Changes enhance appeal of Chevrolet SUV

Chevrolet has shown a number of changes to its Captiva SUV facelift, having previewed the car at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.

The redesigned model includes new LED tail lamps, angular chrome exhaust tips and a remodelled bumper. A lower bumper has also been added to the front of the car, with a new grille mesh and restyled fog lamps.

The addition of 18-inch alloy wheels help to give the redesigned model a more commanding appearance.

Keyless entry and start is now standard on upper trim levels, while inside new seat colours and fabrics enhance interior appeal.

The new car is available in three trims with the base LS model starting at £21,295, rising to £29,995 for the highest LTZ specification.

A 2.2-litre VCDi engine with both automatic and manual gearbox options are available for the car. It is now available to order.

Our Verdict

Chevrolet Captiva

Chevrolet's seven-seat soft-roader is decent enough, but its high price pitches it against rivals it can’t beat

No doubt that this car will be the one of the best car in the season.

It didn't drive nice before so doubt facelift(s ) fixed it, very old school Korean feel to it, meanwhile the big boys of Korea have long moved forward.

Many of my colleagues in Italy drive this and the Opel equivalent, and so I thought I'd let any would-be buyers of this as a family car know, but for a reason I can't explain, that car sickness is guaranteed if you sit in the back of one of these. I'm always glad to get out again the other end, but reckon if my small children were riding in this I'd be stopping sooner than clear up the vomit. Uggh!
