Renault has made its award-winning Captur even more of an attractive proposition with the addition of the highly distinctive Rive Gauche.
Sitting next to the R.S. Line trim at the top of the range, the Rive Gauche stands out from its Captur stablemates with an array of eye-catching design elements, both externally and within its inviting interior. Its elegant style pays homage to its namesake, the special edition’s title coming from the southern bank of the River Seine in Paris with Rive Gauche translating to “left bank” in French.
Only 800 of the Rive Gauche are destined for the UK, the limited production run adding to the special edition’s exclusivity and ensuring it will be highly sought-after by compact SUV buyers.
The Rive Gauche cuts a sophisticated dash with such exterior features as 18-inch glossy black diamond cut alloy wheels, black contrasting roof and wing mirrors, unique black ‘Renault’ and ‘CAPTUR’ badging, and a shark fin antenna. The striking glossy black finish also extends to the front and rear skid plates, front air intake surrounds, and lower door protection, all of which are complemented by metallic paint as standard in either Oyster Grey, Arctic White, Diamond Black or Flame Red.
Inside, the glossy black theme continues with a unique dashboard insert, while there is also a dark roof lining and specific black synthetic leather and cloth upholstery. In addition to the equipment of the S Edition, the Rive Gauche adds wireless phone charging capability and the EASY LINK infotainment system with a 9.3-inch portrait touchscreen.
The Rive Gauche can be specified with a choice of
E-Tech Hybrid 145 or TCe 90 engines. The E-Tech Hybrid 145 complements
the special edition’s style with the efficiency of an electrified
drivetrain. Developed by Renault using technological innovations that
originated in Formula 1 and utilising its vast electric vehicle
expertise, the E-Tech Hybrid 145 works to provide more fun with less
fuel. Twinned with a fully automatic transmission, the 1.6-litre engine
enables a 0-62mph time of 10.6 seconds and returns combined fuel economy
of 57.7mpg (WLTP) with CO
2 emissions of only 112g/km.
