Thanks to some touches at the front, the 2019 Renault Captur crossover features a more “important” look; Inside they improve the Interior of the plank and the connectivity. Always pleasant the 1.5 a diesel 110 CV.
Four years have passed since the 2019 Renault Captur (the best-selling compact crossover in Europe) has been launched; Now, simple and targeted tweaks enhance the visual impact, making it look more important. The full LED headlamps (standard for the set-up at the top of the range) and, above all, the daytime running lights in the shape of “C” on the sides of the front bumper, make it more modern and recognizable. New also the panoramic glass roof (standard on the version of Launch edition one), which floods the cockpit with light, and the LED lights. With the restyling (presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March), there are also four new colors for the body (orange Atacama, Blue Oil, and black amethyst, plus a new tint for the roof, the platinum grey) and five for the interiors. Also, the range of the alloy rims widens, with the new elements of 17 “diamond black or grey emotion, and with the grey hue for the Explore Diamantes.
2019 Renault Captur Redesign
Inside, the 2019 Renault Captur sports a new coating for the upper part of the plank: soft to the touch, makes the cockpit more pleasant (the quality of the materials was one of the defects of the pre-restyling model). On the original version Initiale Paris, The upholstery is even leather, like the upper area of the door panels, in conjunction with Nappa leather seats (standard). A change is also the multimedia system, which, in addition to the new versions of the R&Go and the media nav Evolution, offers the R-Link evolution with the touch screen of 7 “, now compatible with Android smartphones via the Android car app. Novelty also on the plan of electronic guidance aid systems, which are enriched by the blind angle sensor and the semiautomatic parking device Easy Park assist. It does not change, however, the envelope of airbags, with the two front sides that protect the head and chest of those who stand in front; For those who sit on the couch, no life-saving pillow. Nothing new in the commands on the central tunnel, where the awkward button of the cruise control remains: not really in the eye, at the beginning you have to look for it, distracting your gaze from the road. Large and well-exploitable the trunk; Practical the sliding sofa, standard for all versions.
2019 Renault Captur Engine Specs
Our test of the 2019 Renault Captur 1.5 DCI took place along the busy streets of Copenhagen and its surroundings.

In the guide on the winding roads of the country, you appreciate the good work of the suspensions at a quiet pace, while if you push a little more begins to manifest a moderate roll, which however does not bother and does not affect the good road seal.
