The 2014 Chevrolet Captiva was at the Thailand Motor Expo 2014 in its Sport Edition guise. Based on the regular Captiva but with added features (both on the inside and outside), the Captiva Sport Edition is available in a total of three colours: Summit White, Black Sapphire, and Auburn Brown.
The first, noticeable difference is the presence of added accessories like the bumper-mounted LED daytime running lamps and ‘Sport Edition’ branding on the side. On the inside the 7-seater SUV continues with the standard features offered on the regular version but adds a reverse-parking camera to the list.
The vehicle also gets a dual-zone climate control, a keyless entry system, and an 8-speaker 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system (with Bluetooth, USB, and Aux connectivity). On the safety front, the vehicle gets its set of driver aids like ABS, traction control, hill descent and start assists, cruise control, dual airbags for the front occupants, and curtain airbags, too.
Available only in the top-spec LTZ trim, the Captiva SVP (Sport Edition) is offered with two engine options: a 2.4-litre petrol and a 2-litre diesel. The former makes a maximum power of 167 hp @ 5,600 rpm and max torque of 230 Nm @ 4,600 rpm. The diesel is torquier with 400 Nm @ 2,000 rpm but boasts almost identical power figure of 163 hp @ 3,800 rpm. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox, which sends power to all four wheels (AWD).
In Thailand, the regular Chevrolet Captiva range starts at 1,298,000 Baht onward (equivalent to INR 24.39 lakh).
