Renault KAPTUR : Fitted for Russia

It’s not a secret anymore. After the teaser introducing its line 15 days ago on our website, Laurens van den Acker (SVP Design) & A. Pankov (SVP Renault Russia) officially introduced Renault KAPTUR, the brand new four-wheel drive crossover for Russia.

A genuine crossover, with a robust, expressive design

To design Renault KAPTUR, we have mixed the best of Renault’s eye-catching design with a specific attention to Russian needs for off-road abilities, travelling comfort and versatility.

The front end features Renault’s new styling cues, including a bold Renault logo set against a gloss black background. The wide upper section of the distinctive grille features a new honeycomb mesh pattern, while the broad lower part of the bumper visually widens the car. The sculpted forms of the bonnet and door inserts are other bold crossover cues that express strength.

As at the front, a key feature at the rear is the C-shaped lighting signature of the 3D-effect LED taillights.

Комфорт comme Confortable

In addition to its bold yet elegant exterior lines, the KAPTUR features a stylish, comfortably-appointed, occupant-friendly cabin that can be customised to obtain a unique interior ambience.

All occupants enjoy outstanding comfort, while the driver benefits from the highest driving position (708mm from the ground) in the KAPTUR’s segment. The rear bench seat comfortably accommodates three adults.

The KAPTUR’s boot volume is 387 litres and carrying capacity increases to 1,200 litres with the 60/40-split bench in the fully-folded position. Loading is facilitated thanks to a wide tailgate aperture (1,002mm) and additional boot lighting.

The KAPTUR comes with a modern equipment package for everyday use, including intuitive technologies such as keyless entry, ignition and locking for all versions. The KAPTUR is also available with the MEDIA NAV system which covers all the basic multimedia functions, complete with a seven-inch (18cm) touch screen display, a radio and Bluetooth® connectivity for audio streaming and hands-free use of mobile phones.

A 100% Russian crossover

The KAPTUR is an all-terrain 4x4 crossover engineered to cope with the conditions that can be encountered in Russia thanks to its high ground clearance (204mm), heavy duty suspension and reliable all-wheel drive transmission incorporating a locking centre differential. Other key features that make it ideal for the harsh wintry conditions that can be found in Russia and CIS countries are Renault’s Remote Engine Start system, heated front seats and a heated windscreen.
