New 2024 Renault Captur: Price, specs and release date

Written By Richard Aucock

2024 Renault Captur

The new Renault Captur is a facelifted version of the popular small SUV that's now available to order.

Following the updated Renault Clio, the new Renault Captur provides a renewed challenge to the UK’s best-selling car, the Ford Puma.

A best-seller across Europe for the past decade, the new Renault Captur follows up the extensively-revised Renault Clio as the French firm overhauls its model range.

The new Renault Captur has an updated front end style, cutting-edge interior tech and an efficient range of petrol and hybrid engines. There’s also a new range-topping trim called Esprit Alpine, inspired by the sporty Alpine brand.

The new Renault Captur is available to order now, challenging the Volkswagen T-Cross, Vauxhall Mokka, Nissan Juke, Peugeot 2008, Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-30, Toyota Yaris Cross, Skoda Kamiq and others. The first cars will be delivered to customers in Q3.

The new Renault Captur is on sale now with the first deliveries later in the year.

Prices start at £21,095 for the entry-level Evolution TCe 90 model, and rise up to £27,995 for the top-of-the-range Esprit Alpine E-Tech hybrid model.

The pricing makes the starting point of the Captur some £4500 cheaper than the entry-level Ford Puma, which begins at £25,650 for the 1.0-litre Titanium model.

New 2024 Renault Captur: exterior and interior

The new Renault Captur adopts the cleaner and more modern front-end look first seen in the latest Renault Megane E-Tech and Renault Scenic E-Tech. The upper and lower parts of the grille are angled, to catch the light, and there are tiny parallelograms either side of the new Renault logo. 

The new Renault Captur has front and rear LED lights as standard, and there are new diamond-shaped vertical LED daytime running lights stacked either side of the more muscular-looking front bumper. Meanwhile the bonnet is higher and flatter, to give it a more robust appearance.

The new Renault Captur is available in six body colours. Ceramic Grey is new, and there’s also Arctic White, Oyster Grey, Diamond Black, Iron Blue and Flame Red. A two-tone colourscheme is optional on Techno and Esprit Alpine models, which blends in a Diamond Black roof and door mirrors.

The new Renault Captur Esprit Alpine stands out even more, thanks to its Ice Black logos, high-gloss black window surrounds, aerodynamic splitter, front and rear skid plates and its big 19-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the new Renault Captur has gone leather-free. The eco treatment uses grained cover materials, and many of the upholstery trims contain recycled materials. The new Renault Captur also doesn’t use any chrome, as this isn’t eco-friendly either.

The centrepiece of the new Renault Captur is its 10.4-inch vertical touchscreen, which uses a multimedia system called OpenR Link, which has Google built-in. It is the first small SUV to use this system (and it is standard on all but base models).

The setup means the new Renault Captur offers Google services such as Google Maps, Google Assistant and more than 50 other apps available through the Google Play store. These include Waze, Amazon Music and the Vivaldi web browser. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard too.

The new Renault Captur also has a digital instrument panel, that measures up to 10.25 inches, and can show Google Maps in front of the driver to make following directions even easier.

The sporty new Renault Captur Esprit Alpine, meanwhile, has a blue-grey insert on the dashboard, multi-textured grained fabric on the seats and door panels, the French national flag in the seat side piping, plus a bespoke steering wheel, sports pedals and seatbelts with blue stitching.

The new Renault Captur remains a very roomy small SUV. It has a roomy 422-litre boot with the rear seat slid right back – and it also slides 160mm forwards, increasing boot space to a mammoth 536 litres. Rear knee room is among the best on the market, adds Renault.

The new Renault Captur has a sporty look, and offers a choice of two different engines.

New 2024 Renault Captur: engines and gearboxes

The new Renault Captur offers a choice of two engines. The regular three-cylinder turbo petrol engine is called TCe 90. There is also a ‘self-charging’ hybrid, called E-Tech full hybrid 145.

The 1.0-litre TCe 90 engine produces, as its name suggests, 90PS. It accelerates from 0-62mph in 14.3 seconds, and uses a standard six-speed manual gearbox. It will average around 48mpg according to official figures, with CO2 emissions from 134g/km.

The new Renault Captur E-Tech full hybrid is a 1.6-litre, 145PS four-cylinder engine. It has a standard automatic gearbox. The 0-62mph performance is quicker at 10.6 seconds, yet it can still average 60.1mpg. CO2 emissions start from just 105g/km.

The new Renault Captur E-Tech full hybrid will automatically switch to pure electric motoring wherever possible. This will be particularly noticeable in town, where overall refinement levels will be improved, thanks to the silent-running you get with an EV.

The new Renault Captur has overhauled suspension and new dampers, which will give an improved ride as well as a more responsive feel through corners. The steering has also been recalibrated so it’s more fun to drive.

The new Renault Captur Esprit Alpine has an even sportier feel thanks to 19-inch wheels with grippy Michelin tyres, available for the first time on a Captur.

Find a used Renault Captur for sale

Because it is so popular, a used Renault Captur is a compelling secondhand buy. There's plenty of choice on the heycar marketplace, with five-year-old models easily available for under £10,000. Look out for the latest generation model, introduced in 2020, which can be found for under £12,000. We like the TCe petrol engines but dCi diesels are a good way to cut your fuel bills, thanks to their excellent economy. 

Looking for more new car news?

If you're after a bargain electric SUV, you're in luck. We have news here at heycar on how the new Vauxhall Mokka Electric is more than £7k cheaper, and how £5k has been cut from the Honda e:Ny1. In other news, the new Ford Puma is a refreshed version of Ford’s best-selling new car that arrives in time for spring 2024. Meanwhile, the Volkswagen ID.7 has recently become better value with the launch of a new Volkswagen ID.7 Match variant. The new Audi Q7 has also been revealed ahead of its UK launch later this year. We have news on the exciting new Polestar 4 as well, which follows hot on the heels of the new Porsche Macan. We have also revealed everything you need to know about two more retro recreations, the new 2024 Renault 5 and 2025 Renault 4.

The new Renault Captur has a sliding rear seat, that helps the boot grow from an already-commodious 484 litres to a class-leading 616 litres. That space is lower in the hybrid, though, which has 348 litres in the boot, or 480 with the seats slid forward. Fold down the back seats and you'll get up to 1275 litres of capacity to carry larger items. There is also nearly 25 litres of in-cabin storage.

The new Renault Captur does not offer a fully-electric version. Instead, it has a choice of regular turbo petrol or ‘self-charging’ hybrid engines. A reborn new Renault 4 is set to offer all-electric small SUV practicality from 2025.

The new Renault Captur will become the UK’s first small SUV to offer an Android Automotive-based infotainment system with Google built-in. It also has up to 18 drivers assist systems.
