. Renault says that when creating the car, it tried to combine the driving position of an SUV, the capacity of an MPV and the driving style of a compact sedan.

The Captur’s styling is pretty clearly derived from the new ClioClio Gen.4Renault Clio Gen.4France, 2012 > present97 versions

. It is slightly boxier, though, and its white roof gives a pleasant contrast. The design is not as limit-pushing as the Juke, but it is certainly not boring.

“Renault Captur is a compact, unaggressive crossover which is particularly user-friendly. It benefits from Renault genes through and through,” said Benoit Bochard, director of Renault A- and B-Segment cars.

The Captur measures 4.12m, and with its wheels pushed to the edges and forward windscreen, it has remarkable interior room. Renault’s designers tried to make the cabin colorful and airy to be unpretentious and inviting. The car will come standard with hands-free entry, hill start assist and rear parking sensors when it goes on sale.

Renault has also built a new, optional touchscreen infotainment system called R-Link that includes Bluetooth, audio streaming and optional navigation.

When it goes on sale, the car will be offered with a group of engines shared with the new Clio. Renault is not saying specifically which ones yet, but the cleanest models will produce 96g/km of CO2.

The Captur will be fully revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and it will be built in Spain.
