Renault Captur available with discounts upto ₹ 1.25 lakhs

Published

on

Renault Captur AMT ground clearance

The Renault Captur has not been selling as well as expected. There could be multiple reasons of that. One is the close pricing of it with the Duster. This had the buyers confused initially. Now the company has dropped the price of the Duster. However, the sales of Captur have not taken off. There are heavy discounts being offered on the Captur. These discounts are on vehicles manufactured in 2017, which have piled up at dealerships. In order to clear stocks for new arrivals, the company has offered discounts to the tune of Rs.1.25 lakhs.

This SUV is built on the B0 platform. It shares its underpinnings with the Duster. The Duster has also seen a major price drop recently. The Captur sold in Europe is built on a different platform. There is no similarity between the two. The B0 platform has been highly localised already, hence it brings a price benefit to the Captur. Renault India wants to get a stylish and modern SUV that will appeal to young and trendy car buyers. It reckons, this will be that SUV for them.

It is a highly localized product and comes with many new features. A 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines do duty on it. The diesel gets 108bhp of power and six-speed manual. There is no automatic or AMT on petrol or even diesel engine. No AWD also on offer.

Petrol₹ 9.99 lakhs₹ 11.07 lakhs₹ 11.69 lakhs
Diesel₹ 11.39 lakhs₹ 12.47 lakhs₹ 13.09 lakhs₹ 13.88 lakhs

In terms of pricing, Renault is higher than the Duster. This is more modern, premium styling and does offer a lot more bells and whistles too.  Its pricing starts at  9.99 lakhs for the base model petrol on road and it shall go up to almost  14 lakhs. TRenault is looking at capturing Creta’s market share. Not a major percentage but atleast some extent of it, to enhance its volumes.

Peak Torque150Nm250Nm
Transmission5-speed manual6-Speed Manual

 

A 1.5-litre petrol engine churns about 99bhp of power and it produces about 150Nm of maximum torque. This engine is the same one that is offered on the Nissan Sunny too. It comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The petrol engine is silent and has low NVH too.

The 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine churns about 108bhp of power and 250Nm of maximum torque. This engine is the most commonly used diesel engine by Renault. The same one on the Duster diesel too. At the same time, there is more than sufficient torque to drive in the city and even to overtake. The NVH levels of this engine aren’t too loud, but the insulation inside the Captur is good enough. This enhances the interior comfort of the car.

Design

The biggest USP of this SUV is its styling. The design is modern and it looks fresh. Renault wants to make a bold statement with the new Captur. This SUV has a styling front grille, like other French Renault models. The headlamps are pulled back and they have LEDs. The front bumper has a lot of black on it and the fog lamps look cool too.

From the side, the design is of a crossover. It appears small in images, but in real it tall and long. This SUV is longer than the Duster. The wheel well seems to a tad empty and bigger tyres could have been offered. The rear looks stylish too. The tail lamp is small and there is contrast roof too. The ground clearance at 211mm is the highest in this segment. The glass area is small too.

Interiors

On the inside, the Captur has a lot of new elements. To begin with there is an all new dashboard. The centre console consists of AC vents, followed by the touchscreen system that we have seen on the Kwid and even the Duster. This is one aspect that could have been avoided. There is climate control, which is the same like the Duster.

The steering wheel has cruise control and audio controls behind it. The instrument cluster is all new and it does look stylish. The design is cool and is unique too. There is digital speedometer and the rev meter is there. The side AC vents are circular. The front row seats are large and comfortable. There is more than sufficient head room and even comfort for the front passengers.  The touch and feel of materials is a lot premium.

The rear seats have decent knee room. The head room is generous at the back. The rear seats split 60:40 and there is an arm rest too. There is rear AC vent too. The boot space is 387 litres and it increases to 1,200 litres.  The rear seat folds flat making it convenient.

Maruti New Ertiga 2018 Interior

The interiors are all new. They are similar to the new DZire as they will offer somewhat some design. Like the Dzire, there will be inserts of faux wood to the dashboard and doors. There is a new design for the AC vents, stylish wooden touches, all beige interiors. A 6.5-inch touchscreen system. There will be push start and stop, keyless entry, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with inbuilt navigation. Dual airbags and ABS will be a standard feature.

2018 Maruti Ertiga Infotainment System

 

One of the most impressive bits about the new Ertiga 2018 interior will be the space and the quality.  Every seat gets it’s own cup holder and the center console gets a chilled cup holder. The materials will look a lot more premium than they are at the moment. The seat quality, the fabric will be much better than the current vehicle. The cup holders will have a cooling function.

The wheelbase has been increased. This will mean that the new MUV will have better knee room for rear passengers. Whats more they will even offer better space too for the third row of passengers. The India-spec version will get automatic climate control. However there is no cruise control on offer. The second row seat gets a 60:40 split and the third row seat has a 50:50 split. The boot space has increased too.

Maruti Ertiga 2018 Engine and Transmission

In terms of engines, there will be a new 1.5-litre petrol engine that will produce about 103bhp of power and 138Nm of torque. The petrol engine will be offered with the five-speed manual and a automatic four-speed gearbox from the Ciaz. There will be no CNG option available with this engine. It was thought, that a factory fitted unit will be offered. The 1.3-litre diesel engine will produce about 90bhp of power and 200Nm of torque. This is the old DDIS 200 engine and will come with a five-speed manual. There was a expectation that the diesel will come with a new six-speed manual and a AMT option. Maruti seems to be ready to offer AMT on all its vehicles now. Recently the Vitara Brezza also got launched with an AMT in diesel. There is a chance of the Ertiga also getting a diesel AMT later on.

Maruti Ertiga 2018 Design

The new MUV gets a sharp design sharp design. It looks more premium now. The front reminds you of the Innova Crysta. There is a wide front grille with chrome surround and the headlamps are sweptback large ones. This will offer projector lamps and even daytime running LEDs as well. There shall be 15-inch wheels on offer. The side profile is sleek and proportioned. The rear too is all new and looks more premium now. The over all appeal is now better.

In terms of dimensions, there won’t be a big change. The length has increased a bit and even the height is about 5mm more. The width has also increased. This has improved the space inside the car. The Ertiga now looks matured and more premium. This has worked in its favour and Maruti will continue to add more to its current USP of the Ertiga. There will be an increase in its length and even the bells and whistles too.

One of the strongest points for the new Ertiga will be its styling. The new-gen Marutis are looking stylish and this will be one of the talking points for this MUV. It will look premium and will offer some exciting colors too.

Maruti Ertiga 2018 Competition

The Maruti Ertiga 2018 directly competes with Renault’s Lodgy. The Lodgy is a bigger car than the Ertiga. The Renault also offers a more powerful engine with a 6 speed gearbox. The Lodgy has a far bigger boot than the Ertiga and has a bigger fuel tank. There are more features on the Lodgy than the Ertiga. The new car has a lot to rectify and bring back into its favor. The car will win on pricing as the Lodgy is still very expensive. In fact, the Ertiga is still 2 lakh cheaper than the Lodgy.

Royal Enfield Classic 500

Royal Enfield came to India in 1955 and partnered with Madras Motors to form Royal Enfield India. The cult following has only grown over the year and now only sky seems to be the limit. In 2009 R.E decided to launch a retro looking motorcycle. The Classic 350 and Classic 500 was the answer to that. This was a bike I used to read and ogle about in college days hoping to buy it someday as I knew I could never afford a Harley Davidson. The 350 a carburettor and the 500 being a fuel-injection. This is one design that gives a complete nostalgic feel with a pan head kind of design. Even so that it started to appeal more to the Bullet loving fans. The Royal Enfield Classic 500 2017 is here, read further to know more.
