Renault Kaptur officially revealed globally

Renault Kaptur officially revealed globally

The Renault Kaptur was officially unveiled at an event in Moscow recently. The five-seater crossover will go on sale in Russia in the coming months and we can expect it to be launched in India in the second half of next year.

Renault Kaptur

The Kaptur is based on the Duster platform and measures 4,333mm in length, 1,813mm in width and 1,613mm in height. Though these dimensions are similar to the Duster, it should be noted that this Kaptur is not the same Captur sold in the European market. Instead of the Clio platform, the new Kaptur unveiled is based on a low cost platform and will be targeted at emerging markets like Brasil and India.

In terms of appearance, the new Kaptur is similar to its Captur sibling but gets a few revisions. The bumpers have been reworked and the car gets a new set of DRLs. The skid plates, ground clearance of 204mm and 16-17-inch rims speak of the car's sporty and aggressive styling.

The cabin is also packed with new features including a seven-inch display for the infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity. The car might also get some unique features like a Remote Engine Start system. The boot space of 387 litres can be expanded to 1,200 litres with its rear seats fully folded.

The engine specifications have not been revealed as of yet. But we can expect it to be powered by a 1.5-litre mill with the option of a manual gearbox or an automatic transmission. There is even the possibility of introducing an all-wheel-drive system in the top-of-the-line variant in India.

Renault has confirmed that they are focusing firmly on the emerging markets with the Duster-based vehicle. The Kaptur is almost similar to the Duster, so it would be interesting to see where the carmaker will slot the vehicle in its line-up. If they price it more than the Duster, then it will compete with the Mahindra XUV500, upcoming Tata Hexa and the Volkswagen Tiguan.
