Renault Captur (2013-present)

J-segment is the European segments for passenger cars described as "sport utility cars (including off-road vehicles)".[1][2][3] It covers a broad category of vehicles ranging from crossovers (based on a passenger car platform), sports utility vehicles (based on a light truck platform) and off-road vehicles.[4]

Sales in the segment are currently increasing each year in Europe. In 2015, J-segment became the highest selling segment, with 28% market share.[citation needed]

CharacteristicsEdit

The vehicles covered by J-segment developed from early utilitarian off-road vehicles, however in recent years the majority of J-segment vehicles are based on passenger car platforms and often have limited off-road capability.

Vehicle sizes range from superminis (B-segment) to large luxury cars (F-segment).
