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.
