My friends often have to hear about how much I (or should I saw “we”?) really REALLY love our car. We’re practically a walking ad as we are VERY happy to tell you how much we love the Renault we bought last year. So you can imagine how my interest was piqued when I heard that the maker Renault has a new car out TODAY!
Thanks to our friends at Soda Communications I attended the launch of the new Renault Captur.
What to wear when you’re testing out a car
When researching a vehicle it’s important that you get to give it a test-run. So what do you wear when you get the chance to test out a car?
- Dress for how you want to move. If I was testing out a car on the weekend; I’d wear jeans with some stretch in them so that I could easily hop in and hop out. However cars need to fit in with your lifestyle so it makes sense to wear *what you normally wear*. To that end Katie and I headed in straight after work and as it was THE launch of the car, we wanted to look a little spiffy too. Sure we could have worn pants but I felt dressier in a skirt and there’s a heap of stretch in the ponte skirt I wore, so I was comfortable hopping in and out of the cars.
- Clean your shoes. When trying out brand new cars they are so shiny and clean that you want to be respectful and not mess them up. To that end the boots I was wearing were still a little dusty from last week’s visit to the Royal Croquet Club so I found myself wishing that I’d given them the wipe-down beforehand. So my little oversight becomes a tip for you!
The Renault Captur: a compact and stylish crossover
And for the car itself? The Captur is kind of a hybrid between the more compact CLiO and sporty Koleos with features like good fuel efficiency, impressively adjustable boot space and interchangeable seat covers – perfect for those of us who live in our vehicles and have the odd spill! On an environmental note the Captur has good fuel efficiency and was manufactured at Renault’s Vlladolid plan in Spain where particularly close attention is paid to product quality and environmental impact; “up to 16% of plastics used in Captur’s production are sourced from recycling” while retaining a rather luxe feel.
The cars also come in some fabulous colours and even two-toned bodywork as Renault hope to contribute to the look of our roads and streets with their vibrant hues. For more details, visit the site.
