Renault has introduced the new Kaptur in Moscow, Russia.

Looking virtually identical to the Captur, the Kaptur is slightly different as it has been designed specifically for the needs of Russian consumers.  The company was coy on specifics but noted the Kaptur has an increased ride height, a heavy duty suspension, and an available four-wheel drive system.  The crossover has also been designed to be a "genuine all-terrain vehicle" so it has been given approach and departure angles of 20 and 31 degrees, respectively.

On the styling front, the crossover has a familiar front fascia with a prominent grille that has a large Renault emblem.  The Kaptur also has sweptback headlights, a sculpted hood, and plastic body cladding.  Other highlights include C-shaped daytime running lights and three-dimensional LED taillights.

Renault didn't have much to say about the interior but the model has a three-spoke steering wheel, circular air vents, and metallic accents.  The model also comes standard with power windows / locks, a keyless entry system, and a push-button ignition. Customers can order an optional Media Nav infotainment system which has a seven-inch display and Bluetooth connectivity.  Since Russian winters can be brutal, the model can also be equipped with heated front seats, a heated windshield, and a remote starter.

The Kaptur will go on sale in Russia this summer and the model will be built at Renault’s Moscow factory.
