The upcoming Renault Captur will be positioned right above the Duster and will compete against the likes of the Jeep Compass. The company has already started accepting bookings for the same at a token amount of Rs 25,000. The Captur from Renault will get the same engine option as the Duster. The petrol version will get a 1.5-litre H4K engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission that generates 105bhp of power and 142Nm of torque. The diesel version will get a 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission to generate 109bhp of power and 240Nm of torque. CVT transmission and AWD options will not be offered at the time of its launch and might be introduced at a later date.
