The Renault Kaptur (codenamed HHA) has been imported from Russia for testing purposes and is expected to launch in the Indian Market in October 2017. The 5 -eater crossover is based on the Duster’s MO platform, and it will be equipped with four-wheel-drive too. It seems like a very important car and will give Renault a chance to consolidate its foothold in India.

Quite identical to the European hatchback Captur, in terms of the name and exterior, the car comes with a few styling tweaks, larger dimensions and tons of features. The Kaptur is 4333 mm long, 1813 mm wide, 1613 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2674 mm. It has a boot space of 387-litres which can further be extended to 1200-litres.

Coming to the exterior, the bold Renault logo and the grille with a new honeycomb mesh pattern gives it an aggressive look and is enough to intimidate anyone. The front bumper is muscular and is integrated with mean looking C-shaped DRLs.  At the rear, it flaunts its 3D-effect LED tail lights and also the skid plates on the bumper.

The interior comes with a Media Nav 7-inch touchscreen, keyless entry (all variants) and a heated windscreen. In the Russian market, the Kaptur is available with two engine options (petrol) – 1.6-litre producing 114 HP and 2.0-litre producing 143 HP. The Indian market is likely to be offered with the K9K 1.5-litre diesel engine and the 1.6-litre petrol engine.
