As one of the most European-like productions of GM, Chevrolet Captiva is an strategic car for the American car maker.

That’s why they put a great effort into upgrading the new edition for 2011. It comes with a new face, new engine lineup and significantly upgraded interior.

The Captiva can now claim it offers the same or even better value as the Japanese crossovers. If anything, it has more character than them and will almost certainly be priced better as well. Let’s go through some of the new stuff this car has to offer…


Starting with the looks, you get a brand-new front-end which is instantly recognizable as a Chevrolet becasue it uses the same sort of design as the new Aveo. The previous model was a bit more elegant, but this one is sportier and funkier.It gets wider presence as well thanks to flared arches which house wheels from 17 to 19 inches.


Inside the cabin, the Captiva can be adopted to seat five or seven passengers and they will be greeted with a new design and top-botch quality. They also get a new audio system with Aux-in, USB-port and Bluetooth connectivity, and an optional touch-screen navigation system with rear view camera for parking assistance.

As for the engines, there’s a 2.4-litre dual overhead cam gasoline unit with variable valve timing, developing 171 hp, and two 2.2 litre common rail turbo-charged diesel units with 163 and 184 hp. They can be mated to manual or automatic six-speed transmission and on-demand all-wheel-drive system.
