The top-end Platine variant, which is exclusive to India, is priced at Rs 13.88 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). These are introductory prices and will be hiked after some time. This not only makes it more premium than the Duster, but also its rivals like the the Hyundai Creta. Though the Captur shares its platform and most of its features with the Duster, a lot of attention has been paid to its design, which makes it command a premium over the conventional SUV. The dual-tone colours further command a premium of Rs 17,000.
