Renualt Crossover Debuts In Qatar

Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co., the exclusive agent for Renault in Qatar, announced the launch of the all-new Renault Captur, the latest from the French renowned automaker, in Qatar. The all-new urban crossover has a powerful presence, offering a unique blend and the best of three different worlds: The expressive styling and driving position of an SUV, the cabin space and modular interior of an MPV and the agility and driving enjoyment of a compact saloon car.

The Renault Captur emerges as a clear segment leader. It not only builds on the tremendous Renault heritage, but it also gives crossover owners a spacious, comfortable and feature-filled interior.


Mr. Declan J. McClusky, GM – Automotive, Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co., said, “Captur crossover is considered one of the best models offered by Renault. It exemplifies the new strategy Renault is implementing and at the same time it draws on the company’s extensive expertise and long lasting history in car manufacturing, which is apparent through its superb design, functionality and the latest in terms of technology. We are greatly pleased to launch Renault Captur in Qatar at the dawn of 2015. We are confident that Captur will be a trend-setter for small crossovers in Qatar.”

Mr. McClusky added, “Renault Captur is expected to be a huge success in the Qatar market. More importantly, it is the only vehicle in the segment that provides customers the option to personalize and distinguish their vehicles to the last bit of detail, from the interior to the exterior. Its compact size with high ground clearance, large wheels and underbody protection allows you to explore all facets of everyday life. If there is one thing commentators agree on when talking about the all new Renault Captur is that it is an urban crossover that people will really notice.”

The Renault Captur interior molds to your personality and surrounds you with a stylish French touch. The continuous shape of the dashboard and the interior panels envelops you like a cocoon. Likewise, the rear passengers enjoy knee room of up to 21.6 cm for maximum comfort. The folding rear bench as well has 3 seats, converts into a flat floor and slides on rails, allowing the Captur’s volume to be adjusted and its passenger compartment arranged to suit all needs.

The brand-new seat design enhances the passenger compartment’s modern look as well. The customizable seat covers are made of soft and comfy fabric available in a variety of colors and five different patterns providing ample possibilities for personal taste and preference.

Built on innovation, it boasts a list of technologies and features to lead the segment. Renault Captur has a regulated air-conditioning system that fits perfectly with the climate and dusty weather in Qatar. The air-conditioning system is fitted with a combined pollen/activated carbon sensor that reduces particulate matter and pollutants from entering the cabin. If a high pollution level is detected, the system automatically shuts the ventilation maintaining a safe and contaminant free air for all passengers.

Renault Captur can also be fitted with a 7″ touchscreen multimedia tablet with voice recognition to control essential functions, enjoying 3D Sound music via audio streaming, Bluetooth, and hands-free telephone system. The Captur’s network-connected multimedia tablet allows you to access contacts and music at all times via the touch screen or the steering wheel-mounted controls. It also provides a new high-tech look and allows the driver to customize the home page with a touch of a finger. The Driving Eco2 program as well makes it easy to control fuel consumption depending on its customized daily advise.

The Renault Captur is also fitted with a parking distance control for an easier driving experience and four rear parking sensors, with reversing camera depending on the version. The camera sends the image to the navigation system screen and displays guidance aids allowing the driver to navigate smoothly around unseen obstacles.

The all-new Renault Captur delivers a strong personality with an original two-tone paint. It offers much greater personalization with its five themed collections: The Ivory Diamond & Black Roof, the Mocha Brown & Ivory Roof, the Arizona Orange &Ivory Roof, the Pacific Blue & Ivory Roof, and last but not least the Diamond Black & Arizona Orange Roof theme that offer as well abundant personalized possibilities according to each customer’s interest.

To make it unique to the last detail, Renault provides its customers the option to choose the trim and level of customization each desires. The Captur is offered in three trims; PE, SE, and the full option LE, which includes on top of the standard options two color exterior paintwork, 17” alloy wheel rims, chrome strip on tailgate, 7” touchscreen, rearview camera, and electric foldable door mirrors.

To top it all, the new urban crossover is crafted to deliver reliability, sturdiness and fuel economy. The Renault Energy petrol engine does not forget the qualities it owes to Formula 1: technology, fuel economy, endurance and outstanding performance. Driving pleasure and fuel economy are the common denominators of Captur’s 100% 1.2L turbo engine. Responsive, lively and agile, it is both powerful and quiet. Likewise, for even greater driving pleasure, it is connected to a 6-speed dual-clutch EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) automatic gearbox.
