Post the discontinuation of the Koleos from India last year, the Duster has been Renault’s flagship SUV in the country. Now, the French automaker has introduced a new SUV/crossover, the Captur, which is a premium product compared to the Duster. Here’s what we know about the upcoming Renault Captur so far.

A Quick Recap Of The Captur’s Origins 



Renault Kaptur



The SUV/crossover made its world debut in Russia in April 2016. It is known as the ‘Kaptur’ with a ‘K’ there. It shares its design with the European Captur (Renault Clio-based) and is based on the Duster’s B0 platform, and is meant for developing markets, including India.

After Russia, this Duster-based SUV was revealed for the South American market at the 2016 São Paulo Motor Show in Brazil. It went on sale there in February this year and is known as the ‘Captur’ with a ‘C.’ And now, finally, it will be launched in India before this Diwali!

The highlight at the front is its big ‘C’-shaped daytime running LEDs. The tail lamps also feature ‘C’-shaped LED elements complementing the DRLs at the front.

The cabin is a straight lift from its European counterpart, and hence we have the Captur’s digital+analog instrument cluster.
