The Renault Captur is a stylish SUV that is practical and has reasonable running costs. We have made a set of car mats for this brand new model which has been launched as a direct rival to the Vauxhall Mokka and the Nissan Juke.
Based on the latest Clio, the Renault Captur has big car looks but is relatively cheap to run. The driving position is high which gives excellent visibility when riding around town. There is no four wheel drive option but it is comfortable and easy to manoeuvre and to park. However, driving on the motorway is another matter and the SUV is quite noisy and underpowered.
The model struggles to keep up with the traffic flow unless you keep your foot constantly to the accelerator pedal. There are two specifications; the Expression and the Dynamique. Although accomplished enough around town, the Captur is not good for long journeys. It drives in a similar fashion to the Clio and there is a choice to two petrol engines and one diesel. The 1.5 litre dCi diesel gives the best balance between economy and performance. Pedals and steering are light making it simple to zip around narrow town streets using the manual transmission which is very smooth. The suspension is cushioned which creates comfort but not much fun.
The Renault Captur is longer than the Clio and has a more robust frame and bodywork. This makes it a better ride than the Clio on which it was based. The soft suspension absorbs bumps in the road but if you opt for 17 inch wheels you will find it a bumpier ride. The diesel option is smooth although a bit noisy when reaching motorways speeds. In the front, the seats are soft and comfortable while in the rear, the seats slide back and forth giving more flexibility for longer legged passengers. You can choose more legroom or more space in the boot. The high spec Dynamique also has seat covers that are removable for cleaning.
As the Captur is based on the Clio it has an engine and other parts that have already proved to be reliable. Renault has made great efforts to raise the company’s reliability factor in surveys and is slowly climbing up the charts. The well constructed interior of the SUV is made from good quality materials which should prove to be robust enough for any family. In safety terms the Captur has anti lock brakes and electronic stability control as well as the usual air bags. The car scored 5 stars in tests.
You can buy car mats for the Captur from My Car Mats, and they are available in Standard Black or Grey, Premium Grey, Beige, Navy or Blue and Ultimate Black, Graphite, Grey or Beige. You can choose from a wide range of colour trims. Our rubber mats are available in three grades and these are Standard, Luxury and Heavy Duty. A set of mats will not only provide protection for the floor of the car but will add style and comfort to all your journeys.
Also, when you come to trade in or sell your Renault, original or at least tailor mate interior fixings will only help the car hold its value!
