Re: Rumour: Renault Might Launch Captur in India in 2016
 
Renault, the French car manufacturer, is considering a sub-4 metre SUV for the Indian market. To be slotted below the top-selling Duster SUV, the new compact SUV will challenge the Ford EcoSport and the upcoming Maruti YBA.

The Indian version of the Captur will see some changes versus the European version that was launched in 2013. The most major part is that the length is likely to be brought down to under four metres to avail of excise duty benefits, from the current 4.1 metres,” a source close to the development said. The engines are expected to be the 1.5 litre diesel and 1.2 litre petrol engine used across Renault and Nissan models like the Micra, Sunny, Duster and even the Fluence.
To be launched by 2017/18.

Renault as a brand will be introducing the Kadjar and Captur in India in 2016 nd 2017 respectively. As per the plan, Renault will introducing these two SUVs and Nissan will be building up on X-Trail and Qashqai as all these vehicles fall under the same CMF-C-D platform. There isn’t just platform sharing, but even the engines on these are shared

Renault lines up slew of UV launches; poses biggest threat to M&M.

Renault has now set its sights on the space occupied by the Mahindra XUV500 and plans to launch a new SUV, codenamed HHA, likely in October 2017.

The vehicle, based on the globally successful Captur design, will be introduced before two compact vehicles - an SUV and an MPV - take shape on the Common Module Family-A (CMF-A) platform. In between, an all-new Duster is scheduled to hit the market in 2018.
The two vehicles on the CMF-A platform are likely to be priced between Rs 5 lakh and Rs 10 lakh, filling the gap between the entry-level Kwid and the new Duster and HHA. ET talked to five people with knowledge of Renault's product plans in India.
he new premium SUV (HHA) is an emerging market derivative of the Captur. It is based on the Logan M0-B platform, with a highly successful European styling and it will have an all-new longer body for markets like India, Russia and Brazil, and meet the practicality of seven seat

Since the model is based on the M0-Logan platform, it will share a lot of parts with the Duster and the Lodgy multi-purpose vehicle, helping the company enjoy from economies of scale and develop the vehicle quickly and at a lower cost.

Will first launch in Russia next year.
The Economic Times reports that Renault India will launch an SUV in October 2017, codenamed ‘HHA’. The HHA will target the likes of the Mahindra XUV500 and the forthcoming Honda BR-V, apart from compact SUVs like the Hyundai Creta.

Attachment 181920

The design of the SUV will be along the lines of the hugely popular Renault Captur. However, where the Captur is based on the fourth-generation Renault Clio platform, the Captur for India (and emerging markets) will use the Renault Duster’s M0 platform.
Apart from switching to an older, albeit well localized platform, the M0-based Captur will also sport a longer wheelbase, and will offer seating for seven occupants. Renault India has well localized this platform on the Duster and the Lodgy, and hence, prices for the Captur are expected to be competitive. It’ll also help engineers develop the vehicle quickly.

Attachment 181921

Last week, a Russian report stated that the Captur for emerging markets will first enter production at the Avtoframos plant in Russia, from the second half of next year. For the Russian market, the Captur will also get the benefit of an AWD system, whereas the European model is sold exclusively with a front-wheel drive layout.

The Renault Kaptur will go on sale in Russia in Summer 2016 (June-August 2016). It will be locally built at the company’s Moscow plant, from where, Russian reports suggest, exports will likely be made to other nations of the Eurasian Economic Union: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. In India, the Kaptur will reportedly be launched in October 2017.

The Indian version should be built at the Renault-Nissan’s Alliance plant in Oragadam near Chennai.

Renault is all set to bring the KAPTUR to India. Will be more premium than the Duster.
Based on the Duster platform the Kaptur will take on higher variants of Hyundai's Creta. Introduced for Russia and now relealesed in Brazil too, Renault will launch it here in late 2017.

Now testing in India,

If this is going to be placed above Duster, then it is going into Tuscon territory. It will definitely be a disaster and DoA. It is basically a 5 seater and does not even come close to Rexton or Tuscon or even the CR-V in terms of road presence, however premium the product may be. I have seen it in flesh here. It more or less looks like Nexon and was definitely not a head turner. 15+ lakhs for a car with 1.5 l Diesel engine and zero road presence, well good luck Renault.

Renault to launch CAPTUR in India during this festive season ~ October 2017.
Attachment 228594

Will be in Petrol and diesel, both in MT configuration at launch. AT and AWD will come later. The Captur will sit a segment above Duster and will rival Hyundai's Creta.

Captur for India will be built on the Duster's platform and will be powered by the tried and tested engine combinations from the Duster .
This platform and engines used will differentiate it from the international model as they are the new generation and will be cost prohibitive for India.

Like the Duster, will this have the same sub-standard airbags and spare parts to make it cost effective for Indian customers? I will never trust a Renault product ever again and risk my family's safety.

Hope The Captur will have better VFM than the overpriced Creta to get a nice slice of the sales pie. Otherwise it will be another Renault Pulse/Scala.

Two questions
1. Will it come with Petrol + AT
2. How does rear legroom compare with Duster. In Duster while its a wide bench for 3, legroom is a squeeze

Spoke to Renault RM today:
1. Does not know the exact date when display car will be available but should be sometime in October
2. Tomorrow is unveil only and not launch
3. Only MT will be available in Diesel and Petrol. No AT variant will be launched

Don't know why manufacturers are shying away from launching AT variant. First Maruti with S-Cross and now Renault with Captur

Really looks stylish and hot. Never liked the duster looks. Only one complaint, the round center console housing looks very kwid like (reused) and looks ugly. From outside, its looking sexy but inside dashboard is a letdown.

Sakthivel Rajendran 22nd September 2017 10:13 PM

Re: Renault Captur Slated To Debut in India
 
I doubt about its success, except for fresh design & better interiors than duster, I don't know what it has got to offer. Suv's in this segment is supposed to offer Automatic and 4wd similar to Jeep Compass.

What is gonna be the unique selling feature over Duster or Jeep? - Jeep has got 4wd, all new engine, many safety features, plasma welding, off roading, different driving 4wd modes etc.

Its premium interiors? / New design? & better comfort ? - Wheelbase is identical to Duster, design is good but already 3 year old design, heading for mid-cycle facelift in Europe. It isn't fresh and imposing as Jeep. The ride is good, tad stiffer than duster but Hexa is in a different league. According to Autocar review even the rear seat knee room is nothing to write about. The interiors aren't that upmarket and hard plastics are found on the dashboard.

The engine, gearbox & auto climate control unit is same as duster. Unless priced competitively lower than Jeep compass this isn't a winner. It might have a new design, interiors, mechanically robust, reliable in the longer run and added features but it doesn't make a potential customer to seriously overlook compass, upcoming Mahindra Tivoli, Creta & Hexa.

AbhisekVerma 22nd September 2017 11:26 PM

Re: Renault Captur Slated To Debut in India
 
Renault has done a Nexon here. Increased GC insanely to 210mm. Reduced height drastically wrt Duster. Now definitely headroom is highly compromised and thus loses on the SUVish feel.

acechip 23rd September 2017 08:31 PM

Re: Renault Captur Slated To Debut in India
 
I am quite disappointed with the half-baked product that Renault has hastily cooked up in the face of the Jeep onslaught. Renault seems to think that they can charge a premium just for external looks and retain the Duster engines, which is a common norm in a mature market like Europe for instance. But in India, consumers weigh everything for their rupees worth. And if he is getting the same engines as the Duster for 3 lac more, he sure isnt going to be happy, never mind whether he is actually able to utilize the extra horses or the torque ever in the car's lifetime. To add to that are the relatively anti-climactic interiors, that simply don't gel with the stylish exteriors. Renault should have pretty much changed the car inside out, instead of giving the Duster like touchscreen and hard plastics. They worked for the Duster,but wont work for a car launched in 2017.
A wasted opportunity, in my opinion. They could have done so much more!

The upcoming 2019 Duster looks more upmarket with better interiors. In Europe they can price it differently since Duster belongs to Dacia, which itself is budget brand like Datsun & Daihatsu. Hence difference in pricing is justified. In India both the cars are sold under the same umbrella with identical mechanicals, wheelbase and electronics( infotainment & Auto climate control). No practical improvements(space & legroom) over Duster but demanding a premium for built & design cannot not be justified.

Re: Renault Captur Slated To Debut in India
 
I am afraid the Captur is destined for a similar fate like the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross (August sales figure of S-Cross were very poor)
The same old looking touchscreen head unit looks the same as in the entry-level Kwid and to the Duster, Lodgy even though the one on the Captur might come equipped with Andriod Auto and Apple Car play.
Pricing wise if the Captur does not undercuts its prime rival the Creta, than its dead on arrival for sure.
Looks wise, i hate crossovers. And the Captur didn't impress me (Looks are highly subjective so no offense).I would still pick the Duster at a lesser price than the Captur or even the S-Cross.
If i have the budget of under 20 Lakhs, i would rather pick a Creta, XUV500 or the Compass. Honestly speaking, The Captur confuses me.
Not Offering Automatic Transmission is another miss i hate. Wish Maruti Suzuki comes up with AT for the Vitara Brezza and S-Cross.
Lets wait and watch what the Captur can do for Renault India's sales figures. I guess it will have below 1K sales roughly.
I loved the Alloys of the Captur though

Maybe I was a bit harsh in my previous comment, the exteriors are a great job and they have played well with the well established Duster platform
Interiors, other than the front fascia , touch screen and AC knobs, everything else looks great especially the metal door handles on the inside
I hope they give it a good non-AMT AT for the diesel if they are gonna price it higher than Duster

Buddies,

We had the Captur yesterday with us. The Unveiling and Drive Observations of mine are hereby listed. The car is expected to launch during Diwali. Here you go:


* For me its the most modern looking Renault till now.

* Front profile looks aggressive.

* Side profile looks more like an MPV

* Rear profile looks clean and elegant.

* Headlamps look fab even when lit in daytime. At night they look really awesome.

* DRLs are powerful

* LED tail lamps look nice too.

* No over load of chrome on the exteriors.

* There is panel gap between the hood and the radiator grill. Looks as if the hood is not closed properly. Basically a design flaw.

* Alloys are 17inch in top spec. The design looks neat and elegant.

* The Orange/Red Color looks quite beautiful in real.

* The White color with the contrast roof also looks nice.

* In the interiors, Plastic quality is needing more improvement and the appeal factor should be more in comparison to the competition. As of their own products, yes, Captur is much more modern.

* Cubby holes are missing. I missed the front door coin pockets.

* The White & Black interiors and seat covers look good only if well kept. The White part will attract the dust and stains easily.

* No Dead pedal

* The Cabin feels cramped. I mean not as cramped as a Eco-Sport but still it doesn't give the feel of roominess.

* Front fixed center armrest should have a usable storage space.

* Inner door latch design look more like those of Honda Brio.

* No Coat hooks on rear roof grips.

* The dash mounted storage box's lid doesn't open at once and when it opens then it does not close properly.

* Seats felt comfortable both in front and rear but the big rear armrest spoils the space for 3 passenger in rear.

* Front and Rear AC are sufficiently good.

* Steering wheel looks to be taken from the Duster. The steering mounted controls remind of Duster.

* ICE display is weak. The display in daytime is not very clear.

* ICE sound quality if compared to Harman is not as good.

* Speedometer Console is the only unique thing in the interiors of Captur.

* A slight blind spot can be felt near the A-Pillar.

* The rear visibility is fine.

* Wipers swipe and spray is fine.

* Horn sound is good.

* The Engine is nothing new when compared to Duster. Those who own a Duster wouldn't trade their car for it.

* The Clutch is very soft.

* Steering is light but responsive.

* Body roll is there but quite controlled.

* Braking is acceptable. There is Disc and Drum setup.

* The car stalled multiple times in 2nd gear while going up and even on plain roads when we tried to test it's pulling power from 0 km/h with 2nd gear it refused to move. It was the case with all the Captur(s).

* After a lot of effort we managed to make it move after shutting the AC for some distance but there was clutch plate smell coming out.

* Being a Diesel engine the performance isn't upto the mark. Expected it to be at-least be at par with the Duster.

* In-cabin NVH above 3K RPM is poor in Diesel.

* Open the hood of diesel and the sound of engine is noisy. Will be posting a video.

* Interior aesthetics wise and even performance wise, S-Cross 1.6 looks way more better deal than this one. Nexon is a class apart in comparison.

* Ingress and Egress are fine due to raised height.

* Built quality is good and so is the paint quality too.

* Apollo Tires offered satisfactory grip on rough roads and the suspension and ride was acceptable enough.

* Turning it on sharp turns doesn't give you that comfort feeling. The size of the car makes it a lethargic performer on sharp turns.

* Renault should not think about asking too much premium over Duster. It will be bad for both the products.

* Sales cannibalization will surely happen with the Duster.

* There are personalized kits available for Captur just like the iCreate.

* Glove Box isn't too spacious as well though has proper illumination.

* Under hood fuse box wasn't opening properly.

* The fender cladding rivets (Blue Color) were visible from inside the hood. A big visible gap was there.

* The doors did not shut at once and needed a second effort.

* As per the presentation by the officials there, the base variant is also feature loaded.

* Overall, in my view, to opt for this as an upgrade to Duster is not a wise move. If someone still has a itch then its their choice.

* Definitely better interiors than a Duster but will someone pick Captur above/over a Nexon or Eco-Sport Diesel, well, it is actually not possible in my view. But yes, this one does have more to offer than a Brezza.

Media Drive Experience.

* Logistic issues happened in our case and a couple more journos too.

* The location was good but the planning of the drive and the lazy escort car was a put-off.

* We had to share our car with other publication. Due to lack of pre-loaded map we couldn't choose the route and drove as per our wish but in the end it proved helpful to judge the car.

* I was given a non-smoking room at the venue[roll]

* In 2 days I lost my way number of times from the Restaurant to the room as the property was huge[lol]

* The weather was humid so both me and Vibhor has lot of Diet Cokes to keep ourselves hydrated.

* I appreciate the efforts of the media agency but planning and co-ordination could be much better.

* I wish I can attend some more media drives in future as well.

Regards

Akash
