Comments

Control of Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) is good or adequate in all of the tests, including the severe cold ambient temperature and high-load highway tests. However, values of the unregulated pollutant ammonia, NH3, is in general weak or poor. In the road tests, performance was generally good but control of particulate number was not as good as that of other pollutants.

Comments

With an average consumption of 6.6 l/100 km, the Captur performs well for energy efficiency and leads to a very creditable index of 5.3 in this part of the assessment.

Comments

The Captur displays good control of Methane and of Nitrous Oxide (N2O), a greenhouse gas that is not regulated by legislation. CO2 is elevated in the cold ambient test and the high-load highway test but, in general, the vehicle performs well.

Our verdict

A new Captur was launched in late 2019. The version tested here is the previous car, a facelifted version of the car originally released in 2013. The updated car has similar emissions control equipment and would be expected to show similar results to the test vehicle. The Captur scores an impressive three stars overall, with well-balanced performance in the three areas of assessment: control of pollutant emissions, energy efficiency and its limitation of greenhouse gases. A three-way catalyst and a gasoline particulate filter (GPF) contribute to robust performance all-round.
