After the success of Renault Duster in the Indian market, Renault has no reason to refrain itself from bringing in its crossover-Renault Captur to India. Based on the fourth generation Renault Clio platform, Captur is all set to be launched in India in 2018.
Captur has been a popular car in the international market as Renault has perfectly blended the ruggedness of an SUV, ease of drivability of a hatchback and generous interior space of an MPV.
GreasePress has already covered about the 2018 Renault Captur coming to India but since the crossover has been appreciated for its interiors in the markets abroad, we could not hold ourselves from digging into the key features of the car’s interiors. After seeing the growing popularity of the MPV segment in India, we can confidently say that, interior design and space is one of the key criteria in influencing a buyer’s decision.
Since, the India specific model is yet to be launched, the exact specifications of Captur’s interiors can be confirmed only after the launch of the vehicle. The specifications mentioned below are based on the international model.
Captur will offer generous interiors space and it sports a family sized cabin with the distance between the accelerator pedal to the rear seatback measuring 1,730mm while the knee room for the rear passengers is 215 mm. The large boot has a capacity ranging between 377dm3 and 455dm3 and with 60/40-split sliding rear bench seat, the car can offer comfortable seating for three passengers. The driver’s seat is comfortably raised to ensure comfortable driving.
The electric, variable power steering is direct and is comfortable to use in city roads and country sides. With a turning circle of 10.8m between kerbs ensures easy maneuverability.
There is also a 3-point Isofix child seat anchorage for the front passenger and two outboard seats with three confirmed seat belts positions for children attached with standard seat belts. We have to wait and see, if the India bound model gets this feature.
The in-dash Renault R-Link multimedia tablet provides a new level of connectivity with a library of dedicated motoring applications.
What would appeal to the Indian market is the removable seat covers that can be unzipped and washed in a machine and refitted.
Besides the removable, zipped seat covers, what makes the car’s interiors unique is the large ‘Easy Life’ drawer but this feature might not be made available for a right hand drive market like India.
Due to these features, Renault Captur has been appreciated for its interiors. While we have discussed about the key features dominating the Captur’s interiors, we have to wait until Renault launches the crossover in India in 2018.
