After first showing the exterior of the 2018 Renault Captur small SUV at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the French automaker has backed up the new look with additional details of the facelifted model as it launches overseas.
Taillights also get refreshed internals for a more contemporary look, alloy wheel designs have been revised, and front and rear skid plates have been added to give the city-centric SUV a more robust look.
Once again a wide range of customisation options will allow buyers to tailor a Captur suit their style with a choice of six different colour customisation packs in a choice of white, blue, caramel, red and two chrome finishes, along with separate highlight elements finished in blue, red, orange or a new cappuccino-inspired hue.
The interior takes a trip upmarket via new soft-touch materials used throughout the cabin, including a revised leather steering wheel for high-grade models, a new gear lever, and restyled door cards.
The Captur also retains its zip-off seat trims, allowing for quick and easy machine washing, or on-the-spot customisation should owners have a change of heart about their interior colour choice.
Renault claims to have paid particular attention to the fit and finish of the car, lifting it from its previous cut-price feel to a more like a premium proposition. Infotainment systems will also be given an overhaul, with high-end models gaining Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
Safety systems have been expanded with front parking sensors, blind spot warning and self-parking systems newly available, but as before the Captur does without autonomous emergency braking and rear curtain airbags.
Renault Australia expects the car to arrive locally later this year. Local prices and specifications will be available closer to its launch.
