Renault’s new flagship in the market, the Captur was launched recently in the market. The European looking Captur is currently facing stiff competition from the vehicles like Mahindra XUV in the market. To boost the sales, Renault has launched a new offer that makes it more accessible to the customers.
Renault is now offering the Captur with an EMI option starting at Rs. 13,999 per month. The manufacturer is also offering up to 85% of funding on the ex-showroom price of the vehicle. Renault also offers a range of customization options and that too can be converted to EMIs of 84 months. The Captur is priced at Rs. 10 lakh, ex-showroom and goes up to Rs. 14.06 lakh.
The 5-seater SUV is based on the B0 platform that also underpins the Duster. The engine and transmission options are also same as the Duster. The car also gets same engine and transmission options as the Duster. The petrol engine is a 1.6-litre unit that produces a maximum of 104 PS and 140 Nm. A 1.5-litre diesel engine is also on offer and it produces a maximum of 110 PS and 240 Nm.
The Indian version of Captur is not similar to the European version as that is based on the Renault Clio platform. The Captur sold in India is similar to the Kaptur that is sold in the Russian market but the European name is used in India.
Both the engine options get a 6-speed manual transmission. Renault plans to launch an automatic version which will not be an AMT as the brand feels that it will not align with the premium offering.
Renault Captur also misses out on the AWD system with the Captur but we may see a version in the future. The offers twin airbags and ABS as standard on all the variants. The features are similar to the Duster but it offers a more premium looks.
