Renault CAPTUR - The Stylish New SUV


Travelling and exploring a new place is always fun and exciting for me. My recent trip to the beautiful land of Coorg for the Renault CAPTUR Blogger Meet, was every bit exciting and filled with adventure. Coorg has one of the most beautiful lush green terrains in India and the best natural off-roading track at Mandalpatti, which made it the ideal location to test the performance of the all new Renault CAPTUR.

We started the drive on a beautiful morning from Taj Madekeri, our hotel with enthusiasm for the upcoming experience. Set on top of the beautiful hills of Mandalpatti, a sight to behold, we started the off -road experience. The track was strenuous with many dust filled pits and full of rocks but the CAPTUR seemed in full control and handled the terrain really well. With the 210 mm ground clearance and solid suspension, CAPTUR took on all that came its way.

The Renault CAPTUR, is truly called as the most stylish SUV in India. The biggest USP of the CAPTUR is in the styling. Renault has loaded the CAPTUR with features and looks that you normally find in luxury segment cars.  The features like floating side indicators, ripple tail lamps, 17 inch crystal cut alloy wheels, sparkle full-led headlamps, combined with the bold chrome studded front grille, really makes it a treat for the eyes.


The Renault CAPTUR’s expressive design is carried forward on the inside. The smart access card along with infinity instrument cluster gives it a really futuristic imagery. The CAPTUR features ultra-premium interiors with rich ivory leather and contrast gold deco stitching. The ErgoDesign Leather Seats are 6-way adjustable and come with ample legroom in both the front and back rows. Together with a high driving position that offers wraparound panoramic visibility, the CAPTUR delivers unmatched comfort. The Renault CAPTUR’s ultra-premium interiors are complemented by thoughtful and convenient storage spaces, and a 392-litre boot that’s expandable up to 1352 litres.



Renault is offering two engine options with the Captur - a petrol and a diesel in a 1.5-litre engine block. This H4K gasoline engine produces 106 PS at 5600 RPM & 142 NM of torque at 4000 RPM. Perfectly blending power with efficiency, the CAPTUR delivers a dynamic drive experience.


Renault also offers a lot of personalisation choices and there’s never been a better way to express yourself. You can start by choosing a distinctive body colour from the wide range of fashion-inspired dual tone roof styling. There’s also the option of enhancing your CAPTUR’s interior and exterior with exclusive themed personalisation packs in a choice of colour combinations. Add to this, a wide selection of chrome embellishments, and you have a car that’s unmistakably you.



Renault CAPTUR is a great all-rounder SUV and can deal with a good deal of rough stuff and tricky terrain with agility and stability. It is a classic French balance of convenience, comfort, safety and practicality with exuberant design and modern touches. I totally recommend it if you are a SUV aspirant who loves to explore the natural surroundings on a long drive.
