  • Efficient diesels and petrols
  • Captur E-Tech Plug-in coming soon
  • Should be cheap to run most models

All petrol engines come with some impressive fuel economy claims, with the lowest figure coming from the TCe 130 with a manual gearbox, returning a claimed 44.1mpg. That should be easily achievable, as we found the car reporting around 40-42mpg on a varied driving route.

The rest of the range improves from here, with the TCe 100 claiming 47.1mpg, and the TCe 130 EDC and TCe 155 EDC both returning up to 44.8mpg.

Unsurprisingly, the diesels are more impressive in fuel economy terms, with all three versions of the dCi engine reporting up to 58.9mpg.

CO2 emissions are more varied, with petrols ranging from 107g/km (TCe 100) to 126g/km (TCe 155 EDC), while the dCi 115 produces 116g/km of CO2.

Is it reliable?

  • Lots of new tech onboard
  • Hard to tell how it’ll be long-term
  • Feels a well-built car overall

The Captur uses newer mechanical components and chassis parts like the Clio, so it doesn’t have years of records to prove its reliability. As well as this, the new infotainment technology and digital features are new, but we found they all worked as they should without any glitches that you sometimes find in early cars.

If you do have any concerns, the Captur comes with a three-year warranty, and the overall feel inside is one of quality and a solid build.
