The next-generation Renault Captur has been snapped again by spy photographers, ahead of an anticipated reveal sometime next year.

With the small crossover segment booming worldwide, Renault would be more than keen to put its best foot forward with the Captur, which will be built around the same platform as the next-gen Clio.

It's likely the new Captur will introduce a number of new driver assistance and active safety technologies, something the current model lacks – think autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keep assist, to name a few.

Expect the new Captur to also sport a more upmarket and tech-laden cabin design, incorporating large high-resolution displays.

In terms of the exterior, the Captur will draw inspiration from the company's latest models like the Megane and Koleos, with a massive Renault badge up front attached to a chrome fascia joining the headlights. Slim tail-lights should feature out back, with LED technology available at both ends.

Like the Clio, the Captur should be based on a version of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance's CMF-B architecture, which allows for combustion power and all-electric technology – we could see a Captur EV at some point down the track.

Further to that, we could see mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid options too, as the French brand rolls out its electrification strategy across its line-up.

It's believed the new Captur will make its debut sometime "during the summer of 2019" (northern hemisphere), indicating a third-quarter reveal ahead of a European sales launch towards the end of next year.

Should that prove to be the case, we likely won't see it in Australia until 2020. Stay tuned for all the latest, and click on the images for the full gallery.
