Our Fleet Test Drive: Renault Captur - 6th report
16 October 2014
While Renault will find it hard to battle Mini for badge prestige, its Captur is bringing the fight to the brand when it comes to residuals.
Our long-termer posts an impressive 41.4% RV after 3yrs/60,000mls, which is even more remarkable when held up against the Countryman One 1.6D 90, which retains 41.8%. It's a testament to strong running cost credentials, with a CO2 of 95g/km easily beating both the Mini and the Peugeot 2008 1.6e-HDi Allure, at 111g/km and 103g/km respectively.
The Renault also has the best cost per mile figure at 37.2p, compared with the Mini and 2008, which sit at 40.3p and 41.2p.
