General Motors India has launched MY 15 Chevrolet Captiva 2.2 premium Sport Utility Vehicle with some exclusive additions to enrich the driving experience.
Captiva comes with additional features like new cluster Ionizer which generates ions to purify and deodorize cabin interiors and new Instrument cluster for improved visibility. It is offered both in manual (MT) and automatic (AT) versions. The ex-showroom Delhi price of MT will be Rs. 25,13,528/- and AT Rs. 27,36,192/-)
“The launch of the all new MY 15 Captiva is in line with our business plan to capture the important SUV market and to grow our market share. Captiva has been welcomed in markets around the world due to its combination of distinctive styling, refinement, best-in-class safety, comfort and versatility and powerful yet frugal diesel powertrain. In India, it has created a niche for itself in the premium SUV segment. Captiva offers what our customers across India have started associating with”, said Arvind Saxena, President and Managing Director, General Motors India.
Captiva has been designed to maximize space. The 5 + 2 Flexi Seating arrangement can comfortably accommodate seven adults and can be transformed into an adaptable luggage carrier. Its fold-flat seating arrangement provides up to 1,565 litres of cargo volume. It has a sporty and muscular exterior design and premium jet-black interiors.
The Captiva’s strong rear design is dominated by a large tailgate and stylish vertical LED tail lamps with indicators and reversing lamps contained in circular elements. Below, the chrome tipped twin exhaust complement the Captiva’s sporty looks.
Practicality has also been accorded priority. Among the new comfort and convenience amenities are cruise control; third-row heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system; an electric parking brake; rain-sensing wipers; and a stylish sunroof.
Other convenience features include bottle holders, small item/coin and cup holders, a parking ticket holder, seat-back pockets and a dual-compartment sliding driver’s armrest. The Captiva also features three 12-volt power outlets that are accessible to all passengers.
The Captiva’s all-leather seating and matching cabin exude total luxury, while an integrated 2-DIN CD/MP3 player with six speakers provides an extremely pleasurable listening experience. Tinted automatic windows, power mirrors, an eight-way power adjustable driver seat and an electronic climate control system are all standard.
Safety is priority in the Captiva 2.2 as it has 6 airbags – driver and front passenger airbags, seat side and roof side airbags, front seatbelt pre-tensioners and load limiters, and height-adjustable front seatbelts come standard. The Captiva’s four-channel ABS with brake assist-equipped discs, provides optimum pedal pressure when it detects an emergency braking situation. The rigid high-strength body shell of the Captiva has been optimized to distribute crash forces over defined load paths to help protect the integrity of the passenger safety cell.
Despite its SUV pedigree, the Captiva is ideal for the urban commute. Its trim exterior proportions ensure class-leading manoeuvrability in everyday driving conditions. The power steering system has been tuned for quick response, precise road feel and optimum driver feedback. The Captiva features a four-link independent rear suspension system and MacPherson struts up front. Suspension settings have been carefully calibrated to deliver car-like ride and handling even on imperfect road surfaces.
As a result of a concerted development effort, the Chevrolet Captiva has been configured to tackle Indian roads, with completely optimized ride and handling characteristics. The result is a comfortable and stable vehicle that can easily take on varying local driving conditions
