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.

Quote:
the new engine options up to 120 HP 1.6 , connected to a Manual or automatic CVT, and the already known 2.0 with automatic gear in top versions.

Inside, more than bring the design of Renault, the finish is still in hard plastic like the Duster.

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 – a Kaptur with a ‘K’, 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 that’s 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 aren’t what you’d expect on a car in this class.
Quote:
But while comfort on the Kaptur is much better than on the Duster, the boot isn’t 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 doesn’t have the capacity of the Duster’s, 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, there’s enough power and torque to accelerate well. The engine is smooth and there’s plenty of torque in the mid-range, but the four-speed automatic tends to spoil the experience. I’d 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 it’s 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.

Default Re: Renault teases Kaptur CUV; could be launched in India

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?)
