Renault celebrated the launch of the newest addition to its family, the new Captur with an intimate dinner held in Williamstown. The brand known for its dynamic nature didn’t disappoint, giving guests not only a first hand look at the new Captur, but allowing them to ride in the new car in a specially created obstacle course, designed to show off the Captur’s high performance features.
While the Renault Captur offers the world class engineering detailing which makes it one of the most popular cars in the world today, the Captur stands out from other peers in its size range with its extensive personalisation program. While most cars just let you chose the colour of the body, the Captur offers the options of two-tone bodywork, wheel colours and customisable interior trims.
While the Renault Captur has a clear design focus, this does not mean it compromises on any usability. It offers a generous interior space while remaining compact. It has a sliding rear bench seat providing the ideal balance of space for passengers and their luggage. The passenger compartment can have removable seat covers which can be unzipped, machine washed at home and refitted, perfect if you have kids or for those unexpected spills.
For those of you who struggle with spacial awareness and parking, you’ll be pleased to know the Renault Captur comes with a high-definition reversing camera and rear parking sensors. It also offers satellite navigation, automatic windscreen wipers, automatic headlights and Renault’s smart card for hands-free entry and exit.
While the top of the line Renault engines will ensure you won’t lose any driving performance, the fuel efficiency will mean can enjoy the freedom to drive further and have more money leftover for shoes!
As an added bonus, up to 16% of the plastics used in Captur’s production are sourced from recycling, showing Renault’s dedication to minimising its environmental impact.
Commenting on the launch of the new Renault Captur Justin Hocevar, Managing Director Renault Australia, said “It is with great excitement that we now launch the Renault Captur to the Australian market. The Captur has been a runaway success story globally, selling more than 196,000 vehicles worldwide in 2014 and was the third highest selling vehicle in France. The Captur is an exceptionally versatile vehicle which can take customers from the urban jungle to a country drive with effortless ease. Thanks to the incredibly clever packaging of the interior space and the sliding rear bench seat, Captur is readily able to accommodate all aspects of our modern and busy lifestyles.”
“We are confident that it will follow in the footsteps of its highly successful cousin, the Renault Clio. Captur is set to become a core model in the Renault Australia passenger car range and I’m certain that Captur will bring more new customers to the Renault family than ever before,” said Hocevar.
Starting from an RRP of just $22,990, the all-new Captur offers a 5 year/unlimited kilometre warranty and 5 years’ roadside assist. All vehicles in the Captur range have 1 year servicing intervals or 15,000km (whichever comes first) and are covered by Renault’s Capped Price servicing program. The first three services are capped at just $299 per service.
