2013 Chevrolet Captiva gets fresh look

Engine Capability

The Chevrolet Captiva is powered by either a 2.4 litre Ecotec engine with variable valve timing that produces 123 kW and 230 Nm of torque, or a common rail direct injection 2.2 litre diesel engine that produces 135 kW with 400 Nm of torque. Both units are the latest generation engines from Chevrolet that offer exceptional economy during operation.

Combined cycle fuel economy is rated at 8.8-litres/100km for the front wheel drive 2.4 litre model and 8.0-litres/100km for the 2.2 litre diesel all-wheel drive model.

The Captiva 2.4 LT with front wheel drive is available with a choice of 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed automatic with electronic control, while the Captiva 2.2 LTZ has a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with on-demand four-wheel-drive.

Enhanced Styling Features

As before, Chevrolet has continued to revamp the Captiva with contemporary styling enhancements. New design features across the range of 2.4 LT FWD (Front Wheel Drive) manual and automatic and the top of the range 2.2 LTZ AWD (All Wheel Drive) models include a refreshed front bumper, fog lamp surrounds and grille, a revised rear bumper, exhaust outlets, and a new set of LED taillights.

Furthermore, the Chevrolet Captiva variants now feature a 'touch-pad' tailgate mechanism and passenger seat belt warning, while dual-zone climate control air-conditioning is standard on the 2.2 LTZ AWD and available as an option on the 2.4 LT manual and automatic models. The flagship 2.2 turbodiesel LTZ model gains keyless start system as well as illuminated door-sill covers, a tyre pressure monitor, and engineers have fiddled with the final drive ratio to improve acceleration.

The entry-level 2.4 petrol LT model comes optional with a new Luxury Package that adds an on-board computer and dual-zone climate control systems to the model.
