Renault begins production of India-bound Kaptur in Russia

Renault begins production of India-bound Kaptur in Russia

Following its global unveil earlier this year, the Renault Kaptur has gone into production in Russia. The car, in fact, is being made at the French automaker’s Moscow facility. It’s based on the smaller Captur sold in the European markets but has been designed keeping in mind the needs of the Russian car market.

The Kaptur is 4.3-metres long and has a wheelbase of 2.6-meters. Given the road conditions in Russia, it features generous ground clearance of 204mm and approach and departure angles of 20 and 31 degrees respectively.

Now although the exterior design is completely new for us Indians, the interior is reminiscent of other Renault models. The cabin has quite a few elements that we have seen in the India-spec Duster. Standard features on the top-spec model include climate control, touchscreen infotainment system and shift on the fly all-wheel-drive system.

The Kaptur is definitely for the emerging markets. It’s already on sale in Russia and is now headed for markets like India, Indonesia and China. Expect Renault India to slot it above the Duster sometime next year.
