Renault Kaptur 2016 — Renault Kaptur has been released recently in Moscow to serve the best small crossover car for Russian drivers. The name is an adapted name from the original Captur, Renault’s European version of the crossover. Even though most of the specs are similar to each other, Kaptur is reported to be adjusted to Russian terrain. Here are the announced details.
Renault Kaptur Specifications
Power and Specs
Possibly, this special crossover will use the same options for engine. If it is so, you should expect three engines. TCe petrol 1.2 liter engine is paired with auto transmission as a standard. The acceleration is great, 10.9 seconds for 62 mph, but it is a slow respond engine. Turbocharged TCe 0.9 petrol engine is a small engine with better performance. The acceleration is 13 mph with 107 mph top speed, but it responds a lot better. The dCi 1.5 liter diesel engine is offered as well, with 13.9 seconds of acceleration. It offers better fuel economy. Unlike the original version, this new Renault Kaptur crossover will be empowered with all wheel drive configuration as well.
Exterior and Interior
The whole exterior remains similar with only few changes. The ride height is elevated for better performance, and the suspension is built for heavy duty drive. The front upper grille of new 2016 Renault Kaptur is wider with different honeycomb mesh, even though it brings out the same look. Door inserts and hood are made more muscular. The entire lights are using C shaped lights of LED. The whole appearance is sportier and more aggressive.

Renault Kaptur Release date and Price
Renault plans to release this car in Russia this summer. Meanwhile, the price remains unannounced so far. However, the estimation shouldn’t go too far from the original price for Captur, which is starting from £14,575 up to £21,475.
In sum, this car can be said as the twin of Captur, considering the most specs that remain the same. The adjustment is only very few, but it should fit drivers on different terrain as in targeted market location. Even though it won’t be so reliable on country drive, Renault Kaptur will make excellent city crossover.
