Chevrolet Captiva 2016 launched in Middle East

Something refreshing has come out of the Chevrolet factory. Presenting the new facelifted 2016 Chevrolet Captiva. From a design perspective, one of the new Captiva’s most noticeable changes is the treatment to the front end, particularly the headlamps, which are more compact and come integrated with daytime running lights. The other major redesign is on the front grille, with the Chevrolet bowtie repositioned on the upper section of the redesigned signature dual-port grille. Likewise, the rear fascia is updated with integrated, stylized chrome exhaust tips and LED taillamps for a sportier, more up-to-date appearance.

Improvements have also been made inside the Captiva. Thanks to the introduction of the new MyLink system, the radio and navigation controls are now integrated and operable from the large full-color touchscreen on the center console. The 2016 Captiva now includes Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. The active and passive stability and safety features also include ESC (Electronic Stability Control) that features ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), TCS (Traction Control System), ARP (Active Rollover Protection), EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution) and HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assist). Additionally, the 2016 Captiva features Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, dual front and curtain air bags, and dual pre-tensioner seatbelts.

The Captiva comes with a 2.4L four-cylinder E85-capable (first-in-class) gasoline engine capable of 123 kW (167 hp) at 5,600 rpm and 23.45 kg-m (230 Nm) at 4,600 rpm. Power is sent to the driving wheels via a first-in-class six-speed automatic transmission with Driver Shift Control (DSC).

The new Captiva will be available in three new exterior colors, including Sun of a Gun Gray Metallic, Old Blue Eyes Metallic and Burnt Coconut Metallic. The LTZ will have integrated stainless steel side steps and an available new five-spoke, two-tone, machine-faced, 19-inch wheels.
