Renault Captur, the long-awaited compact SUV from the French carmaker today finally went on sale in India. The Renault Captur’s price in India starts at ₹ 9.99 lakh, going up to ₹ 13.88 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), for the range-topping Platine diesel variant, which is exclusive to the Indian market. These are introductory prices and will be revised in few months. It’s the second compact SUV from Renault India after the Duster and is based on the same M0 platform as well. Having said that, the Renault Captur is bit more on the premium side in terms of styling, features and equipment and here’s everything you need to know about Renault’s latest offering.

Renault Captur Prices:

Variants Petrol Diesel
RXE ₹ 9.99 Lakh   ₹ 11.39 Lakh
RXL ₹ 11.07 Lakh ₹ 12.47 Lakh
RXT ₹ 11.69 Lakh ₹ 13.09 Lakh
Platine ₹ 13.88 Lakh

The Renault Captur is designed as a crossover using the French car maker’s global design language and has been positioned as a premium offering. India gets the Captur (with a C) moniker, same as the European version, unlike the Russian version that uses ‘K’ in its name. The design is quirky on the compact SUV with the bold grille and diamond logo up front, but looks smart and likeable, and very urban too. While the standard name is Captur, Renault India has added the ‘Platine’ suffix to the top-end variants to differentiate more effectively.

Renault Captur Dimensions:

Renault Captur Dimensions
Length 4329 mm
Wheelbase 2673 mm
Width 1813 mm
Height 1619 mm
Tyre Size 215/60 R17
Boot Volume 392 litres (expandable to 1352 litres)
Ground Clearance 210 mm
Fuel Tank 50 litres

With respect to dimensions, the Renault Captur sits longer than the Duster, but is narrower and shorter than its sibling. The ground clearance though is an impressive 210 mm, much better than the competition. There are other very likeable bits too like the full LED headlamps with the dynamic LED turn indicators. You also get massive C-shaped LED DRLs integrated into the bumper, while the all-LED wraparound taillights get some neat detailing. The SUV rides on 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels on the top trims.

Inside, the Renault Captur looks premium and the materials feel upmarket as well, when compared to the Duster. The cabin is finished in a dual-tone black and white shade with the centre console hosting a large touchscreen infotainment system surrounded by gloss black inserts. The twin-pod instrument console includes a digital display that looks very sharp and futuristic.

On the Platine version, the SUV gets gold and white inserts in the cabin, while the company is also offering a host of personalisation options. While you do get features like auto climate control, navigation, steering mounted controls and more, Renault has missed out on providing Android Auto and Apple CarPlay on its latest offering. Other features include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, Brake Assist as part of the safety kit. Most of these features are standard on the new Captur.

Renault Captur Engine Specifications:

Specifications Petrol Diesel
Displacement 1498 cc 1461 cc
Max Power 104 bhp @ 5600 rpm 108 bhp @ 4000 rpm
Peak Torque 142 Nm @ 4000 rpm 260 Nm @ 1750 rpm
Transmission 5-speed MT 6-speed MT

Under the hood, the Renault Captur uses the 1.5-litre K9k diesel engine that produces 108 bhp at 4000 rpm and peak torque of 240 Nm at 1750 rpm. The 1.5-litre petrol comes loaded with 104 bhp at 5600 rpm and 142 Nm of peak torque at 4000 rpm. Both units get manual transmission only, and while the petrol version gets a 5-speed unit, the diesel model comes mated to a 6-speed unit, just like the Duster. Renault won’t be offering the automatic or AWD option immediately, but do expect the same to be added in the future.

The Renault Duster will operate in a highly competitive space against the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500 among others. The model stands out with its fresh appeal and tried and tested platform, which should bring more buyers to Renault dealers. Bookings for the Captur are already open while deliveries will commence from later this month.
