Default Renault Captur vs Jeep Renegade

Looks as if Captur will shortly see a new mate in the sandbox, this one goes by the name of Jeep Renegade. The diminutive Jeep was birthed on the back of the FIAT 500L much like the Capturs relation to the Clio. See then the Americans went a stuck a bunch of bits on for fording puddles and assaulting curbs. Considering the segment is dominated currently by mostly soft-roaders the Jeep with its promise of sand bashing pleasure may just have a leg up. Regardless shall we see how the two will get along?

Lets start with the motivation. Both the Captur and Renegade are available with a selection of diesel and petrol power plants.



TCe 900cc Stop/Start Inline Three Cylinder: 90 hp@ 5250 RPM/100 lb-ft @ 2000 RPM

TCe 1.2L Inline Four Cylinder: 116 hp @ 4000 RPM/162 lb-ft @ 1750 RPM


dCi 90 1.5L Turbo Stop/Start Inline Four Cylinder: 90 hp @ 4000 rpm/162 lb-ft @ 1750 RPM

All Captur Engine Choices are available with a DCT or Manual Gearbox



1.6L Tritec Inline Four Cylinder: 108 hp @ 5,500 RPM/ 112 ft-lbs @ 4500 RPM

1.4L MultiAir Inline Four Cylinder: 138 hp@ 5000 RPM/170 ft-lbs @ 1750 RPM

1.4L MultiAir Turbo Inline Four Cylinder: 168 hp @ 5,500 RPM/184 ft-lbs @ 2,500 RPM

2.4L Tigershark Inline Four Cylinder: 184 hp @ 6400 RPM/177 @ 4400 RPM


1.6L MultiJet II Inline Four TurboDeisel: 118 hp @ 4000 RPM/236 ft-lbs @ 1750 RPM

2.0L MultiJet II Inline Four TurboDiesel: 138 hp @ 3750 RPM/258 lb-ft @ 1500 RPM

The Renegade will offer shoppers a choice of 5 (1.6 Tritec) or 6 speed manual (1.4 Petrol, 1.4T, 1.6 Diesel, 2.0 Diesel) gearboxes, a 9 speed ZF automatic (1.4 Turbo, 2.0 Diesel, 2.4 Petrol)


Next lets look at how the two will stack up dimensionally....



Wheelbase: 2606 mm
Length: 4122 mm
Width: 1770 mm
Height: 1566.1 mm


Wheelbase: 2570.48 mm
Length: 4231.64 mm
Width: 1803.4 mm
Height: 1689.1 mm

While I know this is not the full breadth of comparison for these two vehicles they offer such similar offers that ultimately it will come down to one of two factors. Price and Prowess. Captur is attractively priced in segment with a base price of 14,495, so Renegade will need to either match that or offer a ton of included kit. The second factor is prowess, Captur is not offered with an AWD system what so ever, Jeep brings legendary capability. The single question remaining is will that matter to European shoppers?

no contest.
The Jeep looks like a box.

The jeep and the captur are not even in the same genre.

The Captur is stylish and economical.

The Jeep is NOT.

Why would anyone looking at the Captur want a Jeep. There are plenty of alternative crossovers on the market, but the Jeep is NOT one of them.

I rather stay away from american brands they are know to have poor build quality and just be crappy cars. Renault is a brand where I rather spend my money at.
