The compact crossover Renault Captur (not to be confused with the Kaptur model for Russia) is a very popular car in the compact crossover segment and is almost the main factor securing the French company 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 announced by the head of the Spanish factory, which is building the Captur, Rafael Vidal. He refused to comment on the decision of the management, and only said that the car would be assembled on the same line as the Captur. Most likely, the second model will be “stretched” Captur, to which will be added the prefix Grand in the title.
Last year, Renault announced that it would invest 600 million euros for this Spanish plant. According to Mr. Vidal, part of these funds will be used to upgrade the capacity of the conveyor. 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 collect less here.
According to a reputable statistical agency, in the first half of this year, the 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.
