New Renault Kaptur Is Russia’s Longer And Wider Captur With AWD

As part of Renault’s plan to introduce 10 new models this year and to continue its expansion outside Europe, the popular Captur has grown in size and been renamed to Kaptur exclusively for the Russian market.

The Kaptur is 211 mm longer, 35 mm wider and 47 mm taller than the European Captur, while Renault further differentiated it from the European model with new C-shaped LED signature lights on both ends, plus a reworked grille and lower part of the front bumper.

Open the door and besides seating for five, the Russian model comes fitted with keyless entry, keyless go and locking for all versions, heated front seats, heated windscreen, Radio and Bluetooth, but instead of the R-Link infotainment, it will use the Media Nav, with a 7-inch touchscreen.

While the European Captur is only offered in front-wheel drive, the Russian version has gained an all-wheel drive system, which, along with the locking center differential, heavy duty suspension and 204 mm ground clearance will help the Kaptur cope with the harsher conditions encountered in the country.

The Renault Kaptur is manufactured at the firm’s plant in Moscow and it will go on sale this summer.

    Apparently it’s a modified Duster platform (as opposed to the Clio on which the EU Captur is based), hence the 4WD and extra ground clearance.

    This is actually no relation to the Captur, rather it’s an upmarket version of the Dacia Duster, sold as a Renault in Russia and other countries, apparently it’ll be coming to India too so it’s not exclusive to Russia.

    Given how much it is larger and the Duster relation, I think this is more of a discount Kadjar alternative, so I don’t get why they try to give it a relation to the Euro Captur…..

      Because the Captur is their cash-cow. they know that it works.
