Renault has officially brought the Captur Concept to life with a new small crossover. The production version has abandoned the wild scissor doors and bulbous fenders of the concept in favor of a more mature five-door configuration.
Based on the Renault Clio, the Captur offers buyers a range of gasoline and diesel engines. While the automaker hasn’t served up any drivetrain specifics, we’d be surprised if the Captur option sheet didn’t come littered with the same powerplants as its cousin, including a turbocharged .9-liter three-cylinder and a 1.2-liter turbocharged gasoline engine as well as a 1.5-liter diesel. A six-speed dual-clutch transmission handles shifting duties in all applications.
The Captur will be built at the Renault facility in Valladolid, Spain. Expect to see the machine receive an official unveil at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March. Until then, you can take a closer look at the full press release below, and be sure to click through the complete gallery here as well.
