India-bound 2021 Renault Captur breaks cover: What has changed?
French automaker Renault has pulled the covers off the 2021 edition of its compact SUV, the Captur, for the Russian market. Titled as the Kaptur in Russia, the facelifted model comes with a bunch of design updates, some feature add-ons, and a new petrol engine. Reportedly, the compact SUV will hit the Indian roads sometime later this year or in early-2021. Here's more.
A look at the 2021 Renault Captur
The 2021 Renault CAPTUR retains the shape of the outgoing model but comes with an updated front fascia featuring a new chrome grille with mounted company's emblem, and an updated bumper. The car sports an impressive side profile with a new set of alloy wheels, indicator-mounted ORVMs, and blacked-out wheel arches as well as side claddings.
Inside the cabin
The 2021 Renault Captur comes with an updated five-seater cabin with blue-colored accents on the seats as well as dashboard, and an updated multifunctional steering wheel. The company has not revealed the features of the facelifted model yet, but just like the outgoing model, it will also offer a touchscreen infotainment panel with connectivity features, automatic climate control, and driver and passenger airbags.
Power and performance
The 2021 Renault Captur draws power from a 1.3-liter turbo-petrol engine that the company has developed in partnership with the luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz. This motor will come equipped with an automatic CVT system and is likely to produce 150PS of maximum power.
And, when will it arrive in India?
The 2021 Renault Captur is likely to be launched in India sometime in early-2021. As for the pocket-pinch, it will carry a slight premium over the outgoing model that falls under Rs. 9.5-13 lakh price bracket in the country. Once launched, it will take on the likes of MG Hector, Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks, and Hyundai Creta.
