Here's a popular crossover you probably forgot about: the Renault Captur. The French company's subcompact model is going under the knife, with the facelifted iteration being around the corner.
We suspected it was due sometime this year, and now we know exactly when. According to the diamond brand, the facelifted 2024 Renault Captur is due next week. The unveiling will be streamed over the web and translated into four languages (French, Italian, German, and Spanish – besides English) and will start on Thursday, April 4, 2024, at 8:30 AM GMT (9:30 AM CET/4:30 AM EST).

Besides announcing when it is due and who will host the press conference, Renault hasn't said anything else about the upcoming Captur. However, we know a lot about it courtesy of the spy shots and a few patent design images, and that is similar to other fresh high-riders that can be found in the automaker's portfolio, looking more modern than the outgoing iteration.

It has a flatter nose with a discreet grille flanked by slim headlamps, new DRLs placed below the main clusters, and a wider air intake in the middle of the bumper. The front and rear overhangs are about as long, and the roofline is just as arched as before. The back end is very similar to the current one. Its future customers should also look forward to fresh paint finishes and new wheels.

We have yet to see the interior, but it should revolve around a 9.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 10.2-inch digital gauge cluster. It is also unknown whether high-end trim levels will employ softer materials on the dashboard, whereas lower-spec ones will feature hard plastics, like on the outgoing Captur. It is also possible that it will feature more advanced active and passive safety gear, as Renault likely targets a 5-star EuroNCAP rating.

Reports speak about a three-pot powering the entry-level grade, and it is also possible that the French car manufacturer will give it a few partially-electrified assemblies, including plug-in hybrids. And while some automakers, like Volvo, have completely ditched the oil burners, Renault isn't ready for that yet. As a result, the upcoming Captur is expected to feature at least one diesel, perhaps in different states of tune.

When it goes on sale in Europe, likely in the coming months, the 2024 Renault Captur will continue to take on other subcompact crossovers, like the Skoda Kamiq, Volkswagen T-Cross, Ford Puma, Peugeot 2008, Opel/Vauxhall Mokka, and others. We will keep an eye open for any possible leaks before the car's premiere, and we will also be covering the unveiling event, so stay tuned for possible updates.

Would you have wanted the Renault Captur in America as an alternative to the Honda HR-V, Chevrolet Trax, Buick Envista, and Nissan Kicks?
