I have always been a fan of SUVs, and I think the perfect SUV should not just be sturdy in built and smooth to drive but should also look stylish. And for me, RENAULT CAPTUR checks off everything I could possibly have on the list.
Since I prefer to test things for myself before forming an opinion, the chance to have an off-road trip with the CAPTUR during the recent Renault CAPTUR blogger meet, where I was invited, was a perfect opportunity for me to test this car and see for myself whether or not it was as amazing as a lot of people I knew were saying it was.
After touchdown at the Mangalore airport we headed towards Taj, Madikeri for an overnight stay that included a fun and interactive ice-breaking session with the rest of the bloggers.
This Renault CAPTUR drive started the next morning from Coorg, the Scotland of India and ended in the beautiful Mandalpatti. This was my first off-roading experience ever, and the amazing Renault CAPTUR made the journey even more special and worth remembering for me. In spite of the terrain being rough and rocky and it being a hilly area I found driving really easy and fun, thanks to the best in class ground clearance of 210 mm of CAPTUR. After the off-roading exercise in Renault CAPTUR, I was confident that this beast can handle any terrain with ease.
This compact SUV certainly packs a big punch. The exterior looks sporty, and its elegant interiors are an eye candy and add to the appeal of the car. And on steep climbs on our way, its hill climb assist was a great help and made it extremely easy for me to tackle the otherwise challenging terrain. It also has powerful full LED headlamps which consume less power, are brighter and turned out to be extremely helpful in the dark and even when it got foggy outside, increasing visibility which was comforting on that difficult landscape.
Even the boot was quite spacious and I was able to fit my luggage in it with ease. And on the other hand, the leg room I had while driving was large and at the end of our journey my feet felt very relaxed and it didn’t feel like I had driven at all. Another thing that still has me in awe is Renault CAPTUR’s Smart Access Card which has the lock-unlock buttons, a button to open the boot and is the better kind of pocket friendly car key.
And what makes this SUV even more incredible, is the option to personalize it! The beauty of knowing that your car has been customized just the way you wanted it be, is amazing! From roof decal designs to vinyl seat covers, and from chrome embellishments to your choice of color, Renault CAPTUR definitely has everything that can ’Capture your senses’. To be able to customize a car just the way you want it to be, is nothing less than a dream come true for any automobile enthusiast.
This trip was definitely one of the most fun times I have ever had, all thanks to the great people I got to experience it with, and the amazing Renault CAPTUR that was my trusted and stylish companion throughout the journey.
