2017 Renault Captur SUV to launch in India on November 6
Renault is all set to launch the Captur SUV in India on November 6, 2017. Renault dealerships across the country had already started accepting bookings for the Captur SUV from September 22 onwards for a token amount of Rs 25,000. While there is no official word from Renault on the delivery timelines, we believe it should happen in the end week of November.
We like the aggressive front design of the 2017 Renault
The 2017 Renault Captur is based on the Duster's B0 platform. However, the French automobile manufacturer will position it above the Renault Duster in India. The premium SUV that arrives soon in India will rival the likes of the Hyundai Creta and the Mahindra XUV500. We also believe that if the price difference between the Captur and the Duster is substantial, it will also compete with the recently launched Jeep Compass. Renault India has already initiated its teaser campaign for the 2017 Captur in India. The 2017 Renault Captur gets full LED headlamps with DRLs.
The more premium variants of the 2017 Renault Captur features beige and black upholstery
The interior gets a choice between two-tone look or an all-black theme like the Russian model. A 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity and navigation might be on offer as well. The Captur measures 18mm longer than the Duster and will be offered in a 5-seater configuration. The rear bench can be folded down in 60/40 ratio, which will expand the 387-litre boot to 1,200 litres. The 2017 Renault Captur has a ground clearance of 204mm.
Look at the 2017 Renault Captur from any angle and it looks muscular and well proportionate
The Renault Captur SUV will arrive in India in both petrol and diesel engines. The diesel model will use the 1.5-litre dCI unit that already does duty in the Duster SUV that puts out 110PS and 240Nm. This motor is paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The petrol Renault Captur will use a new 1.5-litre unit that produced 106PS/142Nm and comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
