The facelifted Renault Captur has gone on sale in Malaysia, featuring new cosmetic updates, interior appointment and a value-added maintenance package while still maintaining its previous price tag of RM109,000.
The facelifted model features a redesigned front bumper with C-Shaped Daytime Running Lights and LED foglamps integrated into the lower regions of the bumper. The license plate holder now sits higher up, just below the front grill.
Along the flanks, the re-designed 17-inch alloys fill the arches. Further up, the wing mirrors are slightly larger than the outgoing model.
Round the back, the new Captur sports a re-designed rear bumper and new taillamps that beam a 3D-like graphic signature when illuminated. The trim panel above the license plate holder is also body coloured now, previously being finished in chrome.
Renault Malaysia has also introduced a new colour options – Atacama Orange and Ocean Blue. Two additional optional colours include Pearl White and Flame Red. All body colour options are contrasted with the Diamond Black roof colour.
In terms of convenience features, the new Captur is also offered with a ‘walkaway auto-lock’ now.
On the inside, the new Renault Captur is offered exclusively with combination leather seats, doing away with the previous (removable) fabric seating. Elsewhere, the compartment that resides atop the dashboard has also been redesigned.
There is no difference to the drivetrain of the Captur, still featuring a 1.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder which is good for 120 PS at 4,900 RPM, and delivers 190 Nm of torque at 2,000 RPM. The engine is mated to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
Additionally, Renault Malaysia also offers the new Captur with a 5-year unlimited mileage manufacturer warranty and five-year free maintenance, inclusive of parts and labour. The service also covers 24 hours roadside assistance, free pick-up service for scheduled maintenance and alternative transport arrangements in the event the customer’s car is required to be at the service centre for more than 48 hours.
As before, the new Renault Captur is locally-assembled at the Tan Chong Motor Assemblies plant (TCMA) in Segambut, Kuala Lumpur.
