Now that the Koleos and Fluence have been axed, the upcoming Captur will be the most expensive vehicle in Renault India’s lineup.
Renault has been constantly teasing its upcoming Captur SUV. Originally scheduled to arrive around Diwali, 2017, the Captur’s launch was delayed due to reasons best known to Renault.
However, the French company has now made it official that the Captur will launch on November 6, 2016. Bookings for the SUV were opened in late September for a token amount of Rs. 25,000.
The India-spec Captur, unlike the European model, is based on the Duster’s B0 platform. It will be positioned in the Indian market as a premium alternative to the Duster, to compete better with the Hyundai Creta. The top-end Platine variant of the Captur is India specific, and will bring along with it some premium touches like flowing LED turn signals, LED DRLs, 17-inch alloys and much more.
Powering the Captur will be a duo of familiar 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines from the Duster. Automatic transmission won’t be available at launch, however, it could be added to the Captur’s lineup sometime in 2018.
