DSC098431024.thumb.jpg.d10a27f3faa6214bf8f4be9d9de652ac.jpgsgCarMart has gone live once again, and this time, we actually got to launch a car exclusively on our Facebook Live page.

The car in question of course, is the much-anticipated all new Renault Captur! With more than 1.2 million units sold globally since the first generation was launched in 2013, this all new second generation Captur builds upon its best-in-class predecessor, with plenty of power and sweet personalisation options to boot, making it perfect for those looking for a punchy SUV with a little French flair.

This car wasn't the only thing new at the livestream, for Julian was also joined by a new Guest Host, Chiou Huey from King Kong Media!

Goodies and more!

There may have been plenty that's new at this live event, but those that have joined us at our previous Facebook Live shows before will be glad to know that the awesome freebies which have become a mainstay have been retained.

DSC098771024.thumb.jpg.08419707088bdfaaf003bbd004da145b.jpgThis time, all the viewers had to do to join in the lucky draw was to comment 'CAPTURNOW' and like and share the livestream. Up to four lucky winners were chosen to win an exclusive Renault goodie bag, containing items including a classy little notebook and a modern water bottle, worth up to $128!

Two lucky viewers even got to experience a weekend driveaway in the all new Renault Captur!

A new and powerful contender

But back on to the main attraction. With up to 430 live viewers already eagerly clamoring in the comment section to see the new car, both hosts delayed no further with the unveiling. Off with the covers!

DSC098641024.thumb.jpg.cda2c09fb80c833bd5befce4c0a62767.jpgThe all new Captur impresses with its muscular architecture, bold SUV stance, as well as distinctive C-shaped LED lighting signature that allows you to arrive with a presence.

Julian also pointed out the new air deflectors, which channels air across the side of the car to keep turbulence to a minimum, and its active air shutters housed within the front grille, which optimises engine performance by regulating the temperature with the right airflow. This means that you get a car that slices right through the air, keeping your fuel costs to a minimum.

The all new Renault Captur will also ensure you are always first off at the traffic lights, thanks to its power-packed 1.3-litre turbocharged engine that puts out an impressive class-leading 128bhp and 240Nm of high torque.

Well, thanks to the Captur's nine different exterior colour options, you're sure to be able to get your car in any hue you desire, be it a bold and expressive red, or a bright and cheeky blue.

And of course, if you're in the market looking for an SUV, you'll also be looking for space and practicality. And here, the Captur once again delivers, not only with its plentiful passenger space at the rear, but also with its provision of USB ports and air-conditioning vents.

But it's much more than just space that is on offer here. The driver-centric cockpit of the Renault Captur features a largest-in-class 9.3-inch tablet-style touchscreen and a 10.25-inch instrumental panel.

DSC098581024.thumb.jpg.e11ee87af2292f31bfe56e34f0fd5a5a.jpgThe cabin is also highly customisable, with up to eight different ambient lighting colours allowing you to set the car up according to any mood. And that's also complimented with three different driving modes on offer, so you can tailor your drive exactly as you like it as well!

Also new in the cabin of the Renault Captur is the E-shifter. A common gear knob design found in premium-makes, the E-shifter is mounted on a 'floating console', meaning you get additional storage space at the bottom of the console

DSC099631024.thumb.jpg.e8d7f2cdad356629e1ab94f7f7258b5a.jpgJulian also demonstrated to Chiou Huey just how easy it is to utilise the sliding rear bench in the boot. With up to 160mm of adjustability on offer, the all new Renault Captur can further extend its already spacious boot up to a class-leading 536 litres to swallow bulky items. Handy for all those shopping trips!

But there's more!

After the presentation of the new car, our viewers also got an opportunity to ask questions about the all new Renault Captur and get another close-up look at any features they might be curious about!

But even if you missed the livestream, do not fret. The same goodie bags are available exclusively for all those who head down to test drive the new Renault Captur at the Renault Showroom!

This new model is being offered at special early bird launch prices.

With only a 30% downpayment required to secure your own Captur, you'd be silly not to head down to 28 Leng Kee road now for a test drive!

    ComfortDelGro taxi driver whips out metal pipe during road rage

    We thought ComfortDelGro taxi drivers should be the most well-mannered taxi drivers on our island based on service standards, but this driver's actions made us stop and think. What made us think otherwise? This video of a very pissed-off taxi driver confronting the cam car driver for sounding his horn at him. Rewinding back to how it all started, the cam car can be heard sounding his horn at the taxi driver after a passenger gets off at a sheltered crossing. The taxi driver then proceeds to move off slowly, triggering the cam car driver to toot his horn in impatience.  The taxi driver does not react to the first horn which leads to a few more horns from cam car. This is where it gets interesting. The taxi driver's pissed off at this point, he takes his time to slowly drive into the carpark and stops on the second level to confront the cam car driver. We don't really know what happened after the taxi driver got off his taxi since most of the clip is on mute. Thankfully, no one got hurt in this road rage incident.  Could this have been avoided if the cam car just overtook the taxi at the shelter? Let us know! Not an isolated incident That is not the end of the story though. Someone else has also been a victim to the same taxi driver's road rage.    



    Man causes a long queue by pumping petrol 'machiam' like he in JB

    Remember the good old days where you could bring your whole family across the border and enjoy everything our neighbouring country has to offer? With the affordable prices of petrol, topping up your gas tank before coming back to Singapore was something no one would skip. But there are some people who go a little too far to save a couple of dollars. Like this! 😂 Which brings us to video below. I'm scratching my head as to why this driver is trying to ensure that every cubic meter of fuel is stored inside his car. Given that our petrol prices in Singapore are exorbitant now.  A little bit of Myth busting Myth - Do I really save money if I am able to top up my car to the brim? 🤔 One of the Quora-ist mentions that it is insignificant to have the petrol tank pump to the brim. My personal take on the matter The whole shaking action is unnecessary. Once you hear the nozzle click, it means that the next time you'll have to refuel would be in 5 to 6 days, give or take. Shaking the car does not mean you'll extend that time significantly. Furthermore, over-filling your fuel tank could potentially result in damage to your vehicle’s charcoal cannister, which is part of its vapour recovery or Evaporative Recovery System.   If you really want to save fuel, drive like a saint and don't over-rev your car when driving. Always plan your route ahead and leave the house early so you will not drive like a madman.  Peace out! ✌️  



    Malaysian truck driver might have escaped a fine and demerits by some miracle

    So a quick disclaimer before we continue - We don't know what might happen after the Traffic Police gets alerted to this video evidence, or they might have even stopped the truck driver after the video got cut off. But what's happening in the video seems rather peculiar.  Shared on SG Road Vigilante's page is this video of a Malaysian truck doing more than 90km/h on lane 1 on PIE heading towards Tuas on the 22nd of February 2021. Sometime later in the video, the Traffic Police closed in in their car and it looked like they had the intention to notify the Scania truck of its offence.  Naturally, most of us would go "haha the truck sure get it from the Police!" but no, nothing happened! What a miracle for the truck driver. But, as I mentioned at the start of this post, the Traffic Police might act after watching the video. It's a little too early to celebrate yet Mr Truck Driver. Here's what some netizens had to say about the matter. What do we think? Well, if he got off without any punishment, he should consider himself lucky and not do it again.        



    Tiny pothole wrecks a BMW 2 Series convertible

    TL:DR – A BMW 2 Series convertible goes over a small, unassuming pothole/manhole that causes its rear end to flip up, lose some parts from its undercarriage and swerve into another lane.   It's incredible how a small pothole/manhole can cause thousands of dollar's worth of damage to a car. Here's an example recorded on a video forwarded many times on WhatsApp groups. From the footage, we know that this incident happened on 11th April 2021, Sunday around 5pm. As to where this is, I have a feeling it might be somewhere around Woodlands. But, if you have any idea, do let me know, and I'll update the article accordingly to warn fellow road users where to avoid. Update: Thank you everyone who identified the location. It's in Yishun.   Poor BMW If you hit the pause button upon the point of impact, you'll notice that bits and pieces fall out from the undercarriage of the 2 Series. That’s as unlucky as this guy I reckon those parts are not going to be cheap to replace or repair. The pothole/manhole This image circulated together with the video. I'm assuming the cam car driver got out of the car and snapped a photo of the pothole/manhole.
