Chevrolet_Captiva_facelift_dieselThe refreshed Captiva comes with new design, engine and additional gear.

By mid-2010, General Motors will launch the facelifted Chevrolet Captiva with a 2.2-liter diesel engine. Co-developed with VM Motori in Italy, the new 2.2-liter engine is expected to boost fuel economy and reduce emissions to Euro 5 levels.

The power and torque values are reportedly 10% better now. The new model could come with a 6-speed manual transmission, a gear more than the existing model. The front fascia could be sharper to give the vehicle a more distinct feel. The Captiva’s headlamp and grille were never its design highlight. The facelifted model should change that.

The existing Captiva, imported from Korea, comes with a 2.0-liter diesel engine.
