Nicholas thinks the Captur is the Chameleon in the City

Nicholas believes that sensibility does not need to be compromised for style in the Captur
Change is a constant, especially in a fast-moving and rapidly changing environment like ours. The 'one-size-fits-all' strategy is much less effective than it was before.

Hence, a car has to be versatile to make itself more desirable, with an ability to take on different forms to suit different tastes and preferences.

Like a chameleon that changes its skin colour to blend into the environment, a dual-tone paintwork allows mix-and-match of colour combination that is best to your liking. Only the Renault Captur offers this option.

I'm not saying the Captur is anything 'out-of-this-world'. In fact, it's easy to tell which car has a more agreeable styling when parked side by side.

There's a fine line between being appealing and attention-grabbing. The latter happens when you get leaves between your teeth. Hence, instead of being oddly attractive (in the case of the Citroen C4 Cactus' rather peculiar design), the Captur charms with a styling that is distinct, yet easy-on-the-eye. This means you will be spared from never-ending questions of "what car is this?"

The drivetrain is where the Captur chooses to be unconventional. Unlike others (including the C4 Cactus), the Captur is powered by a turbodiesel engine, which translates into better performance yet is more frugal at the pumps. That, literally, is the best of both worlds.

For cosmopolites like you and me, the Captur is better at personifying the sharp and smart character that we desire.
