Default 2011 / 2012 / 2013 Chevrolet Captiva

Autocar has tested the new 2011 Captiva. AC says that it will be launched in few months time. Here is the Link.

http://www.autocarindia.com/news/new...t-drive-review

Here is the PDF of 2011 Chevrolet Captiva downloaded from GM International Website. Looks Good. Six Speed Auto with 181 bhp. Hope GM will give six speed manual also. I think GM wants to take Santa Fe headon. Hope they price it competitively.

The front looks a bit like the new Outlander grille and lights, with the Chevy badge running through the middle.

They haven't changed much otherwise externally, though. I always liked the Captiva, so for me that's a good thing.

The brochure shows a 3.0L V6?! Is that the diesel or is there also a petrol option abroad? The type of fuel is not mentioned in the PDF, which shows two different engines (2.4 and 3.0L, but no 2.2L). BHP ratings are different as well.

PS. They do mention a 6 speed manual transmission in the article:

there could be an option of a six-speed manual gearbox mated to this layout.

Prefer the looks of the current Captiva! Even the alloys are the same on this test car.

This resembles the Chevrolet Equinox from the nose. Definitely looks better than the current model, and I look forward to it.

Looks to be a slightly lengthier than the current model.
I always like the looks Captiva. I never found a reason why it didnt top the charts.

Is it just me or does the front actually resembel to the new BMW X3 .
The back dosent seem to have been changed much though .

I could also never figure out why the captiva never put the charts on fire ?

Unlike Hyundai, GM tends to strip out features from cars launched in India. Cruze is an example of the same and I would expect the new Captiva to be have a subset of features the international model has.

All black Interiors with blue backlight inspired form cruze. Gear lever and some knobs also look similar.

Default Chevrolet Captiva for 2012

IMO the mods should change the name of the thread to captiva for 2012 and not "2011".

@Bluengel180 - I too feel the same. The present Captiva's back looks better IMHO.

In fact for Captiva 2012 pricing would be a big key to its success with XUV 5OO being close on its heels. 2012 would also see a much lower priced 4x2 Yeti from Skoda.

Furthermore if Mahindra prices the Rexton and the Korando competitively Captiva 2012 would really face the heat from the competition.
