Special Edition Chevrolet Captiva Ikon launched in U.K
GM has introduced it’s Chevrolet Captiva Special Edition in United Kingdom, now becomes an even more desirable car. The reasons for this Special edition isn’t known, but one might assume it has got to do a lot with the state of the global economy which is forcing people to stay out of car showrooms.
The Chevrolet Captiva is on sale since 2007 and has won hearts of many people across India, mainly because of its impressive styling and superb interiors.
This Special Edition is known as Chevrolet Captiva ‘Ikon’ (no relation to the Ford Ikon, except for maybe they are both cars).
The Ikon comes fully loaded with features like air conditioning, electric windows, remote locking, electrically-adjustable mirrors, a glass flip tailgate and quality CD/stereo with steering wheel mounted controls, 20-inch alloy wheels, side steps, privacy glass and a chrome exhaust tailpipe.
The car that is blessed to wear all these accessories is either the 2.0-litre diesel engine or 2.4-litre petrol, which is available at only £15,995 on-the-road.
Since going on sale in 2007, the Captiva SUV has become very much the figurehead of Chevrolet’s model range. In fact, you could say it has become something of an icon…
If not, then you could definitely say it has become an Ikon, for Chevrolet has just introduced an all-new special edition Captiva that offers unbeatable value for money.
On sale now, the Captiva Ikon is based on the generously equipped LS model, meaning it gets such goodies as air conditioning, electric windows, remote locking, electrically-adjustable mirrors, a glass flip tailgate and quality CD/stereo with steering wheel mounted controls.
But on top of the standard kit, the Ikon also benefits from smart styling touches worth over £3,000, including 20-inch alloy wheels, side steps, privacy glass and a chrome exhaust tailpipe.
Powered by a choice of 2.4-litre petrol or 2.0-litre diesel engines, the front-wheel drive Ikon offers all of the attributes of a large SUV with none of the associated expense, making it ideal for those who have outgrown their family hatchbacks but don’t want to pay premium prices, or for those used to a larger SUV but who are looking to cut their costs without cutting back on their style.
What’s more, the Ikon is on offer at less than the equivalent LS models in the Captiva range – the 2.4 model is almost £1,000 cheaper than the petrol LS at only £15,995 on-the-road, while the 2.0-litre diesel is only £16,995 – a saving of over £1,400 against the equivalent VCDi LS.
Not even Chevrolet, with its reputation for providing great value for money, can offer such an incredible deal for long, meaning that to catch your dream Ikon you need to hurry – it won’t be around for ever!
