TC Euro Cars (TCEC), the authorised dealers of Renault vehicles in Malaysia, today announced the COLOURFULRAYA CONTEST 2018. This is a collaboration with local fashion label EMEL where a special EMEL edition Renault Captur will be given away as the grand prize.The EMEL Captur is an Ivory (body) / Diamond Black (roof) in a one-of-a-kind lace print livery on the outside that reflects the EMEL Raya 2018 Collection theme of Chantilly lace. #ColourfulRaya

In addition to the one-off, special edition Renault Captur as the grand prize, there will be 300 other prizes from Panasonic Beauty and another 100 prizes in the form of baju raya from EMEL. Which is suitable if you like dresses as the EMEL brand is, a ladies fashion brand most of the time. Or you could be in touch with your feminine side. Anyway, regardless on whether you are interested in the Raya Dresses and all, there are over RM200,000 worth of prizes to be won.

Now since this is a motoring blog, I have to explain a little about the EMEL brand. EMEL is the homegrown Malaysian baju raya designer brand and it’s 2018 collection was unveiled at a fashion show in conjunction with the launch of the COLOURFULRAYA CONTEST 2018. I actually attended the launch show but I spent most of my time outside with the Renault Captur. Such was my sacrifice to bring you car pics rather than looking at models parading on the catwalk dressed with EMEL's latest outfits for the upcoming Hari Raya celebrations. Maybe if they were wearing swimsuits it would be a different thing.

Anyway, this is actually a chance for you to actually with the Renault Captur in the first place! The contest is open to members of the public aged 18 years and above and runs from 29th March to 15th May 2018.

How to enter the contest.

To enter, participants can go to or visit participating retail partners Avenue K, Melawati Mall and Parkson (Pavilion, KLCC and Bangi) and scan the relevant QR code to fill out the contest form online.

Alternatively, participants can also access links to the contest through, and No purchase is necessary for participation.

Winners will be determined through a weekly draw. There will be a total of six draws, with 66 prizes to be won each week. The final draw will take place on 16th May with the prize giving ceremony scheduled for 25th May 2018.

“In conjunction with the upcoming Raya celebration, we are excited to collaborate with EMEL to give away an exclusive edition Renault Captur. One lucky winner is going to celebrate a more colourful raya in style this year and I wish the best of luck to all participants,” said Kuan Kim Luen, CEO, TC Euro Cars Sdn Bhd.

The Renault Captur is available in four stylish two-toned colour options – Ivory/Diamond Black (roof), Flame Red/Diamond Black (roof), Arizona Orange/Diamond Black (roof) and Pacific Blue/Ivory (roof). To showcase the various exclusive prints from the EMEL Chantilly lace collection, TCEC also extended the vibrant, eye-catching motifs on each colour option, which were displayed during the fashion show. These were just prepared for the launch event and for the moment, will not be on sale with such motifs.

The Renault Captur Overview

Locally assembled at the Tan Chong Motor Assemblies (TCMA) plant in Segambut, Kuala Lumpur, the Renault Captur is certified as an EEV and offers greater value for money at the price of RM109,000 (on-the-road inclusive of GST, without insurance, for Peninsular Malaysia and private registration).

The chic and versatile Renault Captur blends all the cues of an urban crossover that modern drivers have come to expect. Its expressive exterior styling, dynamic lines and trendy two-toned vibrant colours are sure to turn heads on the road. Spirited performance and excellent fuel efficiency is achieved through the turbocharged TCe 120 engine, which delivers more torque than a 1.8L normally-aspirated engine.

Inside, Renault has also paid a lot of attention to detail. For example, the seats come with attractive zippable covers that are removable for easy washing while a reversible boot floor with carpeting on one side and plastic on the other is a practical and useful feature in a tropical climate like Malaysia.

The Renault Captur has been the best-selling crossover model in its class in Europe, with global sales of over 700,000 units.

“The Captur’s trendy design, European safety and comfort standards, high driving position and easy manoeuvrability reflects its great urban appeal, ideal for today’s active modern lifestyle,” said Kuan.

Standard features and safety equipment include:

·         Auto Headlights and Rain Sensors
·         MediaNav with 7” touchscreen, AUX, USB, Bluetooth, Navigation and Reverse camera

·         Eco mode for additional fuel efficiency of up to 10 percent
·         Four airbags – dual frontal and dual head/thorax side
·         Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with traction control
