CAPTUR: ON THE ADVENTURE TRAIL
A sporty crossover with a flowing and athletic body language, it expresses the idea of two people exploring the world.
Its small, twin-turbo engine combines driving fun, enjoyable performance and low CO2 emissions.
Captur makes use of a twin-turbo engine-concept, developed from the new 1.6 dCi, Energy dCi 130. Downsizing is a key element in Renault's strategy to meet its declared objective of being Europe's leading automaker with regard to CO2 emissions. The range of electric vehicles will run alongside internal-combustion engined models that combine performance with contained fuel consumption. This Energy dCi Concept engine fits perfectly within this strategy. It produces 118kW (160hp) from a capacity of 1.6 litres – that's a specific power output of 100hp per litre, which is comparable with that of engines such as the one under the bonnet of Clio Renaultsport. Peak torque (380Nm) is available from as low as 1,750rpm, giving powerful acceleration from low revs, as well as refined performance under all driving conditions. Paired with a dual clutch EDC gearbox, this driveline promises genuinely enjoyable driving with CO2 emissions of 99g/km.
