Chevrolet confirms prices for Capitva

Chevrolet has confirmed details of its revised Captiva 4x4.

The changes follow similar revisions to the closely related Vauxhall Antara, and include a face-lift for both the interior and exterior. The most obvious change is a revised front end with the grille, bumpers and door mirrors all new and there are further upgrades inside.

Powering the car are the same two new 2.2-litre diesel engines that feature in the revised Antara. The 161bhp unit comes only with a six-speed manual gearbox, while the stronger 181bhp unit is available with both manual and automatic transmissions.

The basic model averages 44.1mpg and emits 170g/km, while the corresponding figures for models with the stronger engine and a manual gearbox are 42.8 and 174. Pair the more powerful engine with an automatic gearbox and the economy drops to 36.6mpg, while CO2 emissions jump to 203g/km.

The revised range starts with the LS model, which comes only with the less powerful engine, costs 21,995 (2000 more than the cheapest Antara) and is the only model in the range with just two-wheel drive and five seats. However, as on every other model, the standard equipment has been upgraded and now includes stability control, Bluetooth, air-conditioning, rain-sensing wipers and four electric windows.

The rest of the range comes with the more powerful engine, seven seats and on-demand four-wheel drive. LT models also have climate control, half-leather trim, rear parking sensors, automatic headlights and cruise control, while the flagship LTZ cars have leather trim, sat-nav, a rear-view camera, heated front seats and tinted windows.

The full range, which costs from 21,995 to 31,845, will go on sale in May.
