Chevrolet Captiva

The heavily revised Chevrolet Captiva makes its debut at the Paris motor show this year.??

What makes it different?
Designed to be more memorable than the outgoing model, the updated 4x4 has a new bonnet and grille design, and new headlight clusters. There have been changes under the skin too, because the Captiva's chassis has been retuned to improve cornering.

The interior has also received some attention, with a refreshed look and feel, and the sound system now comes with Bluetooth connectivity, an aux-in socket and a USB port.

The car will be available with three new engines a 169bhp 2.4-litre petrol, and two 2.2-litre common-rail diesels with either 161bhp or 181bhp. While all engines will be Euro V-compliant. Chevrolet has yet to announce their emissions or fuel economy. All cars come with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed auto.

The car won't arrive in showrooms until May next year, and although prices havent been published, Chevrolet says they 'won't be that different' to those of the current model, which starts at 18,580 for a 2.4-litre five-seat version.
