Renault Captur 2021: Goodbye To Diesel?

Revolution in the Renault Captur range. This urban SUV widely modifies its mechanical offer; the access version reduces its power, although the 1.3 TCe engines come with surprises. Finally, what will happen to the 1.5 Blue dCi diesel?

The second generation of the Renault Captur continues to reap successes inside and outside our borders. This urban SUV has won over consumers due to its general balance, the versatility of its cabin –thanks to its movable rear bench-, the customization possibilities, or its high levels of safety. Without a doubt, some compelling arguments to stand up to rivals such as the Ford Puma, Mazda CX-3, Nissan Juke, Opel MokkaPeugeot 2008Seat Arona, Skoda Kamiq or the Volkswagen T-Cross and T-Roc.

As a more ecological option, the plug-in hybrid version E-TECH 160 -with 158 CV- will follow; This variant accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 10.1 seconds, reaches 173 km / h, and consumes only 1.5 liters / 100 km. Also, it includes sophisticated multi-link suspension – and brake discs on both axles.

Finally, according to the official Renault document to which we have had access, the brand abolishes the 1.5 Blue dCi diesel engines of 95 and 115 hp. Later we will know if it is a temporary measure or a final goodbye.
