Chevrolet Captiva Freedom Rider Edition heads to Tokyo 2013


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 Freedom Rider EditionChevrolet has modest ambitions in Japan. Thus, when it comes to the Tokyo Motor Show, they don’t spend as much as they would in let’s say the Detroit Motor Show.

So Chevrolet may not bring a huge caravan of concept cars to Tokyo but they are paying attention nonetheless.

The bowtie plans to display three show cars at the Tokyo Motor Show – Chevrolet Captiva Freedom Rider, Chevrolet Sonic Street and Chevrolet Camaro Giovanna Edition.

While the Sonic and Camaro are not strangers to the Indian market, the Captiva is one car that all of us have come to know well.

GM hopes to get the Japanese enthusiast’s attention by placing the Chevrolet Captiva Freedom Rider edition at its booth at this month’s Tokyo Auto Show.

To be very honest, the Chevrolet Captiva Freedom Rider feels like a last minute job for the Tokyo Auto Expo. In fact, any aftermarket tuner would have gotten more appeal from Chevy’s little crossover.

Chevrolet Captiva Freedom Rider features

  • Matt black paint job along with a light blue ground effect kit
  • 20-inch ‘Gianna Crown’ alloys with mild blue accents
  • Chrome finish for the front grille, window surrounds and side steps

It also features a complete body kit from 3D Carbon which features a height-adjustable sports suspension. It also has a roof rack that can hold a full-sized mountain bike.
