The compact crossover Renault Captur (not to be confused with the Kaptur model for Russia) is a very popular car in the segment of compact crossovers and almost the main factor of the French company's consolidation in the European region.
Therefore it would look strange if the automaker did not decide to consolidate its location in this segment. The concern intends to launch production of a new model, which by analogy with Captur will take place in the segment of oversized crossover.
This was reported by the head of the Spanish plant, which is assembling Captur, Rafael Vidal. He refused to comment on the decision of the leadership, but only said that the car will be assembled on the same line as Captur. Most likely, the second model will become "stretched" Captur, to which will add the prefix Grand in the title.
Last year, Renault said it would allocate an investment of 600 million euros to the Spanish plant. According to Mr. Vidal, some of these funds will be used to upgrade the conveyor capacity. At the same time, the total production capacity of the plant (250 thousand cars per year) will not be increased, just other models, except for the new crossover, will be collected here less.
According to the authoritative statistical agency, in the first half of this year, Renault Captur became the best-selling crossover (112586 cars).
We remind you that in the company "TransLyuks" the lineup of Renault cars available for rent is represented only by the model Renault Duster, but we are interested in updating the park, including using the new Captur model.
