Renault Captur second generation: fresh details

March 31, 2018 0 By autotimesnews

Next year Renault will introduce the second generation of the popular crossover Captur. Prior to the premiere is still far away, but the first details about the car appear now.

According to the French portal L’Argus, the novelty will be built on the new modular platform CMF-B, which will also form the basis of the crossover Nissan Juke, and the compact hatchback Clio, whose debut is to be held at the Paris Motor Show this year.

The body of the crossover, according to our colleagues, will slightly increase in size, and its wheelbase will also slightly extend, but there is no precise data on this.

Also there will be serious changes in the range of power plants. The three-cylinder motor with a volume of 0.9 liters will be replaced by a new, liter HR10 engine per 100 horsepower, and the crossover will get a four-cylinder engine HR13 by 140 and 160, depending on the modification. By the way, the second engine was developed in close cooperation with Daimler, and has a proprietary coating of the cylinder walls – the same as that of the Nissan GT-R, which reduces friction and improves heat removal from the pistons.

Diesel scandals bypassed the concern Renaul-Nissan, and the company is not going to abandon this type of engines. This means that Captur will save under the hood a 1.5-liter engine with a payback of 85-115, depending on the version. Also on the basis of this engine will be presented a version with a “soft hybrid”, equipped with a starter-generator.

Presentation of the second generation of the crossover will be held within the framework of the Frankfurt Motor Show, which is traditionally held in September.
