Scoop: Exclusive Details On The Upcoming Renault Kaptur

Renaut Kaptur India

Renault is expected to launch its next SUV, the Kaptur, by October this year. Sharing a lot in common with the Duster (underpinnings), the Kaptur will take on the segment leader Hyundai Creta. Infact the company has started feedback sessions from current Duster owners – this is happening at the Expo center in Greater Noida.

Thanks to Nitesh Sharma for the following info. This is what he shared with us yesterday:

  • Its a proper 5-seater
  • Top end model gets keyless entry with start-stop
  • The top end version will be priced just over the Creta.
  • Fixed armrest up front without the inner compartment
  • 6-speed manual is standard
  • Old school type fuel meter
  • Ground clearance stands at 215 mm
  • Average sound proofing (same as Duster)
  • LED fog lamps up front
  • No water bottle holders at the rear
  • Cooled glovebox
  • Cruise control available in top-end
  • Boot space similar to that of S-Cross (looks visually similar too)
  • Looks a lot like the GLA from the side
  • Tyre size is 215/60 R17

The Renault Kaptur will come with two engine options of a 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel. More details soon!
