One rarely finds cars that combines the ruggedness of a true SUV with the ease of use you get with a sedan. On my recent trip to Coorg I was invited to experience the new Renault CAPTUR – a car that is one of the most stylish vehicles to enter the compact SUV & blends a bold, assertive presence with expressive styling.
I stayed at TAJ Medikeri along with other bloggers from all over India who were invited. In the two day power packed itinerary not only did we get chance to get familiar with CAPTUR’s features but also had a first hand experience of how it performs in rough & tough terrains. We had an ice-breaking session and brand presentation on the first day, followed by second day where we got the chance to go for an off-road expeirence.
The first thing I noticed when I entered the car were the ultra-premium interiors, leather seats and ample legroom in both the front and back rows. The interiors are further complemented by a 392-litre boot that’s expandable up to 1352 litres. The car is loaded with other top features including a unique smart card access, and a centre console that has a touch-screen system which has built-in navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, FM, AUX-in and USB connectivity.
We drove from Coorg to Mandalpatti, threw a small party inside the car which was followed by lunch at Rain forest resort.
The car simply flew the worst of roads without ever losing composure. Also gave us pleasure of watching every other road user slow down where we speeded up.
Innovative technology, stylish look and powerful performance is what describes Renault CAPTUR. It’s monster engine, diamond cut alloy wheels & 210mm ground clearance makes it capable to handle all kinds of rough and tough terrains.
My new found love is a beauty and beast at the same time. Can you say the same for yours?
Not to forget one can also personalize it the way they want. We have all thought about how our dream car will look like and Renault gives us an option to choose a distinctive body color that is complemented by wide range of fashion-inspired dual tone roof designs. There’s also an option of enhancing CAPTUR’s interior and exterior with exclusive themed personalisation packs with a choice of color combination. Add to this, a wide selection of chrome embellishments, and VOILA! You have your dream car, ready.
With a curvaceous design, the CAPTUR has a dynamic front, primarily due to the sleek headlamps and the grille. It’s innovative lighting system includes sparkle full LED headlamps, iconic C- shaped sapphire LED DRLs, unique floating indicators, ripple tail lamps and LED ambient lighting on the inside.
The vehicle checks all boxes that are required in this segment & will appeal more to buyers like me who are looking for standout looks and good driving performance.
