Renault Captur updated with new RS Line and SE Limited versions
Renault has enhanced the Captur range with a new motorsport-inspired RS Line trim and a value-focused SE Limited version as part of a range of updates.
Available for the first time on the Captur, the RS Line and SE Limited specifications join the existing Play, Iconic and S Edition models and are powered by a range of TCe petrol and E-Tech plug-in hybrid powertrains.
Similar to the Clio and Mégane versions, the new Captur RS Line trim brings a range of styling updates, including a more sporty front bumper and grille, and 18-inch alloy wheels. The interior brings detailing drawing on Renault Sport’s heritage and including R.S. Line-specific upholstery, aluminium pedals and a carbon finish on the dashboard and black interior roof lining.
Equipment includes the latest 9.3-inch Easy Link infotainment display, which brings Bluetooth, DAB and USB connectivity, plus Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality. The RS Line model also incorporates the standard equipment from Captur S Edition, including hands-free keycard with keyless entry and start, front and rear parking sensors with reversing camera, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, automatic air con, automatic lights and wipers, sliding rear bench, modular boot floor and Multi-Sense driving modes with eight ambient lighting colours.
Driver assistance features bring Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, Active Emergency Braking System and Traffic Sign Recognition.
The Captur SE Limited has been introduced bridging the gap between Play and Iconic trims, with an enhanced level of specification featuring bespoke exterior design elements, augmented by the latest connectivity technology.
Exterior features include two-tone paint with a contrasting black roof as standard, 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and privacy glass, while the interior gets bespoke badging and grey cloth upholstery.
Equipment for SE Limited models includes the 7.0-inch Easy Link touchscreen infotainment system, providing navigation, live traffic information and Google search capability on top of the usual DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.
The Captur SE Limited is also fitted with Traffic Sign Recognition with overspeed prevention. This is added to the Captur’s existing safety equipment including automatic full LED headlights, rear parking sensors, Automatic Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, climate control, cruise control with speed limiter and handsfree key card.
Renault has also updated equipment across the rest of the Captur line-up. Entry-level Play specification now features rear parking sensors as standard, while Iconic models get automatic high and low beam and C-shaped LED lighting signature with 3D-effect rear lights at no extra cost, delivering greater value and an even sharper look. Additionally, S Edition is now equipped as standard with 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.
The RS Line gets a choice of powertrains, including the E-Tech plug-in hybrid with CO2 emissions from 34g/km, and TCe 90 and TCe 140 petrols, the latter with 12V mild hybrid tech and a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed EDC automatic transmissions. The TCe 90 uses a six-speed manual transmission.
Captur SE Limited customers can choose between the TCe 90 fitted with a manual transmission or TCe 140 with EDC automatic transmission.
The new Captur RS Line and SE Limited models are available to order now, priced from £23,800 and £20,300 respectively. Deliveries start now for the SE Limited and in August for the RS Line.
