Pune: French auto maker Renault unveiled its globally successful premium SUV with crossover DNA Renault Captur on Monday. Built on the globally successful B0 platform, Renault Captur has been designed and developed leveraging the prowess of Renault India and global teams. Renault has commenced the production of Captur and is preparing for a festive season launch, with bookings open from September 22 on the Renault Captur App and Renault India website at an initial booking amount of Rs 25,000.
Over the last 5 years, Renault has taken significant steps to grow its presence in India, enabled by a progressive strategy across its corporate, product and network fronts. The launch of Renault Captur is a significant step in Renault’s growth journey in India. Renault Captur exemplifies Renault’s product strategy for India, which is to launch products that create a unique vehicle class, while ticking all the right boxes in terms of design, features, technology and value.
Speaking at the unveiling, Sumit Sawhney, Country CEO and Managing Director, Renault India Operations, said, “Our growth strategy hinges strongly on launching products that cater to the volume and growing segments of the Indian automotive industry, representing evolving customer preferences. Over the last few years, SUV sales are growing exponentially, making it the fastest growing segment in India. Renault Captur is a globally successful premium SUV and is widely acclaimed for its stunning expressive design, premium and class-leading features and the high levels of personalisation that can be achieved with this car. Renault Captur will further strengthen our position in the fast growing SUV segment and will set new benchmarks with its global styling and unmatched road presence.”
Designed to inspire, Renault Captur has a stunning crossover French design clearly reflecting Renault’s new design DNA. With a design language that is strongly agile and powerfully expressive, Renault Captur brings forth the best from the world of Renault in terms of style and designing, in line with Renault’s recent product introductions in India.
Together with its global styling cues, the designing of Renault Captur also accounts for Indian conditions and consumers’ preferences, offering the widest and longest in its category, with best-in-class ground clearance of 210 mm (unladen). This is well matched by an elevated driving position that offers wraparound panoramic visibility, which sets a new benchmark for comfort.
Renault Captur’s expressive design is accentuated by its Innovative Lighting Systems (ILS). Combining iconic design with cutting edge technology, Renault Captur’s lights provide high impact illumination while being highly energy efficient. The iconic Sparkle full LED headlamps with unique floating side indicators, C-shaped Sapphire LED DRLs and Ripple Tail Lamps add a distinct, instantly recognisable lighting signature to the car, which perfectly complements the LED ambient lighting inside the car. While the Innovative Lighting System give it a truly unique lighting signature, the R17 Crystal Cut alloys enhance its agile stance.
