The Captur, an exciting-looking B-segment crossover from Renault, was launched this week and I was in Johannesburg to drive it. The Renault Captur is the French brand's compact crossover and on the back of massive sales in Europe, much is expected of this vehicle in South Africa. The Captur is no different and is a serious head turner, especially in its bold Bi-Tone colour scheme. There are two derivatives to choose from: Dynamique and Expression, but interestingly there's not much to separate them.
The other engine is a turbo'd 1.2-litre four-cylinder motor and this is coupled to a six-speed twin-clutch gearbox.
The twin-clutch gearbox had me instinctively feeling around the steering wheel for shift paddles, and there were none to be found. The engine may feel a little underpowered, but this is essentially the only mark against an otherwise good car, and even then it will only be a problem for some customers. Another Renault party trick is offering an amazing amount of specification fitted as standard. On the practicality side of things, the Renault Captur is a lot more versatile than the Clio which it is based upon.
Aside from a slightly underpowered engine, the Renault Captur is a promising product and takes the fight to the Ford EcoSport and Nissan Juke, both of which have been a success in our market. Production of the current Clio will continue at the Renault factory in Slovenia leaving the factories in France to produce the New Clio.
The Clio II range sees the revival of the Campus name, which was last seen in the 1990’s when the Renault 5 remained on sale at the launch of the first generation Clio. Now Clio Campus will continue alongside New Clio for several years, providing stylish, practical comfort at an affordable price.
Clio Campus is available to order now in three-door only, starting from A?7,895 rising to A?9,495 a price reduction of over A?300 compared to the previous equivalent versions.
The Campus versions share the same equipment specification as the previous special edition Clio’s they are based on, the Rush (Campus) and Extreme 4 (Campus Sport). However as well as gaining Euro IV engines, the dCi engine available on both Campus and Campus Sport benefits from an increase in power from 65hp to 68hp. The Clio Campus range is available in nine colours, three non-metallic – Pacific Blue, Capsicum Red and Glacier White - and six metallic - Ottoman Blue and Tempest (Campus Sport only), Mercury, Flame Red, Cyclone Blue and Pearl Black.
The information contained this Renault Clio news article may have changed since publication on the 23 October 2005. The upcoming Renault Koleos 2017 will be a modern SUV with a variety of modern features meant to make it fit perfectly in the market.
The new generation of the Koleos shares its underpinnings with the Nissan X-Trail, which is sold as the Rogue in North America, riding on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s Common Module Family (CMF) platform. Bumper remains unchanged from the previous model, but the fog lamps have been redesigned to make them more visible and effective in reducing reflective light.
The car’s expected reveal at the Beijing motor show suggests that it will go on sale firstly in China before it reaches European markets next year.


The BMW-owned Mini brand is celebrating its 50th anniversary by launching a pair of Mini Cooper models to commemorate the milestone.
The Mini 50 Mayfair is a throwback to the 1982 model of the same name and is available in hot-chocolate, pepper-white and midnight-black.
The Mini 50 Camden model is named after the UK borough and is available in white-silver, midnight-black and blue-metallic, all with a contrasting white roof. It is a shame when car makers design and market cars like they are funky mobile phones or funky god knows what.. Drive Arabia serves Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Northern Emirates car markets, and relevant to the Middle East region, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar & Bahrain.
Another wheelchaiir up front sold and delivered to york in north yorkshire, the customer came down to our showroom, chose a car asked for a part exchange price which they was happy with they then secured the kangoo upfront car with a deposit and we delivered the car to haxby in york 3 days later. The Captur, like the Renault Clio upon which it is based, was designed by Dutch-born Laurens van den Acker. Sunset Orange is the official launch colour and can be ordered with either a black or white roof. This is a similar unit to the one found in the Renault Clio RenaultSport, but not identical. There's a slight hesitation upon take off, but once you're moving the engine pulls reasonably well.
The Captur offers the drive of a normal hatchback, boasts MPV-like practicality and space, while even throwing in good ground clearance of 170mm like an SUV.
There's a decent amount of legroom for the rear passengers, and the rear bench can slide forwards and backwards. With Renault reporting European sales of around 161 000 units sold in 2014 alone, the Renault Captur should do well here.
Whereas New Clio is a similar price to current Clio, with this reduction in price Renault can now offer a lower entry-level option.
Makers of this car have incorporated diverse technologically oriented features to make this vehicle powerful, good looking and comfortable.
LED lights are still technology, but modified, where they now look slimmer and more aggressive.
It includes a big central display, slightly modified steering wheel, leather seats with contrast stitching, rectangular air vents, TFT screen with digital speedometer and much more. Dubbed the 50 Mayfair and the 50 Camden, Mini launched the limited-edition models at the marque’s 50th birthday party at the United Festival at Silverstone in Britain.
This man is responsible for the big bold Renault logo on the nose of the car and even from a non-car enthusiast's point of view, these designs are simply breathtaking. I have a particular lust for a Pacific Blue with a Diamond Black roof which looks sensational.
Firstly, there's the familiar 0.9-litre three-cylinder turbo which does duty in the Renault Sandero and Renault Clio. Our launch route took us from the Cradle of Humankind to Sun City, via Hartebeespoort Dam and it was on these roads that I got to sample the Captur's abilities.


Renault was keen to show off its offroad credentials to us and the launch route included numerous dirt roads of varying qualities.
Satellite navigation, Bluetooth, cruise control, USB port, touchscreen infotainment, auto headlights, rain-sensing wipers as well as the usual safety acronyms of ABS, EBD and airbags have been thrown in. When these seats are folded flat and the bottom of the boot has been dropped, you're looking at 1 235 litres of space to play with.
You may wish to check with the manufacturer or your local Renault dealer, before making a purchasing decision. The exterior comes with improved features most of which are copied from the predecessor to maintain the appealing look. Ventilation holes have been enlarged to make sure to get sufficient cooling air into the engine and front brakes. The Mayfair also features unique badging celebrating MINI’s 50th anniversary and the brand’s best stereo option.
Like the Mayfair model, the Camden sports a grille-mounted 50th anniversary badge and is available on all MINI versions.
It has 66kW, and based on that spec item alone (I did not drive it), I'd be a little apprehensive of the performance. Thanks to Renault's great safety and stability features, I felt confident when driving through gravel and sand.
On the safety side of things, the Renault Captur scored a five-star rating at the 2013 round of evaluations. The interior has also been improved where there are state of the art features which provide comfort and great riding experience.
The 50 Mayfair package is available on all Mini models, including Cooper, Convertible and Clubman, for one year starting from September. Drive the Captur in a gentle manner and let the gearbox shift on its own accord, and things are adequate.
