A few weeks after the plug-in hybrid version “E-Tech Plug-In” , the Renault Captur arrives today in a simple hybrid version, called “E-Tech”!

In this configuration, the diamond SUV combines a 1.6 L petrol and two electric motors for a total power of 145 horsepower. Above all, the crossover promises an average consumption of 5 L / 100 km . A type of engine that is still very rare in the segment , since neither the Peugeot 2008 nor the Volkswagen T-Roc are available in hybrids for the moment. You have to look to the Toyota C-HR to find a hybrid on a small urban SUV.

The Renault Captur E-Tech is displayed from 27,100 € in Zen finish : it is 3,500 € more than the TCe 140 gasoline in manual gearbox (23,600 €), at the same level of range. As standard, it has automatic lighting of the lights, automatic air conditioning and a customizable 7-inch dashboard.

Renault Kiger (2021) the new urban SUV of the diamond

Renault lifts the veil on a new urban SUV, the Kiger, which unfortunately will not arrive in France since it is intended for the Indian market.

It was announced for some time, here it is finally: Renault unveils its new compact SUV, the Kiger. Prefigured by an eponymous show-car in November 2020 , the model is presented today “in the flesh”.

But let’s say it straight away, this model should not land on French soil since it is currently reserved for the only Indian market, like the Kwid before it. In India, it will also join the Duster and Triber within the Renault range. However, it will be marketed internationally in a second phase, probably in emerging markets.

Little but strong

To appeal to customers in these countries, the production version of the Kiger strayed very little from the original concept. Like the latter, it indeed displays contained dimensions (3.99 m long, 1.75 m wide, 1.60 m high and 2.50 m wheelbase all for 1.012 kg) and a strong personality. with a very robust look.

We particularly notice its massive front face, with an imposing shield and a sculpted bonnet, as well as its wings with marked shoulders. And to further strengthen its adventurer side, the Kiger also inherits a ground clearance of 20.5 cm, large arches of black wheels and roof bars.

At the rear, there are LED lights in the shape of “C” on a shiny black background and a protective ski in aluminum finish. The inclined line of the bezel and the roof spoiler add a little touch of dynamism to the whole.

Spacious and technological

On board, Renault has added a large 8-inch floating touch screen compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a 7-inch digital handset. In the rear seats, the brand announces a legroom of 222 mm while the loading volume of the trunk is between 405 and 879 liters (bench lowered). The maximum loading length capped at 1.56 m.

Only in essence

Under the hood, two petrol engines are available: a 1.0L atmospheric Energy engine with 72 hp and 96 Nm of torque, with a 5-speed manual gearbox or Easy-R 5-speed robotic gearbox, and a 3-cylinder 1.0L turbo petrol of 100 hp and 160 nm of torque. This unit is associated with a manual 5-speed gearbox. Later, the X-Tronic continuously variable automatic transmission will also be offered.

Available in 6 body colors available in two-tone, the Kiger will be marketed later this year.
