French carmaker debuted in crossover segment with Captur vehicle, which had its pros and cons. Now, we expect bigger models, as 2017 Renault Grand Captur i being prepared for premiere. First spy shots had been revealed, but these haven’t spoken a lot of. We know new version is larger than base Captur, and except that, there are no considerable differences involving these two siblings. The 2017 Grand Captur will also borrow drivetrains from its smaller predecessor, and it is going to become more like redesigned model, than new vehicle.
2017 Renault Grand Captur Redesign
Since its release in 2013, Captur SUV didn’t must change something on it till now, and that day had come. There wasn’t any story talking about redesign, and 2017 Renault Grand Captur could bring some changes. First of all, new crossover is bigger than predecessor. Except that, under heavy camouflage on the SUV spotted in the streets, there wasn’t seen something else important. Front of the vehicle might be the same, with identical hood lines, grille and bumpers. Headlights also have very same shape as at current Captur. It also had fog lights, which couldn’t be observed on Grand Captur as a consequence of camo, but we are positive these are going to become installed once more. Few lines are noticed, on the side of the body, and front of the crossover gets double arches.
2017 Renault Grand Captur Engine
For new 2017 Renault Grand Captur there could possibly be new engine prepared with 90 hp and 120 pound-feet of torque. This must be TCe 90 powertrain from French carmaker, while bigger TCe 120 is uncertain. At some other vehicles it pumps 120 hp and 140 pound-feet of torque, so if it appears, exact same output are going to be for new Grand Captur. Diesel powered crossover is going to become presented, while hybrid is much less likely. Higher-end models will get more features that could improve hp rating to 150. A 5-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions are going to become available at choice of purchasers.
