There is still no official data on the technical specifications of the Captur Mercosur could have known engines 1.6 and 2.0 of the Duster. Also the double traction. And the automatic transmission, which is sold with the Duster in Brazil, but not yet reached the Argentina

Renault's next launch in Argentina,based on the duster platform the CapturcMercosur / Kaptur offers more interior space and a lower production cost.

Quote:
The Captur Mercosur will be positioned in price above the Duster SUV to compete against more modern design on the market: Honda HR-V, Peugeot 2008, Hyundai and Jeep Renegade among others.

The interior and especially the dash still looks like something suitable for a Kwid. The gear lever is placed almost on the floor and there is nothing around it.(based on the interior shot in previous page).
Are there any good interior pictures for this ?

The India-bound Kaptur on display at the Bogota Auto Show.

Among other things, we now have a clear look at the interiors and the boot space.

Also, 4 colour shades on display - White, Silver, Orange & Red.

The Kaptur will be launched by Renault India sometime in H2 2017.

This is the Captur with a C and not with a K.

The Captur is based on a Clio is like an Ecosport and a more premium offering.

What India will get is a larger Kaptur which is based on the Duster platform. It won't be as premium with lesser kit but larger size and will carry over the old 1.5 dCi engine as well.

No this indeed is the Duster-based model, its only called Kaptur in Russia. In Brazil it uses the 'C'. Please note the foglamp on the car which is a clear giveway and the dashboard.

Wow they have really made it confusing. Thanks Shrawan, I had no idea on the Russian Captur and the Kaptur.

Now that you mentioned it from the pics this Captur looks much larger than the Clio based one.

Nonetheless, this seems like a very promising crossover to go against the Creta.

ACI reviews the India bound Kaptur in Moscow,

Renault, being Renault, has gone for a wholly different answer to a similar question Ė a Kaptur with a ĎKí, as kookie as that sounds. Yes, the Kaptur looks similar from the outside and the insides have more or less the same layout too, but unlike its European cousin thatís built around a compact hatchback, this one shares its platform with the more robust Duster. Made for emerging markets such as ours, it is wider on the inside, longer, several times tougher and, importantly, comes with a more affordable sticker price. So while the Captur had no hope of succeeding in our emerging markets, the Kaptur has the potential to ace it.
Differentiates from the Duster!
Quote:
just how modern and sophisticated it feels. The wrap around the dash is nicely curved and devoid of extraneous details, and Renault designers have used self-contained pods that house the vents, instrument panel and centre console. What I also notice straight up is that quality levels, in general, are way above those of the Duster, so the cabin feels like a clean break from the past. What spoils this feeling of freshness somewhat, however, is that there are one too many legacy parts in here. Bits like the vents, steering wheel, touchscreen, air-con controls and four-wheel-drive selector are clearly carried over from the Duster, and the quality of some plastic parts in the lower part of the dash arenít what youíd expect on a car in this class.
Quote:
But while comfort on the Kaptur is much better than on the Duster, the boot isnít as large. Yes, Renault has added cladding to the insides and made it more streamlined, making it easier to slide big bags in, but at 387 litres, it doesnít have the capacity of the Dusterís, which holds 475 litres
Quote:
Performance using the 2.0-litre petrol unit is also quite sufficient. This SUV weighs around 1.4 tonnes and with 143hp, thereís enough power and torque to accelerate well. The engine is smooth and thereís plenty of torque in the mid-range, but the four-speed automatic tends to spoil the experience. Iíd stick to the 110hp 1.5 DCi diesel that the car is expected to come to India with. The Kaptur is only 5kg heavier than the Duster and with shorter gearing and the strong 245Nm of torque, it should have more than sufficient performance on hand. Still, if you have to buy a petrol, make sure itís a manual.

Basing it on the Duster underpinnings seems like a good move. Firstly the car for India is then bigger cause when i saw the european versions on display it seemed no bigger than like a Brezza. Second, they will be able to keep the prices down and probably have significant amount of localization from the word go i think. And the Duster is a pretty capable machine already so a fresh wrap around it is a nice idea.

But basically then, we should stop linking this car to Captur cause they are totally different cars. What Renault is giving is a Duster with new clothes that has only a fleeting similarity to how the Captur looks.

Just an observation: Why does a turbo petrol have to be 1998cc for 140bhp and why is the torque peaking at 4000rpm (fairly useless, actually, for this segment) ?

Seems like a variable valve timed NA engine specs! Must be a typo, then, who has the real India bound figures?

This probably means the Megane wont come, as there has been a paradigm shift in the choice of car body type in the Indian minds. (OT: Which was the "last" proper sedan launched in India, which was NOT a facelift? Ciaz?)

Renault starts testing the KAPTUR in India. Code named HHA the launch can be expected in late 2017/2018.

Will be a segment above Duster and will rival top end variants of Hyundai's Creta and Honda BR-V.
Quote:
Under its hood would be the familiar 1.5-liter dCi four-cylinder diesel engine, with outputs around 110 PS and 245 Nm of torque, paired with a 6-speed manual or automatic gearboxes. Since it will be pitched as a premium offering, Renault could equip the smoother and quicker EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) gearbox instead of the low-cost Easy-R automated manual transmission (AMT) from the Duster. An AWD system is also likely to be offered in the range-topping variant.
Parts for proto/production imported from Brazil

I don't see how the Kaptur can pull off this positioning. The Top end variants of the Creta cost around 17 Lakhs OTR and if the Kaptur is going to be in that territory it's set for failure. What Renault should do is do restrict the Duster to only the 85bhp variant and bring down the prices marginally and may be knock off the top end variants. Just have 3 variants at best and then get the Kaptur to be positioned between 12-17 lakhs.

In fact at the moment, the Creta comes across as more VFM than the Duster. My close friend was in the market to buy a car for around 10-12 lakhs and my recommendation was to buy the Duster, then we checked variant to variant and found that the RXL 85 bhp comes with only driver airbag which was weird because my Dad bought the same variant last year and it had 2 airbags. And this variant costs nearly 12 lakhs. When we checked the Creta's base variant it came with 2 airbags and ABS ( 1.4 diesel) and it was just under 12 lakhs. So my friend went and booked the Creta instead of the Duster.

The point is that Renault is losing the plot with the Duster and cannot continue to position it against the Creta which is much more modern and looks mor premium. Although there is no comparison to the way the Duster rides, that's not something everyone realises.

Too soon to write an obituary of a yet to be launched car. No?
The Kaptur looks way more pemium than the Duster inside out and should come up with better features and equipment. Add to that the traditional strengths of the Duster like a tough and abuse friendly build quality plus excellent ride quality, and the Kaptur sounds to me like a great package which has the ability to take on the Creta head on.

Why do you think the Kaptur is not a capable rival to the Creta?

The earlier post stated that Kaptur will rival top end variants of the Creta, which meant that it would have a starting price range of 16 lakhs and most likely to be slightly more expensive than the Creta. My opinion is that the Kaptur has to priced similar to the Creta to make any impact and not more.
