The Captur will be pit against the Hyundai Creta and Jeep Compass when it goes on sale in India.

The India-spec Captur will be unveiled on Thursday, September 21, 2017. The Indian car will be the first right-hand-drive version of the car (it’s sold in most markets abroad as a left-hand-drive car).

The Captur will be built on the carmaker’s versatile M0 platform, the same platform that underpins the venerable Duster. The company has managed to locally source a lot of its parts to keep costs low. The Captur will be powered by the company’s tried-and-tested 1.5-litre petrol motor and the ubiquitous 1.5-litre K9K motor. For now, the car will only be available with a manual gearbox, but it also comes fitted with full-LED headlamps flanked by LED DRLs, an option for a contrasting roof, dual-tone interiors, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

Expect Renault to price the car in the region of ₹12 lakh (ex-showroom).
