The lower end RXE and RXL variants in petrol and diesel guise continue with the same pricing. The Renault Captur is now priced between Rs 10 Lakhs to Rs 13.25 Lakhs (ex-showroom).

We believe that the price cut has come to take on the upcoming heat from Tata Harrier and Nissan Kicks. Both the SUVs are launching by the end of this month. Also, both of them have established their arrival with some unique cues.

Nissan Kicks will be Renault Captur’s rival number one. Kicks comes with many premium features like a 360-degrees camera, LED projector headlamps, Rain-Sensing Wipers, Smartband and 8-inch floating touchscreen infotainment.

On the other hand, Tata Harrier is also a formidable SUV. Although, its prices are expected to be little higher than Renault Captur. Harrier is Tata’s flagship SUV and is also most premium one from their stable.

Renault Captur also competes with the likes of Hyundai Creta and Maruti Suzuki S-Cross. Creta is the best selling in its segment, despite having an upward of Rs 1-2 Lakhs. Maruti S-Cross is a slow performer for the brand.

Captur gets a 1.5 Litre petrol and a 1.5 Litre diesel engine. The petrol engine produces 106 BHP and 142 Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine produces 110 BHP and 240 Nm of peak torque.
