-Renault Captur BS-VI petrol is expected to be powered by an all-new petrol engine
-The diesel powered variants will be discontinued before 1 April 2020
Renault India has begun testing the BS-VI emission compliant version of the Renault Captur. New spy images shared on the web reveal the BS-VI petrol powered Captur test-mule with emission testing equipment mounted on the posterior of the vehicle.
Renault had previously revealed that the company would discontinue its diesel powertrains ahead of the BS-VI norms that are scheduled to come into effect from 1 April, 2020. Currently, the Renault Captur is powered by a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder petrol motor.
Renault is expected to replace the 1.5-litre petrol engine currently powering the Captur with a 1.0-litre turbo petrol unit or a 1.3-litre turbo petrol unit which powers the Duster in the international markets. Transmission options are likely to include only a five-speed manual gearbox. The BS-VI compliant Renault Captur petrol could arrive early next year.
