The attractive three-dimensional headlamps, turn signal integrated exterior mirrors, front fender air intake ports, and grab-type door handles, gives the Captiva a contemporary ambience that is on par with many luxury makes. And if you’re on a sports aficionado like me, I bet you'll be blown away with the Captiva's twin-exhaust tailpipes.
Space is not a problem with the Captiva. It offers plenty of interior space for up to seven people to ride in full comfort. The generous legroom and seat spacing means that even the longest trips won’t cramp up your style. Both the second and the third seat rows can also be folded onto the floor for huge cargo loads. Heck, you can even put your whole bicycle inside.
In the driver's seat, all control buttons are are placed within your reach and intelligently laid-out. Chevy has also put in an adjustable steering column that alters rake and reach.
The Captiva is powered by a 2.0 liter CRDi diesel engine with turbo intercooler that delivers 148 hp at 4,000 rpm with a decent torque of 310 Nm at 2000 rpm. This power plant provides great response and torque yet maintain a fuel efficient performance. Its innovative 5-speed tiptronic automatic transmission not only enhances fuel economy, but also reduces engine revolution and stress. Handling wise, grip and stopping power are ensured by its Electronic Stability Program (ESP) that enhances the stability during slippery situations. The modern system of Captiva features a number of additional functions such as the Traction Control System, HDCS (Hill Descent Control System) which improves manoeuvring on tight curves.
