Thoughts About The Renault Captur BS6 Expected To Launch In India This Month

The Renault Captur, when launched, managed to grab the attention of the buyers in the segment, initially. The SUV appealed to buyers who were looking for a mid-size SUV with subtle looks. However, the attention faded away quickly and failed to make any noticeable impact with the sales numbers for the brand. However, the company aims to bring in more volumes with the upcoming Captur BS6 turbo-petrol variant.
