Renault officially launched the Captur in November, but the compact SUV didn’t get a good start in the Indian market as customers opted for the cheaper Duster, which offered better value. Then the company announced massive discount offers to clear stocks but that didn’t work well.

The top of the line Captur after all discount costs at Rs. 10,88,000 effective Ex-showroom.
