These are complemented by exterior customisation packs in a choice of six colours: Ivory, Blue, Cappuccino, Red, Satin Chrome and Orange (hub caps and side sill protector).

Full-LED ‘Pure Vision’ front lights (depending on version) enhance both the vehicle’s look and safety, while reducing glare. At the bottom of the bumper, New Captur incorporates the C-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights.

Three types of wheel are available across the range: one 16-inch rim (Adventure) and two 17-inch wheels (Emotion and Explore).

The cabin is more refined, benefitting from high-quality plastics, chrome and new colours. The steering wheel is made from more upmarket materials and, on certain versions, comes trimmed with full-grain leather. The gear lever has a more modern appearance, while the door panels have been revised to incorporate buttons and controls. The LED ceiling light provides individual reading lights.

Three multimedia systems are fitted according to equipment level: R&GO, Media Nav and R-LINK. Even from its entry equipment level, the new Captur is completely connected thanks to the R&GO.

Renault R-LINK provides the New Captur with an advanced multimedia system. It comes with a 7-inch screen. It incorporates navigation with real-time traffic updates, 3G connectivity, Bluetooth, media playback (photos, videos) and a wide variety of applications via Renault’s R-LINK Store, as well as management of the vehicle’s driving aids.

For the first time, the Captur incorporates Blind Spot Warning, available on certain versions. Four sensors work together to detect the presence of moving vehicles in the door mirror blind spots, including motorbikes and bicycles.
