There are still units of the Renault Captur available at the RM98,000 introductory price (on-the-road without insurance), but distributor TC Euro Cars says that there are limited units left, and is issuing a final call.

The special price was announced along with the rollout of the locally-assembled Captur in April – the CKD Captur’s regular price is RM109k, which means there are savings of RM11k to be had. The RM109k sticker price for the Segambut-assembled Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) is RM8,200 lower than the original CBU imported car.

“We believe that the Renault Captur is indeed a home-run. It’s stylish, versatile and offers a great safety package, now with at an even better value-for-money deal of RM98,000,” said Kuan Kim Luen, CEO of TC Euro Cars.

The Clio-based Captur, Europe’s best-selling B-segment SUV, is powered by a TCe 120 1.2 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, producing 120 PS at 4,900 rpm and 190 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. Drive is transmitted to the front wheels via a six-speed Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) automatic transmission. Fuel consumption is 5.4 litres per 100 km in the European combined cycle.

Standard equipment includes auto headlamps and wipers; 17-inch two-tone rims (205/55 tyres); keyless entry and push start; MediaNav head unit with seven-inch touchscreen, AUX, USB, Bluetooth and navigation; and a reverse camera among other things. Four airbags, ESC, hill start assist and Isofix child seat mounts make up the safety kit. The kit list is identical to the CBU car.

Unique and practical features include removable seat covers (with zips, can be washed), a removable and reversible (carpet on one side, plastic on the other) multi-position boot floor, a 377 litres of boot space (expandable to 455 litres with sliding and 60:40 folding rear seats) and plenty of cabin stowage areas, including door bins that can take 1.5 litre drink bottles.

The Captur is known for funky two-tone colour schemes, and the CKD car has four options – the new Flame Red with Diamond Black roof, Arizona Orange with Diamond Black roof, Pacific Blue with Ivory roof, and Ivory with a Diamond Black roof.

Like all mainstream (non-RS) Renaults sold in Malaysia, the Captur comes with a five-year manufacturer’s warranty with unlimited mileage.
