With only 100 units available, Captur Sunset Limited Edition marks official introduction of Turbo Diesel engine derivative to Renault Captur range.

The arrival of Renault’s fun and funky Captur Sunset LimitedEdition Dynamique spearheadsthe introduction of a 1.5 dCi 66kW Turbo Diesel engine option to the range.

“From the outset when first assembling the Captur range, it was always our plan to have a diesel derivative in the line-up and the introduction of the diesel-poweredRenault Captur1.5 litre dCi 66kW Turbo Dynamique model to the current petrol-only product line-up is in direct response to the growing demand for a diesel derivative in this segment,” says Jeff Allison, product manager at Renault SA.

“We believe that now’s the right time to introduce this derivative into a market that understands better than ever before, the importance of the longer-term savings that ultra-fuel efficient engines bring. And what better way to deliver this message than by introducing the bold and very beautiful Renault Captur Sunset Limited Edition Dynamique!”

The diesel-powered Dynamique is the perfect complement to its three petrol-powered siblings in the range: the Dynamique EDC featuring Renault’s new generation 1.2 litre 88kW EDC Turbo power plant, the Dynamique 66kW Turbo and Expression 66kW Turbo.

An easy-to-drive, multi-functional and -faceted crossover that strikes the ideal balance between design and practicality, Renault Captur’s popularity and performance has resulted in the vehicle consistently maintaining second place in South Africa’s popular and highly contested B-segment small utility vehicle (SUV) crossover category.
