While Nissan was the first out of the blocks with its trend-setting supermini-based SUV - the Nissan Juke - it wasn’t long before Nissan's sister brand Renault followed suit. Like the Juke, the Renault Captur shares much of its engineering with the Renault Clio supermini, and it also comes with a fashionable high-riding body designed to suggest a whiff of rugged off-road capability.

Despite its looks, the Captur doesn't offer any practical off-road capability, and it doesn't claim to be sporty to drive either, as is the case with many modern cars, but instead it offers strong levels of comfort - and it's all the better for it. The supermini-style easy-driving characteristics of the Captur is central to its appeal.

The first-generation Captur hit UK streets in 2013, and it was updated in 2017. A new version was launched in 2019 and is a better all-rounder than the previous model, with its continuing popularity ensuring that there are loads of options and price points for used car hunters looking for a great deal.

If you’re on a really tight budget, you can pay as little as £6,500 for a low-mileage 2016 first-generation Renault Captur, which equates to monthly payments of around £130* on Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) finance. Prices for second-generation cars start at less than £15,000 or a little over £200* per month.

Whichever model you choose, you'll get yourself an eye-catching compact family car, that’s ‘on-trend’ as well as being cheap to run and easy to drive.

Relatively bold styling was one of the key Captur selling points from day one, and the popularity of the striking design meant the look was simply honed for the second-generation car. It’s most obviously different at the front where C-shape headlights give the new Captur a wider and more aggressive look, and indeed the second-generation model is marginally bigger, which translates to a little extra rear legroom inside.

While the arrival of the second-generation model came technical advances especially visible in the cabin. Second-generation versions are markedly more appealing, with improvements in the quality of design, materials, and the overall fit and finish. There’s also a significant uplift in the onboard tech, which in the cabin is demonstrated by an optional digital instrument display and bigger 9.3-inch central touchscreen media system on higher-spec cars. The first-generation Captur had a seven-inch screen with fewer features.

Whichever generation of Captur you’re looking at, you’ll be able to enjoy a cabin that’s roomier than the Renault Clio, upon which it’s based, and a boot that competes with cars from the next class up for room. In that respect it’s far more practical option than the Juke, and second-generation Capturs are even better, with a rear bench seat that slides backwards and forwards for more legroom or boot space, depending which is more important to you at the time.

There are plenty of Captur engine options in the current lineup, with three petrol and two diesel engines and even a plug-in hybrid. All are two-wheel drive only, but you can specify an automatic gearbox for most engines. There’s a similar breadth of engine and gearbox options in the older version, but no hybrid.

Renault Captur deals

If you want a relatively new Renault Captur but don’t want to pay high dealer prices, then BuyaCar has great offers on nearly new and year-old Capturs that could save you thousands. New prices for the popular Iconic grade with a 1.0-litre petrol engine start at a whisker under £20,600 but we have 2020 models with just 10,000 miles on the clock for less than £15,000.

Go for PCP finance and that means you could be driving the latest Captur for a little over £200* per month with a relatively low £1,500 deposit. That’s for a 48-month contract with an optional final payment of £6,800 that you only make if you want to keep the car.

If you want to push the boat out with a plug-in hybrid model, we have examples of the plug-in Captur E-Tech with less than a couple of thousand miles on the clock for as little as £26,000. That saves you £5,000 on the cost of a brand new one.

If your budget is a bit more limited, then the cheapest first-generation Renault Captur deals start at just over £6,000 or £130* per month on PCP finance. That nets you a 2014 model with around 50,000 miles on the clock, but you should be able to find one with a decent specification level with sat-nav included. A budget of £10,000 could get you into a 2019 Captur - the last full year of the first-generation model - with top specification, low mileage examples costing £16,000 or so.

Which Renault Captur deal is best for you?

Whichever generation you’re looking at, it’s likely the petrol powered Capturs will be best for those who drive mainly short distances or in town, with the diesels only really making sense for those who cover high annual mileages, with around 60mpg fuel economy possible, compared to around 40mpg for the petrols.

There are lots of first-generation diesels on offer, but relatively few second-generation diesel Capturs. In fact, you may find more plug-in hybrid Capturs than diesels to choose from. These work for people who don't cover many particularly long trips, as the plug-in E-Tech version can cover up to 30 miles on electric power. Charge regularly and avoid long journeys and you can do most of your journeys on electric power alone, cutting your fuel bills dramatically.

As for individual trim grades, we’ve set out the latest specs for the current Captur lineup below. Pre-update first-generation cars (pre-2017) had a more complicated trim level format running through Expression+, Dynamique Nav, Dynamique S Nav, Signature X Nav and Signature S Nav. Avoid Expression+ versions if you want the touchscreen sat-nav system fitted to all other grades, while the Signature S Nav comes with part-leather seats, a Bose sound system and a reversing camera.

Renault Captur Play deals

The entry-level version of the second-generation Renault Captur has a wealth of desirable features including a seven-inch touchscreen media system that’s compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as automatic air-conditioning, front and rear electric windows, driver's seat height adjustment and rake and reach steering wheel adjustment.

Automatic-folding electric door mirrors, tinted rear windows and a hands-free keycard are also included, along with 17-inch alloy wheels and LED front and rear lights. Safety and driving assistance features are also impressive, as the Play comes with traffic sign recognition, cruise control, lane departure warning and autonomous emergency braking on the long list of standard features.
