Renault has proclaimed that it will launch its Captur SUV in India before the end of the year. The Captur will sit above the Duster in the French builder’s India line-up and is underpinned by the same M0 platform. The Captur is probable to share its powertrain with the Duster as well and will be offered with the same 1.5-litre petrol engine and the 1.5-litre K9K diesel motor. While neither an auto nor a 4×4 version is estimated at launch, they will probably join the range at a later date.

Renault’s SUV will come with full-LED headlight flanked by LED day-time running lights. The crossover’s interior will feature a dual-tone theme and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with media navigation and Bluetooth connectivity. Renault India will also offer various customization options like a contrast roof. The crossover is expected to take on the Hyundai Creta and the Jeep Compass. Renault has also announced that it has crossed a milestone in its India innings by boasting 300 outlets in the country. The brand has just launched ‘Passion on Wheels’, a fully-functional mobile showroom to reach out to the clienteles in minor cities and have them experience the Renault brand.
