Renault has introduced a new top trim level to its popular Captur compact-crossover Captur Signature.
Order books have now opened for this high specification model builds on the Dynamique S MediaNav version and adds numerous extras, including some exclusive ones, as standard.
The uprated model features 17-inch alloy wheels with black inserts and chrome exterior details on the side strips, boot lid, front grille and fog lights to set the Signature trim level apart. A two-tone exterior finish is standard whilst a distinctive optional Flame Red metallic paint is available. A choice of three other metallic and two solid colours is also available.
Inside, Captur Signature receives upgrades in the form of part-leather upholstery, Signature door sill plates and mats and the Red Touch Pack adding bright red detail to the centre console, speakers and air vents.
In terms of technology, the Captur Signature represents a step up from the Dynamique S MediaNav trim. The R-Link infotainment system includes a 7-inch touchscreen, satellite navigation (with EU mapping and TomTom LIVE traffic services), USB connectivity and an uprated radio with 3D sound.
A rear parking camera combines with the rear parking sensors to make parking effortless. The Grip Xtend advanced traction control system provides maximum grip on the road in difficult driving conditions through the use of a simple thumbwheel on the centre console.
Captur Signature retains the comprehensive specification from the rest of the range with equipment such as electric folding door mirrors, automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, tinted rear windows and tailgate, Bluetooth connectivity and LED daytime running lights.
Captur Signature is available with a choice of two petrol and diesel engines. The petrol line-up consists of a 0.9-litre TCe 90, mated to a five-speed manual transmission, and a 1.2-litre TCe 120, which comes with a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic gearbox. In terms of diesel, the 1.5-litre dCi 90 is available as both a manual and an automatic. On the ENERGY dCi 90 version, emissions are as low as 95g/km whilst fuel economy on the official combined cycle is 78.5mpg meaning low running costs and free Road Fund Licence.
