The BS6 norms have become mandatory in India since April 1, 2020. Most manufacturers have either updated their line-up to meet the norms or discontinued what could not be updated. Same goes with Renault, the brand has already updated the rest of its product range to comply with the emission norms including models such as the Duster, Kwid and the Triber.
Last year there were some spy pictures revealed of Renault testing a BS6-compliant version of the Captur compact SUV. In those spy images, it was clearly visible that an emission testing device was strapped onto the rear of the test vehicle. All this indicates that Renault is updating the Captur to comply with the new emission norms. However, we are expecting that the company will be launching the updated Captur once the current lockdown due to the COVID-19 is lifted.
The old Renault Captur featured a huge grille with a large Renault badge, a chrome top strip that connects the full-LED headlamps and C-Shaped LED fog light units integrated into the bumper. The SUV also featured 17-inch crystal cut alloy wheels which were almost true to the concept.
On the inside, the Captur got a dual-tone black and white theme. Higher-spec models also got gold and white inserts. The instrument cluster sports a twin-pod design along with a digital speedo. Additionally, the car also got Bluetooth connectivity, voice recognition, and navigation support.
Safety-wise, the Renault Captur was equipped with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, Electronic Stability Control, Hill Start Assist and Brake Assist (BA). We expect the upcoming BS6 Renault Captur to retain all the current features with a few tweaks here and there.
The BS4 Renault Captur was offered with a 1.5-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. However, the petrol engine will be updated to meet the emission norms, while the oil burner will be discontinued. The petrol unit produces 105hbp of power and 142Nm of peak torque and was mated to a five-speed manual gearbox only.
Thoughts On The BS6 Renault Captur
To be honest the Captur is a good looking compact SUV and to ensure it gets a fighting chance Renault will pack the new Captur with a host of features which along with its contemporary European styling.
