The Renault Captur dominated the compact crossover segment in 2017, finishing the year in the number one position with 29.8% share.

The Captur’s performance drove the segment’s growth to almost 5% of the market in 2017.

The Renault Captur has gotten off to a strong start in 2018 also, retaining its number one position in January.

The Renault Captur has been something of an Irish success story with over 7,000 sold here since launch in 2013.

The Captur range starts at just €20,290, with alloys and air conditioning included as standard. A refreshed model arrived at the end of 2017 with new C-shaped LED lighting signature front and rear, new alloy wheel designs and new colours.

The interior has also been re-designed with new materials and new upholstery.

There’s a new Signature S Nav trim now at the top of the range.

According to Renault, the most popular Captur is the Signature X Nav, priced from €24,890. Equipment includes leather seats, navigation, full LED headlights and parking assistance with an integrated rear-view camera.

Customers who choose metallic paint can add a contrasting colour on the roof at no additional cost.

Patrick Magee, Country Operations Director, Renault Ireland said, “Captur continues to be one of our best-selling models as we move further into 2018, finishing number one in its class in January once again. We are confident the refreshed model will continue to impress Irish motorists.”
