The Renault Captur is the upcoming compact SUV based on the Renault Clio, which is due to be released on January 11, 2013. Full details are still unreleased, but we know that it will come with diesel and gasoline engines that produce 90 to 120 horsepower.
Renault showed up to the 2011 Geneva Motor Show with the cool Captur — a concept car with a very futuristic design language first seen on the DeZir Concept . Nothing much was said about this concept’s production, much like every other concept, but today Renault announced that the production version Captur will be unveiled in March at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The production version takes both the spirit and the name of the concept and combines them with elements from the new generation Clio hatchback.
The new Captur will be built on the same platform as the new Clio, but it will feature "a high-up driving position, large boot, modular interior and innovative stowage solutions." Under the hood the model will be offered with the same engine line-up as the new Clio, so customers will have to choose between both petrol and diesel engines.
After the Captur, Renault will be unveiling a larger SUV based on the Nissan Quashqai .
