Renault reveals refreshed Captur, but not for India

Written by News Team

Renault has unveiled the 2024 Captur for the international markets. The new Captur not only gets visual updates but also quite a few functional updates as well.

Exterior Redesign

The 2024 Renault Captur facelift gets an extensive redesign to the front, bringing the model more in line with the brand’s latest design language. The grille has been redesigned and now features Renault’s new diamond logo. The wheel arches appear more pronounced, and the rear gets limited changes barring a revised bumper. The C-shaped wraparound taillights get new graphics. Renault is offering the SUV with wheel sizes from 17- to 19-inches.

Interior Upgrades

The cabin gets subtle revisions while packing more tech. There is a new 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with built-in Google Assistant, and a 10.25-inch digital instrument console. Renault is also using recycled materials in the cabin in place of leather upholstery.

Captur Powertrain Options

Power comes from a host of turbo petrol engine options for Europe. This includes the 1.0-litre three-cylinder motor with 90 bhp and a 1.3-litre four-cylinder mill available in two states of tune – 140 bhp and 160 bhp. Both engines are paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox, while the more powerful 160 bhp unit gets a 7-speed DCT automatic. Renault is also offering the 1.6-litre strong hybrid engine on the 2024 Captur that is paired with an electric motor and offers a combined output of 145 bhp.

Advanced Driving Aids

Renault has also updated the 2024 Captur to get the latest-generation driving aids including the predictive hybrid driving function and Active Driver Assist, for Level 2 autonomous driving.

Captur Not for India

Despite the global debut and the impressive features, the refreshed Captur is unlikely to be launched in India. The refreshed Russia-spec Captur’s B0+ platform may not come to India as the updated architecture underpins a slew of models in the Russian domestic market. In India, it is the B0 platform that is more common and is seen on vehicles like the first-gen Duster and the Nissan Kicks.
