Feel a bit of a fraud as not technically an owner - yet. I have been lusting after a captur for a few weeks and my 9 year old c max is on its last warning!! The reason for buying a cmax was to fit 2 irish setters in it which it has been perfect for. So my question is will i fit them in a captur - i dont usually have rear passengers so can move the seats right forward. Thought this would be the best place to ask hope you dont mind. I suppose I could take them on the test drive........

I had a 13 plate with 45 m I les on the clock and that included the 23 miles bringing it to me

And like you didn't want to go Orange although it does look stunning

I had petrol
Look for a demo there usually speckled up

Good hunting

welcome diross we have a ford c.max that my wife drives we have two springers so its ideal for that as you know think captur boot might be bit small for two irish setters lovely car that it is, depends how well behaved they are in car and how far you would be traveling with them, hope this helps

your two setters won't fit in the back, in my opinion even i large dog would struggle, the vw touran has loads of space in the back , we had one and our two wolfies fitted in no problem

I also recon that 2 Setters willl be a bit of a squeeze even with the rear seat moved forward. If you fold it flat, it would help.... but then you are down to 2 seats. What about looking at the Megane estate, or a Suzuki SX4-cross if you want the elevated driving position?

Welcome to our community. Its all down to preference and circumstance. I'm retired so wanted away from the fear of breakdown and servicing costs. The dci90 is 0 rated tax low insurance and 65mpg. The Captur is smaller than the Hyundai35, Quashquai, Sportage,but the same size as the Juke and Peugot2008. The Captur has the looks on both of them and lots of standard extras such as Auto lights Auto Wipe stop startand a good selection of media play choices. The four year service, rescue warranty is excellent. The variable, sectioned, sliding seat,boot size (class leading) is very handy for shopping pushchairs and general carry work and the seat covers are washable ones if you want them.
So endeth the Whiteball Renault Captur advertisment.
