Chevrolet silently launches the Captiva facelift in India

Recommended Posts

It looks like GM India has launched the Captiva facelift in India without making a noise about it. The new car appears on the Chevrolet India website. The words all new 2.2L 2013 are clearly mentioned. Prices start from Rs. 23,49,802 is all that is given and it isnt sure which city price this is. The Captiva comes in as a CBU so prices will surely be high

Here are pics from the official Chevrolet India website

Captiva has become an old but not an ageing horse. The external design doesn't look fresh but engine is still capable.

Though it is not possible but if Chevrolet wants to keep alive the Captiva they should introduce stripped down version of Captiva having price inbetween 12L to 15L.

Captiva was an excellent SUV before the Fortuner was launched ;nowadays the 4x4 Fortuner cost 25lakhs+ on road Mumbai (it costed 20 on road when launched). The Captiva's only advantage was the A/T box but now the Fortuner has it. GM never markets their products properly and the quality interiors of the Captiva are often overlooked by potential buyer who want a T badge.

Anyways I can't even make out the facelift except for the new tail lamp design because I havn't seen the previous pre-lifted Captiva in Mumbai. Why couldn't they atleast change the design of the alloys, they are the same design when the car was launched for the 1st time?

Also now do the Manual varients get the new 2.2lt engine?

captiva is a very capable SUV. I wish it had a good service back and reliability .

It can surely be the leader in its segment, Its has excellent suspension which not only absorbs whatever road throws it also normalizes it height in case vehicle is carrying full load.

I think GM has done the right thing by keeping the "upgrade" to the Captiva quiet. It is not as if it is a great selling car and with the exception of the dropping of the 2.0 litre engine from the line up there is nothing really substantial out there. Good to see that GM has realized that making a noise about nothing, that too about a product that is not a hot seller, is a pointless and expensive exercise.
