Renault’s new S Edition captured


21 May 2019

RENAULT is to add a new version of its Captur to the line-up to widen the choice for its increasing number of buyers.

The company says it is a style-focused version of the Captur that is a rival for Nissan’s Juke and a host of other small SUVs. Sitting above Captur Play and Iconic, and below the Captur GT-Line, the S Edition model gets new interior finishes and technology with a choice of three engines.

A highlight of the interior is Alcantara upholstery, with seats trimmed with red stitching, plus the steering wheel, handbrake and gear lever finished in leather.

Each of the roof support pillars is black and the roof lining is dark-coloured to accentuate the red colouring inside. The edging of the seven-inch colour touchscreen is also styled in red, with further interior styling elements including aluminium pedals.

Standard equipment includes satellite navigation, DAB radio, rear parking sensors, and automatic headlights and windscreen wipers.

Outside, the lower door accents are coloured in gun metal grey, as are the front and rear skidplates. There are also 17-inch Filante alloy wheels that are exclusive to the model.

The newcomer is available in a choice of half a dozen bodywork colours with an optional, no-cost choice of a black roof and black door mirrors.

Alternatively the roof and door mirrors can be painted in ivory or mercury at extra cost.

The three engines include a dCi 90 diesel with either a five-speed manual or automatic gearbox, creating economy of 50mpg, with a CO2 rating of 110g/km.

Petrol engines begin with the TCe 130, which is available with a six-speed manual gearbox and has economy of 43mpg and a CO2 figure of 128g/km.

Completing the line-up is the TCe 150 petrol engine, that comes only with a six-speed automatic gearbox. Economy is 43mpg and the CO2 figure is 125g/km.

Prices range from £19,785 to £21,565.
