Chevrolet had launched the facelifted Captiva in the Korean market early this year and showcased it at the Geneva motor show as well. Now, it has introduced the facelifted car here but without any ceremony.
In terms of styling, the car gets a new lower bumper, reshaped grille and refreshed fog lamps up front. At the rear, it gets LED tail-lamps and a restyled bumper that now houses chromed exhaust pipes. It gets new 18-inch alloy wheels as well. On the inside, the updates include new seat upholstery (higher trims come with the option of leather covers as well) and a redesigned multimedia screen. The rear seats are heated now and ambient lighting has also been revised. Higher variants also come with keyless go feature.
In terms of features, the facelifted car comes with black interiors as opposed to the lighter shade seen in the earlier Captiva, standard sunroff on the LTZ variant, rear parking sensors, cruise control, rain sensing wipers, dual-zone climate control, stereo with eight speakers, automatic level ride suspension, six airbags, ABS with EBD and descent control system, among other things.
Mechanicals see the 2.2-litre diesel motor – showcased at the Auto Expo 2012 and previously available only with automatic transmission – now also available with a new six-speed manual transmission. While the manual transmission equipped version is a two-wheel-drive, the automatic version drives all wheels. The 2.2-litre is good for 184bhp and 43.24kgm. The 2.0-litre diesel engine has been discontinued.
The facelifted Chevrolet Captiva is brought here as a CBU.
