Renault unveils the new Captur in Frankfurt


French auto manufacturer Renault has unveiled the new Captur SUV at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The SUV has received a host of updates across exterior and interior.

The second-generation Renault Captur is based on the Renault Nissan Alliance's new modular architecture, claims the automaker.

Renault also said that this SUV answers future mobility challenges with technologies like Easy Connect, level 2 SAE driver assist systems and E-Tech plug-in hybrid powertrain.

The automaker says that it has sold more than 1.5 million units of the SUV so far in over 90 countries across the world. Renault claims that the Captur has been the best-seller in its category for seven years.


Commenting on the unveiling of the second-generation Renault Captur, Laurens Van Den Acker, EVP, Corporate Design, Groupe Renault, said, "With the all-new Captur, we took the very best and all-acclaimed features of Captur as a starting point. And then, we pushed them further."

He also said, "We revolutionized the interior, we transformed the body, and we made Captur even more customizable. At Renault, we make the quality of life on board an absolute priority. More quality, more technology, more SUV: the new Captur is 100% Captur and more."

The new generation Renault Captur will be the first in its category with plug-in hybrid technology onboard, informed Thierry Bollore, CEO Groupe Renault. He said, "From 2020 and on, new Captur will be the first in its category to be available with a plug-in hybrid. We developed a unique transmission system adapted to the hybrid requests, together with energy management technology directly derived from Formula 1."
