My first ever spy shot!

Was descending from Yelagiri yesterday afternoon when I came across this convoy of 4 Capturs going uphill! Road presence is good, however I felt it didn't look as big as the Duster, maybe owing to the latter's boxy shape.

Pardon the poor quality pic, as the convoy had almost passed us by the time my friend pulled out his phone to click!

The Kaptur is scheduled to go on sale during the festive season ahead, and will be pitted directly against the Hyundai Creta.

As for how safe it is (after the Kwid and the Duster NCAP fiascos), let's wait and watch.

This car is being tested heavily on the Chennai - Bangalore route. Saw two of them multiple times in this route. Think the below two pictures is of the same car.

Also saw a Scorpio Getaway undergoing tests, but could not take any pics

The way new launches seem to be showing-up on the 18-25-30L range, I get a feeling that Renault may have to down play the Duster and let Kaptur take its place just on par with Creta. Else I dont see a big play for Kaptur.

I also spotted a heavily camouflaged Scorpio on Saturday while going to Chennai.

With the current NCAP score as also the bad reputation for safety, Renault might quietly discontinue the Duster. A new one is waiting in the wings aborad anyway

I though the one without ABS/Air Bags did poorly but the one with the safety features got respectable/OK score?

Either way, they may eliminate the top variants and keep Duster one segment below the Kaptur.

Even the one with the airbag could not prevent head injury as the size of the air bag has been reduced in the indian version as compared to the international version.

Read in outlookindia today. I am not allowed to post links as of now, hence cannot provide the article link.

Generally Indian consumers prefer stuff like keyless entry, keyless start, automatic wipers, automatic headlamps, etc, etc. So, renault may have thought our brains are smaller requiring a smaller air bag . I even heard members who are on this forum questioning need for ABS and talking about pumping the brake pedal etc...

Totally agree with you on this and nice to know that I am not alone with this thought I am also not able to really understand this "Premium" positioning that every OEM is trying to attempt? This "premiumness" is being done to death

I am hoping post GST Auto companies will really start looking at the 10-15 lac bracket for compact and full size SUV's and not pseudo SUV's and <4m SUV's. This is one bracket I believe has immense disruptive potential.

The Renault Captur, which is manufactured in Brazil, and was recently launched in Latin America markets, had solid four star performance for adult occupant protection and three stars in child occupant protection.

The Captur offers ESC as standard in all versions as well as 4 airbags (2 frontal and 2 side thorax-head type).

I am not sure if this will be relevant to us since the Captur and Kaptur are completely different animals.

The Brazilian Captur is loosely connected to the upcoming Kaptur for India. Why?

Since the Brazilian Captur is built on the Duster platform while the European Captur is on the Clio platform.

And the European Captur scores 5 Stars and the Brazilian one score 4 and any guess for the Indian rating?
