New special edition Renault Captur Rive Gauche trim launched

Available to order now, the new range topping Renault Captur Rive Gauche trim comes with glossy black styling and upgraded tech

A new special Renault Captur Rive Gauche edition has been revealed. The trim is exclusive to the Captur range and is available to order now from £24,490, although only 800 will be produced for the UK.

Inspired by the River Seine southbank in Paris, Rive Gauche translates as “left bank”, and key features of the range-topping model include black gloss accents throughout the exterior. The grille, front and rear skid plates and Captur badging all have a black gloss finish and 18-inch diamond cut wheels add to the new look.

The roof and wing mirrors come in black to contrast with metallic paint options in a choice of oyster grey, arctic white, diamond black or flame red. C-shaped LED headlights remain but with automatic high beam, standard from the Iconic Edition trim.

The black gloss theme continues inside with a dark roof lining and black synthetic leather and cloth seats. The Rive Gauche gets wireless phone charging and a 9.3-inch portrait Easy Link touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, accompanied by a digital driving display instead of an analogue gauge cluster. 

Engine options include the TCe 90 petrol three-cylinder, and an electrified E-Tech Hybrid 145. The hybrid has a 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine and does 0-62mph in 10.6 seconds. As expected, the hybrid outperforms the petrol from an efficiency standpoint with a combined fuel economy of 57.7 WLTP compared with 47.1mpg. 

This special edition includes all the tech found from the SE Line up, such as automatic air conditioning, an electronic parking brake with auto-hold and front and rear parking sensors with a rear view camera. Safety and driver assist systems featured on the Rive Gauche are Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Active Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Traffic Sign Recognition and there’s also a speed limiter and cruise control.
