Expands the electrified offer in Renault (photo: manufacturer's website)
After years without an alternative drive in its showroom, Renault continues to expand the hybrid representation in its showroom.
After the Arcana that arrived here last year, and before the arrival of the new Australian, it adds a hybrid version to the Capture - its representative in the field of small crossovers such as Peugeot 2008, Skoda Kamik and others.
The E-Tech Hybrid Capture will use the drive system we have already met in Arcana.
A combination of a 1.6-liter engine and an electric unit that consists of two engines and is powered by a 1.2 kWh battery. The drive is forward through two gearboxes, one electric and the other automatic with a four-speed electric combination that will be used by the gasoline engine.
The combined power will be 143 hp and the performance is 10.6 seconds for 100 km/h and a maximum of 170 km/h. The declared fuel consumption is similar to that displayed by hybrid crossovers in the vicinity - 21.3 km per liter.
For the sake of comparison, the Toyota CHR, which is about to be replaced, shows a figure of 20.4 km per liter and the Hyundai Kona Hybrid stands at 25.4 km per liter, the competitor from the Nissan Juke Hybrid offers 19.6 km per liter.

The Hybrid Capture will be marketed in three trim levels;
intense which will be the entry level and above it Executive and Edition One which will be the highest.
As standard at the entry level, it gets an electric handbrake, a 7-inch multimedia system with Android and Apple, climate control, a smart key, steering wheel heating, air conditioning outlets for the rear seat, a 12V socket for those sitting in the back, and more.
The trim level above adds an autohold mode to the electric handbrake, two charging sockets for the rear seat, a floating console with an electronic gear selector, a driving mode selector, integrated synthetic leather upholstery, height adjustment for the passenger seat, and more.
In the higher trim level, the rim size increases from 17 to 18 inches and a panoramic sunroof is added.
The safety systems include automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure correction, vehicle warning in a "dead zone" and the two higher trim levels also added automatic lighting and speed sign recognition.
