Be interesting to hear your comparison to the captur although it doesn't sound like the Renault has a good start?

Wife liked the look of the Renault Captur but have bad memories of owning Renault and Peugeot in the past I soon put her of them Evil or Very Mad . Think everything electrical packed in on an Espace I once owned.

I looked at the Renault Captur before I opted for the Vitara. Lack of AWD and more pronounced SUV looks put me off. However I could be tempted by the new Kaptur (with a "K") announced for Russia - AWD plus taller, wider, longer than the Euopean version. One website at least says it is built on Duster underpinnings, but I'm not too sure whether that would be the case.

There are loads of Capturs here in France and a Renault dear on every street corner. Renault is by far the most popular make followed by Citro├źn and Peugeot. I looked at the Captur and the Dacia Duster but wanted 4x4 so no Captur. The Duster had the stupidest system for raising and lowering the drivers seat I have ever come come across, something that happens a lot in my car as wife is short. The engine felt unrefined and was rattley too.
Had the Vitara since December 24th and am still happy with it.

I also looked at the Captur on paper but didn't progress as far as test drive. Although it's had good reviews I've just heard too many reports of electrical problems with French cars, and for them being just awkward to fix anything yourself... although that's a general trend with all manufacturers, the French seem to be ahead of the curve.
