Renault Captur – Top things that make it a worry for its Competitors

Posted on

The French automaker, Renault, is all set to launch one of its highly-rated Captur SUV in India. It has already been unveiled and is most likely to be launched during the festive seasons in October. The SUV crossover was unwrapped for the first time in Moscow last year and is currently available in the European market.

The Indian market is flooded with foreign automobile vehicles and it tops the priority list of most of the foreign companies who are looking to expand their portfolio in order to attain huge profit. India is about to become the third largest automotive market in the world and with the growing taste of SUVs among the Indians, many companies are piling their hopes in the segment.

Renault India has followed the trend and is looking forward to the launch of the all new Renault Captur SUV. The Indian version of the car is expected to receive some updates in the designing elements and feature list from the European spec model. It is designed to attract more buyers and the company is relying heavily on the product for a good performance in the market, especially after it garnered huge profits in the European model.

The India-bound model will have to directly face the rivals like Maruti Suzuki S-Cross, Honda WRV, Jeep Compass and Hyundai Creta. It has got many goodies as compared to its competitors to boast-off. So, here we will discuss the top features of the upcoming SUV, which will make it a threat to the rivals.

Freshness in Design

The Indian-spec of the Renault Captur is built on the globally famous M0 platform and borrows its styling from the European counterpart. It offers a fresh look with significant updates in the styling to stand out from its rivals. The smooth flow of the design, along with a sporty aesthetic, makes it an instant crowd puller. It features an aggressive looking front profile, which offers a newly designed large grille, a sculpted bumper and a C-shaped LED DRLs, embedded on the fog lamps area. The side profile looks to be well designed with rightly placed creases and curves and sports 17-inch alloy wheels. It is going to be a real treat for your eyes with rear-end doing a fair justice to the attractive design of the model. It features a coupe-ish rear-end for improved aerodynamic and comes with an LED tail-lights with a ripple effect. The rear end boxy and rear diffusers. It also offers a ground clearance of 210mm, which is the highest ground clearance from Renault in any of its product. Moreover, it is going to be longer and wider than its competitors.

Among its competitors, the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross is simply designed, with a classy approach. For this reason, it lacks the styling punch that could make it an urban-centric car. On the other hand, the Honda WR-V is too much of an edgy car, we feel. The character lines are a bit too prominent which make it sharp, but maybe …

What Does the Diesel Ban Mean for HGVs?

Posted on

The world of driving is changing a lot at the moment. There are driverless HGVs being tested all over the UK and Tesla is working on electric HGVs too – with some already on the roads, albeit not for general sale right now. It’s not easy to be a fleet owner right now – it’s almost at the stage of Betamax vs VHS – what’s the right investment for your company? Well, one thing’s certain – it’s not diesel. “The government in the UK wants to completely get rid of diesel by 2040 and it’s starting with a plan to remove diesel cars from the road – with HGVs most likely not far behind” warns a training supervisor at HGV Driver Training Centre.

Air Pollution and Diesel

Michael Gove instituted the measure as a part of his work as Environmental Secretary, to tackle air pollution. At the moment, the ban is just for cars, but as companies look to update their fleets of HGVs, it makes sense for them to consider getting ahead of the diesel ban, because when diesel is no longer on sale, they will find their current fleet useless (as well as illegal!)

Financial Support to Switch Vehicles

There is a plan to offer financial support for car drivers, offering them a payment of £1000 to £2000 to help with the costs of swapping from a diesel car to a lower emission vehicle or an electric one. HGVs could benefit from a similar scheme, but right now their options are more limited. There aren’t any electric HGVs on general sale so companies don’t know what the logistics of running them are, the common problems, or how much it costs to keep them on the road. These are all questions that wise fleet owners will be ‘waiting and seeing’ rather than forking out for a new fleet themselves. It doesn’t make sense to be the early adopter when right now there aren’t really any penalties for being the one still running diesel. That could change, though.

Disincentives for Diesel Vehicles

Diesel hasn’t been banned yet, though the government does want to make it as unappealing as possible for drivers, and it is doing that through a number of disincentives for those who still drive a diesel. The Toxicity Charge (T-Charge) is due to take effect as of the 1st of October, and there will be other extra expenses added on top of the cost of fuel, as well as parking charges. This should help to undo some of the damage that Blair’s campaign, to get people to switch to diesel, caused. After all, it’s hard to blame people for driving diesel when for many years they were told that it was the environmentally friendly choice. Now, it’s proven to a bad choice – and it’s going to take a while to re-educate people and get them looking to low emission vehicles instead.

It’s unclear when the scrappage scheme will start – if it even does – but …
