2020 Renault Captur rear seats

The Captur was already one of the more spacious crossovers, but a few tweaks have improved this further inside.

In total it’s a little longer than the old car (110mm), while the front seats have been sculpted to free up some extra space for longer legs in the rear. Rear seat space is pretty good anyway, as long as you don’t have the bench slid forwards (a feature carried over from the old car). However, you’ll only be sliding it forwards to free up some extra boot space anyway – buyers can pick and choose what their priorities are. It’s just a shame you can’t slide individual seats.

In the boot with the seats slid back, there’s 444 litres of room on offer with the boot floor in its lowest setting (395 with it set higher). If you slide the seats forwards, total space is an impressive 536 litres, while the seat backs split 60:40 to free up some more space – up to 1,334 litres. Just remember there’s basically no rear legroom when the seats are forwards.

There’s a good amount of extra storage throughout, with big door bins, a central armrest and cupholders between the seats. Beneath the climate controls there’s an area to keep your mobile phone, while automatic cars come with a slightly different centre console design with an area beneath where the gearlever is for extra bits and pieces.

A key factor in people buying crossovers is the ease of access, and the Captur sits a little higher than the Skoda Kamiq and Mazda CX-3, and is easier to get in and out of as a result.

How safe is it?

  • Suite of driver assistance tech as standard
  • Expected to score five stars by Euro NCAP
  • Renault has a good reputation for safety

The Captur hasn’t been tested by Euro NCAP yet, but we’d expect a full five-star rating based on the smaller Clio’s performance and the amount of safety and driver assistance technology fitted as standard.

All Capturs get lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist, autonomous emergency braking and traffic sign recognition, as well as useful features like cruise control and LED headlights.

Available on S Edition models is a Traffic and Motorway Assistance Pack, featuring what Renault calls highway and Traffic Jam Companion. Essentially, it’ll stop and go in queueing traffic largely on its own in combination with the adaptive cruise control. This pack also adds 360-degree cameras and blindspot monitoring.

Once you’ve learned how to operate these functions via several different buttons on the steering wheel, it’s quite smooth and responsive, although the camera quality isn’t quite up there with the best.
