Chevrolet Captiva gives you a beautiful design and functionality you need. Continuing the success of previous Captiva, Chevrolet made improvements in every detail and created a truly functional car, perfect for different lifestyles.

Captiva has three rows of modular seats offering the ability to easily transport large luggage and up to seven passengers.

Under the hood you'll find one of the four powerful engines - engines that use the latest generation of six-speed manual or automatic transmission to provide a comfortable yet powerful driving experience. Captiva engines are innovative in terms of technology. Any way you go, you should know that Chevrolet Captiva chassis has been enhanced to provide superior dynamics, improving cornering characteristics and driving comfort.

Chevrolet Captiva comes standard with six airbags. You should know that the traction control system (TCS) keeps you on the road, the electronic stability system (ESC) eliminates hesitation and brake assist system (ABS) is prepared to reduce stopping distances in an emergency case. All these safety features are standard. Another safety feature is the smart system Hill Start Assist, which prevents rolling backward when starting uphill.

Chevrolet Captiva has the latest powerful and fuel-efficient engines; chassis modifications to improve ride and handling and an renewed interior.

Chevrolet was the creator of the first sports utility vehicle back in the 1930's with the iconic Suburban, a nameplate that has spanned an incredible seven decades and is still going strong in the U.S. today.

"Chevrolet Captiva owners have already enjoyed plenty of choice, with five or seven seats and all-wheel or front-wheel drive," says Wayne Brannon, president and managing director of Chevrolet Europe. "The 2011 Captiva offers four new engines mated with a new six-speed transmission; a 2.4 liter petrol unit, a 258 hp 3.0 liter V6 and two variants of our 2.2 liter turbo-diesel."

Between all the changes and changes that have been made, the new Chevrolet Captiva retains the advantages of its versatile, theater-style seating in three rows which adequately accommodate up to seven passengers and the electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system that distributes power as it's needed.

"When the original Captiva came to market back at the end of 2006 it marked a turning point for the brand, a clear signal of Chevrolet's intentions of becoming a mainstream player in the highly competitive European market. Four years on, the Captiva has brought many people to the Chevrolet brand for the first time, with the design, quality and sheer versatility being mentioned as particular highlights by owners," Brannon continued.

It is that kind of functional versatility and can-do philosophy that encapsulates the spirit of a car like the Captiva, and why it is foreseen to interest not only to family drivers but to anyone exploring an alternative to the conventional sedan or hatchback.

Wayne Brannon, Chevrolet Europe's president and managing director, believes now is an excellent opportunity for the new Captiva to make further inroads into market share. "The new model is very much a car of the times, designed for families and their everyday requirements yes, but also for those looking to go out and have some adventures. That's what an SUV like the Chevrolet Captiva is all about, it makes a statement and for many it's an extension of their lifestyle. The new Captiva also personifies what the Chevrolet brand is all about in that it transcends social status or profession and will, we think, appeal to people from all walks of life."

In Europe, Chevrolet Captiva has sold around 120,000 units since the end of 2006, strong sales have been recorded in Italy, Spain, Germany, Turkey, France, and the U.K.

Regarding the new Captiva's silhouette, Taewan Kim said: "Viewing the new model from the A-pillars back, the Chevrolet Captiva essentially retains its handsome silhouette. All of the design changes to the front are harmonious with the profile and contribute to a stronger, more athletic stance. They ensure the new Captiva has a look that is immediately recognizable as a member of the same Chevrolet family as Spark, Cruze and Orlando."

Performance figures for the FWD 2.4 liter VVT engine, when coupled with the manual transmission, include a top speed of 190 km/h and a 0-100 km/h time of 10.5 seconds; in-gear (5th) acceleration from 80 -120 km/h is 15.5 seconds. Fuel consumption on a combined cycle is 8.9 liter/100km and emissions are 210 g/km.

The new Chevrolet Captiva will be a six-speed manual gearbox, available with the 2.4-liter gasoline and 2.2-liter diesel engines.
