    by ahmad on Wednesday, Sep 27 2017

    The Indian compact SUV market is highly competitive with premium models like the Hyundai Creta, Tata Hexa and the Jeep Compass. This has resulted in the once massively popular Renault Duster to be a rather modest model. The French car maker is thus, bringing the Duster’s more premium sibling – Captur to India. The Captur is based on the Duster’s platform and shares the same powertrain. However, its design is completely different and much more premium, and so is its interior.
