provides four types of wheels, a fixed glass sunroof, and two-tone configuration.
Inside, the new 2018 Renault Captur has brighter cabin than before, thanks to the fixed glass roof. The cabin also has six interior customization options as well as five customization packs you can choose.
