Article updated on November 7, 2017, post the Captur's launch.  

Post the discontinuation of the Koleos from India last year, the Duster has been Renault’s flagship SUV in the country. The French automaker has recently launched a new SUV/crossover, the Captur, which is a more premium product compared to the Duster. The Duster has been a bestseller with more than 1,73,500 units of the SUV sold since its launch in June 2012. With the Captur, Renault hopes to repeat the success.

A Quick Recap Of The Captur’s Origins 

The SUV made its world debut in Russia, in April 2016, where it is known as the ‘Kaptur’ (spelt with a K). It shares its design with the European Captur (Renault Clio-based) but is based on the Duster’s B0 platform, and is meant for emerging markets, including India.    

After Russia, this Duster-based SUV was revealed for the South American market at the 2016 São Paulo Motor Show in Brazil. It went on sale there in February this year and is known as the ‘Captur’ with a ‘C.’ And now, finally, it is available in the Indian market.
