Renault has rolled out a yearly update for the slow-selling Captur in India. The updated model offers new features and costs INR 9.5 lakh* onwards.
With the MY2019 update, the Renault Captur has switched to the new MediaNav Evolution infotainment system that comes with a 7-inch capacitive touch display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and EcoGuide – a system that monitors driving patterns and provides guidelines to reduce fuel consumption.
Renault has made significant changes to the standard safety pack of the Captur with the yearly update. It has introduced co-driver seat belt reminder and speed alert system, and it offers them as standard. Moreover, it has made rear parking sensors standard.
The range-topping grade Platine grade now comes with black leatherette seat upholstery instead of Ivory leather seat upholstery with Gold Deco stitches. There’s no mention of Platine badge on the steering wheel and fender and even gold gearshift bellow surround in the updated brochure, which could mean that these features have been deleted.
The Renault Captur range previously included RXE, RXL, RXT and Platine grades. The RXL and RXT mid-range grades are no longer available. Engine and transmission choices have remained unchanged.
Customers can go for either the 1.5-litre H4K naturally aspirated petrol engine paired with a 5-speed manual transmission or the 1.5-litre K9K dCi turbocharged diesel engine coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission. The petrol engine produces 106 PS and 142 Nm of torque, while the diesel engine develops 110 PS and 240 Nm of torque.
The Renault Captur’s prices previously ranged from INR 9,99,999-13,24,999*. Now, the prices prices start at INR 9,49,999* and go up to INR 12,99,999*. Below is the complete pricing.
