2017 Renault Kaptur spied on test in India before its launch

2017 Renault Kaptur spied on test in India before its launch

A pre-production Renault Kaptur SUV with a full camo wrap was spied testing recently on Indian roads. This will be Renault’s newest premium SUV, which is expected to arrive in showrooms in mid-2017.

The Kaptur test mule spotted seems to be the top-end variant, as it features the large alloy rims, LED indicator integrated OVRMs, rear wiper, projector headlamps etc. These features are already seen on the international-spec Kaptur unveiled in Russia and Brasil. It should be noted that the India-bound Kaptur will be the one based on the Duster's modified MO platform and not the Captur from the European market.

The engine options are expected to be borrowed from the Duster on sale in India. The petrol variant will be powered by the 1.6-litre mill, while the oil-burner will get the 110bhp 1.5-litre K9K diesel motor. Transmission options are also expected to be carried over, which includes the six-speed manual and automatic gearbox. We also expect the carmaker to offer the AWD model in India.

Renault had announced that they will launch five new cars for the Indian market over the coming five years. The new Kaptur will be the first model to be launched this year and will be manufactured at the carmaker's plant in Oragadam. Upon launch, the five-seater SUV will be slotted above the Duster and might be priced in the Rs 14-18 lakh bracket.
