Renault Captur is the name of subcompact crossover SUVs manufactured by the French automaker Renault.The production version of the first one, based on the B platform, made its debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and started to be marketed in France during April 2013. The Captur Concept was first shown at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
Under the "same skin with different specification" strategy adopted by Renault,the Captur is available in a larger version based on the cheaper B0 platform. It uses the similar styling but with an extended wheelbase, greater ground clearance and all-wheel-drive drivetrain. Referred internally as the "Captur Global Access", the vehicle is produced in Russia, Brazil and India.
There are two different versions of the first generation Captur each built on its own platform. The B platform version was produced between 2013 and 2019 and the B0 platform "Global Access" version started production in 2016.

The car is based on the fourth generation Clioand incorporates design lines from the homonymous concept, as part of Renault's renovated design strategy developed by Laurens van den Acker. It has various customisation options for the interior and the exterior.
The car suspension is made up of MacPherson struts on front and a twist-beam axle on rear. Brakes are discs on front and drums on rear.
The Captur has some new elements, such as a large drawer-like glovebox that is more easily reachable by the driver, instead of a conventional glove compartment in left hand drive models.
The Captur originally had four trim levels in the UK: Expression, Expression+, Dynamique Media Nav and Dynamique S Media Nav. In December 2013, Renault added a top-of-the-range Signature trim and, in 2015, the Iconic.In 2018, the Captur added the sportier S-edition. As standard, it has parking sensors and voice activation for certain functions. In some versions, it also adds removable seat covers with zippers, a new Renault satellite navigation system with touchscreen, reverse cameras and automated head lamps and windscreen wiper.
The Captur achieved a five star rating at the 2013 EuroNCAP tests.Between its standard safety equipment, it has three point seat belts, two airbags, cruise control, speed limiter, ESC, ABS and audible and visual seat belt reminder warnings. Renault Captur is also equipped with Hill-Start assist feature.
In May 2017, Renault introduced a facelifted Captur with slightly revised interior and exterior designs, more customisation options and improved equipment.
The Captur is powered by a range of petrol and diesel engines.

A larger car with a similar styling as the original Captur but with a larger wheelbase and ground clearance is being produced by Renault to capture emerging markets. This model is referred internally by Renault as the "Captur Global Access" (Captur GA).Compared to the B platform-based Captur, the Captur GA is cheaper to build as it is based on the first generation Dacia Duster platform instead of the fourth generation Clio while offering larger cabin space.
The Captur GA was first introduced in Russia and the neighbouring CIS countries in 2016, badged as the Renault Kaptur. Change of the naming was explained by the difficulties of the correct pronunciation of the original "Captur" name in the Russian language. The Renault Kaptur is manufactured by the Renault Russia plant since April 2016.The front wheel drive version of this car is powered by the 1.6-litre engine and has manual gearbox or CVT, while all wheel drive versions have the 2.0-litre engine and manual or a 4-speed automatic gearbox.
A localised Brazilian version was introduced in the beginning of 2017, badged as the Renault Captur.The Brazilian version has manual (five-speed), CVT and automatic (four-speed) gearboxes. That same year, the Brazilian Captur was named as Best Design by Americar (automotive press association of Latin America). The car got a 4-star safety rating in the 2017 Latin NCAP tests. The Brazilian-made Captur GA is exported throughout Latin America.
The car is available in the Indian market since 2017, also badged as Captur.Production and pre orders started in September 2017. It was also offered with a 1.5 L K9K diesel engine until April 2020. Advertising videos from Renault India got a negative reception in some forum and media outlets for allegedly "misinform" customers on the car awards by mentioning the ones received by the B platform version.
The Captur GA is very closely related with the Indian market Nissan Kicks (P16), as the Indian Kicks is essentially a restyled Captur GA while sharing the same chassis, engines and other parts to cut costs. Both are currently built at the same manufacturing plant jointly owned by Renault and Nissan in Chennai, India. The Captur GA was discontinued in India in 2020 due to lacklustre sales.
In May 2020, Renault Russia launched the facelifted Kaptur.Apart from several subtle exterior and interior updates, the car is now engineered above the B0+ platform instead of the B0 for better ride quality, resulting in more than 55 percent components being updated. The hydraulic power steering was ditched in favour of the modern electric power steering, which in turn allowed the steering column to be adjusted for reach. The Kaptur received a new 1.3 L H5Ht petrol turbo engine, replacing the 2.0 L F4R naturally aspirated petrol engine.
At first, the B0 model did not have diesel engines. It mounts engines either burning petrol (for Russia-assembled vehicles) or a mix of petrol/ethanol (for Brazil-assembled vehicles).The India-assembled Captur had a diesel engine as an option.
