The Renault Captur is just renewed with the intention to hold the stake arrival of new new SUV. The improvement goes beyond a simple redesign.
When he presented the first Renault Captur, 4 years ago, which most was his striking design and tuning of suspension too firm it away a little standard that is supposed to this type of SUV in comfort and filtering capacity. The new Captur who just started his business career has surprised us for good by have improved the weaknesses which they were criticized at the time.
From the first look inside you can see a improvement in some materials as garrisoned soft feeling, and once started earlier excessive hardness he has become a superior comfort suspension filtered significantly any irregularity. Renault have not put too much emphasis to announce all the improvements that are hidden in this update, but it is fair to say that the ride quality has undergone a major improvement and propellant combination tetracilíndrico 1.2 liter gasoline with automatic EDC and 6-speed double clutch They present a refinement and good performance worthy of praise.
Without underestimating the expertise of three-cylinder engines that are so fashionable, the truth is that none reaches the degree of smoothness and fineness of a good four cylinder Renault like this. And the Captur gives a good account of it.
In performance tests we have done the new Renault Captur only has slightly worsened its braking distance, fruit of a less firm suspensions, but as we have previously counting has a better balance than the first model. He operation of the automatic transmission is clearly oriented softness and good control maneuvers with greater slippage usual gear changes both as at the start. Maybe they could improve this, but the problem offered by other changes dual-clutch similar structure as the Volkswagen Group 7 gears (known DSG) is that if you become “too” fast you can not control correctly maneuvers parking and ripped can become something sharp. It seems more reasonable development of Renault in this section and focused client and the type of use that is supposed to Captur.
Actual consumption: Renault Captur 1.2 TCe 120 EDC
Something that is important to clarify in this type of car is their actual consumption, and it is usually in the SUV with gasoline consumption is very variable depending on the type of driving to practice. In our usual tour highway, the data obtained by the new Renault Captur 1.2 TCe 120 hp EDC It is reduced (6,3 l / 100 km on average), and has merit considering how dynamic displayed at all times.
Already in urban use, It employs the same Captur 7.3 l / 100 km on average According to our data, it is encouraging figure but easily exceed 8 liters if we do not practice efficient driving. As you can see, the average consumption of our tours -6.7 l / 100 km in mixto- use exceeds 5.6 data announced by Renault, as usual, but is within normal limits and is not for nothing alarming said difference. Very soon we will offer the complete test.
