The Renault Captur was first introduced in the Indian market, back in 2017. However, the SUV never really took off in terms of sales. The Captur SUV was based on the M0 platform, which is part of the Nissan-Renault partnership and also underpins the likes of the Renault Duster and the Nissan Terrano.

The diesel unit, on the other hand, came in the form of a 1.5-litre unit churning out 108bhp and 240Nm of peak torque, paired with a six-speed manual transmission.
