Although you might think the Renault Captur in the showrooms of TC Euro Cars (TCEC) is the same as before, it has actually received updates and improvements inside which maintain it as a value-for-money compact crossover.
The infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen has been upgraded with offline and online navigation and internet connectivity. The infotainment system is able to support favourite apps such as JOOX, Waze and many more through connecting to an internet hotspot (when available).
Under the bonnet, is a cleaner, more environment-friendly TCe 120 petrol engine which meets the tougher EURO 6 exhaust emission regulations. The upgraded turbocharged powerplant has performance comparable to a normally-aspirated 1.8-litre engine with as much as 205 Nm of torque from as low as 2000 rpm.
Mated to a 6-speed Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) transmission, the engine is said to give fuel efficiency of almost 17 kms/litre. This figure is helped by the start-stop function which cuts off the engine during extended periods of idling when fuel is wasted unnecessarily.
Specil Edition Captur+
For those who want something a bit more exclusive, TCEC is also offering the Captur+, a new special edition with a number of design enhancements, interior refinement and extra accessories. It is available only in a silver/black two-tone front and rear bumper complementing the Captur’s chic dual-tone body colour.
For enhanced convenience, a first-in-its-class hands-free power tailgate, has been added on the Captur+. With the hands-free power tailgate, even with both arms holding bags, the rear door can be opened with a simple swipe of the foot underneath the rear bumper.
A driving video recorder (DVR) is also fitted as standard and is capable of recording up to 136 minutes of footage in high resolution at 1080p on a 16GB microSD card. The recording will be useful in the event of an incident where there is a dispute about who is in the wrong.
The Captur+ comes with distinctive maroon combination leather seats. The armrest features fine stitch detailing, offers additional storage space and is adjustable for greater comfort and convenience.
Every new Captur and Captur+ comes with the 5-in-Captur aftersales service which offers more cost savings and hassle-free servicing. The package includes free scheduled servicing and maintenance (parts and labour) for 5 years or maximum of 100,000 kms. There’s also a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty with unlimited mileage and other benefits which make ownership more enjoyable and worry-free.
