Sig­na­ture trim to Cap­tur at­ten­tion

Egham News - - MOTORS -

RE­NAULT has in­tro­duced a new topof-the-range trim level to its popular Cap­tur com­pact-crossover – Cap­tur Sig­na­ture.

This high spec­i­fi­ca­tion model builds on the Dy­namique S Me­dia Nav ver­sion and adds nu­mer­ous ex­tras, in­clud­ing some ex­clu­sive ones, as stan­dard. Or­der books have now opened with prices for Cap­tur Sig­na­ture start­ing from £17,495.

On the ex­te­rior, 17-inch Ex­plore al­loy wheels with black in­serts and chrome ex­te­rior de­tails on the side strips, boot lid, front grille and fog lights set the Sig­na­ture trim level apart. A two-tone ex­te­rior fin­ish is stan­dard while a dis­tinc­tive op­tional Flame Red metal­lic paint is avail­able. A choice of three other metal­lic and wo solid colours is also avail­able.

On the in­te­rior, Cap­tur Sig­na­ture re­ceives up­grades in the form of partleather up­hol­stery, Sig­na­ture door sill plates and mats and the Red TTTouch 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 seven-inch touch­screen, satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion (with EU map­ping and TomTom LIVE traf­fic ser­vices), USB con­nec­tiv­ity and an up­rated 4x35W Arkamys 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 Cap­tur 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 fivespeed 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 while fuel econ­omy on the of­fi­cial com­bined cy­cle is 78.5mpg – mean­ing low run­ning costs and free road fund li­cence.

Ev­ery new Cap­tur is cov­ered by a four year/100,000-mile war­ranty, as well as four years’ road­side as­sis­tance. Four years’/48,000-mile free ser­vic­ing is avail­able to cus­tomers pur­chas­ing their new ve­hi­cle on a Re­nault Selections PCP Fi­nance pack­age. Ser­vic­ing is re­quired ev­ery year/18,000 miles.

The Re­nault Cap­tur range, which is priced from £14,195, has proved popular with UK mo­torists since its launch in May 2013 with more than 21,000 of the com­pact-crossovers find­ing new homes – more than 15,000 of th­ese have been sold so far in 2014, mak­ing it Re­nault’s sec­ond best-sell­ing model in the UK.
