The second generation Renault Captur gets a facelift. The small SUV, still in head-to-head competition with the Peugeot 2008, welcomes the latest developments from the diamond brand with the ambition of perpetuating its commercial success.

[Updated April 4 at 11:20 a.m.] Scheduled for the end of last year, the reveal of the new Renault Captur took four more months. But Renault didn’t want to miss out, the diamond brand’s small crossover being one of the models that earn it the most. Sold in more than 47,000 copies in 2023, the second generation Captur, marketed since 2019, was in sixth place in bestsellers last year and second among SUVs, only ahead of its great rival (and only slightly) , the Peugeot 2008.

To remain at the top of the basket, Renault has decided to carry out a major overhaul of its Captur II, particularly marked on the front of the vehicle, which also retains its thermal and hybrid engines without giving in to the sirens of all-electric. Here’s everything you need to know about the restyled 2024 Renault Captur.

Unlike its best enemy, the Peugeot 2008, available 100% electric since its last update last year, the Renault Captur of 2024 will not offer a version exclusively powered by watts. The manufacturer wishes to maintain several alternatives for its customers after the recent releases of the Megane E-Tech and Scenic E-Tech. The small SUV will therefore always offer hybrid and thermal engines, including the 1.0 TCe 100 gasoline-LPG dual-fuel engine.

Three gasoline engines remain in the catalog, with a power of 90, 140 and 160 horsepower respectively, micro-hybrid for the last two. Finally, the 145-horsepower full-hybrid engine, with its 1.6-liter 92-horsepower gasoline engine associated with two electric motors of 36 kW (49 hp) and 15 kW (20 hp), still powers the most electrified version of the Captur. Note that several versions of the three-cylinder 1.2 turbo micro-hybrid 48 V called on the Renault Austral will gradually replace the current engines.

If its presentation was postponed from December to March, the opening of orders for the restyled SUV will directly follow its presentation since it is scheduled for April 9. The first deliveries to dealerships of the new version of the Captur, assembled in Spain near Valladolid, are expected just before summer, normally during the month of June.

Renault has not communicated on the prices of its new Captur but they will be known very soon with the opening of orders. In all likelihood, its floor price should not vary much, although a small increase is expected. Accessible from 25,800 euros before restyling, the small revamped crossover should have an entry price of between 26,000 and 27,00 euros. This is roughly the price of the Peugeot 2008 in its new 2023 version, the entry-level model of which sells at 26,400 euros.
