Renault and TC Euro Cars (TCEC) have just rolled-out the locally-assembled Renault Captur, built at the Tan Chong Motor Assemblies (TCMA) plant in Segambut, Kuala Lumpur.
Malaysia is the only country besides Renault’s facility in Spain to assemble the Captur, which is a step forward in cementing the company’s continued commitment to the local market.
The Captur is Renault’s third locally-assembled model in Malaysia. The TCMA facility has passed stringent evaluations and quality standards set by Renault, to ensure the plant meets Renault-certified specifications.
The locally assembled Renault Captur retains all the specifications and features found in the fully-imported version, but is now available in a new two-toned colour combination of Flame Red body with Diamond Black roof (pictured below), besides the existing Arizona Orange body and Diamond Black roof, Pacific Blue body and Ivory roof , and Ivory body with Diamond Black roof. Customers can also opt for interior leather seats at an additional cost.
Under the hood, power is supplied by a 1.2-litre TCe 120 four-cylinder turbocharged engine that churns out 118hp and 190Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a 6-speed EDC automatic transmission.
In terms of fuel economy, this spirited crossover offers exceptional fuel efficiency of up to 5.4L/100km and is now certified as an EEV (Energy Efficient Vehicle).
With the introduction of the locally-assembled Captur, the crossover is now more affordable with a price tag of RM109,000 (on-the-road inclusive of GST, without insurance, for Peninsular Malaysia and private registration), which RM8,200 cheaper compared to the fully-imported Captur.
The locally-assembled Renault Captur will officially be available for sale starting 19 April 2017 and the first 100 customers to place an order will enjoy an early bird rebate of RM11,000 for additional savings.
“Captur has a great urban appeal with its trendy design, European safety and comfort standards, high driving position and easy manoeuvrability. At the new price point, the Captur is a very attractive option for people on-the-go,” said Kuan Kim Luen, CEO, TC Euro Cars Sdn Bhd.
Like all Renault mainstream vehicles, the locally-assembled Captur comes with a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty with unlimited mileage. This warranty is fully backed by Renault and not undertaken by any other insurance companies, which means terms and conditions as well as parts covered are consistent from the first year of ownership to the end of the warranty period.
TCEC is holding a public launch of the locally-assembled Renault Captur on 19 – 23 April 2017 at LG, Oval Concourse, 1 Utama Shopping Centre. Alternatively, interested members of the public can also visit any Renault showroom nationwide on 22-23 April 2017 to take a closer look at and test drive the Renault Captur.
