In fact, virtually have replaced small minivans, less numerous or, in some cases, reinvented under aesthetic SUV.

Renault Captur, Opel Crossland X and CX-3Newcomer Opel Crossland X adds to this market trend and does so by providing arguments. In this comparison we face the leader of the segment, Renault Captur, and an aspirational CX-3 putting the note "premium" the comparative. We chose their petrol engines between 110 and 120 hp, but each with a different configuration.

Meanwhile he CX-3 chooses engine four cylinders atmospheric with a fairly high displacement to what we are used to seeing lately -2.0 liters, rivals resort to two separate propellants 1.2 liters turbocharged, with three cylinders in the case of Opel Crossland X, and four in the Renault Captur. Each maintains a style for response and refinement, but stresses the Mazda above the other two, not only for pleasure to use, but also for the actual fuel consumption obtained in the test, which was lower despite be the model that accredits more consumption of three on the official sheet. The no turbo makes your answer is very dispensable and linear, but it is still strong if demand performance, thanks to a torque that except for a few laps, comes close to its supercharged rivals, combined with some developments of change a little shorter. Neither him Crossland X nor the Captur They respond so immediacy and softness to throttle commands and, sometimes, their response is less dispensable and requires corrections to the accelerator pedal. As a point in their favor, both provide a greater amount of torque that allows them to move with good ease in gear or when the car is loaded, although in the case of Opel, changing only 5-speed hurts him in some of our measurements.

As for behavior, 4x2 configuration these versions does not allow much fanfare outside the asphalt. Despite its aesthetic, high altitude and defenses in the underbody (more aesthetic than functional) are not field cars. his ground clearance, yes, gives some reassurance to park on uneven areas (the roadside, for example), jump on the curb or overcome speed bumps, and when travel on roads in poor condition. All three offer a similar degree of comfort, with a remarkable quality of bacheo and good filtering irregularities by a moron relatively soft cushions.

He CX-3, meanwhile, it is longer and lower than its opponents, which gives it a more dynamic and sporty image, but detracts luggage capacity and makes it the least familiar of the three. His mouth load is also smaller and is at a higher ground level, so loading and unloading of bulky or heavy objects may be more fatiguing. In terms of practicality is the Opel who achieves better results, although the Captur, with its rear row of seats longitudinally sliding, also it provides great versatility, despite being the one with a shorter body. Width is the Crossland X the one that stands out, especially in the rear seats, which will facilitate the work in case you have to put two child seats more comfortable way.
