The variants that have received the maximum price cut are the premium ones, including the diesel AWD which attracts a whopping reduction of Rs 1 lakh! It appears that the move has also been taken to give the Captur more breathing space. The Captur (priced between Rs 9.99 lakh - 14.05 lakh) is a comparatively better-loaded product however the price overlaps were possibly causing some cannibalisation. With the price cut, Renault seems to have covered the Rs 8-15 lakh price bracket with two products more effectively.
