Chevrolet Captiva facelift sneaks into India; Starts at 18.74 lakhs


Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

Chevrolet Captiva facelift IndiaSilent launches are becoming a bit too mainstream these days. Manufacturers are choosing not to have a grand launch like they used to earlier. Chevrolet has quietly slipped in the new Captiva for a starting price of 18.74 lakhs. This is the vehicle that was brought to the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo.

Three variants of Captiva are introduced in India with two engines. The old 2.0L diesel continues its stint in India accompanied by a new 2.2L only for the automatic variant. The detailed pricing is as follows:

  • Captiva 2.0 MT – Rs. 18,74,062
  • Captiva 2.0 Xtreme – Rs. 19,48,347
  • Captiva 2.2 AT AWD – Rs. 24,59,000

*All prices are ex-showroom Delhi

The Captiva facelift was launched internationally almost two years ago. Essentially it is the same car with a new design that is in-line with the latest Chevy design philosophy. The brand new addition is the new 2.2L diesel engine which produces 186.5 bhp @ 3800 rpm and 424 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. This engine is only available on the top-end automatic version which comes with a 6 speed autobox.

If you want to opt for the lower variants, you will get the old 2.0-litre diesel engine with 148 bhp mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.

On the inside, the new Captiva gains Jet black interiors and keeps the old 5+2 seating position. Some of the key features on the top variant include:

  • Climate control system
  • Cruise control
  • Rain-sensing wipers
  • Electric parking brake
  • 8-way power adjustable driver seat
  • Remote-operated tailgate glass
  • 6 Airbags
  • Sunroof

The Captiva’s base variants are price very competitively against competition such as Fortuner, Santa Fe and Endeavour. The top variant with the new engine is massively overpriced.
