Renault Captur Diesel Review. Comparison with SUV, Cross Cars in Similar Price Band

Renault Captur Diesel Review in India. Review in what other Diesel SUV and Crossover Cars can be pitched against Renault Captur Rxe, Rxl, Rxt, Pristine Variant


Renault Captur Diesel Review

Renault Captur is Premium Crossover from Renault India has its USP of

» Good Stable Car in Ride, Handling on High Speed

» Good Road Presence, Feels Stylish in Top End Fully Loaded Model

» Renault Exterior Styling with Personalization along with the fact that Safety Features as Standard inspire Safe and Stylish Car appeal

» Wider and Longer than cars like S Cross, Hyundai Creta - gives a feel of Bigger Car

Although the Crossover has some downsides

» Steering Feel Heavier on City Roads

» Gear Shifts feels Average

» Although Suspension is Good but can have noise felt from Suspension

But - how well is Renault Captur Model Variants when listed with Competition Crossover and SUV Cars 

» Renault Captur RXE Diesel – Probably the best Value buy in Renault Captur line up (independently without considering competition) with its Feature List and Pricing – Captur is offering.

Still 3 Choices in Competition Cars

Maruti S Cross Alpha Diesel Top End Fully Loaded. If you seek a car with Styling, Top of Line Features S Cross Alpha has lot of character to it. Although relative smaller engine with 90 PS Power – but relative lower body weight by 15% makes S Cross Power to Body Weight output similar to Captur.

All New Ford Ecosport Titanium Plus Diesel Top of Line Fully Loaded Model with improvised Features - 6 Airbags, ESP, Hill Hold Assist, TPMS, 17 Inch Alloy Wheels, Premium Leather Sears along with Good Linear Power Delivery and Space although very marginally lower in cabin as against Captur Base Model is also priced almost 85K lower than Captur makes a superior value proposition as good alternative buy.

Alternate Choice is Honda WRV Vx Diesel – Despite been Sub 4 Meter, Honda WRV infact been more Spacious in Seating Space than Captur with better legroom Space. The USP of Sunroof with Fully Loaded Features, Good Linear Engine Performance and the price Point at almost Rs 1.5 Lakh lower than Captur RXE Diesel makes a strong Point for WRV

» Renault Captur RXL Diesel – An excellent alternative is Mahindra XUV500 W4 Diesel with much bigger 2 Litre and more Powerful 140 PS Power. If used as 5 Seater – you can have large wide accommodating 2nd Row Seat with a Huge Cargo Area.

Mahindra has done huge improvements in After Sale Service Satisfaction and has been ranked the best in JD Power After Sale Satisfaction, while Renault is ranking at the bottom Two Position

With XUV500 having discounts of 40K Cash along with exchange bonus and dealer level negotiation – the final ON road price will be close to Capture RXL Diesel

» Renault Captur RXT Diesel – Spend 30K more and you have Hyundai Creta Sx Plus Diesel as a Proven Cross in the Segment, else spend Rs 60K more and can end up with Bigger Macho XUV500 W6 Diesel. Both Cars comes with more Power and while Creta remains pick in Superior Interior Aesthetics, Styling, XUV500 has its own charisma of Monocoque Drive Handling with loads of Space as Bigger Premium looking Car.

Care for Sturdy one - get on Tata Hexa XM Diesel with Price of XM Diesel after Free Insurance Scheme almost similar to Captur XT Diesel. The Varicor 400 NM Engine Performance makes Tata Hexa as most Powerful SUV in its class. You can have loads of Space in Tata Hexa XM and its Premium Interior Fit, Finish with Sturdy Body Design and Top Notch Suspension even puts in class of best Off road car in its class

» Renault Captur Pristine Diesel Dual Tone – If you have come so far to spend almost Rs 16 Lakh+ On Road in Delhi or Rs 17 Lakh+ in Bangalore – then by spending a Lakh more you can enjoy in choices like – Hyundai Creta Automatic Diesel or Mahindra XUV500 W6 Automatic for better convenience of driving an Automatic Car

If you care for driving dynamics – Renault Duster All Wheel Drive as sibling is an excellent pick

Care for Manual Transmission only – Hyundai Creta Sx Option Manual will cost around 75K higher or Ultimate Mahindra XUV500 W9 Diesel with 6 Airbags, Sunroof after discounts will cost around a Lakh more.   

Lot of choices especially if considering Renault Captur Pristine and the fact that its available only in Manual Transmission.


Final Recommendation - Although Renault Captur in itself is a good overall package product, but the competition in recent times has taken new heights. It wont be Easy Cake-walk for Renault and the Kind of Model Variants available in Competition Cars - can be bit tough to make a standing,
