Renault India has launched the cheaper variants of its Captur SUV in India and they are called the Captur Mono. The new variants come in single-tone paint finish as the company has ditched the dual-tone one.
With this, the prices of the Captur falls down by rs 17,000. Mono Tone Captur comes in both petrol and diesel versions in RXT and Platine variants.
While the price of the Captur RXT Mono Petrol is Rs 11.7 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi, the RXT Mono Diesel comes at a price tag of Rs 13.1 lakhs and Platine Mono at Rs 13.89 lakhs.
A premium SUV from Renault, the Captur sits above the Duster in terms of price and positioning. It competes with the likes of Hyundai Creta, if we talk about the price.
Based on a B-Zero platform, the front wheel driven car is powered by a 1.5 litre petrol engine that churns out a peak power of 104 Bhp and a peak torque of 142 Nm.
A 5-speed manual gearbox comes as standard. The K9K diesel engine comes with a variable geometry turbocharger and delivers 108 Bhp-240 Nm peak outputs. With the diesel engine, a 6-speed manual gearbox is offered.
The Captur, however, doesn’t get an all wheel drive option in India. Also, the CVT automatic gearbox is missing on the petrol engine and the AMT on diesel.
