Renault Captur to be launched in India this year, it's official

Renault Captur to be launched in India this year, it's official

Renault India has officially announced the launch of the new Captur in India this year. The French carmaker has been testing the new crossover in the country extensively. The upcoming festive season seems to be the most viable opportunity for Renault to bring in the crossover.

The Captur will slot in above the ageing Duster in Renault India’s line-up and is expected to be priced between Rs 14 lakhs to Rs 18 lakhs. It will target  D-Segment vehicles like the recently launched Jeep Compass, and the existing sedans like the Hyundai Elantra and Toyota Corolla. Being a premium product, the Captur will go on to become the new flagship offering by Renault in India.

The Captur is a five-seater that gets the latest Renault signature fascia. The design language on the grille with horizontal slats and a chrome-lined lower half is carried over from the other Renaults. The headlamps sweep back on the contoured front and the air dam gets its lower half blacked out with horizontal slats for a sporty look. It will also get projector headlamps and bumper mounted LED DRLs in India. Being a crossover, the body cladding gets slightly flared wheel arches. The rear is simple but contoured with LED tail lamps and the lower half of the bumper is blacked out.

It will be as spacious on the inside as the Duster. The Captur will come fully loaded with all the necessary features expected in that segment. As for the engines, there will be a 1.5-litre dCi turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine powering the front wheels. The 1.5-litre mill offered with the Duster comes in two states of tune – 84bhp and 108bhp and it will most probably be the same on the Captur along with the five and six-speed transmission. The petrol mill will be the 1.6-litre 102bhp four-cylinder engine, also from the Duster. There is also a fair chance of the Captur getting AWD like the Duster.

Renault also announced the milestone of having established 300 dealership outlets in the country. Renault ensures that the new Captur will provide a fair degree of customisation to suit the Indian customers. 

Commenting on the occasion, Sumit Sawhney, CEO and managing director, Renault India, said, “India is an important market for Renault’s global growth plans and we have a thorough business strategy to grow our presence across the country. This is reflected by our strong product strategy, our rapid network expansion and fervent efforts to ensure customer delight. We have expanded our product portfolio to best suit the Indian customer, focusing on new and emerging segments to drive volumes. The SUV segment, which is amongst the fastest growing segments of the Indian automobile industry, has witnessed increasing customer attention due to styling and design elements which are playing an important role in the purchase decision.”
