“An engine that makes driving Captur a real pleasure, Renault Australia are pleased to be expanding its availability across the Captur automatic range. This punchy engine is worth getting behind the wheel and taking Captur for a spin” says Andrew Moore, Managing Director Renault Australia.
This new engine delivers an impressive torque rating - 250Nm at 1600rpm and incorporates several innovations to deliver better performance
Delta Cylinder Head – a compact shape which saves weight and improves performance
Bore Spray Coating – the cylinders receive a plasma treatment to cut fuel consumption through minimizing friction and reduced weight
Variable Value Timing with Rocker Arm – a new system which generates less internal friction and greater durability
High Pressure Direct Injection and 6-hole vertical injection – the holes provide better atomization of the fuel which is fed in at a higher pressure than the 1.2TCe
Originally launched on the limited edition S-Edition in Q4 2018, this dynamic new engine is now available across all specifications, replacing the 1.2L Turbo.
Captur Zen also receives a multimedia system update which means that both transmissions (manual and auto) now offer smartphone users the opportunity to stay connected through either Apple CarPlay© or Android Auto© replication.
