Showcased first in Moscow last year, the Renault Captur is currently on sale in Russia (as Kaptur) and a few other South American markets. As Renault is gearing up to launch the Captur in India this festive season, the India-spec SUV’s details have been revealed well in advance.

Underpinning the Duster’s M0 platform, the Renault Captur will be slotted above the Duster in the line-up and will directly rival the Hyundai Creta. The crossover will be offered with a choice of 2 engines – 1.5-litre petrol (also offered on Duster CVT) and 1.5-litre diesel which is offered on the Duster and Terrano, but is expected to get a power bump.

Initially, there won’t be an automatic gearbox offered on both these engines, but at a later date Renault could start offering 4WD as well as an AT gearbox. On the styling front, the Captur will get LED headlamps with LED DRLs and a contrast roof option. The SUV will feature a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and Bluetooth connectivity.
