Renault Reacts To Russia's Needs By Expanding Range With Specially Designed Kaptur 4x4
|   Monday, April 25, 2016
Renault recently announced the launch of the Kaptur crossover in Russia. Presentation of the range expansion took place in Moscow and the company representatives have said the car will have four-wheel drive. The launch of the Kaptur in the SUV segment, which is enjoying a rapidly growing popularity, will help Renault to strengthen its image on the markets of Russia and the Eurasian Union.

The new model is the latest product brought in the Renault range in Russia where it joins other models like the Sandero Stepway, Duster and Koleos.

Renault Kaptur will be produced in Russia, at the factory in Moscow, and it seems that for starters it aims to put out of the factory 25,000 units next year.
In terms of size, the Kaptur is very close to the Duster standing 4.33 meters long, 1.81 meters wide and 1.61 meters high. The wheelbase of 2.67 meters is 65 mm longer than the European version of the Capture. Quite possibly this Kaptur will also underpin the Grand Capture version for Europe which will find the ideal place in the Renault-Dacia range after future Duster SUV will increase in size by 18 cm, to 4.50 meters.

The name Kaptur, with a "K", is not accidental - the people at Renault have studied the market and the public consciousness in Russia and concluded that any model with the letter "K" in the name, especially in the role as first letter highlights the Russian footprint, attributed to this model. Moreover, with the letter "K" start several qualities that people at Renault want associated with the new model: Качество (quality), Комфорт (comfort) and Красота (Beauty).

The boot for Renault Kaptur on the Russian market is 387 liters with the folding seat raised, but can be extended by partially or fully folding (60/40) up to 1200 liters. The width of opening the tailgate is 1 meter, facilitating loading and unloading. Kaptur comes with modern technologies, including the well-known Media Nav system, covering basic multimedia functions, together with a 7-inch monitor (18 cm).

In the interior, comfort is the word that comes to mind as soon as you sit down. The cabin is stylish and continues the elegant lines of the exterior. The driver is in the center of attention, being located in a high position with the seat located at a distance of 708 mm from the floor. The rear seats can accommodate three adults.

The new model of the French is a 4x4 crossover designed to cope with the terrain and conditions in Russia. Ground clearance is 204 mm and the suspension is a rigid one. Other key features such as heated seats and windshield make the Kaptur the ideal car for the harsh winter conditions that will be encountered in Russia.
The press release of the French makes no reference to the new Kaptur motorization in Russia, but experts in the field believe that the car will come with a variety of engines, both petrol and diesel. The motors may range from 1.2 liters to 2.0 liters, including 1.5 and 1.6 dCi flex-fuel.
