Looking merely like a big brother of the Renault Captur, the Renault Kaptur is a lot more different than what images suggest. The Renault Captur is based on the Renault Clio Mk4‘s platform (B-platform), whereas the Renault Kaptur is based on the Dacia Duster‘s B0/Logan platform. The Kaptur isn’t planned to be sold in Europe.

According to the Brazilian publication’s report, the Renault Kaptur will be launched in Brazil with the 2.0-litre 16V flex-fuel engine from the Renault Duster in H1 2017. It will have the multilink rear suspension used by the Renault Duster and the Renault Duster Oroch. In H2 2017, a Nissan-sourced 1.6-litre engine will be introduced as an option. While a continuously variable transmission will be common to both engine models, only the 2.0-litre engine model will be available with a four-wheel drive system, and that too optionally.
