BENGALURU: Talks about the stylish compact crossover, Kaptur, are once again resurfacing the motor-head factions, after Renault unveiling the car’s first looks in Moscow, recently. The Captur concept (Europe and American markets) was first made public, when the French automaker introduced it at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Targeted at emerging markets like India and Russia, the Renault Kaptur will take its base from the Duster platform, reports onedrive.com. It is expected to be launched in Russia around June-August 2016, and will hit the Indian markets by mid-2017.



Design



The Kaptur bears striking resemblance to Captur, with the exception of a mesh-type honeycomb grille, remodeled front bumpers that will sport the new C-shaped LED DRLs (Daytime Running Lights) and LED taillights, according to oncars.in. The Kaptur will carry the following dimensions: 4333mm length, 1613mm in height, 1813mm in width, and a ground clearance of 204mm. With a boot space capacity of 387 liters, it can be increased to 1200 liters by folding the rear seats. The Kaptur has a sleek-design with a floating roof design and blackened side pillars.



Interiors and Features



A stylish dashboard that includes a 7-inch touch screen infotainment system, which comes with complete connectivity features like Bluetooth and satellite navigation systems. The instrument cluster gets a new look along with a centrally placed multi-information display. Renault has also revealed that the top spec variant would have automatic climate control systems.



Engine



On the subject of its engine capacity, Renault has still kept us in the dark, and no technical specifications have been revealed yet. Although, it is believed that the Renault Kaptur will be powered by 1.6- and 2.0-liter flex-fuel engines. This is in conjunction with the international specifications and the Indian version might haul powertrain options similar to that of Renault Duster with tweaked performance numbers.



Price



No official quote has been made about the Kaptur’s tag price, but being a premium edition, it could be slightly on top of the Duster’s pricing range. In India, Renault will be manufacturing these SUV beasts at the Renault-Nissan plant in Oragadam, Chennai.
