Renault unveils the 2022 Captur for Brazil
The current-gen Renault Captur has been around in Brazil for five long years, so it should not be surprising that the company decided to refresh it with new design trails, equipment and motorization options.
Starting with the exterior, there is a new front bumper and radiator grille. The steering wheel inside can now be adjusted for reach, the armrest and the box are new, the transmission tunnel has been redesigned, and the dash panel no longer has a tray on top.
Buyers of the most basic spec get four airbags and a multimedia system with an 8-inch touch-sensitive display. Paying extra unlocks blind spot monitoring, all-around view cameras, and a two-tone interior trim.
Naturally aspirated engines are gone for good, leaving a new 1.3-liter turbo engine as the only option. The mill is imported from Spain and produces 170 PS (168 hp / 125 kW) in tandem with a CVT and front-wheel drive system. The power steering mechanism is now electrical.
Prices in Brazil start from the equivalent of U.S. $23,800. For comparison, a Hyundai Creta starts from $19,000.
