New Chevrolet Captiva Review by Expert
It was the year 2008, when just a year back General Motors (GM) introduced their inaugural small hatch in the form of Chevrolet Spark in the country, which was an instant hit. Riding high on the overwhelming success of Spark car, the US based company confidently decided to launch their first proper premium product in India. This vehicle was a brawny global product that carried worldwide accolades. And was none other than Chevrolet Captiva SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle). After the launch the premium SUV gathered optimum attention of the Indian car buyers resulting in decent sales numbers. The company showcased face-lifted version of Captiva at the Auto Expo, after which in June’2012 the New Chevrolet Captiva was formally launched.

Here in India, it competes with Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner, and Mahindra XUV 500.

The face of the New Chevrolet Captiva now looks aggressive, against earlier sober. The chrome lined grille is split into two, which is new grille design for all Chevrolet cars these days, and amid sits the Chevy badge. The redesigned bumper now has spherical fog lamps on both sides that appear neat. Inside large Chevrolet Captiva cabin there are pretty rare changes, but real stunning ones. The dashboard is very well done with no cheap plastic in the making along with sharp looking centre console. The 7-inch Navigation screen increases research on the go. The other class leading convenient features include new instrument cluster, electrically operated parking brake alongside many handy aspects on the floor console. The safety elements offered with New Chevrolet Captiva are sufficient enough for the security and protection of all the seven occupants in the car.
