Renault Captur India Launch Date
|Model||Expected Launch Date|
|Renault Captur SUV||October, 2017|
Renault India is yet to announce the official launch date of the Captur. However, it’s very likely that the launch of the Captur will fall around October, 2017. It’s worth a mention here that the Duster is fast losing out to its fresher rivals. While a facelift was launched last year, Renault India requires an all-new product to maintain its popularity in the SUV market. This is exactly where the Captur will help. While it will be priced significantly higher, it will still bring back the attention of SUV buyers towards the Renault brand.
Renault, while still quite on the launch date, has at least confirmed it will launch the Captur in India this year. Sumit Sawhney, Country CEO and Managing Director, Renault India Operations, said, “We are delighted to announce that we will launch our premium feature loaded Renault CAPTUR in India this year, which has delivered global success and is widely acclaimed for its stunning expressive design. CAPTUR has sold over a million cars worldwide and will enhance our product portfolio as we aim to grow our presence in the SUV segment in India. Like all our offerings in India, there will high levels of innovation and customisation in the Renault CAPTUR that will be launched in India, to best suite the Indian customers.”
