While Renault’s small cars were not able to impress the Indian customers their compact SUV has done the job perfectly. Their popular offering the compact SUV space came in the form of the Duster launched back in 2012. This is definitely counted as one of their most successful product in the Indian market. Now it seems like Renault is all set to add another Crossover to their lineup. Called the Kaptur, now this particular name will sound familiar to you all because Renault already sells the car in the markets of Europe but the Crossover is called Captur there.

Now the Crossover which will be sold in the Indian market will although look identical to the ones sold in the European market but it will be based on a completely different platform here in India, while the European spec Captur underpins Clio’s platform but in India, it will be based on Duster’s platform. Now according to the reports, this has been done deliberately keeping the developing market in mind. Renault definitely has plans to keep the pricing in check and thus also will be looking to share many of its parts as well with some of their existing cars of the Indian market.
