THE FACTS AND FIGURES
Wider, longer (just over four metres), lower and an average of 100kg lighter than the Mk3. There are four trim levels: Expression, Expression+, Dynamique MediaNav and Dynamique S MediaNav. The UK core model is expected to be Dynamique MediaNav. Expression+ and Dynamique MediaNav models can be specified as ECO versions, with better fuel consumption and emissions performance.
PRICES: Start at £10,595 for the 75bhp 1.2 litre petrol Expression (51.4mpg and 127g/km CO2). The diesel entry model is the 1461cc 90bhp, 162 lb ft Expression + with stop start ignition at £14,095. It records 83mpg and 90g/km.
COMING: Renault shows it has some styling wizardry in the Captur, a small “cross-over” five -door with attitude, kin to the Sunderland-built Nissan Juke. Prices for the Valladolid-built Captur start at £12,495 with deliveries in July.
MORE VROOM: Another concept will be shown at this month’s Monaco GP weekend and Renault returns to the Le Mans 24 Hour race next month with a a Nissan V8 powered Alpine.
