The Renault Captur SUV has been unveiled for India with sales to commence in October 2017. The crossover is on sale in 75 countries already and makes its way to the Indian market for the first time. The Renault Captur is designed as a crossover using the automaker’s global design language.
The model is positioned as a premium offering, and hence, the automaker says there is no base variant on the Captur for the Indian market, unlike the the Brazilian and Russian versions. In fact, the other markets also spell the crossover as ‘Kaptur’, while Renault India has opted for the European name. The range-topping trim gets the additional ‘Platine’ suffix.
The Renault Captur measures 4329 mm in length, 1813 mm in width and 1619 mm in height. The crossover is slightly longer than the Duster, while being narrower and shorter. On the other hand, the wheelbase measures 2673 mm, same as the Duster. The model has a ground clearance of 210 mm. It’s a stylish crossover in appearance and looks quite upmarket as well with the Renault family grille upfront, dual-tone alloy wheels and the all-LED headlamps and taillights.
Power on the Renault Captur comes from the same 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel and 1.5-litre petrol engines that is there in the Duster.
