New Renault Captur Introduced in Malaysia, Locally-Assembled in Segambut
TC Euro Cars today launched the new Captur, Europe’s best-selling crossover, which features a sportier, more assertive exterior with new bi-toned colours and an interior further refined for enhanced quality. The new Renault Captur builds on the model’s original success, including its striking two-toned finish. In addition to the popular Flame Red (body) / Diamond Black (roof) colour option, the new Captur is now available in three new body colours: Atacama Orange, Ocean Blue and Pearl White body colours, all paired with a Diamond Black roof.
Pricing for the new Renault Captur remains at RM109,000 (on-the- road inclusive of GST, without insurance, for Peninsular Malaysia and private registration), with an additional RM900 (excluding GST) for the Flame Red and Pearl White colour options, which includes kicking plates and a trunk tray. Locally assembled at the Tan Chong Group plant at Segambut, the new Captur is EEV certified and offers excellent fuel efficiency.
Powered by Renault’s turbocharged TCe 120 engine, the new Captur continues to deliver the performance and acceleration of a normally-aspirated 1.8L engine. Mated to a six-speed Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) transmission, the spirited crossover is capable of delivering maximum power of 120 PS at 4,900 rpm and peak torque of 190 Nm from as low as 2,000rpm while maintaining exceptional fuel efficiency of up to 5.4L/100km.
The refreshed Renault Captur also retains its extensive kit of equipment and features while delivering on excellent driving dynamics, from road holding and agile handling to engine response and driver aids that have helped Captur become the global success that it is. The Captur is one of Renault’s most in-demand models with 940,000 units sold globally to-date. It has also been the top-selling model in its segment in Europe, a testament of Renault’s 120 years of know how in design, production, engineering and technical expertise.
A bolder, more assertive look
Starting at the front, the new Renault Captur now incorporates the brand’s signature C-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) while the grille has been redesigned to more closely resemble that of Renault’s other crossovers, notably its bigger sibling, the Kadjar. The upgraded Captur also sports a new 17-inch alloy wheel design and LED wing mirror indicators.
More refined interior appointments, user-friendly and connected
Designers not only refreshed the external appearance of the new Captur to be in line with more modern models in the range like the Koleos, they also paid close attention to enhancing the quality and finish of the cabin. More refined than before, the interior benefits from the use of high-quality plastics, and a foam-backed dashboard. The black combi-leather seats, combi-leather door finishers, redesigned gear lever and door panels offer a more modern and sophisticated cabin.
The new Renault Captur carries over the extensive equipment and specifications that helped forge the model’s reputation as a versatile and user-friendly vehicle. Cabin space and seat configuration can also be adapted to meet various capacity needs with a sliding rear bench seat that is foldable 60:40, which also provides ample boot space from 377 litres to a maximum of 1,235 litres.
The new Renault Captur is fully connected through the MediaNav multimedia system with a 7-inch touchscreen, AUX, USB, Bluetooth and navigation.
