Cosmetically, the 2020Renault Captur is chunkier than before, while LED headlights are now standard across the range. Extra chrome gives it a more upmarket appearance than before, while the lights have been redesigned in-keeping with the rest of the Renault range.

Bigger changes are inside, where Renault says it’s added high-grade materials and soft coverings for the dashboard. 

There’s also a new Smart Cockpit featuring an optional 9.3-inch portrait infotainment screen along with a digital instrument cluster available in either 7- or 10-inch layouts.

As before, the new Captur features a sliding rear bench seat that allows you to prioritise space for rear passengers or luggage. Boot capacity is up 81 litres taking it to 536 litres in total - bigger than the Honda HR-V, SEAT Arona and Ford Ecosport. 

Buyers can choose from three petrol and two diesel engines. The petrol options include the new TCe 100 turbocharged three-cylinder 1.0-litre which made its debut in the new Clio, along with 130 and 155 versions of the 1.3-litre TCe engine.

The diesel line-up is made of a Blue dCi engine with 95 or 115PS, while buyers can also choose from a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. 

The E-tech plug-in hybrid model from 2020, combines a 1.6-litre petrol engine with an electric motor and is capable of covering up to 28 miles under electric power alone. Its 9.8kWh battery "will always retain enough charge to move away at low speeds under electric power", while a strong regenerative braking system means you'll be able to resort to one-pedal driving.

In a bid to appeal to a youthful market, the 2020 Renault Captur is offered in as many as 90 different colour combinations, with buyers able to choose from different colours for the bodywork, roof, door mirrors and skid plates.

The new Renault Captur is on sale from September 2019, orders taken from August 2019.
