​The previous Captur was a huge sales success and Renault is seeing similar levels of popularity with the second-generation model. It shares much of its tech with the smaller Clio, which should help in providing customers with a dependable family car.

Renault claims that the Captur is one of the safest cars in its class, due to a raft of driver assistance systems. The comprehensive standard kit includes a tyre pressure warning light, an Active Emergency Braking System, Traffic Sign Recognition, cruise control with a speed limiter, Hill Start Assist, a distance warning alert, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist and E-Call: a system that allows the emergency services to be called automatically or manually in the event of an accident.

Industry safety experts, Euro NCAP, assessed the new Captur as providing the highest levels of safety and awarded it a five-star rating in 2019. Adult and child protection achieved excellent overall scores, with 96 per cent and 83 per cent, respectively, while pedestrian safety achieved a 74 per cent result.

The Mk2 Captur finished in a middling 34th position (out of 75 cars) in our 2023 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey, and Renault continues to sit at the bottom of our best car manufacturers table in 29th place (out of 32 brands).

Warranty

Every Renault Captur is covered by a three-year/60,000-mile warranty. The mileage allowance is actually unlimited during the first 24 months, then drops to a total of 60,000 miles or 3 years, whichever comes first.

Servicing

Renault’s EasyLife servicing plan allows customers to spread the cost of scheduled maintenance over monthly instalments. There's the option of a three-year/30,000 mile plan, or a four-year/60,000 mile package.​
