Renault Captur is the name of subcompact crossovers manufactured by the French automaker Renault. The production version of the first one, based on the B platform, made its debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and started to be marketed in France during April 2013. The Captur Concept was first shown at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
Under the 'same skin with different specification' strategy adopted by Renault, the Captur is available in another version which is larger and based on the cheaper B0 platform. It uses the similar styling but with an extended wheelbase, greater ground clearance and all-wheel-drive drivetrain. Referred internally as the 'Captur Global Access', the vehicle is produced in Russia, Brazil and India.
There are two different versions of the first generation Captur each built on its own platform. The B platform version was produced between 2013 and 2019 and the B0 platform version started production in 2016.

The car is based on the fourth generation Clio and incorporates design lines from the homonymous concept, as part of Renault's renovated design strategy developed by Laurens van den Acker. It has various customisation options for the interior and the exterior.
The Captur originally had four trim levels in the UK: Expression, Expression+, Dynamique Media Nav and Dynamique S Media Nav. In December 2013, Renault added a top-of-the-range Signature trim and, in 2015, the Iconic. In 2018, the Captur added the sportier S-edition. As standard, it has parking sensors and voice activation for certain functions. In some versions, it also adds removable seat covers with zippers, a new Renault satellite navigation system with touchscreen, reverse cameras and automated head lamps and windscreen wiper.
The Captur achieved a five star rating at the 2013 EuroNCAP tests. Between its standard safety equipment, it has three point seat belts, two airbags, cruise control, speed limiter, ESC, ABS and audible and visual seat belt reminder warnings. Renault Captur is also equipped with Hill-Start assist feature.
In May 2017, Renault introduced a facelifted Captur with slightly revised interior and exterior designs, more customisation options and improved equipment.
Despite being on the market for less than a full year, it managed to rank third in the European small crossover segment for 2013, with just over 84,000 sales, behind the Nissan Juke and the Dacia Duster, and it was the segment's best seller in the last quarter of 2013.
At the end of 2015, Renault Captur was ranked 14th out of the 20 most sold cars in Europe with 195,323 units.

Renault Samsung QM3
The Renault Samsung QM3 is a badge engineered version of the Captur, launched in South Korea at the Seoul Motor Show in April 2013, shortly after its European counterpart was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show. The QM3 was officially released on 6 December 2013, and the initial 1,000 cars allocated to South Korea sold out within seven minutes.
The QM3's dimensions and wheelbase are identical to the Captur's, while the engine range is limited to a single dCi 90 four cylinder diesel and dual clutch transmission.

A larger car with a similar styling as the original Captur but with a larger wheelbase and ground clearance is being produced by Renault to capture emerging markets. This model is referred internally by Renault as the 'Captur Global Access' (Captur GA). Compared to the B platform-based Captur, the Captur GA is cheaper to build as it is based on the first generation Dacia Duster platform instead of the fourth generation Clio while offering larger cabin space.
The Captur GA was first introduced in Russia and the neighbouring CIS countries in 2016, badged as the Renault Kaptur. Change of the naming was explained by the difficulties of the correct pronunciation of the original "Captur" name in the Russian language. The Renault Kaptur is manufactured by the Renault Russia plant since April 2016. The front wheel drive version of this car is powered by the 1.6 litre engine and has manual gearbox or CVT, while all wheel drive versions have the 2.0 litre engine and manual or automatic (four-speed) gearbox.
A localised Brazilian version was introduced in the beginning of 2017, badged as the Renault Captur. The Brazilian version has manual (five-speed), CVT and automatic (four-speed) gearboxes. That same year, the Brazilian Captur was named as Best Design by Americar (automotive press association of Latin America). The car got a 4-star safety rating in the 2017 Latin NCAP tests. The Brazilian-made Captur GA is exported throughout Latin America.
The car is available in the Indian market since 2017, also badged as Captur. Production and pre orders started in September 2017. It was also offered with a 1.5 L K9K diesel engine until April 2020. Advertising videos from Renault India got a negative reception in some forum and media outlets for allegedly "misinform" customers on the car awards by mentioning the ones received by the B platform version.
The Captur GA is very closely related with the Indian market Nissan Kicks (P16), as the Indian Kicks is essentially a restyled Captur GA while sharing the same chassis, engines and other parts to cut costs. Both are currently built at the same manufacturing plant jointly owned by Renault and Nissan in Chennai, India. The Captur GA was discontinued in India in 2020 due to lacklustre sales.
In May 2020, Renault Russia launched the facelifted Kaptur. Apart from several subtle exterior and interior updates, the car is now engineered above the B0+ platform instead of the B0 for better ride quality, resulting in more than 55% components being updated. The hydraulic power steering was ditched in favour of the modern electric power steering, which in turn allowed the steering column to be adjusted for reach. The Kaptur received a new 1.3 L H5Ht petrol turbo engine, replacing the 2.0 L F4R naturally aspirated petrol engine.
At first, the B0 model did not have diesel engines. It mounts engines either burning petrol (for Russia-assembled vehicles) or a mix of petrol/ethanol (for Brazil-assembled vehicles). The India-assembled Captur had a diesel engine as an option.

In Mexico, the Bose limited edition was launched in early December 2019. It is based on the Iconic trim line, and only available in a grey colour, with an option of a black or white roof option.

The Captur is a mini SUV, and it is the second of six concept cars showing Renaults future design directions. The first was the Renault DeZir. It was designed by Julio Lozano under the leadership of Renault's design chief Laurens Van den Acker.
It is based on the same platform as its partner Nissan's Juke. The Captur is powered by a twin-turbocharged version of the 1.6 L dCi "Energy" engine which will be rolled out among Renault and Nissan models during 2011. The engine produces 158 bhp (118 kW; 160 PS) and 280 lb⋅ft (380 N⋅m) of torque, and the Captur can accelerate from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 8.0 seconds a low 99 g/km of CO2 emission figure and a top speed of 130 mph (209.2 km/h).
The car is made from carbon fibre, has butterfly doors and has a removable roof. It weighs 1,300 kg (2,866 lb) and features large 22 inch wheels. Despite its crossover appearance, the Captur is front-wheel drive and features Renault's new ‘RX2’ mechanical self-locking differential to transfer the available torque to the driven wheel with the most grip.
