The Chevrolet Captiva has been around locally since 2008 but, in fact, it has been sold globally since 2006. When the time came to refresh the Captiva with a mid-cycle face-lift in 2010, we were stuck with the old-look Captiva until late 2012. Now, Chevrolet Europe has announced that it's redesigning the Captiva for a second time and we shudder to think if we'll also get it two years too late.
Anyway, according to Chevrolet Europe, the new-look Captiva will be revealed at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, featuring several changes to the rear and the front of the vehicle. Up front, the refreshed Captiva sports a lower bumper, a new mesh grille, and restyled fog lamps. At the rear, new LED taillamps, angular chrome exhaust tips, and a remodeled bumper complete the look, while new 18-inch alloy wheels further enhance the Captiva's road presence.
The higher-spec'd Captiva variants will now also sport keyless entry and start systems as standard. Inside, the vehicle will have fresh seat colors, new fabrics--with the top-end variants getting leather seats--and restyled trims for the instrument panel. A dual-zone climate system, an ambient lighting package, and heated rear seats round out the Captiva's new features.
"Offering up to seven seats and additional convenience features, the restyled Captiva is a typical SUV for the family," Chevrolet Europe said in its statement.
Can you wait for 2015 to get the refreshed Captiva here, or do you want Chevrolet Philippines to bring it in as soon as possible?
