New Chevrolet Captiva
Monday, September 13, 2010 5:04 PM
NOT FOR NORTH AMERICA SALE.
From GM:




-Fresh, sporty exterior look with bold Chevrolet face
-Enhanced interior with up-market look and feel
-Adaptable interior with five or seven seats and excellent storage space
-New, powerful and efficient engine line-up
-New manual and automatic six-speed transmissions
-Front- or all-wheel drive
-One of four Chevrolet world debuts at Paris Motor show

The new Captiva SUV will be seen for the first time at the Paris Motor Show, sporting a new front end design, a range of enhancements to the interior and new engines and transmissions. Captiva will be one of four Chevrolet world premieres.

Captiva is Chevrolet's full-blooded sports SUV with confident and dynamic new styling and active on-demand all-wheel drive system that distributes power as needed.
At the same time the new Captiva retains the advantages of its adaptable, theatre-style seating in three rows which comfortably accommodates up to seven passengers.

The Captiva has won many friends for its exterior design since its launch in 2006, and with the new model it just got even better. A number of features are immediately noticeable when viewing the new Captiva from the front, adding up to its athletic stance: the re-shaped and sharply sculptured hood, a new larger grille with its dual-opening and the Chevrolet 'bow-tie' sited proudly in the middle, and the prism style headlamps and integrated LED turn signals on the outside rearview mirrors.

Moving round to the front fenders, the side air-vents now take on a more angular shape to emphasize the new Captiva's sporting intent, while from the A pillars back the Captiva retains its handsome profile, characterized by a sleek, rising shoulder line.

Setting the new Captiva's body off perfectly are the new exterior color palette and the accentuated wheel arches which will accommodate wheel sizes of 17 to 19 inches.

It's under the Captiva's new hood that many changes are also taking place, with no less than four new powerful engines that will come standard with a new manual or automatic six-speed transmission for a powerful, smooth ride. The new engine line-up, which is comprised of two gasoline engines (2.4L and 3.0L) and two turbo-diesel variants (2.2L), incorporates a host of advanced technologies aimed at delivering an optimal balance of performance and fuel economy.

With the introduction of a new 3.0 liter 258 hp V6 gasoline engine with direct injection and variable valve timing, the Captiva will be one of the most powerful compact SUVs on the market, while the new 2.2 liter common rail turbo-charged diesel units will be available with either 163 or 184 hp outputs. Rounding off the new line-up is a 2.4 liter dual overhead cam gasoline unit with variable valve timing, rated at 171 hp. Both, the 2.2 liter turbo-diesels as well as the 2.4 liter gasoline engine can be ordered in front- or all-wheel-drive configurations.

The new Captiva's chassis has been re-tuned to further enhance vehicle dynamics, improving cornering, roll characteristics and ride feel. With Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS) and Braking Assist System (BAS) standard, as well as front-, side- and curtain airbags, the Captiva provides a high level of safety.

Climb aboard the new Captiva and driver and passengers will still be welcomed by that airy and spacious interior, with storage space that is among best in class and with the option of either 5 or 7 seats.

The Captiva's upgraded interior now features an array of new finishes and textures including all-new seat fabrics and interior décor appointments to give the car a more up-market feel and look. Designers have put to good use some of the elements featured on other new Chevrolet models, such as the ice-blue back lighting and the 'wrap-round' design of the front fascia which flows into the front driver's and passenger doors creating the dual-cockpit look.

The new Captiva features Hill Start Assist, eliminating "roll-back" on hills and an electric park brake that opens up space for further storage in the center console, including two 1-liter cup holders.

The new Captiva's audio system includes Aux-in, USB-port and Bluetooth connectivity. Passengers will enjoy their audio experience all the more thanks to improved acoustic engineering resulting in reduced road, wind and engine noise. Captiva can be ordered with a touch-screen navigation system with rear view camera for parking assistance.

Captiva offers a lot of SUV for its price: powerful, yet efficient engines, all-wheel drive capabilities, roominess and versatility for up to seven passengers. Its launch in Europe is scheduled for spring 2011.

That look's way to much like the saturn vue and pretty much every other cookie UV on the road.

with third row seating, it wouldn't be in the class of the 'nox and terrain/vue. It would be a direct competition for the chevy venture, hence, why it isn't going to be sold here.

Hmmm, i don't know. As cool looking as this is, i think we got the better mini-ute. The Equinox is much better looking IMO

For the record folks, the Captiva is the updated version of the second-gen Saturn Vue.

second gen vue = current equinox right? I'm a big fan of the current equinox (and the vue), as well as the traverse (and outlook from saturn). How would this car fit into the line up anyways? If it's an "upgraded" equinox, the GM is quite stupid for not bringing it here. I'm seeing more mini-utes on the road these days...

I like it, it looks almost exactly like My wife's new Equinox though.
