The Renault Captur SUV now features a new R.S- Line flagship with a sports-style aero-blade bumper as well as 18-inch alloy wheels


The second-generation Renault Captur has had a sports-flavoured variant called the RS-Line join the range in Australia, priced at $39,590 before on-road costs. 

Intended to be more of an aesthetic makeover than an actual Captur sports model, the RS-Line includes design elements such as 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, a Formula One inspired front aero-blade, dual chrome exhaust tips, gunmetal-grey trim, front and rear skid plates, and RS-Line badging. 

Inside, chrome RS-Line door sills, carbon-look interior trim, alloy sport pedals, and red and grey stitching all distinguish the RS-Line.
