2017 Renault Kaptur
Renault’s latest offering for SUV loving Indian market
Renault is a pretty popular brand in India. Their products like Duster, Kwid has garnered immense popularity in the country. Compact SUVs being one of the most popular segments in Indian market Renault is planning another compact crossover in the segment, which is based on the European Renault Captur, but christened as “Kaptur”. The Kaptur will be manufactured in Russia, and in the Russian language the “K” is associated with the key characteristics of the vehicle: high quality (Качество), comfortable (Комфорт) and good looking (Красота).
Now the crossover will sport Renault’s modern generation design language which is appealing and very much urban. The car is codenamed as HHA, and it is a 7 seater premium crossover based on the fourth generation Clio. Initially, it will be launched in Brazilian market, and later we hope Renault will launch the car in India around late 2017. It will also launch in the emerging markets like Russia and Indonesia. Once launched, it will face tough competition from Hyundai Creta, Mahindra XUV500 and Honda BR-V. It might not adorn the badge “Kaptur” in India although.
