New 2019 Renault Captur to Come With Hybrid Powertrain

The new Renault Captur in India will rival the Hyundai Creta & Jeep Compass

Renault Captur is the flagship car that the company sells in India now that the Fluence D-Segment sedan has been discontinued in the country. The car that was to decide the fate for the automaker in India could not bring in the numbers even after leaving great first impressions.

However, according to reports the new 2019 Renault Captur will debut sometime early next year in the global car market and try to charm the buyers with added features and better performance. It is extremely important for the Renault Captur to do well in our market since the premium compact SUV segment has been witnessing quite a growth with cars like Hyundai Creta, Jeep Compass and more in the competition.

2019 Renault Captur To Get A Rechargeable Hybrid Powertrain

The Renualt Captur that is in sale in India has a lot of things in common with its younger sibling – the Renault Duster. To start with the car was based on the same platform as the Duster but was marginally longer than the latter. The India variant came with a 1.5-litre petrol engine that made 108 PS of power and 142 Nm of torque. However, the new 2019 Renault Captur is rumored to come with a Rechargeable Hybrid Powertrain PHEV as well.

This change might be restricted to global markets only and might not make it to India though. Other engine options in the Global Renault Captur will be – a 1.5-litre diesel in two states of tune of 85 Bhp and 115 Bhp, a 0.9-litre TCe unit, and a 1.3 unit TCe. These power trains too won’t likely come to India and the company might stick with the 1.5-litre engine making 108 PS of peak power.

2019 Renault Captur Price in India and Launch Date

The all new Renault Captur is rumored to make its debut in global markets in early 2019 with a Rechargeable Hybrid Powertrain PHEV. There is no official word as of now and no details on cosmetic upgrades either. However, if the Renault Captur does make it to India anytime soon then we believe that Renault will not change the pricing drastically and will keep the costs largely the same. A premium of 20,000-30,000 cannot be ruled out though.
