I could almost see myself buying a new car at this price though it's still way more than double what I can imagine realistically end up paying. I look at cars like this to see what I'll likely own in 5 or 6 years, hope whoever has my future car is looking after it

It`s not about the size of the engine it`s the bhp . A formula one car is only 1.6 litres . This would be fine as a city car

Waiting for 0.5l version... Wtf wrong with people, I can understand 0.9l for some small box on wheels but this?
They're all so desperate to shift metal at the moment that they're practically giving them away. Imminent plant closure announcements are almost a racing certainty now.

Going to be lots of discounts on the 2019 version with the new model round the corner.

Ideal for towing my caravan


The type of car that you need to turn the "climate control" off when going uphill.
Fair price, marmite car and high deprecation normal but offset by lower initial cost
I've driven this exact model.

Coming from a Fiesta ST, the power wasn't comparable. However, it was powerful enough with three people in to get around. Also handled the motorway fine without labouring the engine at 70mph.

It did bog down a little, but when you get in 2nd gear, the turbo kicks in and moves the car a bit quicker. It does suffer with the usual 3 cylinder problems such as turbo lag. The revs also don't drop off that quickly when engine braking.

All in all, for the money its fairly decent. Nothing special, but would do a small family nicely.

If I was in the market for buying another brand new car I'd be looking for something to run until it dies, as with the increase of hybrids and EVs depreciation will be huge on cars like this. That and moves to more subscription based motoring.

Or I'd lease and remove the risk.

I really hope that's true
Thing is after an F1 race they strip the engine down then throw some bits away. Small engine means reasonably ok around town for the retail therapy experience where average speed rarely tops 30 mph but regular A road or motorway work will soon see those 900cc 's worked hard enough to age the engine prematurely. Fiesta 950 back in the day,low tuned 4 cylinder granny car passed on later to rabid spotty 17 year old youf often rusted to death before it could be planted into a ditch on a bend one Saturday night,now fitted with all the bells and whistles that sell the car experience you can buy ,a rust proof highly tuned disposable motor on pcp or some other finance that will be worth nothing before you've made the last payment.
As an ex-GM of a large car supermarket, I've seen and sold a few cars. Was never a fan of Renault but this is a great car at a great price.

So I've got one of these for my wife and we both love it. I drive a lot of other cars in the same class and it's a relief when I get a Captur.

As for the power, we don't do many motorway miles and yep, there's a bit of turbo lag but we aren't into spanking it so the power suits us just fine. We are averaging 42.2 mpg mostly around urban areas.

If I had the choice, I'd buy it again at this price.

I had a Suzuki hire car abroad, and turning it off felt like it doubled the power on hills!!

Yes, but an F1 car is driven to the very limit of its ability. I know these rev at around 3000RPM doing 70mph. I would also hope people are shifting gears a long way before the red line. On the motorway, you're also not constantly changing speed and the level of throttle. You do get a guaranteed minimum value with a PCP too.
We owned a Captur, the 0.9L engine is so heavily fuel injected that it drinks fuel, Had to drive the car in eco mode all the time. Couldn't wait to get rid of it!
Owned one for about two years but wife drove it mainly. It was faultless though. Great in town, fine on the motorway. Very practical with sliding rear seat bench. People like to crap on french cars and SUV's, but they're living in the past.

You'd be mad to buy a used French car IMO. Unless you're an electrical whizz.....

That's not correct. It is about size, weight, aerodynamics, drivetrain etc of the car, not just bhp. 0.9 liter is okay as long as you only go shopping with the car in the city with 1 passenger.

Is this really right because it'd be completely contrary to the eco image and reported mpg stats??
I get they are creating low engines for tax reasons and then throw a small turbo on, however this is the same engine we had in the new Micra. I have to say even in that it was not great, if you are using it for 30-40 around town it's ok, anything more is a struggle.

Every new car is taxed the same, so that really isn't the reason.

Everywhere in UK you have speed cams traffic control and another ridicules limits so here is not like in Germany that you can drive 200 miles per hour. So what the point is to by 5liters engine?
Wow in the specs it lists ... Brakes! I these day’s never buy a car without them!!!! Voted cold as french and will fall apart in weeks of use
New one looks alot nicer and alot more modern especially the interior. My wife wants one of these but even though this is 5k cheaper than the new model I think we'll wait for that.

Larger engines help compensate for a small "package". Many Audi and BMW drivers can attest to this.

Used to drive one of these it was dreadful, cheap interior and under powered ended calling it a Crapture.

I think that most people with issues around SUVs (especially in town) are concerned about the planet's future. Not living in the past, but in fact, the very opposite.

French cars are fun, but better leased than owned (I'd say the same about permium German cars too. IMO, if you want to own a car, buy a Honda....)
