The Renault Captur will be launched in India by the end of this year and the bookings for the same have already commenced. The token amount has been set at Rs 25,000 and you can book it through their official website or mobile app. We have even driven the diesel version and you can find the link here or by visiting the reviews section on our mobile app. However, the bit we are interested in is that there will be a petrol version of the French automaker’s premium crossover.

It’s showed up on the booking site and we believe that it will be the 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit found in the Duster petrol AT. The engine produces 105bhp/142Nm and is mated to a CVT. In the Duster it is also offered with a manual gearbox but considering the premium positioning of the Captur we believe that it will only be offered in the AT guise.

Given that there is a higher demand for the diesel models, it seems likely that Renault might offer the petrol powered Captur in the fully loaded Platine variant as well as one lower spec model.
