Renault Captur Pure special edition introduced in France – IAB Report
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Production limited to a 1,000 units, powered by 110 hp 1.5L dCi motor.
Renault has announced a new special edition for the Captur crossover, powered by a diesel engine.
Called the Pure special edition, it adds unique features like bespoke roof decals and side mirror housings, and a special Cassiopée Grey paintjob with an Etoilé Black roof. Based on the Intens trim, the interior features “Pure” badging, a mix of dark charcoal & smoke grey leather upholstery, a bespoke sill plaque with production number and “Pure” badging.
The crossover also comes with the Techno Pack that adds the R-Link infotainment system and a reversing camera to the package.
The biggest change, however, is the motor under the hood. Unlike the standard Renault that is powered by a 90 hp 1.5-liter dCi engine, the Pure edition gets a more-powerful 1.5-liter dCi engine, producing 110 HP and 260 Nm of torque.
Paired to a six speed manual transmission, it enables the Captur Pure to do the 0-100 km/h sprint in 11.03 seconds (2 sec quicker), before hitting a top speed at 175 km/h. It also returns an impressive fuel mileage of 27.02 km/l and CO2 emissions of just 98 g/km.
Prices for the 2015 Renault Captur Pure special edition (with the dCi 110 motor) start at EUR 25,100 (INR 17.7 Lakhs). Apart from that, they’re also offering the Captur Pure with a dCi 90 engine and EDC gearbox from EUR 25,300 (INR 17.9 Lakhs) and a petrol TCe 120 EDC variant from EUR 23,800 (INR 16.84 Lakhs).
Production is limited to 1000 units, and is available for sale from today.
