Renault has announced the new 2013 Captur – The new supermini crossover.

The vehicle will be available to order in the UK from 1st May. With keen pricing and a series of life-simplifing features up its sleeve, it will also be looking to make serious inroads in the booming B-segment crossover class. Led by its sister Alliance car, Nissan Juke, the market's already growing fast on the back of the MINI Countryman and the slightly larger Chevrolet Trax and Vauxhall Mokka. It's expected to explode even more with the future launches of rivals such as the Fiat 500X, Ford EcoSport and Peugeot 2008.

UK prices are confirmed from £12,495 on-the-road, which undercuts current class top-seller by £500.

There are four trim levels for Renault's first supermini crossover: Expression, Expression+, Dynamique MediaNav and Dynamique S MediaNav.

The standard equipment includes 16" alloy wheels, 60/40 split and sliding rear seat bench, body coloured bumpers, cruise control, ECO mode (up to 10% fuel saving), ESC (Electronic Stability Control), ETC (Electronic Traction Control), front and rear electric windows, HSA (Hill Start Assist), speed limiter, trip computer.

The top of range Dynamique S MediaNav offers 17" Explore alloy wheels (choice of coloured inserts), contrasting roof and door mirror colour, Exterior Gloss and Interior Touch Packs, City Pack (electric folding door mirrors and rear parking sensors), heated front seats, extra tinted rear windows.

The options list includes: Renault R-Link (including TomTom sat nav, 4x35W Arkamys 3D Sound) £450, reversing camera (Dynamique MediaNav and above), City Pack (£395), heated front seats (£250), metallic paint £495 (including i.d. Arizona and Tahoe Blue £595), painted roof £300, Interior Touch (£350) and Exterior Gloss Packs (£350)

The engine range features an all-new 1.2 TCe 120 EDC; 0.9 TCe 90 and 1.5 dCi 90. The dCi 90 EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) follows later in 2013. Stop&Start standard on every manual. dCi 90 also sub-100g/km.
