Capturs Are Getting More Popular In Malaysia, Where Is The Second-Gen Already?

The second-gen Captur is more than a year old now, isn't it high time we got it?


When the Renault Captur was first introduced to the Malaysian market way back in 2015, who knew they would be as popular as they are now.

Undoubtedly, the rise of the Captur can be credited to the incredible subscription leasing programme that TC Euro Car created, but it still doesn't take away from the fact that so many Malaysians seem to share a fondness for this cute little French compact SUV.

Seeing the demand for these cars today, somewhere in TC Euro Cars, we're sure they must be planning to bring in the second generation Captur, and to be honest, we can't wait for it to arrive. 

The second-generation Captur was unveiled internationally in 2019. It has 85 percent new parts and now sits on the new generation CMF-B modular platform, shared amongst the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance.

Apart from the lighter architecture around the axles, hood, and bodywork, Renault also claims that the car has greater acoustic comfort, credited to better insulation around the engine area.

As far as the exterior goes, the all-new Captur now adopts Renault's latest design language with its signature C-shaped LED daytime running lights. LED headlights also come as standard fitment across the range. The taillights are C-shaped, which helps accentuate the car's width. The Captur's distinctive contrasting roof colour remains, which helps familiarise the SUV.

The second-gen Captur also gets two wide air deflectors in front of the wheel arches, limiting air turbulence and improving the Captur's aerodynamic performance. Unlike the predecessor's disc and drum brakes combination, the all-new Captur will now get all-round discs.

Renault has also revamped the interior of its crossover, now with a completely new dashboard design with a floating-style infotainment display called the "Smart Cockpit". The infotainment system runs on Renault's Easy Link software, which includes support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Easy Link infotainment system also includes 4G LTE connectivity and a built-in navigation system by TomTom with real-time traffic updates.

Similar to the 5th-gen Clio, the all-new Captur gets a digital display in the instrument cluster, available in sizes between 7.0- and 10.2-inches.

At its launch in 2019, a range of petrol and diesel engines were made available for the all-new Captur, with varying output levels. For the petrol engines, output figures range from 100 hp to 155 hp, while diesel output figures range from 95 hp to 115 hp.

The most powerful petrol engine is the TCe 130, a 1.3-litre turbocharged engine that does 155 hp and 270 Nm, hooked up to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. Compared to the current Captur in Malaysia, that's a bump up of 35 hp and 65 Nm of torque.  

As for its safety equipment, the all-new Renault Captur can be specified with Renault’s Easy Drive system, which includes:

  • Highway and Traffic Jam Companion
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go
  • Automatic Dipped Headlights
  • Active Emergency Braking
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Traffic Signal Recognition with Speeding Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Easy Park Assist
