Graham i have to say that you were right THE BEST DRIVE!!!!!! i used mostly the cruise control
managed an average of 57.5 mpg but the most important is that altough we went and come back from Manchester in the same day didnt feel uncomfortable at all !!!
LOVE THIS CAR

Main reason I chose the car apart from looks was the ease of access and comfort of the seats. I was worried that there was not a lumber support option, but you honestly don't need it!!
It"s very confortable to sit many miles in it and my back does not hurt!

i had the same reasons when i choose this car Ythsie as i have big mobililty problem and for me its very important that i didnt feel the need to stop every one hour to get out and stretch like with my old car and yes Tyrfelin is a super great car with super comfy seats !!!!

back from Belgium-France and the only thing i can say is WOWWW
2 days and almost 600 miles and i didnt expect such a smooth and tireless trip and economic.i have to mention that before i got sick i was a taxi driver in Cyprus and i drived all kind of cars but nothing comes close to this as economy and driving style(u can say new technology!)the same trip with my old car cost me £120 with a vauxhall 1.6 auto petrol and i expected the same more or less with captur but i had the shock of my life when i saw that it cost me only £52
.regarding the drive i had it most of the time on cruise control which didnt put a strain on my back and leg.overall i have to say i love it and i cant wait for summer to go on a 2000 miles Euro trip.
Renault Captur rocks!!!!
